Monet Garden

Inspired by the work of the master of Impressionism Claude Monet, Monet Garden showcases the artistic ambience and French mood, as well as portrays the house exterior he lived plus his great works Water Lilies, Japanese Bridges via a 4-metre height LED screen for an exceptional art appreciation experience. Visitors can also participate by re-creating Monet’s masterpieces Water Lilies and Sunset with the artists with disabilities. 

Don’t miss the first-ever showing of giant 4-metre tall installation Hug the K created by Hong Kong-based French artist Nicolas Lesaffre. It implies that everyone now aspires for a safe hug for heart-warming feeling amid the social distancing restrictions. 

In addition, people can play the rarely seen Wiser Ball which is a revivified game that originated from an ancient ball game played by royal families and high-ranking officials as a tool to practice strategic planning and physical strength. Wiser Ball is suitable to be played by everyone disrespect of their ages or genders. Moreover, it doesn’t require a specific sports ground which may make it popular in Hong Kong in particular.

Jockey Club Tennis Rocks Programme – Inter-School Challenge

Tennis playing not only requires the use of muscles in the entire body, but also improves cardiorespiratory endurance, strengthens concentration, and raises self-confidence. Despite the many positive impacts on the growth of children, not many schools in Hong Kong provide tennis training. Organised by Hong Kong Tennis Association, Jockey Club Tennis Rocks Programme – Inter-School Challenge provides an opportunity for primary school students to learn more about the sport through games, thereby inspiring their interest and exploring potentials. Students can also learn about healthy lifestyle, friendship building, politeness, time management, self-discipline, as well as sportsmanship through the games. Participating kids will receive instructions from Hong Kong Team tennis players and professional coaches as well as souvenirs to take home. 

Date: 27th June (Sunday)

Time: 12nn – 8pm

Venue: Central Harbourfront Event Space
