The Straits Games (TSG)
TSG is an annual sports event which began in 2002 between the two countries along the straits of Malacca; Malaysia and Singapore. The main objective of the games is to Foster Friendship and Promote Healthy Lifestyle living. Over the years, with the rapid growing interests, TSG has gradually attracted more participants from Singapore, Malaysia and growing participation from China, Hong Kong, Japan, Taiwan, Thailand, the Philippines, Indonesia, Vietnam.
Common traditional games such as Badminton, Bowling and Volleyball are the core sports of TSG while other games such as Tennis, Swimming, Track Field, Ping Pong, Basketball are all alternative Sports that have been held before, depending on the facilities available in the hosting country.
