The Corporate Sevens Tournament (previously known as the Professions Sevens) celebrated its 30th Year Anniversary in style the tournament which was held on 1st December 2013 was the most successful to date in terms of fund raising. Pledging to raise a million HK dollars for the children of Po Leung Kuk and the Yuen Long community, the sixteen corporate teams did themselves proud. The project fondly known as Pitch Perfect will convert three derelict tennis courts into a world class multi surface sports pitch enabling children to play a variety of sports including rugby, football and soft ball.
Mr. Nick Bradstreet, Deputy Managing Director Savills said “We hit the refresh button on our tournament and we are delighted with the result. This is HK at its best. With the support from our partners: the Macquarie Group, the participating teams and the HKRFU we are able to deliver Pitch Perfect.”
“The HKRFU is proud to be working with Po Leung Kuk, and we are committed to a long term partnership with them through the “Tackling Life” rugby programme. This new pitch will allow even more youngsters the opportunity to participate in sport, and will bring lots of enjoyment to thousands of boys and girls in the years ahead” said Mr Vern Reid, CEO HKRFU.
“Macquarie is very pleased with the results from the re-energised 2013 tournament. We’re looking forward to continuing our strong relationship with Po Leung Kuk and the HKRFU through the Tackling Life project, which will benefit greatly from this new rugby field”, said Alex Harvey, Macquarie Group CEO Asia.
Ms. Angela O.K. Leong, Chairlady of PLK said “Our heartfelt thanks to: Savills, the Macquarie Group, HKRFU and FCC Charity Fund for this generous donation. The multi-purpose pitch will further enhance our children’s passion towards rugby and indeed a variety of sports.”
