The Toa Payoh Swimming Complex is located in the heart of a residential community in Singapore. Located at 301 Toa Payoh Lor 6, S(319392), Toa Payoh Swimming Complex[1] is within walking distance from Toa Payoh Mrt. It is closed half day for maintenance on Tuesday. Operating hours are from: Tuesday: 2:30pm – 9:30pm, Wednesday to Monday: 8am to 930pm. Together with the Toa Payoh Sports Hall, the Swimming Complex is one of many public swimming complexes operated by the Singapore Sports Council. The swimming complex itself consists of five pools, of which three are meant for public utilisation (a wading pool, a teaching pool and a training pool) while the other two in a separate section of the complex are used extensively for elite training by the national teams in the sports of water polo, synchronised swimming and diving.

Toa Payoh Swimming Complex has played host to the National Schools’ Swimming Championships for many years and, since March 2006, has been hosting the synchronised swimming event of the Asian Swimming Championships.

Most notably, the Toa Payoh Swimming Complex was the venue for the aquatics (diving) event for the inaugural Summer Youth Olympics Games that took place in Singapore in 2010.
