Team Captain, Kenny Leow
Clair Laire Faire, Derek
They might be known as the Heartbreakers but these boys sure do know how to show their love! Inspired by Team Captain Kenny Leow, the team decided to go for a day out not at the regular paintball field but to Woodlands Bloodbank... yes, to donate blood. A unique outing I must say. On why the team decided "to give" instead of "to inflict", Kenny exclaimed: "This is a good opportunity for everyone to come together and contribute to the society, this is for a good cause!" And yes, we do agree. Perhaps the Heartbreakers can initiate a blood donation drive for the local paintball community to showcase the warmth and love amongst the local players.
Having won the 2011 Overall Novice Division Champion, the Heartbreakers is one of Singapore's most promising paintball team. The team meets up regularly at sport stadium for core exercises such as long duration exercises with short explosive drills. When asked about promoting to the Open Division, Kelly exclaimed that something is in the works and they will soon be playing in the higher divisions. Preparations are underway to move to the big stage.
We wish them all the best and hope that every team in Singapore can follow this healthy and meaningful trend!

19 March 2012 - Fresh from the oven and into the local paintball scene is a newly formed team known as Paint Demonz, a team which team members have an average height of 1.65m! Well, if you think these guys are kids and teenagers, think twice. Winning the Singapore Paintball Series (SPS) Rookie Challenge 2012 against 3 other local teams such as Still Thinking, Zon3 and Prodigy-SG, this is one team that will definitely catch your attention due to the petite physique. With the absence of height, this team makes it up for their agility and speed by clinching the Champion position. The Rookie Challenge is an annual affair introduced by the SPS committee to provide players who are new to the game of competition paintball to compete at a leveled platform. This competition has a stringent regulation to only allow participants who have not been previously registered in any of the SPS events.
The Rookie Challenge was first introduced by Red Dynasty Paintball Park in 2008 and this responsibility has since fall under the organization of the SPS to provide the competition with a professionally run outfit and to allow new teams to bridge similarities into the main SPS events which will be organized twice a year at national levels. The Rookie Challenge as some players mentioned is the "Mecca" event for Singapore paintball. An event where all if not most beginner players would participate before they proceed to engage in more hardcore paintball. A platform where players learn the tricks and treats of paintball similar to attending paintball classes in school.
The newly formed teams were not left alone as several "veteran" players who were formerly participants of the the Rookie Challenge came to share their experience about field walking and covering of lanes. It was an affair for everyone who like paintball. Prodigy-SG who was placed in the 2nd position had an early start which saw the team demolishing the Paint Demonz in their first game with 3 players alive. The team remained consistence throughout the entire tournament who saw them 3 points short of winning the champion title. Team Still Thinking who was made up by a group of friends was playing for the first time together and committed an early false start as the players were all hyped up by the intensity of the game. They finished the event in the last placing. Team Zon3 which had a slow start with losses came back into the game in the 2nd round which saw them getting 2 draws and winning their last game with a 5-0 finish. This team which was made up by international students came into the tournament as no pushovers as they were readily prepared with protective gears such as knee guards and protective suit which is not allowed in the main SPS events. However, the organizers accepted their request as this event was mainly to induct new players to competition paintball.
As a SPS feeder event, the Rookie Challenge was officiated by the SPS Referees, a refereeing body which was formed under the SPS committee to oversee the development and promotion of paintball refereeing in Singapore. Senior referee, Eugene Lau took on the important role as the Head Referee under the guidance of SPS Referee Manager, Idi. This tournament saw the gathering of 4 batches of referees coming together to accomplish this event. The next SPS Rookie Challenge 2012 is scheduled on 15 July 2012.

