Leo Kwok Farewell  (By Tim Harrison)

This season we bid farewell to a longstanding member of the squash section, a near permanent fixture, both on and off the courts, since joining the club in 2010 Specifically, Leo has flown HKFC’s Friday night flag, as convener of HKFC’s division 7 and 12 teams for the last 4 years. Befitting of its convener, the team rounded-out Leo’s time at the club in style this season, by completing the glorious double.

The first leg of this commanding victory began with a domination of the regular league, which saw the team win the title with multiple games to spare. Ending the season 18 points clear of its nearest competitor, the team claimed the top 4 individual player rankings in the division. Leading by example, Leo completed the season with a 12-2 win-loss ratio, demonstrating that playing squash 10 times a week really can improve your game! Equally emphatic, the team cruised to victory in the playoffs, dropping only 1 match in the process.

Leo’s participation in the section will be greatly missed going forward. On the court Leo was competitive, yet gracious in defeat and happy for a hit with players of any standards! Off the court, Leo was fantastic fun and undoubtedly the life and soul of the party. Leo was also an active member of our junior coaching program, teaching the sport’s next generation in his unorthodox ways.

 Leo is also a keen golfer and represented the squash section in the last two instalments of the annual golf game with the tennis section where he won both his matches. This is a remarkable feat as in the first game he transpired to turn up to the golf club without any equipment as he had wrongly thought that they had already been put onto the team bus.

To the envy of us all, going forward Leo and his family will be relocating to Bali, where Leo will be looking to insert himself into the Balinese squash community. We wish Leo and his family all the best with their new adventure and look forward to welcoming them back to the club on their returns to Hong Kong.
