Long wait for drinks not acceptable at world-class venue

Last week, I attended the Singapore Badminton Open held at the Singapore Indoor Stadium. I found that spectators had to queue for 45 minutes to buy a cup of coffee or tea, or a bottle of water. As there was only one booth, the queue was the same for both food and drinks, and it extended and snaked outside the immediate area. At such venues, there should not be any queue that is 50 or 60 people deep. This is......

Govt should buy back, run Sports Hub

Little has changed since the Sports Hub opened under the SportsHub Pte Ltd consortium and brought with it a slew of problems (Getting to nub of the hub, Feb 14).

Based on its letter, SportSG appears to have informed and explained the situation to the whistle-blower, Mr Daniel Tay, without informing the public until Dr Tan Chew Wai wrote in as well (Govt must step ......

The Malaysian government paid for the broadcasting rights to the World Cup, so that their people can watch the World Cup games for free. Why can't the Singapore government do the same?  The actual cost can be offset by the advertising revenue. the government only needs to foot the difference, or provide a grant to cover (say) half of the copyright cost.  ......

Lousy gym in Delta Sports Complex. Decades old equipment that dont work well. Only 1 piece of each equipment and weight. U have 2 queue and wait for some people to leave so u can use the gym at peak hour sometimes and u always have 2 wait 4.equipment. Thats why i didnt bother to use the free $100 the govt gave a few years ago 2 use in their sports facilities. Anyway if the govt was serious about getting people to exercise for life, theyd have given us free lifetime use of their sports facil......
