After much thought and discussion with other sites and some of the major paintball companies I propose to run a small 8 team limited paint woodland tournament event on Sunday the 25th September 2011 at Warren Wood Paintball (site post code SG13 8NH).
The cost will be £250.00 per team.
Each team will field 7 players although the numbers in a team may exceed this.
So what do you get for your £250.00?
Each team will get 6 boxes of paintballs with which to play a round robin of 7 games.
Air will be supplied at 3000psi fills.
Each player will receive free tea and coffee all day
Each player will receive a free BBQ lunch.
Max. RoF 280fps
Ramping will be allowed – max 15bps.
For this event the top three teams will then go into a small round robin of games to find the eventual winner, second and third placed team. Each of the three top teams will receive a further box of paintballs each for this “second round”
There will be a trophy for the winning team.
Should the event prove popular it will be rolled out into 2012 and hopefully there will be 4 different venues.
The first event will be a “self seeding| round”. Then the second round will consist of the top 8 teams in division 1, the next 8 in division 2 etc etc.
The whole point of going back to “paintball tournament roots” is to stop the spray and pray mentality, get people to PLAY paintball but above all let players know what the playing cost is and to make it as cheap as possible.
Tournaments were run like this years ago and there were hundreds of teams playing this style of “reasonable cost paintball” which is what we need in today’s economic climate. It will allow players who have kids to bring them into this fantastic sport without crippling them financially and brings in youngsters that will keep paintball going for years.
If you are interested in entering a team the game fee MUST be with me by Sunday 11th Sept.
I hope that you will find this an interesting idea and that come the 11th Sept all team places are filled.
