Patrick Tan & Thailand Paintball Tournament 2010

Patrick Tan recently played and finished third in the Thailand Paintball Tournament 2010 held in Bangkok. Normally I don't blog about non-Malaysia paintball events, but since we have our local guys compete and won there, this definitely deserves some headline.

(VPB) Tell us briefly about yourself, paintball experience and Pro Paintball
(PT) Hi Caran, I own and manage Pro Paintball here in Malaysia and Thailand. I started playing paintball as a leisure activity and eventually got hooked with the intensity of the game. I started playing in division 3 in the MY-NPL series and eventually merged with the older generation Demonz team to form what is today Demonz Red. Back then there was only one pro shop in Malaysia and choices were limited. Together with Andrew, we formed Werdna Hol Sportz. As time passed by, we parted ways and I went on to form what is Pro Paintball today. Seeing a emerging market in Thailand, I opened a Pro Paintball Thailand as well.

(VPB) You played with Chia Industries. Who are they and what do they do?
(PT) Chia Industries was a rag tag team made up of a couple of Malaysian guys namely Poison Doc (whose surname is Chia and plays for Team Simpsons), Hashidee Murshim (CMX), Rahiza Zahidi (CMX), Ben and Myself (Demonz Red). I had obvious interest in the league in Thailand and these guys decided to have a bit of holiday and paintball. Coming in third was seriously unexpected as we had never played together as a team before. Plus Thai teams put up a really good game.

(VPB) What are the gears you used - from top to bottom.
(PT) We use JT products on the soft goods and VL Loaders, we are also sponsored by Skirmish with Planet Eclipse markers.

(VPB) How do you rate the level of Thai paintball? Since you had the chance to play with alot of them.
(PT) We played in Division 1 in the Thai league but mind you their level of play between division 1 and 2 are pretty close. I maintain a very high level of respect for these guys as unlike us they don't shoot a lot of paint. They play very aggressive and everyone in their teams can basically play any position (no fix back/snake) which makes it difficult to understand and read their games. Team Infernal recently took champion in ISSC here in Malaysia and they only shot 15 boxes!! Demonz Red in comparison coming in 3rd shot 32 boxes!! That I guess pretty much speaks for itself.

(VPB) Something regarding PALS, i know you're involved in PALS Thai as well. How did this came about? Some people out there might not know this yet.
(PT) My involvement with their local league has eventually led us to discussion on hosting an international tournament, which was Pattaya International Paintball Championship last year. Joining up with the prestigious PAL series was a necessity to put in place a infrastructure, format and system which players from all over Asia can enjoy. That eventually led to my involvement as the PAL series working partner representing Thailand.

(PT) I would like to take this opportunity to also market for the Thai National Paintball League, we welcome players from Malaysia to participate. For more inquiries please contact me directly at :

Thanks Caran!!

(VPB) Thanks Pat.
