Roof for sports facility

SERI KEMBANGAN: Youths living in Section 6 can now play basketball and volleyball in the public court come rain or shine after a roof is completed.
Seri Kembangan assemblyperson Ean Yong Hian Wah said this will be good news to youngsters as an open court meant they cannot play often.
“Residents have requested this overhead cover due to the weather; this is good news for youths as they can play even when it’s raining or sunny,” said Ean Yong on April 9.

The basketball/volleyball court will also experience less wear and tear as they are shielded by the 17.5m-tall cover from the elements.
Ean Yong said the project was approved late last year and the Petaling District Land Office had already awarded the tender to an undisclosed contractor earlier this month.
He said details are still sketchy about when it will be completed but the RM197,000 project is a done deal as the money has been allocated and the tender awarded.
The overhead cover is part of the state government new village committee’s project and Section 8 and Taman University Indah have both received similar upgrades to sports facilities.
Other new villages throughout Selangor such as Kampung Baru Kuang, Kampung Baru Sungai Besar and Kampung Bukit Angkat have also benefited from the projects.
Ean Yong also said the overhead cover was promised by the previous state administration for decades but did not materialise.
Also present was Subang Jaya Municipal Council (MPSJ) councillor Ng Sze Han.
