    Update on Competition Pool Reconstruction Project

    1) Further to our notice of 14 June 2018, contractor Innovez Engineering has excavated and replaced all underground water piping systems at the Competition Pool.

    2) The contractor had discovered crack lines at the walls at the two ends of the pool. On further investigation, it was found that currently, there are no rebars supporting the waterproofing layer of the walls and this has caused the concrete layers on top and at the bottom to shift.

    3) To rectify this, the contractor has to perform additional casting work to reinforce the walls and has requested for an extension of two weeks for the work.

    4) Despite this, the project’s progress is still on schedule and the new pool is on target for completion in Q1 2019.

    5) There will be dust and noise from the construction. We seek members’ kind patience and understanding during this period.

    Cease of Operation of Jackpot Lift

    The lift serving only the Jackpot Room will cease its operation from 15 Jun 2018 (Fri) because of low usage.

    Allowing entry to Jackpot Room via its main entrance will improve the process of registration of entry and verification of members’ status of exclusion from jackpot machine rooms*.

    Members can take the lift at the Administration Building to the second floor to access the Jackpot Room.

    *In line with the new regulations set by the National Council of Problem Gambling (NCPS), members entering Jackpot Room are required to register via signing-in at every single entry and signing-out whenever they exit the Room, and the Club is required to verify their status of exclusion every time they enter the rooms (including re-entry). The verification is conducted by staff at the registration counter at Jackpot Room’s main entrance. Those who are in the exclusion list will be denied entry.
