This Squash Charity Event dated back as early as 1998. It was originally an annual tournament in the name of Yuen Kam Wing (Wing) to keep alive his spirit and memory and was initiated by Phil Head and Nick Rickets. Since 2003 it was permanently re-housed at the HKFC and took the format of a crazy fancy dress squash marathon with players waiting for the “Ding” to run from one court to another in ridiculous outfit.
In the context of Covid, this year’s format is slightly different and the players will compete in one single marathon games racing to maximum possible points for their teams. More details on www.hkfcsquash.com/wing-ding
2004 was the year that the partnership with Operation Santa Claus was established and has remained ever since. This charity is run through the SCMP and RTHK and benefits numerous local charities each and every year with a focus on the Christmas period. (https://osc.scmp.com/)
Best of luck and a big thank you to our crazy 10; Neal, Jason, Victor, Pete, Nick B., Mac, Raphael, Wilson, Steve and Adrien.
Our team’s fund raising campaign is working full steam with junior tournaments, free coaching and more being organised.
On behalf of Operation Santa Claus, thank you all for your support and contributions!
