Sports & Fitness Expo is back!

The Sports & Fitness Expo (SFE) returns for its 5th year from 4th to 7th December 2008 at the Singapore Expo, Hall 5. Expecting more than 55,000 visitors this year, the myriad of sports and wellness experiences promises not to disappoint.

“SFE 2008 is a unique event bringing together all sports interest groups under one roof, sharing the latest sports information and technology,” said Mr Kelven Tan, Chief of Sports Marketing Group, Singapore Sports Council. 

Indeed, with exciting performances such as the funky Hip Hop Street Stunts, high-risk BikeTrial demonstrations, and even interactive games like the Soccer Penalty Challenge and Basketball Free Throw, this is surely an event not to be missed. From the simulated golf courses for avid golfers, to scuba-diving demonstrations for passionate divers, the SFE 2008 definitely has something in store for everyone.

Taking to court star players - Eric Sandrin, who is back from a six week lay-off due to a spinal injury and Darren Ng who was the top scorer of the match at 25 points, this dashed the hopes of the PB who could have walked away with S$10,000 if they beat the Singapore Slingers.

Manchester United Soccer Schools (MUSS) will be conducting a youth soccer coaching course in Singapore from 9-13th December 2008.

Boys and girls between the ages of 8 and 16 will be offered the opportunity to make the most of their ability through a specially tailored course. The emphasis will be as much on personal development of the children as it is on soccer skills. Creating confidence both on and off the pitch is a key element of all MUSS programs, but most of all it is about having fun through football.

Manchester United Soccer Schools will use the latest training equipment and coaching techniques at Tampines SAFRA to help young players improve their skills in a fun and friendly environment.
