HomeTeamNS Bedok Reservoir
Sports enthusiasts may be familiar with Bedok Reservoir for its Forest Adventure obstacle course and zipline as well as its kayak rental services. The nature park has recently added a spanking new clubhouse that NSmen and Easties, in general, will be proud to show off.
Boasting state-of-the-art facilities, HomeTeamNS Bedok Reservoir sits on the banks of the reservoir and is open to the public, with our army boys enjoying special member rates.
Here’s a first look at what you can expect to do and see at the clubhouse.
Fun activities such as a waterslide & gamified obstacle course
You don’t have to go all the way to Sentosa’s Adventure Cove Waterpark to have a splashing fun time, nor do you have to roast in the sun or worry about rain at Aqua Adventure. Situated within the clubhouse, this indoor waterpark features the longest indoor waterslide where you spiral your way down 114m.
Created by the same folks behind Adventure HQ, there’s also an aquatic rope course to cater to those looking for a challenge. And if you’re afraid of heights, grab a float or borrow a pack of waterproof UNO cards and just chill in the pool.
If you’d prefer to stay nice and dry, head to the climbing walls and show off your core muscles as you make your way up their uniquely designed walls – one of them resembles a clock tower.
There are also 2 routes next to each other with buzzers at the top where you can compete with your buddy to see who climbed up the fastest. Timings are recorded to the T so there’s no dispute there.
Aqua Adventure has yet to officially open to the public so keep a look out for announcements on their socials.

Yes, we’ve got plenty of indoor playgrounds in Singapore, but Action Motion stands out for its added digital experience. Basically, they’ve turned an indoor playground from being basic to a score-tabulating gamified system.
The space features a multi-level obstacle course, net maze, and numerous ball pits.
Tap your RFID wrist tag before and after each challenge to record your score and timing.
As you go through the various challenges with different difficulty levels, your timings get recorded and displayed on a leaderboard – perfect for group hangouts spiced up with a little competition or a fun corporate team activity.
Lovers of climbing gyms, up your game with Action Motion’s bouldering version 2.0. Not only do you have to climb these AR walls, but you have to follow the pattern prescribed by the game, so no suka suka placing your feet wherever you want to.
Each slot lasts 2.5 hours allowing plenty of time to try each and every station. The minimum height for young ones is 125cm and those below 12 years old have to be accompanied by an adult.
Admission: From $35
Opening hours: Tue-Fri 12pm-8.30pm | Sat-Sun 10am-9.30pm (Closed on Mondays)

Amongst its many facilities, the clubhouse also has a ballroom with a capacity of 40 tables that can be booked for weddings and corporate events; a thinking room that acts as a workspace for hot desking or meetings; and a member’s lounge for quiet time to read or watch Netflix with earphones plugged in.
Sports facilities including an infinity pool & CrossFit gym
Now an infinity pool with panoramic views of the reservoir is somewhere we’d like to be at all day. Here’s where you get your money shot for the ‘Gram.
The 50m pool has 6 lanes and lots of sheltered deck chairs to lounge about.
Given how our NSmen have to keep up their fitness level, of course, there’s a gym at the clubhouse. Specialising in CrossFit workouts, Fitness Workz Garage offers equipment for high-intensity gymming and programmes such as spin classes. What’s more, you’ll also get access to the steam room and pool.
Admission: From $8.60/pax for walk-ins | From $445 for 12-month memberships

Plenty of dining options including dim sum & hotpot
Whether you’re spending an entire day at HomeTeamNS Bedok Reservoir or live within the area, you’ve got a couple of choices when it comes to feeding the belly – both halal and non-halal. Those enjoying a BBQ or villa stay can stock up on snacks and fast food from 7-Eleven and Burger King.
There’s Fun Toast and Sum Dim Sum for a local breakfast, Xiao Mu Deng for hotpot, and Sri Bistari which is famous for its ayam penyet. If you’re in the mood for some drinks and live music, then head down to George’s.
Artistic mural walls & vehicle display to commemorate the NSmen
This wall showcases the transformation of uniforms of the serving men over the years.
Celebrating our Home Team, there are several mural feature walls around the clubhouse commemorating their contributions to our country. Looking at them is sure to evoke pride for our defence force.
There’s also a vehicle wall in the foyer displaying the miniature vehicles of the Singapore Police Force and Singapore Civil Defence Force. This is any car enthusiast or collector’s dream.
