ABOUT CHINESE SWIMMING CLUB
The Chinese Swimming Club first started in 1905 by 9 energetic young men who had called themselves the “Tanjong Katong Swimming Party”. By 1909, the name “Chinese Swimming Club” was adopted and this is where the Club history begins. Swimming, both as a recreation and competitive sport, was growing in popularity in the Club. In the early years, swimming and water polo still took place in the open seas at high tide.
Subsequently, funds were raised to build pagars out into the sea to provide safe swimming for members and a venue for interclub competitions. In 1941, much to the excitement of the members, a new 3-storey Clubhouse as well as a proper 25m sea water swimming pool was opened.
By 1951, a full-sized Olympic swimming pool was completed and officially opened by Sir Franklin Gimson, the Governor of Singapore. The Club spared no effort in its expansion of facilities. Its current facilities include 2 Olympic-size swimming pools, an international standard water polo pool, 8 badminton courts and 3 rooftop tennis courts in addition to 2 squash courts. It also houses a 12-lane bowling alley and a mega gym for the fitness enthusiasts. The Club is 107 years old this year and has come a long way since its humble beginnings as the Tanjong Katong Swimming Party.
Its past Presidents include Mr Cheong Koon Seng, Mr Lee Kong Chian, Mr G H Kiat and Mr Soon Peng Yam. The current President is Mr Edwin Lee. The Club has an impressive track record of nurturing top national swimmers. The Golden Era for swimming in the Club is undoubtedly in the 1960’s when Dr Chan Ah Kow was appointed the Club Coach. Dr Chan’s daughter, Patricia Chan became Singapore’s first “Golden Girl” and swimming icon in the 1960s up to the early 70s. Patricia remains one of the most decorated sportsperson in the region.
The Club has not looked back since then, its swimmers have achieved unprecedented success in international competitions and is extremely proud that in its honour roll of outstanding sportsmen are 15 Club swimmers who had represented Singapore at the Olympic Games. They include; Neo Chwee Hock (1952), Bernard Chan, Tan Thuan Heng (1964), Roy Chan, Patricia Chan (1972), Oon Jin Teik (1984), Ang Peng Siong, David Lim (1984 & 1988), Desmond Koh (1988, 1992 & 1996), Tan V-Meng (1992), Gerald Koh (1996), Daniel Liew (2000), Mark Chay, Gary Tan (2000 & 2004) and Mylene Ong (2012).
Committed to its legacy in swimming excellence, today the Club runs a base up swimming programme which provides learn-to-swim up to competitive level training for its 766 registered swimmers.