13 March 2012 (Singapore) – Paintball may sound like a game for the young generation being typically described with words like adrenaline-rushing, fast-paced and crazy fun. NTUC Eldercare folks proved the stereotype thinking rather wrong on 13 March 2012. 40 young-hearted senior citizens stomped Red Dynasty Paintball Park with a great sense of determination and a tinge of curiosity – being curious on what exactly paintball is and whether they can do what the young people are doing too.
Paintball is a team sports which involves specific skills sets in shooting and athletic ability. It is typically played in teams of 5 persons with a roster of up to 7-10 persons in a standard-sized field. The objective for each team is to eliminate the opponents through shooting paintballs which mark the opponents and capturing the flag to win the game. Competitively, it is a sports that is played in over 40 countries in the world and, recreationally, in over 60 countries. In Singapore, this game can be played at Red Dynasty Paintball Park located in Bottle Tree Park which is famous for its live seafood, fishing activities, corporate venue for major events and kampong-style concept village.
Red Dynasty Paintball Park organized a unique event – NTUC Eldercare Paintball Challenge 2012 – for the members of the centre under NTUC Eldercare which takes care of a group of senior citizens. In collaboration with Bottle Tree Park, this event is a reflection of the strong commitment of both organizations in helping the less fortunate. As an initiative in corporate social responsibility, Red Dynasty Paintball Park hopes to promote the values of voluntarism and proactivity in encouraging active aging among the paintball community.
About 40 senior citizens signed up for NTUC Eldercare Paintball Challenge 2012 and stepped into a paintball park for the first time for all of the participants. The participants were shown around and briefed on the rules of paintball challenge. Once the challenge started, the participants got all excited about the idea of shooting paintballs and displayed eager faces. The participants with the higher scores began sharing tips on how to shoot better while the rest were more interested in cheering their friends on. The top shooter of the NTUC Eldercare Paintball Challenge 2012 was an unsuspecting, kind-looking female Malay elderly above 60 years old, beating the rest of the participants including her male counterparts by a clear margin.
In support of Vision 2030, the adapted paintball program launched by Red Dynasty Paintball Park aims to help more senior citizens to stay connected and engaged through sports, and, most importantly, to stay active. Given the success of the first event with NTUC Eldercare, more events of similar nature targeting the senior citizens may take place at Red Dynasty Paintball Park to build it a choice venue for sports engagement for the senior citizens, working class adults, youth and the less fortunate in the Singapore society. Let’s share the love!

This team was formed in 2006. The purpose of forming Singapore's first competitive paintball team was mooted with a sole objective of "representation". It was not long when a few strangers with a common interest came together and talk paintball all day long. There was no benchmark to follow, there was no pressure to perform and members of the team were just happy coming together every weekend satisfying their hunger for paintball games. Fast forward 6 years and this team has become a household name in the regional paintball scene. Having won the Singapore Paintball Series Open Division Overall Champion in 2011 and the Malaysia Paintball Official Circuit Division 2 Overall Champion in 2011, the team was on fire. Great battles were not won overnight neither were Champions. Members of the team took pride in donning their team jersey every time they step onto the field. Soon it was not just about being able to represent... it was about winning. It was about getting that difficult win every time we step into the field, it was about standing on the podium every time we represent, and it was about all the pride, glory and honour that make us a name to be reckoned with. But nevertheless, all good things must come to an end. Great teams fall after winning championships, great leaders pass after great battles... we knew that it was only a matter of time that all the good will start to fall apart. Like they say, all good things must come to an end. It takes great pain and suffering to see this fall. Once we were playing more than 12 paintball events a year and the next, we became strangers. Emails were sent with no reply. Dinners were arranged with no turn up. Trainings were scheduled with no players. Things just change. Life commitments start to hit the team hard... we had plans to move to Division 1 in 2012 but it never materialized. Players were going back to school, some had bills to pay, some chose to focus on work, some never really knew what's happening, some were out of jobs and lastly, some ended up being in a team without team mates. It is sad to see how things actually turn out for everyone. Well... life goes on. The world doesn't stop spinning. The sun continues to rise. The heart still continues pumping. It will be a matter of time that things will get back on track again. Until this day, we are ready to revamp the team like how a few strangers first got together. Perhaps, it is easier keeping things simple and gets everybody back to basics.

31 Dec 2011 - Local based team, Natural Born Killers took part in the recent 1NPS (Northern Paintball Series) held in Kedah, Malaysia and clinched a 5th position finish against teams from the Northern territories. The Natural Born Killers was formed in 2010 and made their first appearance in the Novice Division of the Singapore Paintball Series 2011 Leg 2. The trip to Kedah which is about 6-7 hours drive from Singapore is a showcase of pure dedication for these boys where paintball goes beyond boundaries and distance.
