Leisure Facilities Free Use Day set for July 1 to celebrate HKSAR's 20th anniversary
     In celebration of the 20th anniversary of the establishment of the Hong Kong Special Administrative Region, the Leisure and Cultural Services Department (LCSD) will specially hold a Leisure Facilities Free Use Day on July 1 (Saturday) to share the joy, while at the same time to encourage people of all ages to do more physical exercise and develop a healthy lifestyle through bringing exercise into daily life.

     Various fee-charging LCSD recreation and sports facilities will be open for free use by members of the public on July 1. These facilities include:
  • Indoor leisure facilities: badminton courts, tennis courts, basketball courts, netball courts, volleyball courts, squash courts, table tennis tables, American pool tables, billiard tables, sport climbing walls, bowling greens, golf facilities, fitness rooms, activity rooms, dance rooms and a cycling track;
  • Outdoor leisure facilities: tennis courts, tennis practice courts, bowling greens, batting cages, sport climbing walls, archery ranges, a rope course and golf facilities (excluding camp facilities, sports grounds and artificial and natural turf pitches);
  • Public swimming pools (excluding Wan Chai Swimming Pool); and
  • Craft at water sports centres.

     Bookings for free use of the available land-based leisure facilities and craft at water sports centres on July 1 can be made at the Leisure Link booking counters at LCSD venues (except for self-service kiosks) from 9am on June 24 (Saturday) onwards. Each person can only book one free session on a first-come, first-served basis irrespective of the types of leisure facilities.

     No prior booking is required for public swimming pool facilities. Members of the public may line up at the entrances of the swimming pools for free admission on a first-come, first-served basis.
