Bringing paintball to the community!
Paintball Park was invited to
National University of Singapore (NUS) Sports Bazaar 2008 for a
paintball awareness outreach for its students and staff. The
annual Sports Bazaar is organized by the NUS Sports Club to
allow the NUS community to know more about paintball in
particular speedball. With support from the Paintball
Association Singapore paintball markers were used as static
display during the outreach. Swamps of people visited the
paintball booth to find out more about the game. With the help
of several members of the Red Fraction Team and the NUS
Paintball Interest Group, the outreach was a success with an
estimated 500 visitors.
