There was no mention in the post as to why the deterrence action was being taken.
Nee Soon Town Council has since responded to the issue.
The basketball hoops at the Yishun Nature Park basketball court were sealed off as an enforcement measure due to noise disturbances after 10pm.
The town council said it received feedback from residents regarding noise emanating from the court after 10pm.
The town council said: "We received feedback from residents regarding ongoing noise from the court after 10pm which has caused disturbance to them resting at night."
The hoops are currently being sealed off from 10pm to 8am daily only and reopen at 8am for public use.
The town council said a notice has been put up to inform and remind users about this measure.
