Swimming

Swimming is a fun way to exercise, besides being a fundamental, life-saving skill. Those who do not like team sport may prefer swimming as its competitive streak might not be so pronounced. Swimmers can just waddle and play in the pool. And given the hot climate of Singapore, swimming easily ranks as the favorite pastime for the residents here.
