Track the Team Sign-Ups
Want to know who you’re competing against? Over 80 teams from around the world have signed up for the April 3 – 5 event on the famous beach. To view the teams registered so far, click here and select “Huntington Beach”. This season opener will be capped off at 130 teams, so teams will need to register as soon as possible to secure a spot in this highly anticipated event!

We will be selling all major paintball brands at the tournament. All Paintballs will be kept in a climate controlled environment. Paintballs will be sold at the event at a price between $35.00 and $55.00 depending on brand of balls. If your team has a paintball sponsorship the League will work with sponsored team and sponsor to ensure you get your deal at the event.

We are implementing a new area in the player paddocks where you can pick up your paintballs on a case by case basis. This system in combination with the new schedule should make it easier to keep your paintballs fresh and available.

Upon on-line registration, the league will contact you to find out what brand your team will use and how many cases of Paintballs your team will require for the preliminary games.

National Paintball Scene: No More?

These are just some rumors I heard but if they turn out to be right then national tournaments in paintball could be no more.

The first rumor is that PSP could possibly be going under after MAO, as MAO could be the last PSP event. My source told me that PSP has a $300,000 debt and has not been able to pay it. PSP was hoping, since NPPL went bankrupt, that the Phoenix open and MAO would bring in more teams and help pay off their debt but the Phoenix open only brought in the average amount of teams and MAO will probably do the same.

The second rumor is that USPL Surf City Open in Huntington Beach may not happen either because not that many divisional teams have registered and paid. The fact that the event is held on the beach makes renting the venue expensive and with not enough teams, USPL can’t pay for it, so….
