    Default Bishan sports hall closed till 4 oct 10 ! Hougang Sports hall left with four courts?

    ibook webby notification

    d) Bishan Sports Hall will be closed from 19 Nov 2009 to 4 Oct 10 for upgrading works for the Singapore 2010 Youth Olympics Games.

    e) Hougang Sports Hall will be closed from 19 Nov to 10 Oct 2010 for the conversion of badminton courts 5 to 12 to a gymnastics arena. Courts 1 to 4 will be available for volleyball?? and badminton bookings.

    for most of us and especially my regular thurs group, its as good as not playing in hougang sports hall for like one entire year or worse, dont even need to think of playing there at peak hours during weekdays. 4 courts every week to share among the entire hougang population ? thats crazy and the worse thing is that the volleyball people get to book their courts earlier than badminton people. how to compete for courts with them? Volleyball people are one bunch of worse court wasters i have ever seen. sometimes 5 people or less takes up 4 badminton courts just to train !!or even worse, they book n cancel their training at the last minute !!! i can imagine Bishan regulars will start looking to toa payoh or yio chu kang sports hall. the fight for courts will really heat up

    any good suggestions from regular hougang sports hall sessions organisers? sigh ....

    Strange lor ...... Why can't they build a multi Storey Sports Hall , then the courts will be double , Triple if then build 3 storey high ! It benefits all parties . They also say they have foresight ....... they see things further than us . But when they build the building that time , it seems that they can't see further than us . Really a Multi Purpose Hall . Got ping pong , gymnastics , VolleyBall ...... why not add wushu , basketball , indoor football , folks dance , company D & D so to make it a truly Multi Purpose Hall .

    So Hougang SH will only have 4 badminton courts in future? That's frustrating for badminton lovers staying in that zone. Any school or Community Centers that are available for booking over there then? The government should open all school's sports hall for usage.

    have you ever seen a multi-storey sports hall in SG? or anywhere else in the world for that matter? it is not financially or structurally viable to construct such a facility unless nobody will complain about the exorbitant booking fees (ie. $20 per court per hour).

    honestly, i havent seen anyone play volleyball in Bishan Sports Hall for the past few years. and considering that badminton has always been allocated 4 courts, i dont think it will be any tougher to get courts during the upgrading period than it is right now.

    but if you guys really feel strongly about the restricted sports facilities, can always approach your MP or write to the relevant authorities.

    Haha , so is time to built a multi storey Multi Purpose Hall ? Well , IMHO , Singapore doesn't have the land as what other countries have . If we can be the 1st country to have A380 , why can't we be the 1st country to built multi storey Multi Purpose Hall ? Maybe other countries will follow after that . Same with the ERP system , right ? At least with this new invention , everyone can enjoy their favourite sports and might live longer .

    Actually, I have seen a multi storey sports hall in Taiwan before. On the lower floor, they had 6 badminton courts and on the upper floor, they had a large area which is shared by volley ball and basketball, I do not know how many basketball courts that accomodated but definitely 2 volleyball games were in session when I was there. It was quite impressive really.
