The Manager's Notes

General Manager's Notes

As we come to the end of another School year, I wish you a wonderful summer holiday period. For those travelling overseas, stay safe and enjoy the adventure. For those staying in Hong Kong pitting your wits against the summer typhoons, again, stay safe and enjoy the adventure!

World Cup

At the time of writing, the 2018 FIFA Football World Cup Russia is well under way. For those who have had a small wager, I do hope you are having more luck than myself. I knew it was a bad omen having picked the Netherlands as my outside favorites to win the Tournament, Germany to win their first game and Raheem Sterling to score a goal!

Regardless, I hope you are all enjoying the coverage of the tournament at both the Club and DotCod. As a reminder, all matches which start before 11pm will be broadcast LIVE at various locations around the Club.

Other major Sporting events will also be shown in tandem wherever possible. Please refer to our website for details or call Sports Desk on 3511 8698.

Summer Sports

Lawn Tennis is now in full ‘swing’ with courts available every weekend, weather permitting. Croquet is also available. For those interested in learning more about this (ex) Olympic Sport (possible quiz question) an Introductory session will be available on 28 July and 25 August between 2.30pm and 5.30pm.

Sports for All-Day

Every year, HKCC supports the ‘Sports for All Day’ initiated by Leisure and Cultural Services Department. On Sunday 5th August, HKCC will organize an ‘Introduction to Cricket’ with theory and practical cricket games conducted by the Club’s professional coaches. More details will be available by mid-July.

Summer Camps

For those staying in Hong Kong during the Summer, the Club is organising numerous Camps throughout July and August including seven Sports Fun Camps, seven Tennis Camps, three LEGO Workshops, and two Explorer Camps by YMCA. Please contact Sports Desk 3511 8698.

Boundary Bar
Darts, Pool and Club Trivia

With the popularity of the newly opened Boundary Bar, there has been a resurgence of interest in both Darts and Pool with suggestions of internal leagues, competition and open hostility. Those of you who would like to assist in setting up a ‘league’, please contact me directly.

The first “Pub Trivia Nights” will be held on 20th July.

Racing Season

The 2017/2018 Racing season is coming to an end. The last meeting at Happy Valley will be Wednesday 11th July with the last meeting at Shatin on Sunday 15th July. The Club is offering special promotions packages for HKCC Private Race Boxes at both Happy Valley and Shatin race courses. For more information and booking, please contact our Members Service Department on 3511 8678.
