Surrey, BC Area Speedball team

Hey guys,

So I'm just wondering if anyone is either wanting to start a team, or looking for players to form a speedball team...or just people to play speedball with.

I'm from south surrey, bc, and am 16.

I dont really care what age you are, i just want to play...

I'm kinda new to speedball, but I play woodsball, and on speedball-like fields..although i have played on speedball fields a few times.

I have a geo 2 marker set up too.

thanks a lot!

Whatever you do, dont hang with Jimmy on the Woodsball field. Killbox always lights him up

I used to play TPG for over ten years as it was closest to me. I now play at Panther. I think its a superior field overall and much bigger. If you're a newer player I think you'd enjoy TPG scenarios and their weekend games. From what I recall they cater more to the newb crowd these days.

All fields have their pro and cons and being that we are still in winter, a bit muddy at the moment in some areas.

If you are new to speedball, it can be difficult to find a team as many of the newer ones are just groups of friends. I would suggest finding out when a practice day is being held and just showing up. Many of the teams that attend will not really want you to join in with them as they have the set number of players and you may find yourself watching more than playing. Talk to newer players and introduce yourself so that you can exchange contact info etc and maybe ask the field staff for a break on admission as you will not be sure if you will be playing a lot of games.

there are many options available to you;

panther paintball
tswassen paintball games
ambush paintball
sniperz paintball

these r the 4 main speedball centres for the lower mainland. if i was young, full of energy and thought that speedball was going 2b a big part of my future, i'd avoid making the same mistake hundreds of enthusiasts just like yourself have done; avoid taking the 1st opportunity that comes along.

so if you go to field a.) you'll b sure 2 find speedballers willing 2 take u on. and although it may seem inviting, it could turnout 2b the worst paintball decision of your life. so my recommendation? easy; try all 4 fields. really. make a mission out of it - check out each one of the four scenes and make a really informed choice once you've experienced them all. i can tell u from 1st hand experience after having played many many tournaments at each and every1 of these fields that the atmosphere and the home team makeup is very different from 1 to the next.

panther has history, and lots of it. i rmemeber playing tournies there b4 ne1 else even knew what speedball tournies were. jimmy can set u up with a team and you will learn lots fast. there will b a BCPA tourny there august 7th - go check it out.

tswassen has some of the top talent as thunder (one of the north west's top teams) and gridlock (1st bcpa last event in open) call this place home. many island teams scrim there as well. easy going friendly attitude. hunt down dana and pester him with questions. tell him tom sent you.

ambush also has a good program - the ambush army. they are a speedball mecca during the non monsoon season. nic has tons of talent and lots of great teams have come out of there. central, easy to find, friendly peeps.

sniperz in chilliwack has bc's top program if team numbers mean anything, they have like 8 teams out of there with owen and kevin being the guys to talk to. super friendly, lotsa laughs, and GREAT teams with last years top bcpa team the predators and last events top rookie. this, in my opinion is the current leader field in new team and player development.

so there you go, enuf 2 digest 4 awhile. good luck and happy hunting!

We @ ambush will be doing what we can in the following weeks to help start a few new rookie teams. There are a ton of people playing these days, we just want to help players come together. Check our facebook page in the following weeks for more info.

as far as speedball or any paintball for that matter in the gvrd, these days, you really cant go wrong. Good people at any facility.
