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

July 11, 2019

1. Hong Kong Tag Super League Round 1 

Date: July 13 (Sat) 

Time: 7.30pm-9.00pm 

Venue: King's Park, Yau Ma Tei 

Admission: FREE to spectate 


Good news - Hong Kong competitive tag rugby makes its return this Saturday at King's Park! 


A variant of touch rugby where removing tags on either side of a player's shorts counts as a tackle, the game favours speed and agility over strength, allowing for guys and girls to compete side-by-side. 


Come along and see what it's all about! 


2. Castle Peak Road at Nightfall 

Date: July 13 (Sat) 

Time: 2.45pm-7.00pm    

Venue: McDonald's, Peking Road (meetup point) 

Admission: FREE


Soak in the sunset, burn some calories and challenge yourself with a 30km run from Tsim Sha Tsui, going, past Castle Peak Road and finishing at Tuen Mun Siu Lun Sports Ground.  


You won't be alone in this endeavour, with a group of local runners 屎溝油蛻變市郊遊, a play on words meaning 'excrement mixing with oil transforming into a city tour (it only comes across in Cantonese) leading the way and helping you along. 


An easier alternative is available by joining Eastern Jogger on a similar route but with half the distance, starting at Tsuen Wan West MTR Exit D instead. 


3. Inner Yoga with Stella (Free Outdoor Class)  

Date: July 14 (Sun)  

Time: 9.00am-10.00am

Build a strong foundation through standing postures, backbending, create mobility in the hips, knees, ankles, and improve endurance through forward bending. 


Bring a yoga mat, water and a smile and keep an eye out for future events like this - perfect for anyone interested to try out yoga but not fork out a fortune just yet.

Be sure to bring a dark and white shirt (or incur a fine of $20) for the sake of ensuring enough numbers on both teams, appropriate footwear for an astro turf (that means no studs) and keep an eye out for other futsal, 8v8, 9v9, 10v10, 11v11 games!
