Nilai : Tan Sri Azman Hashim launched the Azman Hashim Courts Complex (AHCC), a multipurpose sports structure in Tunku Kurshiah College (TKC) today that was built at the cost of RM550k with sponsorship from Yayasan Azman Hashim. AHCC is the size of 2 basketball courts, and can be used for a myriad of events and functions.

Besides AHCC, the foundation also funded the construction of a sports arena for TKC costing RM4.16 million. Completed in 2016, it was named the Tunku Arishah Sports Arena (TASA), after Tan Sri Azman Hashim’s spouse.

The launching of AHCC was attended Tan Sri Azman Hashim and his spouse Tunku Arishah Tunku Ma’amor, representatives from Amcorp Group, Ambank, as well as the TKC Old Girls Association (TKCOGA).

In his speech, Tan Sri Azman Hashim expressed his wish to see TKC progress far and be well-known in the education world. He fondly recalls his encounters with Tunku Kurshiah binti Almarhum Tunku Besar Burhanuddin, for which TKC is named after, and remembers her as a wise lady who was open-minded and a keen learner.
