Social and Sporting Clubs



Moving to a new country means leaving family and friends behind. A great way to meet new people and perhaps even do a little networking is by joining a social or sporting club. Clubs facilities vary but can offer swimming pools, gyms, restaurants and even classes. 

Club members know what it is like to be a stranger in new country and can offer advice and tips to make the transition a little easier. Associations and clubs could play an even more important role for a non working spouse. 

Spouses can easily feel lonely or overwhelmed because they don't have an instant network of work colleagues. Most clubs organize social gatherings, charity events or even book club meetings,which can be a lot of fun especially if there is a little wine or cocktails involved!

Some of the clubs in Singapore are:

American Association of Singapore  www.aasingapore.com
Australian & New Zealand Association  www.anza.org.sg
British Association of Singapore  www.britishassociation.org.sg
Canadian Association of Singapore  www.canadians.org.sgF
French Association in Singapore  www.afsingapour.com
German Association  www.german-association.org.sg

Another way to become more integrated in Singapore society is by volunteering. There are many volunteering opportunities that cover a broad spectrum of interests. By giving your time and talent you will not only be helping others but you will meet other like minded people. 

Some of the volunteering options are:

Red Cross Singapore  www.redcross.sg
The Salvation Army, Singapore www.salvationarmy.org
SPCA Singapore  www.spca.org.sg
Habitat for Humanity SG  www.habitat.org.sg
SG Cares  www.sgcares.org
