Nottingham Games 2011

A message from Tim Cheung, our Director of Sports and Leisure.

To describe what we have achieved in the Nottingham Games 2011 as a success would be an understatement of great magnitude. Being able to see the whole Society, players and supporters, united as one on the playing fields, is such a memorable thing.

I would like to take this opportunity to express my sincere thanks to all who helped us out, especially the team managers Lewina Liu and Jacqueline Kwan, for all their support and help in the preparation for and during the event.

Nottingham Games 2011

I am especially delighted to see the success of our badminton team, considering the fact that this is the first time we have put up our own badminton team in many years. Coming 2nd, just behind Nottingham's team, is nothing short of brilliant. We are all proud of you guys. Thank you for all the effort you have put in the team. Special mentioning to Tim Chung, who was responsible in putting together such a great team. Thank you.

Our basketball team has always been one of the strongest in this tournament, and in the Nottingham Games 2011, this was proven true again. Coming 1st at the group stage, then unfortunately got beaten by Manchester; but the team showed their exceptional quality and perseverance in the 3rd playoffs, where they managed to close the gap and eventually overtake the team from Warwick. Again, everyone of us are so proud of the team. Special thanks to Jonathan Lam, Jonathan Yeung and David Zhang for their passion, their dedication to the basketball team, and all the advice and help that they offered in preparing for this event. Thank you all!

The Chinese Society Football Team has definitely showed their prowess in the Nottingham Games. Entering the tournament as the underdogs, then coming 1st at the group stage, beating IC and the home team Nottingham to get into the final, is, I reckon, sheer brilliance. Despite the defeat by Manchester in the finals, I am sure no one would disagree with me if I said that the team had played with all their hearts and souls, and they had given all their best on the field. They have made us proud. I would like to take this opportunity to say "thank you" to our captain Terence Li, who has been in the team for 3 years, and this being his last Nottingham Games. Thank you for all you have done for the team, it has been a pleasure for all of us to be playing with you all this time. And a big congratulations to our top scorer Adrian Leung, who managed to hit the back of the net on 5 different occasions throughout the day, all being vital goals to our progress in the tournament. Keep up the good work, Adrian!

Last but not least, I would like to thank all the supporters again for their cheering. Your support has certainly been a great encouragement to our teams. Without you guys, we would have never been able to achieve these amazing results.

Coming top 3 in all the competitions we have entered this year marks a wonderful end to this event. I hope we will continue this legacy in all coming years. Thank you all!

About the one. Campaign

As well as promoting the characteristics of our culture, the Chinese Society is also determined to expand our sphere of influence in making a difference to our respective communities. Each year the one. Team initiates a series of charity events in both London and Hong Kong, where all funds raised are dedicated towards our selected charitable or social organization in the beginning of the campaign. This effort is further reinforced by our cooperation with the relevant societies of other London universities, as demonstrated by the successful “one. Talent Show” organized between the London Universities in March 2011. The one. Campaign does not only represent our contributions towards the community but is furthermore a collective effort to make a difference on behalf of the student body in LSE. We pledge for your support.
