SkateSG is giving a unique twist to the traditional ‘Game of Skate’ by blending it with live music performances, art exhibitions and more in a one-day event happening on-ground and online on 30 January 2021.

A culmination of a national skate campaign that started in October 2020, Somerset Battle Grounds will be the Final Battle for 4 Women’s and 4 Men’s skateboarding finalists as they aim to be the best flat-ground skateboarders that Singapore has to offer and walk away with a total prize purse amounting up to SG$15,000.
