SMDC Supports Filipino’s Passion For Sports
June 21, 2018
Aside from fulfilling the Filipino’s dream of having their own home, SMDC has helped turn another dream into reality in reclaiming the championship title in this year’s Asean Basketball League (ABL).
SMDC has joined the quest of the national team, Alab Pilipinas, in successfully bringing back the championship cup to our country in this year’s ABL—the first and only regional professional basketball league in Asia.
The Philippine team has been known as a force to be reckoned with in the ABL, having bagged the championship title thrice since the League’s inception. In fact, the Philippines won the very first championship match in the ABL back in 2009 against the national team of Indonesia. After four yearsof championship drought, the Philippines was able to shout victory again during the finals of the ABL 2013 and recently, in ABL 2018 where they were hailed as champions once again.
SMDC’s sponsorship of our national team is just part of their continuing commitment in promoting an active and healthy lifestyle through sports and recreational activities to every Filipino.
Recognizing the Filipinos’ innate love for physical activities, many SMDC developments boast world-class features that are perfectly attuned to the growing fitness trend among Filipinos. Some of the most notable developments that feature various sporting and fitness amenities are Bloom Residences in Sucat, Wind Residences in picturesque Tagaytay, and Grass Residences in Quezon City.
Grass Residences is the quintessential home for sporty urbanities. Play hoops and improve your game in one of their indoor basketball courts. Either half or full court, you can build your confidence, court awareness, and leadership all-year round. Find your perfect pace while taking a swim at the development’s 50-meter Lap Pool, adult pools, as well as kiddie pools. Badminton enthusiasts can always practice their smash in one of six badminton courts. Know how to perfectly spike, toss, and block the ball in one of their six volleyball courts. And if you are into resistance training or just want a more toned physique, an in-house CrossFit gym can help you work towards your health and fitness goal.
“Sponsoring Alab Pilipinas is a privilege for us. We recognize our nation’s passion for basketball, which is why we were very excited and honoured when we supported our team in bringing home the championship cup. The environment shapes you, that’s why we put a lot of effort in giving the Filipinos an easy access to these kinds of amenities. We promote a balanced, healthy, and active lifestyle at SMDC, and we believe that engaging yourself in sports is essential and beneficial for your well-being.” Jose Mari Banzon, SMDC EVP said.
