June
Six-month advance bookings of LCSD recreation and sports facilities
*******************************************************************

Starting from Friday (July 1), bona-fide associations can book Leisure and Cultural Services Department's (LCSD) recreation and sports facilities six months in advance.

This newly relaxed booking arrangement is aimed at encouraging people to actively participate in recreation and sports activities during their leisure time and get into the habit of doing exercises regularly.

The relaxation will enable bona-fide associations to apply for block booking of selected recreation and sports facilities six months in advance. These facilities will include the main arenas of sports centres, activity rooms, squash courts and fitness rooms.

An LCSD spokesman said that at present, bona-fide associations can make reservations of the facilities three months in advance.

"The new arrangement will allow more flexibility for the associations when organising their events. While the associations will have more time to plan their events, the utilisation rate of these facilities will also be increased," the spokesman said.

"This new measure has gained full support of the Community Sports Committee of the Sports Commission after detailed discussions."

The relaxation of the booking procedure is applicable to the following recreation and sports facilities:

(1) Main arenas and activity rooms during non-peak hours (from 7am to 5pm, Mondays to Fridays except public holidays), and

(2) Squash courts and fitness rooms during all opening hours.

The bona-fide associations generally refer to the non-governmental organisations in all districts such as social welfare agencies, centres for the disabled, elderly centres and youth centres, affiliated clubs of national sports associations, women associations, mutual aid committees, kai fong associations, cultural and art performing groups, commercial offices as well as other societies.

The application form (LCS189) is available on the LCSD's website http://www.lcsd.gov.hk .

Completed forms should be submitted to the respective venues.
