SINGAPORE — Non-residents here will have to pay more for public sports facilities managed by Sport Singapore starting from next month, under a new fee structure.

Announcing this in a media release today (April 1), Sport Singapore — previously known as the Singapore Sports Council — and ActiveSG, the national movement to promote sports launched in April, said Singaporeans and Permanent Residents (PRs) will continue to pay prevailing rates, while non-residents will be charged higher standard rates from May 1.

The standard rates will apply to facilities that are booked for use on and after May .

This follows an announcement in August last year on plans to introduce the new fee structure. First to come under the new structure was the Singapore Sports Hub, which implemented the higher fees for foreigners on Aug 18, following more than a month of free play in celebration of National Day.

All existing concessions for senior citizens, children, and family members accompanying senior citizens to the sports facilities will continue to apply to Singapore Citizens and PRs only, while non-residents will not enjoy any concession.

Said Mr Lai Chin Kwang, Chief of ActiveSG, Sport Singapore: “The new and higher standard rates will only apply to non-residents, so that there is a differentiation in what non-residents pay and what Singaporeans and Permanent Residents pay to use the facilities.”

Advance online booking for facilities under the new Standard rates will start from April 17 at www.myactivesg.com.
