New Bulletin Land Bank of Taiwan’s Badminton Team Won First and Third Places in Men’s and Women’s National Championships Since Last Win Four Years Ago

Since its inception in 1946, the Land Bank of Taiwan has been supporting the government in its promulgation of housing and land policies, handling various mortgage projects, providing capital financing, promoting private investment and public construction development. As the country’s economy grows and develops, the Bank has ranked at the top of the nation in the market of construction financing & crediting, house mortgages and real estate trust and become a leading bank in real estate finance, generating a pre-tax annual income of many dozens of billions for 7 consecutive years.        To support the government’s advocacy for physical education, the Bank set up a badminton team in 1976 which had since achieved fantastic results. The head of the Bank cares about the banking operation and the corporate social responsibilities too. Given continuous support in line with our central ethos, the Bank’s badminton team in the past two years has performed way better than before. Such as representing the country and winning many gold medals in the badminton groups & singles finals in 2017 Universiade; LIN YU HSIEN winning Men’s Singles Championship in 2018 China Masters (Super 100) and New Zealand Opens (Super 300); CHEN HUNG LING & WANG CHI LIN winning Men’s Doubles Championship; WANG CHI LIN & LEE CHIA HSIN wining the Mix Championship. In particular, after 5 hours’ fierce competition, with great coaching and outstanding performance of the players, we won the First and Third Places in Men’s and Women’s National Badminton Championships held in Tainan this month (May), a long-awaited victory since our last win four years ago.         The Bank’s badminton and tennis teams were set up to nurture outstanding young players with great potential from junior/senior high schools and universities to be reserve players. We take care of their everyday needs and livelihood. For many decades, we have built a positive reputation in Taiwan’s badminton sector and have become a key training ground for Taiwan’s national badminton team. In recent years, we have also been active in selecting and sending players for international tournaments so as to absorb experience for overseas competition and improve the techniques. Our next priority target is the 2018 Asian Games and 2020 Tokyo Olympics, hoping to achieve favorable results on behalf of the country, while fulfilling our corporate social responsibilities.        Additionally, to encourage school children and teenagers to engage in positive leisure activities during the school summer holidays and to work in tandem with the government’s policy in boosting Hualian’s tourism this year and to care for the families and disadvantaged groups affected by the earthquake in Hualian, we have organized badminton and tennis summer camps for young people in Taipei and Hualian to raise the participants’ interest in sports by way of recreational approaches.
