    KUALA LUMPUR: United Sikh Sports & Cultural Club are hoping their 10th anniversary will be the start of a new chapter for the Kepong-based club.

    The 10th anniversary dinner at Tatt Khalsa hall held recently served as a fundraiser for the club, which has been actively involved in sports among the Sikh community.

    Club president Amar Singh Dhaliwal, said the club would be able to contribute more to society and sports if they had better facilities.

    “The club is involved in football, netball, hockey and athletics. We have participated in several tournaments in Australia, India, Indonesia and Thailand, besides regularly competing in local tournaments,” said Amar.

    “We run our programmes from a rented office in Kepong. Our plan is to acquire a facility of our own in the same area so we can run more programmes and be self sufficient.

    “We need around RM1 million for the new facility. I hope to collect around RM60,000 to RM70,000 from our fundraising efforts and I hope that we can receive help from the government for the remaining amount.”

    Guest-of-honour Datuk Daljit Singh Dhalliwal said he spoke to deputy sports minister Datuk Razali Ibrahim regarding the club’s plan.

    “He advised us to register the club with the Sports Commissioner Office and I will help the club with the registration procedures,” Daljit said.

    “I hope the government helps this club expand. I'm confident the club would contribute more to the society if they had better facilities.”

Since you're here... we have a small favor to ask...

More people are visiting & reading SPN than ever but far fewer are paying to sustain it. Advertising revenues across the online media have fallen fast. So you can see why we need to ask for your help. Donating to SPN's is vote for free speech, for diversity of opinions, for the right of the people to stand up to religious bigotry. Without any affiliation to any organization, this constant struggle takes a lot of hard work to sustain as we entirely depend on the contributions of our esteemed writers/readers. We do it because we believe our perspective matters – because it might well be your perspective, too... Fund our efforts and together we can keep the world informed about the real Sikh Sikhi Sikhism. If everyone who writes or reads our content, who likes it, helps us to pay for it, our future would be much more secure. Every Contribution Matters, Contribute Generously!
