Academic excellence we Singaporeans really know how to put it high up on a pedestal, don’t we? We were brought up to think that way and, truth be told, we are passing on that ‘legacy’ to our children. (Let’s skip the denial process, shall we? I am very much guilty of this as well.)

Sports are really important for a child’s development, not just physically but mentally and characteristically as well. That’s why we’ve listed 10 best sports to play with your family.
