Tanjong Hall emerged tops in the first and only Inter-North Hill Games held last month.

The competition, which took place from 6 to 8 Mar, saw residents from Binjal, Tanjong and Banyan Halls compete in three sports — basketball, badminton and soccer.

Tanjong Hall triumphed in all three sports and clinched the overall champion trophy.

Binjal Hall took second place while Banyan Hall placed third.

In an email to the Nanyang Chronicle, Tanjong Hall president Ahmad Farid said the three sports were chosen due to their popularity among residents at North Hill.

Tanjong Hall’s sports secretary Zachary Teo said the Games were organised in place of this year’s Inter-Hall Games (IHG), which the North Hill halls did not participate in.

“The North Hill halls were nowhere near full occupation, so it was tough for the three halls to form and send teams to participate in this year’s IHG,” said Teo, a first-year student from the Nanyang Business School.

But that will change next year, he added, when the halls are fully occupied.
