Community Games and Sports Festival 2014
Through sports, one can learn and gain so much invaluable lessons. Especially in our fast-paced, economy-driven nation, time is a precious resource and there is nothing more rewarding than a good game of your favourite sports with your loved ones. Your health will also improve through sports and activities. Talk about killing two birds with one stone!
The Community Sports Club (CSC) is an initiative by the People’s Association (PA) which aims to promote social cohesion and racial harmony through sporting activities – at the same time safeguarding and maintaining our nation’s prosperous peace.
