Public invited to watch 18 Districts Rope Skipping Competition
     The 18 Districts Rope Skipping Competition will be held at the multi-purpose arena of the Sun Yat Sen Memorial Park Sports Centre from 10am to 1pm and 3pm to 6pm on October 15. Members of the public are invited to watch the competition and enjoy the youthful and energetic atmosphere.

     Organised by the Youth Programme Co-ordinating Committee under the Commission on Youth and co-organised by the Home Affairs Department and the District Youth Programme Committees of the 18 districts, the competition is one of the major territory-wide youth programmes of the year.

     Rope skipping is not only good for participants' health but also enhances their team spirit and develops their perseverance, self-confidence and attentiveness, which can help them develop positive values towards life.

     The Rope Skipping Competition is district-based, with one secondary school team and one primary school team coming from each of the 18 districts. Apart from competing for champion, first runner-up, second runner-up and merit awards, the participants will also vie for the best teamwork, most creative routine and best characteristic awards.

     To add colour to the event the Hong Kong Rope Skipping Delegation, which won many medals in the Ninth Asian Rope Skipping Championships in Incheon, Korea this year, will demonstrate at the event and exchange skills with the youths so they can spread positive energy together.

     Free tickets for the competition will be available tomorrow (October 9) at the Home Affairs Enquiry Centres on a first-come, first-served basis while stocks last. Each person can obtain a maximum of two tickets. For enquiries, please call 2835 1546 during office hours.
