 Sports & Recreation

The Club invested a great deal of resources towards the development of sports and recreation in Hong Kong, catapulting the city onto the world stage

  • allocated part of the reclaimed land for Sha Tin Racecourse for the construction of the Hong Kong Sports Institute (formerly Jubilee Sports Centre) in the 1970s and further funded the conversion of the old athletes’ hostel into a multi-purpose training and coaching centre in 2013

  • donated funds to build the equestrian venues for the 2008 Beijing Olympic Games, plus committed the support of its Equine Hospital, Racing Laboratory and other facilities during the Games period; the Club was hence officially recognised as “Outstanding Contributor, Beijing 2008 Olympic Games Equestrian Events.”

  • organised the Jockey Club Youth Football Development Programme in the last two years to enhance youth’s organisational and leadership skills through football coach training, personality workshops, community service and visit programmes, with Manchester United as partner on one of the programme elements

The Club also promoted various sports and recreational activities for the well-being of the public

  • funded reclamation in Causeway Bay which led to the creation of Victoria Park in the early 1950s and later contributed to the construction of Hong Kong’s first Olympic-sized swimming pools

  • examples of other sports and recreational facilities: Ocean Park, Kowloon Park, Hong Kong Park, three public riding schools and Kau Sai Chau Public Golf Course

  • donated to the South China Athletic Association for the redevelopment of its sports facilities on Caroline Hill Road, to help ease the shortage of pitches and sports facilities in the community
