Tennis Skills Challenge
Put your fitness skills to the test and win an exclusive Tennis Nila Plush Toy at the Tennis Skills Challenge.
Set your heart pumping with simple exercises such as shuttle run, tyre hop, bucket aim and the Stump Obstacle Course.
“Even though the exercises were simple, it felt like a workout all together, and it’s good to sweat it out after a long day in the office,” said Julia Tan, a participant who took part in the Tennis Skills Challenge.
If these exercises aren’t thrilling enough to get your heart racing, head down to try the all-new HADO Argumented Reality gaming experience that will guarantee to give you all the cardio and fun you need.

HADO AR & E-Gaming Experience
HADO is taking e-gaming to a whole new level by combining augmented reality (AR) with exercising to bring together a unique experience of sports and gaming also known as exergaming.
“We are moving towards an e-sports that is non-sedentary, unlike most of the e-sports in the market where you’re seated taking part in a competition,” Jasper Tan, founder of Nex Realm Productions said.
Just put on the AR goggles and a motion sensor on the wrist, you’re ready to take on your opponents in a 2-on-2 AR dodgeball during the STF.
Tan added: “HADO is made for everyone, we had children as young as six to an elderly who’s 87 coming forward to give HADO a go”.
Apart from HADO, you’d also be able to get your hands on the latest tennis console game, Tennis World Tour as well as the classic Wii Tennis.
