History of Singapore Paintball

Paintball started in Singapore about 10 years ago (Year 2000) ...Not bad for a small country, not bad indeed. Paintball was introduced to the world by farmers in the 70's when it was used to mark cows in the farm. Reasons simple...for differentiation.

Since then, paintball has not changed much and still serves it primary purpose of "marking". Thus, paintball guns are also known as paintball markers. I dont like it when people call it guns...sounds very violent and very war.

Paintball first set foot onto Singapore at NTUC chalets, then Sentosa, then OCC, then Tuas and the latest inclusion: Singapore's Biggest Paintball Park, Red Dynasty.

Home to Singapore's First Paintball Team, the Red Sevens, paintball is certainly going to change people's perspective in 2008. Red Sevens is by far the only Singapore team to have tasted World Cup Asia. With 11 participating countries and a young paintball history, Singapore has a lot to learn...

Red Dynasty caters to both recreational and tournament players. Certainly a One-Stop Centre for anyone who wants to pick up paintball as a lifestyle sport.
