Post CNY Cycling in Pulau Ubin on Sat, 20 Feb 2015

It’s been some time since we last cycled on Pulau Ubin. Let’s do it again and this time together we celebrate CNY 2016.

I would also like to share a video clip. It was a short one and made specially for “Life Matters” Expo to showcase one of SHC’s activities, at Suntec City where SHC participated. In this video clip, one may see the many familiar faces, some have gone, some are still around and some have MIA.

Pickleball – Let’s Play This Sport Together

My name is Eric Leow, a new member to this Club.

I am playing pickleball for the last year and there are players who are playing this for the last 20 odd years. Many players across all skill-level have claimed that it would be “very hard” to stop playing the game, with some saying that they are “very determined” to continue playing.

Briefly pickleball is a hybrid of Badminton, Tennis and Table-tennis, a three in one game, played with a wooden, graphic, or composite paddles and a perforated plastic ball. It can be played on a normal Badminton court or on any hard surface. The net is lowered to 3 ft high.

If you find badminton, tennis or squash too strenuous for you, then pickleball is an excellent introductory game. It is very easy to learn and is quickly played and enjoyed by everyone, men, women, children and benefiting people at all ages. It is a low cost game. Badminton courts are easily available in our CC or sports hall. All you need is to buy the paddles and balls.

From my personal experience, I found that most pickleball clubs do not want to take in new players who have not play this game before.

I know the organizer of a pickleball club, and I think I should be able to convince him to recruit new players. Subject to SHCians expression of interest, I am considering to introduce pickleball and EO this sports here.

If this is on, it would be on every Tues and Thurs 9.30am to 12.30pm. However, if the CC required the use the hall for activities then that session will be cancelled.

You just need to get your own paddle, and contribute towards the purchase of balls. Not to worry about the amount, it is very affordable. It is about $3-$4 per month.

The place is in the vicinity of Hougang.

Chinese Ad

English Ad

This is not an advertisement for another organisation but merely information for those who are keen to continue learning Infocomm Technology (IT) subjects. Each year, IDA will hold SID in the 3rd or 4th quarter of the year. People who are aged 50 and above are their targets. During this period, IT subjects relevant to today’s living are conducted at various centres like Polythenic and ITE. Subjects on various topics are offered at very cheap rates of $10 per session of 3 hrs (hope I remember correctly). Besides these offered subjects, participants can also participate in seminar and talks to enhance learning and get to know IT matters better.
