Oct 12, 2019: Yellow, red, white and blue — inspired by the colours of the Malaysian flag — the newly-refurbished multipurpose sports courts of PPR Lembah Subang 1 are giving its residents something to cheer about.

Gone are the old, dilapidated sepak takraw courts with their floodlights in a state of disrepair. They had also posed a safety concern to those using the courts.

With the refurbishment, they are now looking bright, vibrant and most importantly, restored to multi-functional courts suitable for futsal complete with two goal posts and two badminton courts.

The residents wasted no time in enjoying the “brand new” sports courts. When visited PPR Lembah Subang 1 in early September, scores of children can be seen having a blast playing at the courts.

The courts were completed on Aug 30, just in time for National Day, with the help of more than 40 volunteers from PPR Lembah Subang 1 residents, Paramount Property, Nippon Paint Malaysia and Many had worked over six hours a day to meet the deadline.

The refurbishment project is part of the Sayangi Rumahku campaign, a joint effort by, Paramount Property Development and Nippon Paint Malaysia in support of the National Community Policy or Dasar Komuniti Negara (DKN) formulated by the Housing and Local Government (KPKT) Ministry to improve the lives of the B40 group.

The Sayangi Rumahku campaign shifts its attention to PPR Seri Cempaka’s sports courts after this, followed by those of Perumahan Awam Seri Kedah.

This private sector initiative is expected to benefit close to 16,000 residents living in 4,116 units in the three public housing schemes.

Watch out for Seri Cempaka’s sports courts makeover next!
