Fitspiration Badminton and Table Tennis Tournament At KDU College

 
“KDU Fitspiration”, an idea of to be fit is not a destination, but is a way of life! Table tennis sportsmen on the move. 
 
Student Alumni Centre (SAC) organised Fitspiration Badminton and Table Tennis Tournament in KDU College, Damansara Jaya campus. The concept of “KDU Fitspiration” is well accepted by students, who wished that sports event of this kind could be held more regularly in KDU campus. 
Maintaining fitness in one’s daily life is a long life process, aptly pointed out by YB Khairy Jamaluddin, Malaysia Youth & Sports Minister, during his visit to KDU last year. He said it is highly necessary for students to optimise the opportunity of exercising by fitting workouts along daily schedule.

To actualise this concept advocated by the minister, KDU developed an initiative to inspire fitness into student’s daily life—“KDU Fitspiration”. This initiative is a springboard to propagate the idea into students’ mind that being fit is not a destination, but is a way of life!

On 29 May, the Student Alumni Centre (SAC) initiated the Fitspiration Badminton and Table Tennis Tournament, which was held in KDU College, Damansara Jaya campus. The objective of the event is to discover new talents, as well as give the organising committee, made up of students, an opportunity to display their leadership and teamwork skills as well as in this sports event experience. The one-day tournament saw a crowd of participants turning up to support the objective.

About 60 students participated in this tournament with different categories. Throughout the tournament, SAC managed to gather new talents and allowed the student committee to learn how to organise a fair and well-conducted sports events.

Lee Pui Min, winner of the badminton men’s single category, commented that he wished sports event of this kind could be held more regularly in KDU campus. Another student, Ng Yi Chang, one of the winners of badminton men’s double category, applauded the idea of organising this event as it helped to identify new talents that can represent KDU in university level competition.

Throughout this tournament, participants showcased an excellent spirit of sportsmanship amongst themselves, which enabled the event to run smoothly with the objectives achieved.
