Christmas came early to the Club on Sunday, December 2. Not only did we see a skating Santa but we were thrilled to see snowmen, toy soldiers and many others show off their skating skills. A huge thank-you to Ryan our head ice-skating coach and his team for co-coordinating the event, and to all the children who took time to practice and produce a fantastic spectacle for us all to enjoy.

One of the year’s most anticipated events at the Club, the annual swimming gala was held on October 7, and was well received with 125 kids aged 4 to 14 participating in different events.
Thank you to all the kids who competed and a big thank you to the team and Harry Wright International for arranging the event. Congratulations to all the participants.
The gala also marked the change of seasons, and with winter approaching, the 3/F pool was re-opened with the bubble on October 22. The tropical pool will remain open until October 31.
A new group activity, fitball training was introduced this month with our trainer Sandy. The 45-minute fitball training group class is held every Thursday at 9.45am, right after the spin class. Join in and learn new exercises that will help you tone your abs, obliques, glutes and work on your core stability.
Lastly, I would like to inform you that from November 5 to 18, the 3/F male and female heat and water facilities will be closed for maintenance.
Director of Sports & Recreation
I would like to take this blog entry to inform you of some important announcements for further renovations and maintenance around the Sports and Recreation facilities.
The 3/F Swimming Pool will be closed from October 8 to 24. As well as the installation of the bubble, we will carry out essential maintenance. During this period the G/F Tropical Pool will be open from 7am to 10.30pm daily.
North Shore Tennis Court will be renovated from mid November to mid January and one court will be kept open for Members.
Prior to the closure of the 3/F Swimming Pool as mentioned above I would like to remind you that our Annual Swim Gala will take place on Sunday, October 7 from 1pm to 4pm.
The Bowling Alley renovation is scheduled to be ready towards the latter part of October and we are also looking forward to introducing a new Table Tennis room on the 7/F in the coming weeks.
