With a cost of more than NT$460 million, Zhubei Civil Sports Center, the first of its kind in Hsinchu County, finally opens to the public on September 17. The 12-day trial run, which began from September 5, attracted nearly 40,000 visitors to try out the newly-unveiled sports facilities. In the future, the sports center will serve the purpose of nurturing top athletes by issuing two student-athletes in each junior and senior high school with free passes, which allows free admission to the gym and swimming pool on weekday afternoons. It is hoped that the opening of the sports center can not only provide the citizens with a better environment for daily workout, but also train more professional athletes.
Magistrate Yang Wen-ke shows that Hsinchu County is a health-conscious and dynamic city. To encourage its people to do more exercise, the government has established its first civil sports center, which is operated by Far East Steel Safe Manufacturing Co., Ltd. The operator consents to allocate 1% of its total annual revenues to upgrade sports facilities in schools. In addition, the county government has also launched multiple policies and started various sports constructions to further urge its people to become athletic and healthy.
