Hong Kong Beach 5’s has been an annual event since 2011. Every year it gets bigger and better. Held in Repulse Bay, teams of 5 compete at various sports including rugby, football, dodge ball, netball and volleyball. It’s not as famous as the Hong Kong rugby sevens or the Dragon Boat racing that takes place in June, but it’s growing in popularity. Not only that, it’s the largest beach sport’s festival in Asia.
Hong Kong Greeters gets Sporty at the Hong Kong Beach 5’s
As a locally based company, we love being involved in local events. This year we entered our very own netball team into the competition. Here they are – the gorgeous Hong Kong Beach 5 Netball team representing Hong Kong Greeters. Their kit is rather dashing don’t you think?
Well done to our team who thrashed in out in 29 degree heat and the toughest netball terrain! #HKBeach5s
They were also featured twice in the Southside Magazine… Go Girls!

Other Hong Kong Sporting Events
The Hong Kong Rugby Sevens
Established in 1976, this growing event has evolved into possibly the biggest party in town. The games are fast and furious, the crowd is international, ebullient and often in fancy dress. Keep an eye on the Hong Kong Sevens website to find out upcoming dates and make sure you don’t miss this fabulous Hong Kong sporting event.
Dragon Boat Racing
There is both a Dragon Boat Festival and a Dragon Boat Carnival. The Festival is a one day event and there will be various races held around the city. Stanley, Sai Kung, Sha Tin and Tai O all have their own races. The Dragon Boat carnival is a larger event held in Victoria Harbour. It lasts three whole days. Three days of colourful competition set to the beat of a drum.
