The Kinta Swimming Club (KSC), which was under construction for quite some time, has finally opened its Olympic-size swimming pool to members. KSC is located along Silibin Road beside the bridge.
At the soft launching recently, its president Mr. Hong Weng Kuen said that the renovation of the club would cost RM5 million.
Besides the swimming pool, there will be a gymnasium, sauna rooms, games room, library, aerobics studio, multi-purpose hall and coffee house.
“KSC is not an Elite Club, but only a swimming club with an Olympic-size fresh water pool plus other facilities for the ‘Family-In-The-Street’,” Hong declared.
The club, he said, will be conducting swimming classes and plans to train athletes to compete in the Sukma games.”
His aim is to bring back the glorious years of 1950s when the club produced hundreds of swimmers and life guards.
The club is recruiting Transferable Subscribing Members with the motto ‘A Place Where Family Play Together and Stay Together’. The membership fee is RM5,000 and monthly subscription is RM45. Currently there are about 100 Life Members and 300 Ordinary Members.
