In the spirit of supporting the development of sports in Malaysia, TAR UC had signed a Memorandum of Understanding ('MoU') with Kuala Lumpur Volleyball Association ('KLVA') on 17 November 2017 at TAR UC’s Kuala Lumpur Main Campus.
This MoU will allow KLVA to use TAR UC's extensive sports facilities, which include a sheltered volleyball court which is suitable for elite training sessions, practice and professional competitions.
The MoU signing was attended by Datuk Dr Tan Chik Heok, President of TAR UC, Datuk Dr Tony Looi Chee Hong, President of KLVA, TAR UC senior management, KLVA officials, and members of the press.
"We have signed many MoUs in the past for the benefit of our students academically, but I am pleased to announce that for the first time, we have signed a MoU with a sporting committee," said Datuk Dr Tan during his opening speech. "We are thrilled to be contributing to the growth of sports in Malaysia, and together with KLVA we shall aspire to raise the standards of volleyball in TAR UC and across the nation."
"We believe students can contribute in more than just academic results, and we at KLVA thank TAR UC from the bottom of our heart for this collaboration," said Datuk Dr Tony Looi. "TAR UC has proven to be the ideal venue for volleyball events, evident through the very successful KL Volleyball Carnival 2015 where we made an entry into the Malaysia Book of Records for having the highest number of participants in a volleyball tournament."
"We are looking forward to seeing more state-level competitions being held here, and who knows we may be able to see a TAR UC student become a state volleyball player or even a national-level player," Datuk Dr Tony Looi added in his speech.
The main focus of this event was when Datuk Dr Tan and Datuk Dr Tony Looi signed the MoU witnessed by Dr Chook Ka Joo, Vice President of TAR UC and Mr Ricky Chow Kit Leong, Honorary Secretary of KLVA followed by an exchange of the documents to complete the MoU signing ceremony. After that, Datuk Dr Tan was presented with souvenirs from KLVA by Datuk Dr Tony Looi in the form of a volleyball and a jersey before the official group photograph session.
