Why Play Tournament Paintball?
Great exercise for the body andmind
It’s a great way to relieve stress
Get to hang out with your friends
Allows you to escape to somewhere                else
You get to shoot at each other
While working on teamwork
Sounds fun right?Why else should you play?
New friendships are formed
New rivalries are created         VS
We play for the competition
Not for the money
That’s why paintball is different
The glory is what we play for
The respect from other teams
The feeling of being part of a team
Your team becoming your family on            the field
And off…
The feel of winning with your family
Why play Tournament paintball?
for that nervous feeling on the start                box
The eternity it feels like before the           horn blows
When the horn blows only the game            matters
Take all that’sbothering you andjust leave it on the        field
You become part of a new community
Why should you play paintball?           How is it different?
Statistically safer than other sports
Enables strategic thinking
travel around to different tournaments
Play others from around the world
Unique playing field
The equipment is different from other              sports
Why do I play Paintball?
Because this is where I love being
Because I love hanging out with my               team
Because win or lose we have each         other’s backs
Convinced yet?    No?
Here are some paintball facts
Even though many people don’t know  about paintball, its actually played             worldwide
It’s becoming increasingly popular with                colleges
The NCPA nationals were televised
There are many leagues around the             world
Tournament Paintball is a growing            sportWe hope one day is as big as oneof the main stream sports
Perhaps one day in a major sporting              venue
How can you get into paintball?
Locate a field near you!
Convinced yet?
Grab your friends and get out and play

  49. 49. Paintball is a way of life to most of usHere is a quote from a paintball legend Matty Marshall “This isn’t a game; it’s a fight. Knuckles bare, fists clenched white, all weapons approved, and the bastards of the world are waiting in the shadows with broken bottles and big grins. And this fight is fought everyday. On long highways, dirty couches and floors, rock hard dirt fields and shaking planes. In foreign lands, lost, hated, broke. It’s the battle to prove to the world that your small part, your pinprick slice of existence, matters. That even if the sun explodes tomorrow and scatters us screaming into the void, we go smiling because we had faith in ourselves, faith to gather a tribe and try to make our own reality. Nobody gives you anything until you make them understand. That’s why we formed this team, to make people understand.”
