If you haven’t already visited the newly opened Singapore Sports Hub, here’s yet another reason to go – they are letting you try out their facilities for free until 17 Aug. Some things you might want to do include renting a canoe or kayak and paddling along the Kallang River; booking a private lane and swimming in one of their ginormous pools; skateboarding at their outdoor skate park; playing basketball, badminton, netball, or volleyball in one of their indoor air-conditioned courts; or climbing up a 16m high wall inside an air-conditioned mall.
Do note that each activity may have designated hours, so check their website and plan accordingly. Also, some activities may require prior booking. The indoor climbing wall, operated by Climb Central, will require you to sign a waiver which may be viewed and downloaded from their web site. Their free climbing trials are available only on weekends during 3 specific time slots.
The wall is inside the Kallang Wave Mall, which is also where FairPrice Xtra is located. Only about half of the shops in the mall have opened at this time.
In addition to trying out the many sports facilities there, don’t forget to check out the national stadium, which is open for viewing (click here for a map, dates, and visiting hours). The 55,000 capacity stadium is absolutely breathtaking, and it will be the 2016 venue for the National Day Parade.
Here are photos of some of their outdoor facilities, which include beach volleyball courts and a children’s playground.
