The activities of these games are held in countries (Thailand, Malaysia, Philippines, Brunei and Indonesia) where UPS operates in. We strongly support the Singapore Slingers in their participation in the regional sporting experience. I am confident that the team comprising Singapore’s very own homegrown heroes will do the country proud.”
