Our pick of 5 Hong Kong sporting events to play or watch!

1. Hong Kong Corporate Sevens 

Date: Dec 9 (Sun)

Time: 9.30am-8pm 

Venue: So Kon Po Recreation Ground 

55 Caroline Hill, Causeway Bay 

Admission: FREE

 

Rugby and charity tend to go hand-in-hand and the Corporate 7s is no exception, with their goal not only to organise a fun family day out and stage an action-packed tournament, but also to raise funds for the Po Leung Kuk Tackling Life Programme- an initiative aimed at helping over 3000 children in building self-esteem, interpersonal skills and grasp of English through the sport.

 

Speaking of personal development, the Exiles, a touch rugby team comprised of locally-based Filipinas, will also be there looking to build up match experience through the event- a testament to rugby's universal draw. 

 

 

2. Hike to Tai O Fishing Village 

Date: Dec 9 (Sun)  

Time: 9.30am-5.30pm

If you're new to the city, on the lookout for meet new people and keen to explore the natural scenic side of Hong Kong, look no further than Lani's regular hikes and outdoor events that allow you to do just that pretty much FOC! 

Chances are that you'll be on the waiting list for their 14km hike from Tung Chung to Tai O (one of Hong Kong's few remaining fishing villages) and lunch this Sunday as spots seem to sell like hotcakes, so be sure to keep an eye out for future events like this.
