Tickets going fast for free use of indoor sports facilities on July 1


The July 1 Open Day organised by the Leisure and Cultural Services Department (LCSD) has received an overwhelming response from the public.

"Nearly all the free permits for badminton courts in the 18 districts have been distributed," a spokesman for the department said today (June 27).

LCSD has scheduled five Open Days for the month of July as part of the Government's Relaunch Hong Kong Campaign. The programme is to encourage people to get more exercise to strengthen their physiques and build up resistance to disease. It also provides an ideal opportunity for people who have not been making use of these public facilities to familiarize themselves with them.

Only a limited number of free permits for squash courts, table tennis tables, American Pool tables and fitness rooms are still available for July 1.

"People who want to enjoy sports facilities free of charge on July 1 are advised to approach the respective venues as quickly as possible to get the remaining permits."

Free permits for the second LCSD Open Day on July 6 will be distributed at the various sports centres starting June 30, the spokesman said.

The other Open Days are scheduled for July 13, 20 and 27 and free permits will be distributed on July 7, 14 and 21 respectively.

During the five Open Days, admission is also free at all of the LCSD's 35 public swimming pools and its six world-class museums -- Hong Kong Museum of History, Hong Kong Heritage Museum, Hong Kong Museum of Art, Hong Kong Science Museum, Hong Kong Space Museum (Exhibition Halls only) and Hong Kong Museum of Coastal Defence. No permits are required for the use of these facilities. Members of the public may just show up at the venue of their choice and they will be admitted subject to the normal capacity restrictions.
