Pool bookings: SportSG to consider moving swimmers to next slot if weather, capacity limits allow

In response to a TODAY reader, government agency Sport Singapore says it will consider exercising more flexibility when it comes to bookings for ActiveSG swimming pools.

S Parameswaran, Deputy Director, Public Relations, Sport Singapore

We refer to Mr David Kwok Ng Kan’s letter, “Be flexible and allow changes to ActiveSG swimming pool bookings” (Sept 24).

We thank him for his feedback.

As part of our safe management measures, Sport Singapore rolled out mandatory online bookings for swimming pools and gyms when we reopened our ActiveSG facilities on June 19.

Extra measures include segregating timings for different communities to exercise and swim at our pools safely.

All these measures were designed to safeguard our communities from mixing, as well as prevent overcrowding in the swimming complexes and users from queuing outside our swimming pools.

Given that swimming is an activity that may be affected by weather conditions, we will consider Mr Kwok’s suggestion on allowing affected swimmers to enter at the next time slot, if the weather permits and it is within our capacity limits.  

We will continue monitoring the situation on the ground and making informed changes where necessary to enhance opportunities for all to swim.
