Paintball is one of the most popular extreme sports in the United States. Tournament paintball is similar to bowling leagues in that nearly every field has its own events. It can sometimes be hard for new teams to know what is happening and when. Follow these steps to find the paintball tournament that interests you.
1. Be prepared to drive a distance. Before you do, decide how far is too far. Depending on what state you live in, you could easily drive one or two hours to a paintball tournament.
2. Compile a list of local fields in your driving radius. Do this by checking the Internet and utilizing the paintball resource websites. Also consult paintball magazines and the phone book.
3. Contact each field and ask about their upcoming tournaments.
4. Making friends is also very important in paintball. Befriend local teams and ask them where and when they play.
5. Use paintball resource websites like the PB Nation and War Pig websites to find events.
