Dear USJ folks,
I have been trying to locate a public swimming pool or any facility open to the public for swimming in our area but even Google draws a blank. Can anyone help me on this?

I'm not talking about the Subang Golf Club for which you'll have to pay exorbitant fees just to be a member, not to mention the subscription fees. I was told the nearest to USJ is some club in Sunway Pyramid but that's also another private club I believe.

Cheerio.

This is one in SS13, a multi-sport facility complex. You cannot miss it as you drive along Jalan Kewajipan. A&W is next door.

That was fast. Thanks a zillion. We've passed by the place many times. Just didn't know it was a public swimming pool. Looking forward to bring my family there.

Meantime, stay united about the toll hike issue. If not for the fact that class action litigation is not available in this country and personal injunction actions are just too costly for folks like me, I think a legal challenge is warranted.

Ofcourse, public protest is to be encouraged. It is well within our constitutional rights. Don't let the current media propaganda lull us into complacence.

It is no longer a Samy Vellu issue. Since the Cabinet is behind him in this, then it's the entire government who must be responsible for this scandalous disregard for public opinion.

That's the Kompleks 3K Subang Jaya.

It has an indoor swimming pool and an outdoor children pool.

Entrance fee: RM2 (daytime) and RM3 (night time)
Public Holiday: RM 3 (daytime) and RM4 (night time)
For children: RM2 regardless of day/night or public holiday or not

Opening time:

9am - 12 pm (3 hours)
2pm - 5 pm (3 hours)
6pm - 9 pm (3 hours)

Tel: 5636 9233 (for info)

Apart from swimming pool, it has facilities such as badminton, squash & tennis court; pingpong and snooker and on Sundays there is even rythmic gynastic classes for children.

A well-equipped sport centre for our Subang Jaya community!!!
Hope you enjoy the facilities there!

Thanks again. That's pretty useful info. My first impression, from the fees alone, is that it's pretty reasonable. At least I know some good use is being made from the quit rents we've been paying.

A related issue is the traffic jam leading up to the place. Not to gripe but I think some thought must be given by MPSJ to resolve this. May be the traffic lights should be retimed according to the flow. Or may be that's already done and the problem still persists. Just thinking aloud.

i am very disappointed with the 3k swimming complex. the place is barely 3 years old and already the shower and toilet facilities are falling apart. is it just me or has anyone else noticed that the water is slightly greenish and smells of.... i dunno how to describe the smell...

please let me have your opinion...

hi guys,
i was wondering where malaysians usually go for a swim, if not having the convenience of the pool in a condo???
don't like those trips to jungle-like areas with small rivers and waterfalls, as the kids are to young and scared there.
where r the public pools in our area?? i am afraid that there are no such things beside sunway, as i experience malaysians to be vampires :D only coming out if the sun is gone. another starnge thingy bout us humans: matsalleh coming here to sunbath for 3 weeks non-stop, would like so much to have this weather at home, but malaysians hiding from the sun wanting to have this nice european climate 15 to 20 degrees - wow.
matsalleh = want to get nice suntan - malaysian = white is beautiful

Try the private clubs! Also, most hotels offer a Pool package to residents.

i think the nearest place would be 3K at SS13. it's an indoor swimming pool.

expat,

there is one at the 3K center at SS13. see an earlier thread on public swimming pool in subang jaya.

on the sun, well we get it all year round unlike the mat salleh so too much is bad for you ..bla..ppl are difficult to satisfy anyway. white is not necessarily all beautiful..do agree with you. beauty is within. that said europeans have a different perspective on beauty in general.

that said europeans have a different perspective on beauty in general.

oh yes they do, going to solarium to enjoy the electric sun, kinda microwave-oven hehehe ayam bakar.

Maybe you should "try" to understand the mentality and way of Matsalleh's life.

Imagine if you are living in a sub-zero temperature and weather condition for 3-4 months and 0 celsius to 5 celsius for 6 months..you skin are darn white. I am sure you will look for a week or two hot weather to escape from the cold conditions.

Now imagine if you are living in 30 degrees to 35 degrees all year round with the sun burning your skin. Will you still sun bath yourself after sun bathing everyday? I doubt it.

Sun bathing age your skin, this is scientifically proven.

Do you want to look like 40s even when you are only 20s?

White guys suntan because they hardly get any sun in their home country.
And their sun is so mild compared to the searing heat in malaysia.
I was in UK, US.

Malaysians like being fair not 'white'. ;) I also think this is actually a matter of personal preference.

To answer ur question, most ppl who live around here go to the 2 public swimming pool (SS13 as mention b4 & Kelana Jaya near the stadium).
Other than that, there are private clubs which can join and get to use their pool, Sunway Lagoon Club (not the Sunway Lagoon Resort), Holiday Villa Club and The Valley club.

