Wing Ding 2014

The annual charity squash Wing Ding competition was played this month at the Hong Kong Football Club. Connaught Finance participated for the sixth year in a row, which last year raised HKD $2.1 million for the children in need of Hong Kong.

The game format is that each team is given a color and must then choose a fancy dress outfit to match, in which they then have to play squash.

This colorful event consists of 14 teams of ten players. Each participant plays against his equivalent in the opposing team for 3 minutes. Then they run to the next court for further 3 minutes non-stop  if you get to the next court first you start serving for points.

This spectacle sees outfits such as chickens, monks, cowboys and Vickers running from court to court, pushing their squash limits to help to raise funds for the charity.

All funds are fed into operation Santa Claus which is also supported by the other events in Hong Kong operated by Standard Chartered Bank, JP Morgan and HSBC.
