Tembusu Table Tennis

The club is formed for Tembusians who enjoy playing table tennis. Through a shared love of the sport, this group hopes to foster a spirit of collaboration and community. Inter-College Games held in semester 2 allows members to pit their skills against opponents from our neighbouring RCs. While there are such competitions and trainings, we accommodate enthusiasts of all skill levels to learn, play and improve every week. After all, we never forget that it is enjoyment of the game that brought everyone together in the first place!

The Tembusu (Fagraea fragrans) is a large evergreen tree in the family Gentianaceae. It is native to Southeast Asia. Its trunk is dark brown, with deeply fissured bark, looking somewhat like a bittergourd. It grows in an irregular shape from 10 to 25m high. Its leaves are light green and oval in shape. Its yellowish flowers have a distinct fragrance and the fruits of the tree are bitter tasting red berries, which are eaten by birds and fruit bats.
