    Mosquito Breeding Preventive Measures

    The Club is situated opposite a NEA-determined dengue cluster.

    To prevent mosquito breeding, the Club conducts weekly fogging and frequently checks and removes stagnant water in and around its premises, as the Aedes mosquito, which carries the virus that causes dengue fever, prefers to breed in clean, stagnant water.

    We ask members to help us by WhatsApp-ing our Housekeeping team at 9748 3599 with photos of possible breeding habitats, indicating where they are.

    Installation of Platform to Raise Floor of Recreation Pool

    1) In 2009, the then Management Committee decided to deepen the end of the Recreation Pool that is nearer to the Learn-to-Swim Pool from 1.2m to 1.6m.

    2) In recent years, there have been a few cases of near drowning and members have been asking for this end of the pool to be restored to its original depth of 1.2m so that swimmers are able to rest their feet on the pool floor.

    3) In response to the many requests, the Club will be installing a stainless steel platform to raise the pool floor.

    4) Members can now use a unit of the platform that has been installed at the corner of the pool closer to the Gym. The rest of the platform is now being fabricated and when that is done, we will proceed to install the entire platform against the wall along the breath of the pool floor.
