Significance of Singapore Community Centre

Each Singapore community centre is strategically located to well support the recreational and social needs of the residential estates in Singapore.

With the aim of building a sense of community and togetherness, different races of people with common interests in the same neighbourhood are brought together via a myriad of group programmes and activities such as learning a new skill, language, game or sport, and attending classes on cookery, art and craft, music, dance, ballet, etc. Good proximity and affordable courses fees are all reasons for these ‘club houses’ to be popular among the masses.

Today there are more than 100 ‘club houses’ under the charge of People’s Association of Singapore (PA). Like this one shown above, they are distinct buildings designated as part of the Housing Development Board projects.

Private coaching of locally popular sports such as badminton takes place in the community centre.
