How To Set Up A Paintball Tournament

How cool would it be to set up a paintball tournament? Well, that really depends on how well you organize it. Paintball is an extreme sport that demands action; paintball players live for the exhilaration of a good paintball match. And if you don't have a proper format, paintball players will become bored very quickly…. trust me.

I have set up a good number of paintball tournaments in my day, and can quite confidently tell you that the overall experience is determined by the quality of organization.

Some games work well, others won't. We've done trial and error for many paintball events, and we don't mind at all telling you what will, and won't work.

I really wish someone would have done the same for me when I started organizing paintball tourneys.

Painball Supplies – What You Need!

Before you start your paintball tourney, there are a few things you'll need….

1- paintball pinnies (or jerseys, colored shirts, uniforms, etc…. basically anything that will separate players into teams)

2- a paintball field – does not necessarily have to be a paintball venue. If you know of a secluded wilderness area that won't impose on other people… go for it. If you have to play at a public paintball venue, phone ahead and tell the paintball field that you want to host your tournament. As long as you pay to use their field, they will be more than happy to have you.

3- Two flags – don't necessary have to be flags, could be anything that can easily be carried. Spoiler – it's for capture the flag.

4- a group of paintballers- which can be easily found at any paintball venue, but if not there, then gather a group of your friends.

Paintball Tournaments – The Blueprint

This is the official co2 paintball guru blueprint for our paintball events. Know that this blueprint is not set in stone, but it has been tried, tested and proven. So if you don't want to mess with a good thing, stick to this. Although feel free to be a little adventuresome if you want.

And if you absolutely feel the need to adjust it in anyway and create a paintball tournament that you're happy with, leave me a comment below to share with the rest of us.

Event 1 – Capture The Flag

Capture the flag is a great game that takes a lot of energy to play. Participants will need to invest all of their energy to this one, so make sure that you play this game relatively earlier in your tournament. Capture the flag is best when people are excited to play.
