THE Youth and Sports Ministry has proposed to build three courts for sports in each parliamentary constituency, said Kelana Jaya parliamentary liaison officer Ong Chong Swen.

“The courts can be used for futsal, badminton, sepak takraw and basketball,” she said.

“However, due to the scarce availability of land in the Kelana Jaya parliamentary constituency and other areas, I suggested that the Ministry have an alternative programme by implementing a coupon system to allow the people to redeem usage of space at existing futsal courts and other sports venues.”

Ong was speaking at the prize presentation of the inaugural Kelana Jaya Parliamentary Liaison Officer Nine-A-Side Football Tournament.

Sixteen teams, including three from various community police groups, participated in the event that was jointly organised by Ong’s office and the SK Dato’ Onn Jaafar Parent-Teacher Association (PTA).

The one-day tournament took place at the USJ 15 Vision School (Sekolah Wawasan) field.

ABE FC emerged champion and pocketed RM1,000 and a trophy. The second prize of RM500 and a trophy went to the SK Dato’ Onn Jaafar PTA, while USJ8 Police FC won the third prize of RM250 and a trophy.

Four teams won consolation prizes comprising hampers and trophies. There were also lucky draw prizes for four lucky teams.

SK Dato’ Onn Jaafar PTA chairman Dr Abdul Razak Zainuddin said the tournament, opened to the Kelana Jaya community aimed at nuturing football talents and get the youths to participate in a sports activity.

Head on: The youths really getting into the game.

“The response has been good, with multi-racial participants comprising mostly men in their 20’s and 30’s,” he said.

Ong said: “We also want to encourage the youths to enjoy a healthy lifestyle by getting them outdoors to play sports like football, instead of being cooped up indoors surfing the Internet or watching TV.

The organisers said they were open to having the football tournament as an annual event and possibly host mini-editions by organising them according to state constituencies (Seri Setia and Subang Jaya) or neighbourhoods (USJ, Subang Jaya and Bandar Sunway).

Former international football player Datuk Abdul Ghani Minhat, whose grandchildren study at SK Dato’ Onn Jaafar in USJ 15, was present to lend his support to the event.

Abdul Ghani shared that he had played for the Selangor team from 1952 till 1969, and had coached renowned Malaysian football legends like Datuk Soh Chin Aun, Datuk Santokh Singh and Mokhtar Dahari.
