PETALING JAYA (Oct 27, 2019): The sports court of PPR Seri Cempaka public housing scheme in Pantai Dalam, Kuala Lumpur will see a total makeover very soon under the Sayangi Rumahku campaign.

The campaign began with the refurbishment of the sports court at PPR Lembah Subang 1 in Petaling Jaya, Selangor. The refurbishment was completed end-August and similar works at PPR Seri Cempaka in Pantai Dalam will commence next in early November.

The refurbishment of PPR Seri Cempaka’s sports court will convert the existing netball court into a multipurpose court that can be used for futsal and badminton as well. Additionally, there are plans to install a flexible netball post and two futsal goal posts.

The present damaged court surface will be patched up and extended significantly by 20ft to ensure greater practicality and safety for the residents of the public housing.

On top of that, the court is expected to don a fresh new coat of paint similar to that of PPR Lembah Subang 1 – showcasing colours of the Malaysian flag but with its own unique design. 

The refurbishment is estimated to take about seven weeks to complete with the help of volunteers from PPR Seri Cempaka community,, Paramount Property Development Sdn Bhd and Nippon Paint Malaysia.

The court will be extended by 20ft to accommodate both futsal and netball courts.

Residents of PPR Seri Cempaka can look forward to a more vibrant and colourful multipurpose court that is safe to use for their healthy pursuits. 

The Sayangi Rumahku campaign is 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 Ministry. The DKN is aimed at improving the lives of the B40 group.

Stay tuned for more updates when work commences at PPR Seri Cempaka!
