Activity Review | Longgang VS. Sha Tin: The First Friendly Match Between Two Shaw Colleges
As is known to us, among all four colleges of CUHKSZ, only Shaw College exists both in the Sha Tin campus and the Shenzhen campus. This is undoubtedly on account of the common donor—Sir Run Run Shaw’s credit. Sir Run Run Shaw’s donation contributed to the establishment of Shaw Collge in Hong Kong in 1986. Three decades later, in 2016, Shaw Foundation (Hong Kong) Co., Ltd. established by Mr. Shaw once again donated to the Shenzhen campus, and its donation resulted in the birth of Shaw College in CUHKSZ.
The two Shaw Colleges are closely-related and have organized different interchange activity in the past two years. On October 27th in 2018, we were very honored to invite the basketball teams from both Shaw Colleges in Sha Tin and Shenzhen to have a friendly basketball competition.
The friendly match started from the women’s basketball match. The members of Shaw College (Shenzhen) women’s basketball team (“Shenzhen team”) were selected from the Freshman Cup. Although the Shenzhen team lost to the Sha Tian team, girls from the Shenzhen campus had tried their best and left no regrets.

The heated men’s basketball match began right after the end of the women’s basketball match. From the first whistle to the end, the two teams presented a fierce match for the audience. The two teams were well-matched with tight scores. The coaches of both teams frequently guided their players and adjusted the tactics. Although Shaw College (Shenzhen) team lost to Shaw College (Sha Tin) team by a neck, the team members gained interaction and friendship, which were the most valuable treasure.

Hope that staff and team members from Shaw College (Sha Tin) could joyfully return to Hong Kong with our friendship and we look forward to more positive interchange activity in the future. Long live our friendship!