I presume you are not living in the Indera Subang condominium though you are from USJ 6. The Indera Subang condominium in USJ 6 has a very nice swimming pool with beautiful landscaping. The pool is hardly used. This condo caters very much for the expatrate community. John Postill used to live here. Get to know a friend living here and you get to use the pool and sunbathe here in peace without hundreds of eyes googling at you. I can't assure you that this will not happen at 3K. Some may even pass comment "Gila punya orang. Sekarang musim panas, ada haze orang mahu aircond, ini matsalleh mahu goreng sendiri." Go figure out what they are saying.

i used to stay exactly there, and i am missing the pool a lot (my kids as well).
we hardly got to know ppl there, but there is one at least
i heard that public pools are not to clean (..and i can believe that ;-) ... ), so i will check for the clubs mentioned by chsum...

thanks guys

Try the Selangor Shooting Club at the old Terminal One Subang Airport. It is not a public pool but membership is dirt cheap. It only cost $600 to be a member (for whole family) and $25 a month. They have 2 swimming pools and one wading pool. They also have tennis and squash courts. And of course they have great shooting ranges for rifles, pistols, etc. And lastly the nice Indian lady there serves one of the best fried chicken around catering for lunch and dinner. I have been a member for years and I will recommend it to everybody. It is a great place for a family time. :cool:

Only frequent the squash court every thursday evening and sometimes the pool on saturdays.

So Chua, you play squash? come join me there on Thursday 6.30pm?

CS Chua
16-03-2005, 06:01 PM
Err.. Firefly, I do not float like a butterfly and sting like the bees anymore. I am more into DVDs, computer, travelling etc that appeal more to my middle-aged body. However I am trying to reduce my weight so I am into rope skipping and brisk walks now. Squash is killing when you do not have the stamina. Want to play chess instead? :D

Firefly
16-03-2005, 06:31 PM
Rope skipping!!!! wow!! :eek: you can do that then you must be way fitter than firefly here. :D

Firefly also around that age :( so keeping fit and fighting the loosing battle againest the buldge is becoming the norm. As for chess, it's been a long long long long time since I last saw a set. :D

CS Chua
16-03-2005, 07:41 PM
I can proudly say that I am capable of skipping 50 times non-stop. My target is 1000 times non-stop as advised by a friend - an extremely fit friend. I guess 50 is better than nothing. Next target 75!

Suddenly I feel old. Uncle? I must have gone into that phase of life unknowingly. Looks like I lost my innocence. :p Basically I am trying to cut down on food intake. Decrease input and increase output is my diet plan. I still whack a whole plate of nasi lemak but I will skip the next meal. It helps not to pile in 3 full meals a day. Only crazy Malaysians like us do that. Very few other nationalities do that, you know? In developed countries they have simple meal like a sandwich and an apple for lunch but a heavier meal for dinner. In poor countries they eat meat once or twice a week. It is only us that eat like crazy. Bad for the heart.

Hello Expat and fellow webmates,

There is a very nice public swimming pool opposite the Sultan's palace in Shah Alam, I think it was built originally for the Commonwealth games but wasn't used during the games. Few people know about it, so it is not crowded.

Do you know of a place around Subang Jaya, USJ or Sunway where I can send my 6 yrs old son for swimming lessons?

10-03-2006, 01:30 PM
just DO NOT go to the sunway lagoon club.
The coach there promised 8 lessons and viola! the kiddo can swim. The reality show is after 8 lessons, he will say "your kiddo needs another 8!"...I went there a few times, all his college student-looking assistant 'coaches' do are overseeing kids clinging to the pool side and blowing bubbles...call that learning to swim? Tipu orang punya. :mad:

My daughter has (small group) swimming lessons from Waterworks Swim School... Contact Alice @ 56357765 or 019 3044181. The fees are quite reasonable and can be quite accomodating to your time table.

They use the Goodyear Court 7 pool for classes...

Mebbe you shud give her a call for your inquiries..

Cheers :p

Hi there net rider. I was wondering if you (or maybe anyone else who knows) could tell me the pricing of the swimming pool and if it's open during the public holidays and maybe the timing too? =) Thks in advance.

Price to go swimming normally won't go above RM3.50 ... and there is one in 3K sports complex. So maybe you can check out there first. I personally prefer Kelana Jaya swimming pool there last time. Now, I don't know how good it is already. :rolleyes:

19-02-2007, 04:11 PM
I have been going there for quite some time. It's just that the water is quite dirty and also, the word cold would be underrated for the temperature of the water there! >_> So, I'm just looking for alternatives. :)

hi!
juz wanna add, maybe can consider uitm shah alam swimming complex..
the pool is definitely clean,the fee is only rm2(for non members) per entry..
it has separate swimming session for ladies and gents(great for muslim ladies or body-conscious ladies or those who just wants some privacy)
..the shower rooms condition has deteriorated from few yrs back..
but still oklaa..hard to find for a good,nice and cheap workout place these days.. :D

I know Malaysia is a warm country and there's no need for heated pools... but where can I bring my baby for a swim that's not too cold? I wouldn't want to take him out during mid-day for fear he may get sunburned.

My baby is 7 months old now. I would like to organize a swimming lesson for my baby. There are many benefits of start swimming early especially on the emotional and intellectual aspect according to my Paediatrician . I found a fantastic website about baby swimming at www.babyswimming.com

I have contacted Rob and Kathy McKay, author for the book “ Learns to swim”. They have personally recommended me an instructor in who has been trained under them.

I have contacted the instructor and she is unable to get permission from parents ( I thinks most of them are foreigner) in the baby class to allow me to join them.

The instructor is trained to conduct lesson for baby swimming .She could not conduct the lesson alone for my baby. I am asking if there is anyone who is interested to join me so that we can form a class and all babies fun together.

You could contact me at: eddiecsh@hotmail.com
( Parents from Puchong/ Subang/ Sunway / PJ/ Damansara area would be more convenient to attend)
