It's hard to believe that paintball has gone almost 30 years without having an official Hall of Fame that recognizes that greatest players and industry members that have helped made the game what it is today, and that's why we're doing something about it.
At the DC Challenge the league will be announcing the first members that are being inducted into the NPPL Hall of Fame, complete with a recognition ceremony. The first class will be made up of the pioneers that started the game of paintball and made the necessary big risks to help propel it to bigger and better heights.
All inducted players and industry members will be selected by an elite panel of paintball's current best and brightest. In the future, fans will also be able to participate in the voting and selection process.
The official first class of the NPPL Hall of Fame will be announced right here in our DC Challenge forum as well as through our Facebook during the weekend of the event.
WHO DO YOU THINK SHOULD MAKE IT IN THE HALL OF FAME FIRST? Post your selections below.
Haha, don't all those names mentioned so far sound a little too recent to you? What about the guys that played in the first ever game of paintball, or legendary players like Bob Long and Adam Gardner, or captains of the industry like John Gregory (JT USA) and Dennis Tippmann?
