Farrer Park Swimming Complex was revived in 2004 and has since been managed by APS Swim School (S) Pte Ltd. 

Opened on 22 February 1957 by former Chief Minister Lim Yew Hock, Farrer Park Swimming Complex under our care over the last 18 years has been the nurturing ground for many Olympians & Paralympians such as Christel Bouvron, Bryan Tay, Gregory Burns, Theresa Goh, Yip Pin Xiu & Toh Wei Soong, and many other Southeast Asian Games medallists.

The reception and support we’ve had since we started operations here has been nothing short of amazing and we’ve been made to truly feel like part of a much bigger family. 

More than 15,000 swimmers have come through the APS Swim School and APSC systems over the last 18 years since we started operations at Farrer Park, which is an integral part of Singapore’s sporting history.

Unfortunately, it is with deep regret that we need to inform you that we will no longer be able to continue our programmes at the Farrer Park location as the facility is being returned to the landlords. The final laps will need to be swum, and we will need to vacate our historic venue by 30 June 2022, with a possible extension being offered to end of August 2022.

APS Swim School (Learn to Swim, Endurance and Cross Training Programs):
We would like to inform you that we will relocate from Farrer Park Swimming Complex and continue our learn to swim programmes at both ACSI and ACJC locations. 

We hope for your continued support and the opportunity to be part of your child’s swim journey at both ACSI and ACJC locations.

APSC (Swimming and Artistic Swimming Competitive Programs):
Over the last few months, there have been many discussions with Sport Singapore and Singapore Swimming Association over an alternative location for us to accommodate all our programmes at Farrer Park. To date, unfortunately, no satisfactory nor feasible solution.

The proposed solutions put forth do not solve the long-term viability of our swim club, which has been in existence for a quarter of a century having been started in 1996.

While disappointed, we will keep engaging with the various parties till a workable solution is reached, and will also explore other avenues to ensure that the legacy of both APS Swim School and APSC will continue, and to ensure that there is as little impact to training regimes and programmes. 

We will update all of you again as soon as possible, once we are clear of the way forward for all of you at APS.  

In the meantime, we would like to encourage all of you to make as many memories as possible in our remaining time at this hallowed swimming ground.
