Singapore Sports Hub unveils slew of activities in build-up to SEA Games

SINGAPORE - The Singapore Sports Hub has unveiled a slew of activities to help capture the nation's imagination ahead of the SEA Games and foster a relationship between Team Singapore athletes and the public.

In the build-up to the multi-sports extravaganza in June, the Kallang showpiece will host free sporting events such as the South-east Asian Basketball Championship, venue tours and meet-and-greets with Singapore's top sportsmen and women.

Through fun challenges known as the Experience Sports Super 10s, the public can also have a go at the 10 sports to be hosted at the Hub during the June 5-16 Games.

Sports Hub chief operating officer Oon Jin Teik said: "It is very important for us to have Singaporeans and members of the public be familiar with the campus and venues. Therefore, it is crucial for us to host these activities in the build-up to the Games to help Singaporeans develop relationships with this national icon."
