The extension is part of the National Day celebrations. The National Day Parade will also be screened at the Sports Hub.

As part of Singapore’s National Day celebrations, the Singapore Sports Hub has decided to extend the free use of its facilities till Aug 17. So if you missed out on getting tickets to this year’s National Day Parade (NDP), you can catch all the action on a giant screen at the Sports Hub, as it celebrates the nation’s 49th birthday.

The screening of the NDP at the Sports Hub follows the successful free screenings of the World Cup matches. The free trials, originally slated for the whole month of July, have proved popular with the public, with usage rates hitting about 90 per cent to date. Badminton and swimming have attracted the most number of bookings.

Once the free trial period is over, the Sports Hub will charge a fee for the use of these facilities. The rates, to be announced later, will be aligned with that of other sports facilities in Singapore.

“The free trials will give us feedback on what the public want,” said the Singapore Sports Hub’s Chief Operating Officer Oon Jin Teik. “We will adjust the rates and timings accordingly to make it easily accessible and affordable for all.”

Sports Hub free usage while time allows

From late June 2014, the Singapore Sports Hub will unveil the Experience Sports Programme to the community – starting with an introductory period from 28 June till 30 July before the official programme kicks-off in August 2014.

This is an all inclusive in-house community programme that will allow everyone to participate for FREE.

From learning to play a new sport, to having a go at fun try-outs or just letting the kids jump around in the Experience Sports Village, there’ll be nothing short of fun activities for everyone at the Singapore Sports Hub every weekend and occasionally on weekdays.​

With the guidance of certified coaches, the Sports Hub will provide fun learning experiences for all. Their “Learn To Play” programme is designed for all ages, all sporting abilities and for all proficiency levels.

Whether you’ve ever held a badminton racquet, just played for fun at the playground or can hit a mean cross-court smash, Experience Badminton, is for you!

If you had always wondered what sand feels like in your face, Experience Beach Volleyball can be the right tonic for your Saturday.

Every Saturdays and Sundays, all year round, the Singapore Sports Hub will have a new sport for you to Experience.
