What do you like about HKFC?
There are many different aspects of the Club that I particularly like such as the badminton courts, swimming pool and the gym. I also enjoy the food that is served and appreciate how the staff members cater to our specific needs such as providing a vegetarian option. However, one thing that I quite admire is how the Club cares for the environment and tries to find methods to enhance sustainability.
What do you like about being a Junior Associate Member (JAM) of HKFC?
I really like how being a member gives me the opportunity to use the variety of different facilities such as the squash courts. I also enjoy playing with my teammates on Friday evenings and on weekends.
What do you look forward to in the development of JAM?
I look forward to spending time with other players of all ages and being able to train and play with them. I also wish to be able to enhance my skills and learn about different playing styles when playing with other members and I hope the players around me can improve and enjoy their badminton as well.
What will be your contribution to the Badminton Society as a JAM?
I wish to spend more time with younger players and use my experience as a Hong Kong athlete to give them advice and guide them. I can do this by taking the time out and acting as an assistant coach as it can also benefit me to improve my leadership skills. I can also contribute to the Badminton Society by participating in more social/fundraising events and HKFC competitions such as the invitational mixed grouped competitions where members can play against other players from different clubs.
