Hong Kong Sports Institute
Font Size

The Hong Kong Sports Institute (formerly Jubilee Sports Centre) was completed in 1982 with the partial funding from the Club. As a training and development centre for the city's elite athletes, the Institute has since nurtured many outstanding local athletes, including Hong Kong's first Olympic gold medallist, windsurfer Lee Lai-shan, and world champion cyclist Wong Kam-po. To date, the Club’s donations to the Institute amount to nearly HK$700 million, including HK$103 million in 2013 to redevelop the old athletes’ hostel into a multi-pupose elite training and coaching centre, which will support the development of Paralympic sports, junior elite athletes and coach education.
