One Year to SEA Games Festivities, Sports Hub Community Open House
The weekend of 27-28 June 2014 saw nearly 50,000 people visit the Sports Hub, where on the Friday, a fireworks and laser extravaganza – enjoyed by athletes past and present, key members of the sporting fraternity and NSA invitees, signalled the one year countdown to the 28th SEA Games. The following day allowed the opportunity for members of the public to not only view the facilities and surrounding areas which include the Sport Library, Beach Volleyball Court and Kallang Wave Mall, but also enjoy various sporting activities due to the great assistance provided by the NSAs including Badminton, Table Tennis, Volleyball, Netball, Silat, Judo, Boxing, Taekwondo, Sepak Takraw, Hockey, Football, Petanque, Archery, Floorball and Tennis.

Facilities for all
The Singapore Sports Hub is one of the largest sports facilities infrastructure Public-Private-Partnership (PPP) projects in the world. This chosen mode of service delivery reflects the interests at play – the use of resources by Government, in tandem with private enterprise with the sporting community and the wider public as key considerations. This is mirrored, for example, where the training of elite athletes will be coordinated with the public usage of the same facilities. From August to September, the fine tuning of the training schedule and use of the facilities will continue until the official commencement of training at the Singapore Sports Hub in October 2014.
