SINGAPORE STINGERS (formerly SINGAPORE EXPAT Q’S)
The Singapore Stingers have been a force to be reckoned with since APC 2014 Manila when they secured a comfortable 3rd place win. In 2018, again in Manila and for the first time, they managed to beat old rivals Bangkok Heat and win the second-place silver medal just behind Jakarta All Stars! In 2019, after leading the event on both days, they lost out on the champion title in the last set by a single point/rack, again to their main rival and home team that year, Jakarta!
In 2022, the Singapore Stingers are proud to officially announce their partnership with the prestigious Ronnie O’Sullivan Snooker Academy in their campaign to become champions of APC. The Ronnie O’Sullivan Snooker Academy venue in Singapore is the first of its kind globally and one of many more to come planned in the future. R°SSA Singapore boasts 15 brand-new Rasson pool tables with Simonis cloth, as well as many snooker tables. It is considered by many as the most well designed and high-tech pool/snooker club on the planet. https://www.rossa147.com/
After a forced 2-year hiatus due to covid, the Singapore Stingers are back on the march again for this 2022 season which sees APC’s 10 Year Anniversary in Bangkok. Stingers feel they are in serious contention for this next APC Champions trophy.
Since 2013/14 the Singapore Stingers have been running two selection events for determining the 12 sponsored players (plus additional reserves and organisers) to attend APC each year. Starting around December or January each season the Stingers have a League system and a Tournament series running through to the event. Top players from each system will qualify for a sponsored placing at APC. If you are a foreigner on an EP or PR living in Singapore and want more information then please contact us (details below).
At APC 2015 in Jakarta and APC 2016 in Saigon the Singapore Stingers performed strongly and finished in 3rd position both years. The Singapore Stingers next challenge was at APC 2017 Bangkok where they finished 4th place due to the increased competitiveness of the overall competition. They did, however, manage to get one player into the APC Super Singles semi–finals for the first time (Capt. John Dangerfield).
At APC 2018 Manila and APC 2019 Jakarta the Singapore Stingers were very well prepared and finished in 2nd position with the silver medal on both occasions, their highest rankings since entering the APC competition. Very strong performances with a view to taking the title in 2019! Capt. John Dangerfield and Benny Gustafsson were the super singles players for 2019. Both players put in a very strong performance in reaching the semi-finals but were finally positioned 3rd and 4th respectively. Capt. John was also super-singles rep. in the 2018 event, making a hattrick of appearances in consecutive years as one of the team’s top players.
Having had multiple years with prestigious sponsors such as AUDI, the Singapore Stingers are proud to welcome R°SSA as a partner for 2022, and hopefully future events. Please see contact below for other sponsorship enquiries.
