The inaugural National Deaf Games was launched in early March 2015. The entire event drew a record of 143 participants for the three sports: Badminton, Bowling and Futsal. The guest-of-honour, Deputy Prime Minister and Minister for Finance, Mr Tharman Shanmugaratnam, graced the Opening Ceremony of 1st National Deaf Games at Jurong East Sports Cultural Centre.

The second edition of National Deaf Games was a success with a record of 187 participants mostly from the local Deaf and Hard of Hearing community. Two of them, Adelia Naomi Yokoyama and Kimberly Quek Hwee, were selected through our talent identification system and represented Singapore at the Deaflympics 2017 where they won the first Gold and Bronze medal at the Women Master event Bowling. It was the first Deaflympics medal for Singapore.

DSA continues to organise the multi-sport events annually. The event is a platform to give opportunities for the Deaf and Hard of Hearing community to compete amongst themselves through fun and games in their favourite sports and to encourage higher participation in physical activities which promotes healthy lifestyle.

We appeal for your donation and your generous support to this cause so that we shall continue the promotion of National Deaf Games yearly.

About the Charity

Deaf Sports Association (Singapore), or DSA, is a national sports organisation for the deaf community in Singapore. Using sports as a component of character building, social integration, and a healthy lifestyle, we aim to help them achieve their full potential.

Through fun and games, we organise multi-sporting events where the deaf and hard-of-hearing compete with one another. As part of the elite training programme, we scout for talents and support their preparation for overseas games.

In the absence of full funding from the government and its agencies like Sport Singapore (SportSG), or even from the Singapore Disability Sports Council (SDSC), your kind donation will be greatly appreciated.
