Centaurs Group: Our Story

Centaurs was established in 2002 by Tim Lambert to provide rugby coaching to young schoolkids.

Since those early days, when the initial cohort of 15 kids across 3 age groups ran out on borrowed school pitches, we have grown to be a leading sports and outdoor recreational activity provider in Singapore. Our customers vary from kids aged 3 to 17 playing Rugby, Netball and Touch, to adults playing a multitude of sports, sports pitch hirers, and one-off kids “Pit Party” and Holiday Camp attendees.

An inspired child is an inspirational child

We now lease, have built on and manage 12 hectares of sports and recreation facilities at Turf City, Bukit Timah in the heart of Singapore. These include: 2 full-size floodlit rugby/soccer pitches, one of which is a Rhino Turf 3G artificial surface, the other natural grass; our 6000sqm Mini-fields; a ‘Jungle’ set in a ravine where we offer a military-styled obstacle course for kids’ Parties & Camps, a Jungle Trail for mountain bike and cyclocross races, and a trail-running track for ‘off-road’ mass participation events.

We manage and host a variety of Rugby, Touch and Netball tournaments, leagues and friendly matches for kids. Our facilities are also used for other sports and recreations such as Football, Gaelic Football, Ultimate Frisbee, Lacrosse, Drone Racing, BMX coaching, and more.

Our now worldwide membership is engaged both online and off. The over 1000-follower Centaurs Facebook pages and growing Instagram community are active, as is our “alumni” page for Old Centaurians.

Our Social Investment footprint reaches way beyond the Centaurs Group stable of sports and facilities for the local community. We have aligned with three international charities to assist with their efforts in raising funds and awareness: The Global Fund for Children (UK Trust); Kampuchea Balopp (Cambodia); and, Future Hope (India), helping them help kids! We are always on the lookout for additional suitable partners.

Our vision: be a leading provider of development programmes, facilities and events encompassing sports and personal learning & development.

Our mission: nurture and enrich the lives of children and adults by developing their physical, mental and life skills through involvement in sports, team-building and leadership training programmes.
