Successfully organised by the Federation of Tunku Abdul Rahman College Alumni Associations, Malaysia ('FTARC AA') for the 7th year, the annual event inculcated a spirit of camaraderie and fellowship amongst the TAR UC community.

The Sports Challenge which was held at various venues within the Kuala Lumpur Main Campus pitted TAR UC's students, staff and alumni against each other in a strong demonstration of sportsmanship throughout event. There were a total of 11 different games for participants to take part in which were table tennis, water polo, volleyball, badminton, futsal, 3-on-3 basketball, netball, carrom, darts, mahjong and Chinese chess.

“This is the 7th year that the Sports Challenge is organised and this event never fails to unite TARCians with old friends and serves as a platform for our alumni to socialise with students and staff to reminisce the good old days when they were students in this institution,” said Datuk Dr Tan Chik Heok, President of TAR UC. “This healthy and meaningful sports event has indeed fostered a stronger and closer bond between the University College and our alumni.”
