The second leg of the annual Northern Paintball Series was held at Taman Rekreasi Sultan Abdul Aziz (Polo Ground) over a weekend recently. The sport has a huge local following. The reason why it was held in Ipoh was to cash in on the on-going Visit Perak Year 2012. The series was organised and sponsored by TuneTalk Mobile Prepaid. Ipoh City Council provided some logistics support.
Thirty three teams participated in the two-day competition under Division 3 and Division 4. The top five teams are eligible for selection to compete at the international paintball championship in Langkawi in November. They get to compete with foreign teams from countries such as Iran, France, United States, Thailand and Japan.
Tune Talk Votolocos and Hittballerz 2 tied for first place in Division 3. The Division 4 title was won by Tune Talk Lost Boyz who defeated a determined Jezzeballes 59’ers. The third leg of the series will be held in Penang in May.
