Singapore Paintball Novice Series 2008
Grand Champions of inaugural tournament to be crowned on Sunday
SINGAPORE, 8 October 08 – The overall champions of Singapore’s inaugural paintball tournament will be crowned after the 3rd leg of the Singapore Paintball Novice Series (SPNS) 2008 on 12 October at the Red Dynasty Paintball Park in Yishun.
“It will be history in the making as we will be crowning the first overall champion for the Singapore Paintball Novice Series,” said Jane Koh, President of the Paintball Association Singapore (PBAS).
“This is an exciting time for paintball in Singapore as the participation for the tournament over the three legs has been very encouraging. We hope that the success of the SPNS will encourage more people to consider playing paintball as a competitive sport,” she added.
The first and second legs of SPNS 2008 were held in March and June this year. Teams are allowed to play in any leg or commit themselves to the entire series to accumulate championship points to be crowned Grand Champion of the series.
The competition will be played on a 3-on-3 format with each team comprising of three first team players and two reserve players. The field layout and rules are based on the Millennium Series, a highly popular and competitive pan-European paintball league.
The PBAS have invited Mr Junaidi Kalil, President of the Malaysia Paintball Marshalls and Head of Rules and Regulations for the Paintball Asia League Series to officiate the final leg of the SPNS as Head Marshal. Mr Junaidi began officiating in 2003 and was the first Asian to officiate at the Millennium Series during the Paris World Cup 2005.
The Singapore Paintball Novice Series 2008 is sanctioned by Paintball Association of Singapore (PBAS) and supported by the Singapore Sports Council, Bottle Tree Park, Red Dynasty Paintball Park, Squad Skinz, Aspire Crystal, Streetballax, Napshot and Red Sevens Paintball Team.
