The initiative is geared towards a sporting ecosystem that provides innovative programming through a network of sporting spaces.

This will see a significant facelift for local sports and lifestyle facilities, and offer a wider range of activities for people of all ages. 

A gym by the pool (below) and an aqua rock wall will be available for the adventurous, as well as Masala Bhangra® and Piloxing®, will be offered for the first time in Singapore.

Mr Lai Chin Kwang, Chief of Sports Club Group, Sport Singapore, commented: “We want Singaporeans to have this opportunity to enjoy bonding and doing sports together. It is our mission to create access and opportunities for everyone.” 

Mr. Lai hopes to see a 15% to 20% increase in involvement in local sports and recreation centres in the coming year.

“It’s not about what we have for Singaporeans, it’s what they need – and we’ll deliver,” he shared.

In addition to revamped facilities, Singaporeans will also enjoy new fitness programmes and enhanced membership experience, all of which fall under ActiveSG’s key thrusts to enable Singaporeans to “Live Better Through Sport”.

The new programmes and facilities will have something in store for everyone.

“We want to ensure that our initiatives will reach all segments of Singaporeans – the young kids, youths, working adults... last but not least, our elderly who may have disabilities, but they will still have opportunities to live better,” Mr. Lai said.

Sport Singapore (formerly Singapore Sports Council) launched ActiveSG on 26 April at the Jurong West Sports Centre. This nationwide movement aims to create a sporting ecosystem that provides innovative and experiential sport related programmes at sports centres island wide.
