Leisure and cultural facilities free of charge again on Sunday

*********************************************************



The public can again enjoy the facilities of the Leisure and Cultural Services Department free of charge on Sunday (July 6).

"It was very encouraging that the first Open Day on July 1 was so well-received that over 200,000 people enjoyed free use of various leisure and cultural facilities," a spokesman for the department said.

During Sunday's Open Day, admission is free at all of the department's 35 swimming pools and its six 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 admission to the pools and museums. People can just show up at the venue of their choice and they will be admitted subject to the normal capacity restrictions.

"For sports facilities, the free permits for badminton courts in the 18 districts have almost all been distributed," he added.

Meanwhile, only a limited number of free permits for squash courts, table tennis tables, American pool tables and fitness rooms are still available.

The spokesman said the Open Days were proving successful in encouraging a healthier lifestyle and allowing the public to familiarise themselves with the department's facilities.

"People who wish to enjoy our sports facilities free of charge on July 6 are advised to approach the respective venues now to check the remaining permits," he said.

The public is also reminded that the free permits for the third Open Day on July 13 will be distributed at various indoor sports venues starting on July 7.

The other two Open Days are scheduled for July 20 and 27 and free permits will be available for distribution on July 14 and 21 respectively.

The five Open Days for the month of July were organised by the department as part of the Government's Relaunch Hong Kong Campaign.
