Hong Kong Corporate Sevens – 2017

Sunday 10th of December, So Kon Po Sports Ground

Come down and support the Tin Shui Wai Pandas at this year’s Corporate Rugby Sevens!

Teams included the likes of HSBC, Swire, Savills, JLL and Colliers. This year the format remains the same, with teams playing Tag Rugby rather than the previous full contact version.

The Pandas, also known as the Tin Shui Wai Rugby Football Club (TSWRFC), were established in 2011. Many of the core players came through the “Operation Breakthrough” programme (www.breakthrough.hk) and went on to represent Hong Kong at U20s, Hong Kong Development Level and in the Hong Kong A squad.

New Years Day Youth Rugby Tournament – 2017

As Chairman of the Hong Kong Rugby Colts Association, Simon is delighted to be involved in the Prudential NYD Youth Rugby Tournament which is played at the Hong Kong Football Club on the 1st of January every year. It is one of the highlights of youth rugby in Hong Kong. As you can see from the attached link, this is the 17th year of Reid-Kay involvement and it is very much a family affair.

The tournament on 1st January 2017 will be the 50th running of this event.

Hong Kong Corporate Sevens – 2016

Once again, Simon Reid-Kay & Associates and co-sponsor Richards Basmajian sponsored the Tin Shui Wai Pandas club at this year’s Corporate Rugby Sevens which were held on Sunday, 4 December 2016. Teams included the likes of HSBC, Swire, Savills, JLL and Colliers. This year the format changed and we entered a mixed team in addition to the men’s team, playing Tag Rugby rather than the previous full contact version. We are delighted that our mixed team (requiring a team to have a minimum of three women on the field at any one time) won the Plate in their competition.

The Pandas, also known as the Tin Shui Wai Rugby Football Club (TSWRFC), were established in 2011. Many of the core players came through the “Operation Breakthrough” programme (www.breakthrough.hk) and went on to represent Hong Kong at U20s, Hong Kong Development Level and in the Hong Kong A squad.

During their inaugural season, the first team was undefeated and won the Championship Division while the second team won silverware at the National League level. Both teams were promoted at the end of the opening season.

In the 2013/14 season TSWRFC expanded from 2 teams to 4 including both a men’s and a women’s team playing at development level. In that first season the women’s team became champions in the 10’s B league.

The Club’s first two teams currently play in Premiership A and Community League 3, respectively. In the summer of 2015 a Colts section consisting of U19, U16, U14 boys and girls teams was introduced, winning silverware at the end of their first season. The 2015 season also saw wins for the Women Xs (Development League), the Men’s NL 5 division – and the Men’s Thirds XV won the Grand Championship Final – remaining unbeaten for the whole season.

And, last but not least, in season 2015/16 TSWRFC won the RFU ‘Trophy 21’ which is awarded to the “fairest and cleanest team” in Hong Kong – which came as no surprise to us!

New Wine Ministries Hong Kong 

NWMHK is a leading ministry for cancer patients and also provides ministry for asylum seekers and refugees. They go weekly to cancer centres in local communities around Hong Kong while asylum seekers and refugees attend their ministry once a week. Simon Reid-Kay & Associates supports New Wine Ministries by attending their annual charity ball and sponsoring their event programme.

Tin Shui Wai Rugby Football Club – The Pandas

The Pandas are a relatively new rugby team, developed to encourage a greater sense of belonging through participation in team sports. The team was launched in 2011 with players mainly from the Operation Breakthrough scheme, an initiative set up by the Hong Kong Police, in Tin Shui Wai in the New Territories. The Pandas inaugural season was a massive success – they won every game played – and the club advanced to higher divisions where the competition is somewhat tougher. The Club now has senior mens and womens teams as well as a fast growing youth section with team of girls and boys aged 12 to 18. Simon Reid-Kay & Associates are proud to be a main co-sponsor of The Pandas rugby club.
