All affiliates planning to organise their tournaments were reminded to apply for approval on the prescribed form at least six weeks before the event.
Said Hon Secretary Wong Liang Ming: “We are pleased to note that there has been an increase in the number of clubs organising tournaments for various reasons. This is good for the sport and we encourage it.
“However, we would like to ask organisers of future tournaments who require technical and other support from the STF to co-operate with us by applying for approval on the prescribed form at least six weeks before the event. The form is available at the Secretariat. It can also be downloaded from STF website.
“While the STF would like to help the organisers, it is often placed in a very difficult, if not impossible, position to do so because of last minute requests.
“We would like to state that the STF will not support or entertain any application which fails to meet the six-week requirement.”Affiliates, which require advice on the organising of the tournament, may consult the Tournament Head, Mr. Lee Thiam Poh at 9106 4421.
