LCSD appeals to public to participate in Sport For All Day 2023
In order to continuously build a “Sport for All” culture in the community, the Leisure and Cultural Services Department (LCSD) will organise the Sport For All Day 2023 on August 6 (Sunday). Most leisure facilities under the purview of LCSD will be open for free use and recreation and sports programmes will be held in designated sports centres across districts. Participants can also view the live webcast of sports demonstration. Members of the public are welcome to participate in the event.
The focal sport of Sport For All Day this year is “Fitness Exercise for Wellness”. The LCSD will organise a series of physical fitness demonstrations and play-in sessions for public participation to encourage the public to pursue a healthy body-mind lifestyle through regular physical exercise.
Free recreation and sports programmes and activity coupons distribution
The LCSD will hold diversified and free recreation and sports programmes from 2pm to 6pm on August 6 at designated sports centres in 18 districts. Health talks, fitness corners, sports activities for parents, children and adolescents, as well as sports demonstrations and fun games for the elderly and persons with disabilities, will be arranged. Activity coupons will be distributed from 8.30am on July 24 (Monday) at LCSD District Leisure Services Offices and designated venues in the 18 districts.
Sports demonstrations will be featured in a live webcast via the event dedicated website and the "LCSD Plusss" Facebook page on the event day from 2pm. Members of the public can experience the vigour of sports demonstrations at home through online platforms.
Free use of leisure facilities and booking arrangements
At the same time, various LCSD leisure facilities will also be open for free use by the public on Sport For All Day 2023 to develop a habit of regular exercise. Booking for the free use of facilities on August 6 can be made at Leisure Link booking counters in various districts (except self-service kiosks) and via Internet booking start from 7am on July 31 (Monday) onwards, on a first-come, first-served basis (the Leisure Link booking counter services at Tuen Mun Recreation and Sports Centre will start from 7.45am and water sports centres; holiday camps and District Leisure Services Offices will start from 8.30am). Each person can only book one free session irrespective of the type of leisure facility. Due to the anticipated high use of online booking services by the public, it may take a longer time for users to log into the system for booking during peak hours in the morning.
