The Start of TeleTrip

TeleTrip started as a dream to teleport gamers outside of Singapore to have a different gaming experience in 2018 by Pauline and Ruth of SOOS OIO LLP

The fun of gaming with friends in person is hardly experienced as the comfort of gaming at home increases. The desire to gather gamers to come together physically to game socially was the beginning of TeleTrip. In 2018, there was no gaming arena in Singapore. The idea of making a trip out of Singapore to game in gaming arenas excited us. We started putting together the first ever TeleTrip to KL, Malaysia to play DOTA 2 for 3D2N in Sept 2018. We had our first batch of 10 TeleTrippers who went to KL Pantheon. We only had a simple goodie bag for each participants and simple prizes of customised winner tags. 

TeleTrip evolved into a full day offline gaming event as going overseas is not practical if we want more gamers to join us. We called this TeleTrip Express. Campuses eventually opened up for us where gamers bring their own devices, mobiles or notebooks, and we named this TeleTrip Campus. In 2020, we could not meet in person due to covid and we decided to play online, focusing on TeleMatch, which is a segment within TeleTrip

TeleTrip continues to run and grow because of the support of TeleTrippers. On top of that, we are also very thankful and appreciative of each organization and company who has come alongside to make TeleTrip better and more exciting. Below are the list of organisations and companies whom we want to thank sincerely for going on this crazy journey with us, even if it is for a season. 

Special Thanks To...
