I hope you enjoyed reading our newly revamped Play Times. The emails that we received from you, our faithful readers, have been very encouraging and we would like to thank you for your kind words and support. The social media team at the Singapore Sports Council (SSC) is consistently coming up with new and exciting ways to engage you and help you play or be involved in sport in one way or another, just so that you can make sports a way of life. So stay tuned.
With many sporting events taking place, I made an effort to increase my sporting lifestyle. I seemed to have packed on a couple of pounds despite constantly going for jogs so I decided to get myself a new bike and start cycling. Instead of my usual road routes (Kranji and Choa Chu Kang), I decided to take my mountain bike for a spin and try out the much talked about park connectors routes.
I must say that I was pleasantly surprised as the routes were very well thought of. It was an interesting and exhilarating park experience for me. The scenery along the route was a real treat. It was a sensory delight and I would like everyone who has not tried out these park connectors to do so. I am looking forward to this weekend as I will be heading to the northern part of Singapore to check out the Mandai park connector. This month also has a number of cycling activities. Go to singaporesports.sg
and check out our calendar
and participate in the various cycling activities.
Over the past few weekends, I also decided to make my way around our island and check out the various Let's Play Non-Stop roadshows. It was very heartening to see lots of people participating in games at our roadshows. People of all ages seemed to be having fun while learning a new sport at the carnival-like venues. Our Team Singapore athletes were also there to promote their sport, share their experiences and give tips to the people.
Don't feel like embarking on a sporting journey and no plans for the weekend? Then head on down and check out the Let's Play Non-Stop road shows. For the month of June, the Let's Play Non-Stop roadshows will be at the Bukit Panjang Plaza (Open Plaza) from 4 - 5 June and at the Bukit Gombak Sports Hall on 11 June. Admission is free and activities start from 12pm till 8pm. More information can be found on our Let's Play Facebook page
Have a sporting June and Let's Play!
