To further promote the "Sport for All" culture in the community, the Sports Commission has organised the Hong Kong Games (HKG) biennially since 2007. HKG is a territory-wide major multi-sport event with the 18 District Councils (DCs) as participating units. The objectives of the HKG are to provide districts with more opportunities for sports participation, exchanges and co-operation, and to encourage active public participation in sports. Apart from improving sporting standards at the district level, HKG can also strengthen the public's sense of belonging to the district they live in and help promote community cohesion through facilitating communication and fostering friendship among the 18 districts. The 8th HKG is organised by the Sports Commission and co-ordinated by its Community Sports Committee, with the 18 DCs, the Leisure and Cultural Services Department, the Sports Federation & Olympic Committee of Hong Kong, China, the Hong Kong Amateur Athletic Association, the Hong Kong Badminton Association, the Hong Kong Basketball Association, the Hong Kong Football Association, the Hong Kong Amateur Swimming Association, the Hong Kong Table Tennis Association, the Hong Kong Tennis Association, the Volleyball Association of Hong Kong, China, the Hong Kong Paralympic Committee & Sports Association for the Physically Disabled and the Hong Kong Sports Association for Persons with Intellectual Disability as co-organisers.
