Hong Kong Information
Clubs


The best way to get your social life organized is to join a club or an association. Membership to a club may be included in your contract, and if it is not, ask your employer about corporate club debentures.  There are numerous clubs to choose from, but if on the off chance you don't find one that suites, it is easy enough to create your own by advertising in various publications for like minded people to meet and join.  The American Country Club in Tai Tam is pictured to the left.

You may also rent a club membership. This may be a more economical way to enjoy the club membership in the short term. Call Superior Club Services on 2832 4909.
