TAMAN Ibukota folk in Setapak can enjoy their badminton sessions again as the outdoor courts at Taman Tasik Medan Idaman have been upgraded, thanks to Kuala Lumpur City Hall (DBKL).

According to residents, the two badminton courts at the recreational park were previously in poor condition with cracked surfaces posing a safety risk.

Datuk Lee Jii Fung, who is on SJK(C) Lee Rubber board of directors, said several of the school’s pupils had slipped and fell when using the courts next to the school.

“We are happy that the courts have been upgraded,” he said while checking out the courts with board chairman Ong Thiam Lai and other school board members.

In response to a complaint by a person identified as Raman that motorists who parked on the court had damaged its surface, Lee said the court should be fenced up.

Wangsa Maju MP Datin Paduka Tan Yee Kew’s special assistant Andre Lai said he highlighted the matter to DBKL at the end of June and work began in the middle of July.

“The courts will also be ringed with anti-climb fences and feature LED floodlights.

“We are happy that DBKL has looked into the matter,” he said. — By JAROD LIM
