Sports club should ban smoking

THE South China Athletic Association (SCAA) is supposed to provide healthy sports activities for its members. Thus, it seems paradoxical that I have to complain about the widespread smoking in the SCAA's bowling centre, swimming pool, canteen, billiard rooms, squash courts and lifts. I have noticed underage members smoking away happily in the video games centre.

On two recent visits staff were also smoking at the bowling centre.

This not only poses a health hazard to non-smokers like myself, but also makes the SCAA unpleasant given the air pollution, eye irritation and giddiness caused.

Surely a total ban on smoking within the SCAA premises would be a welcome move by the management? TERRENCE SHAN Central
