FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS ON FEES AND F&B LEVY BILLED IN JUNE 2020

Q1: Why am I charged for June subscription fees when the Club is closed?

Ans: The Club had waived 2 months of subscription fees for April and May 2020. Chinese Swimming Club (CSC) is believed to be one of the very few clubs in Singapore that has waived subscription fees in an effort to assist our members during the Circuit Breaker period. As announced by the Club’s Management, the Club needs to be prudent as the reserves are not limitless. There are fixed costs incurred in maintaining the Club.

Q2: Will there be any refund or rebates for June subscription fees?

Ans: There will be no refund or rebates for June subscription fees.

Q3: Other clubs are giving F&B vouchers; will CSC be giving too?

Ans: Other clubs continued to bill subscription fees and give out free vouchers. While CSC had waived 2 months of subscription fees hence, there will be no F&B vouchers given to members.

Q4: Will the Club bill F&B levy in June?

Ans: Yes. The Club will resume its billing of F&B levy in June and expiry of F&B levy will be extended till December 2020.

Q5: Is the Club going to bill Section fees and Training fees in June

Ans: The Club Management has agreed to waive Section fees and Training fees in June.

REVISED SOCIAL SWIMMING TIME SLOTS & SAFE DISTANCING MEASURES (SDM) AND SAFE MANAGEMENT MEASURES (SMM)

Dear Members,

Since the re-opening of the Club and its accompany facilities on 19 June 2020, the Club has received numerous feedback from members on the arrangement of social swimming at Recreation Complex (RC) Pool. In view of this, we have reviewed and assessed the feasibility of social swimming at the RC so as to cater to the swimming needs of more members. With effect from Saturday, 27 June 2020, we are pleased to revise the social swimming time slots at RC as follows:-

Recreation Complex (RC) Pool

Time Allocated to
6am to 9am & 4pm to 9pm Lap swim for General Members
9.30am to 3.30pm Lap swim for Seniors Members only (60 years and above)
9am to 9.30am & 3.30pm to 4pm Pool closed
This is to prevent inter-mixing between groups and to facilitate the cleaning and sanitizing of the railings and surfaces around the pool and in the changing room.

In addition, we would also like to remind you on the following SDM and SMM that we have put in place:-

  • The Sports Complex Swimming Pool is reserved only for Swimmers below 60 years old.

  • Pool entry point at Sports Complex will be in front of the towel counter. Swimming lanes are to be entered at Swimming Control Room side for even numbered lanes and at Arrival Pavilion side for odd numbered lanes.

  • Odd numbered lanes shall turn clockwise while even numbered lanes shall turn anti-clockwise.

  • Swimmers are to maintain a 2 metre distance from one another at all times.

  • Maximum of 5 swimmers per lane.

As part of the transition while we all embark on the new normal when the Club reopens, following are important details that we would need members to take note and extend your support:

SafeEntry
All personals are required to wear a mask when they are in the Club. Before entering the Club, it is compulsory for everyone to check-in via SafeEntry using their own mobile device to scan our Club’s QR code which is available at all entry points. Please show our staff stationed at entry point once check-in process is completed and the staff will help to take your temperature.

Signing in of guests will not be allowed for facilities usage except for dining at F&B outlets during this period.

F&B
Our three F&B outlets will resume for dine-in but with safe distancing and each table will be limited to a group of five people. With the reduced seating capacity, takeaway and Drive-Thru services will still continue for members’ needs. 3 Bars will continue to operate only as a dining venue and the karaoke rooms remain closed till further advisory from the authorities. We
would appreciate members’ kind gesture to vacate their seats upon finishing their meals so that the waiting time for other members can be reduced.

For social swimming, the Swimming Pool at Recreational Complex and Competition Pool at Sports Complex will be opened for members only (no guests) and with restricted numbers. As part of the safety measures, the Water Polo Pool, Beginners’ Pool and Great Bubble Reef (Fun Pool) at Sports Complex will remain closed till further advice.

The following measures will be in place for the respective facilities:

  • For social get together, group size shall not exceed 5 people.

  • For Flex gym, maximum occupancy shall not exceed 29 people at any one time.

  • For 12 Lanes Bowling Alley, booking will be opened for every alternate two lanes.

  • Users shall put on mask and maintain 1 metre distancing from one another while resting.

  • Refrain from any physical contact such as shaking hands, hi-fives, fist bump, etc.

  • All Sports Complex Rooftop users must exit from the rooftop when it rains.

  • Users shall leave the facilities immediately when they finish their activities.

  • For your own safety, users are advised to go home and change if possible and avoid loitering in our changing rooms unnecessarily.

Club Activities & Training Programme
The Club has been working closely with SportSG and the relevant National Sports Associations to ensure our training programmes are conducted in compliance with the new guidelines of precautionary measures. This will also apply to the planning of Club activities and programmes for our members as the well-being of participants is our top priority. More details will be released once we receive the confirmation.

For our Club to remain open, we seek members’ compliance and co-operation with our Club’s officials to ensure we do not flout the principles of safe management. We are looking forward to welcoming all members back to the Club!

Thank you.
