Morse Park Sports Center (摩士公園體育館) provides two table-tennis tables and one multi-purpose main arena, which can be converted into one volleyball court, one basketball court or four badminton courts. The space is quite limited similar to Cheung Sha Wan Sports Center, which was talked about earlier.

The sports center is located near the Lok Fu MTR station with about five minutes walk. The way to the place needs some familiarity in the area. Please refer to the previous entry “Morse Park Sports Center – Direction”.

The one-floor building of Cheung Sha Wan Sports Center (長沙灣體育館) can only provide one multi-purpose main arena, which can be converted into one volleyball court, one basketball court or four badminton courts. However, on weekdays from 7 a.m. to 5 p.m., the badminton court no.1 can be converted into two table-tennis tables while the main arena can actually be used for other sports, which have not been mentioned, such as archery.

Cheung Sha Wan Sports Center is located very near the Cheung Sha Wan MTR station, so it is very easy for visitors to come. Please refer to the previous entry “Cheung Sha Wan Sports Center – Direction”.
