Social options for older expats (in their 60s)?

my inlaws will be relocating to Singapore and I'd like to be able to point them in the right direction for meeting like-minded (similar life stage) people. Does anyone know good social options (clubs etc) for expats in their 60s?
They are Australian so I will suggest ANZA. Any others?
