Phuket Loves U (PLU) Club
October 12-14, 2012, Phuket, Thailand
TSG 2012 Organizer's Announcement:
Phuket Loves You (PLU) Club is proud to be hosting the TSG 2012 Games and the third gathering to be held in Phuket, Thailand. The dates for this year's games will be October 12 to 14, 2012.
The Straits Games (TSG) started as a friendly annual sports event between LPG – Leadership Programme Graduates of Malaysia and MAW – Men after Work of Singapore. The TSG goal was to foster friendship and promote a healthy lifestyle in the GLBT communities. With the rapid growing interest of TSG, it has gradually expanded their participants from Singapore, Malaysia, Hong Kong, Japan and Thailand. This is the eleventh series of annual games and we are hopeful that Australia will join the expanding community of nations
SPORTS & MATCHES
The following sports will be played during TSG 2012:
(1) Amazing Shopping Race
(2) Bowling Championship
(3) Badminton Team – DOUBLE Championship
(4) Badminton SINGLE Championship
(5) Beach Volleyball Friendly Matches
(6) Swimming Friendly Matches
(7) Volleyball Championship
(8) Tennis Team – DOUBLE Championship
The principal goal of TSG is to promote friendship between participants from each respective country. Winning is nice but making new friends is better. Feedback received from each country previous years were that we did not go far enough in meeting this goal. This year PLU Club will be creating some special social activities that will address this issue. It will be fun but also allow us to breakdown those barriers that prevent us from getting to know each other. Details for this event will be shared, as we get closer to the games.
The Game Format (how many teams, singles/doubles, games, points for winning games, knock out/round robin etc.) for the all the respective sports will be sent to you at later stage. Please also follow us at http://www.facebook.com/?groups/hkttsg2012/ for the latest update.
The organizing committee has the right to alter the format; games scheduled and date of the tournament if necessary. Participating teams will be informed of any changes.
