SPNS Leg 2 Release
Singapore’s inaugural paintball tournament, Singapore Paintball Novice Series (SPNS) 2008
“Bringing paintball closer to the community…”
SINGAPORE, 10 June 08 – Singapore’s first official paintball tournament, the Singapore Paintball Novice Series (SPNS) 2008 Leg 2 will be held on 22 June 2008 at Red Dynasty Paintball Park located in Bottle Tree Park, Yishun.
With a humble beginning of 7 participating teams in SPNS Leg 1, Leg 2 of the SPNS series will see at least 15 paintball teams battling one another, vying for the Champion title. “With a two fold increase in the number of participating teams as compared to Leg 1, there is a clear indication that paintball is picking up in Singapore” said Jane Koh, President of the Paintball Association (Singapore), PBAS and tournament director of the SPNS. She added, “With the support from the Singapore Sports Council in SPNS Leg 2, we hope that more people can be introduced to the game of paintball and recognize paintball as a sport for people of all ages.
Amongst the 15 participating teams is PSG Warfreakz Charlie, an all female team formed by a group of Filipinos who work in Singapore. This group of ladies practice paintball regularly and are definitely no pushovers during the competition.
For SPNS, teams can either choose to play in any leg or commit themselves to the entire series in which they will accumulate championship points to be crowned Grand Champion of the series. The competition will take on a 3-on-3 format where the field layout and rules are adopted from the Millennium Series, a highly popular and competitive paintball league in Europe. Prior to participating in SPNS, all participants must undergo a Basic Tournament Orientation (BTO) course which requires them to comprehend competition rules and safety regulations in the sport.
Benedict Chen, a member of the Red Sevens paintball team said “Paintball is a tactical game which helps to promote teambuilding and confidence.” The Red Seven was formed in 2006 and has been promoting paintball in Singapore and competing in regional competitions such as the World Cup Asia 2007 which was held in Malaysia.
The Singapore Paintball Novice Series 2008 is sanctioned by Paintball Association of Singapore (PBAS) and its supporting partners: Singapore Sports Council, Bottle Tree Park, Red Dynasty Paintball Park, Botak Jones, Streetballax,, MPOC, Napshot and Red Sevens Paintball Team.
