Sports: A Motivator that Drives Us to Move Forward
The Foundation not only devotes in tennis events, it has also been very supportive in golf and other sports. By competing through sport events, people can learn how to play as a team and become more target-oriented.
With the total monetary award as high as NT$1 million, the TPGA Challenge Tour will be held in Kaohsiung HSIN-YI Golf Club from September 4 to September 6. Having supported golf events over the years, the foundation participates in the golf event through title sponsorship this time to promote golf to the general public.
Other Sports Activities
Fu Hsing National Tennis Cup
In 2014, we sponsored international students of IBMBA of National Sun Yat-sen University to participate in the 2014 Kaohsiung City Cup International Dragon Boat Championship. Coming from different countries including Guatemala, Russia, France, and Slovakia, the international students loved Chinese culture and wanted to experience the folk activity of rowing dragon boats. After learning that the international students have not only traveled far to study in Taiwan but actively participated in local activities, we were deeply touched and, therefore, sponsored them to take part in the competition. Under their hard efforts, they ultimately won second place from among all the College and University Teams.
First established in 2003, the Fu Hsing National Tennis Cup is a tennis tournament officially taken over by Taiwan Fu Hsing in 2006. By organizing the tournaments for consecutive 17 years, the Fu Hsing National Tennis Cup has expanded its scale by enrolling tennis teams from junior high schools, senior high schools, and colleges & universities in addition to the original schoolchildren from the 3rd grade to the 6th grade of elementary schools. With over 1,000 athletes taking part, the Fu Hsing National Tennis Cup have accumulated participants of as high as 13,000 person-times which can be considered as an incubator that nurtures young tennis talents in Taiwan.
In order to promote golf in Southern Taiwan, the foundation has been supporting golf events organized by the Professional Golfer's Association of Taiwan for 4 consecutive years. Through the business sponsorship, we are able to discover more golf athletes with great potential and support them to take part in golf events in Taiwan and foreign countries.
