From July, national servicemen (NSmen) will be able to get discounts when booking sports facilities and signing up for courses organised by the People's Association (PA), as well as at selected lifestyle activity venues and shops.

The discounts have been organised by the PA to thank them for their contributions to the nation, it said in a statement yesterday.

Community centres (CCs) will be offering 10 per cent off sign-up and booking fees for their courses and facilities between July 1 and 31.

Water venture outlets partnering with PA will offer a 10 per cent discount for various land-and water-based lifestyle activities from July 1 to Dec 31. Some CCs will also offer extended discounts running until Dec 31, with the full list available on the PA website.

Eight gyms located in the Ulu Pandan, Serangoon, Potong Pasir, Henderson, Queenstown, Tampines West, Ayer Rajah and Dover CCs will be offering discounts for entry and membership.

There will also be discounts available at 300 participating merchants around the island, including hawker centres, entertainment outlets and tuition centres.

NSmen can simply present their 11B identification card or wear their uniforms to enjoy the discounts, which are available for both full-time and operationally ready national servicemen.
