Global Business Power Corp. (GBPC) turned over a check worth P2 million to the city government here for the rehabilitation and improvement of an existing lawn tennis court at the La Paz plaza.

After the regular flag raising ceremony held Monday morning, city mayor Jed Patrick Mabilog received the check from Maira Montelijao of GBPC as a symbol of solid partnership between the city government and the power firm in improving the public tennis court patronized by sports enthusiasts.

La Paz Plaza and its more than three hectare area is dedicated to sports development.

Aside from the lawn tennis the plaza also serves as venue for football competitions, boxing, basketball, softball and baseball, mixed martial arts, arnis and badminton.

A memorandum of agreement (MOA) was signed last December 15, 2015 between Mabilog, GBPC executive vice president Jaime Azurin and Panay vice president Petronilo Madrid for the assistance to rehab the only public tennis court in the city.

Mabilog was very thankful to the power firm in recognizing the potentials of the city’s local sports development program.
