Open Letter to the HK Govt. to improve the development of Skateboarding in Hong Kong

At the moment, the 8 years old minimum age limit and restrictions for the deep bowl access are hindering the development of Skateboarding in Hong Kong. On behalf of the Hong Kong Federation of Roller Sports, the National Sport Association for skateboarding in Hong Kong, I have written to the Director & Deputy Director of Leisure and Cultural Services Department (LCSD), the Commissioner for Sport and the Legislative Councillor for Sports, Performing Arts, Culture and Publication. Here is the summary of the letter:

  • The Hong Kong Federation of Roller Sports (HKFRS) welcomes the government’s commitment to promoting urban sports and developing sports as an industry. In particular, HKFRS supports the development of skateboarding in Hong Kong and calls for changes to the management of skateboard facilities, including dropping the minimum age limit and building parks to Olympic standards. With these changes, HKFRS believes that Hong Kong can become a leader in skateboard park design and development in Asia.
