Back when I was 12 I went with ny neighbor for his birthday. Then a few years passed, and I found the nation.

12, my dad actually got me into it, all my best friends and our dads would do woods ball every sunday on my friends 100+ acre fields, basically an open map. After a few years of that I started learning about speedball, started when I was 14 until I was 17, took a 2-3 year break and now back at it for round 2 at 20 years old.

Nearly the same situation minus dads, and add a year (21).

It was 1990 and I was 14 years old. Semi-auto markers weren't even out yet and I bought the first one when it came out, a Tippman .68 Special that broke paint like a hammer. This sport has come a long way.

9 years old in 2007, I hated it at first but I didn't want to disappoint my brother and cousin, so I had to keep playing and after my first few times I was hooked forever!!
