AFTER a lapse of many years, the China Club hosted a basketball competition over the Easter weekend.
Club president Dixon Seeto said four teams — Kai Ping, Tung Kung, Chinese Youth Social Cultural Association and Zhong Xin — competed in the tournament.
He said Tung Kung won the tournament and prize donated by Joji's CafÃ©/Takeaways and the club planned to have more and larger basketball tournaments.
"The event brought back good memories of the glory days when the China Club teams were a powerhouse in basketball and soccer tournaments," Seeto said.
"Basketball teams such as Seabreeze, China Club, Black and White were basketball champions of that era."
Seeto said the club aimed to expand its indoors and outdoors sports program.
"Over the Easter weekend there was a Chinese chess competition which was well patronised and brought a touch of culture.
"The committee said table tennis competitions were planned to be held in the hall shortly.
"Social gatherings and celebrating Chinese festivals are also planned.
"The club is also used for meetings and socials by the various provincial associations and Chinese groups."
