Thumbs up Wooldsball World Cup May 31 & June 1


Hardcore Tournament Woodsball got its launch in the middle 80's and it culminated with the 1st World Cup being held at the Paintball Sports NY fields in 1990. Paintball Sports NY is proud to offer the original game format with many of the original Master Blaster judges on May 31 June 1, 2014. The game fields were considered to be among the best woodsball fields in the world. The Master Blaster, developers of radio-zone judging, were the premier judges of that era.

But, there's more! This is a Bring Your Own Paint event, with great prize packages, including a $10,000 first place cash prize for the winners of the pro division, and $5,000 cash for the pro runners up. The Semipro/Amateur division will give to the top four teams total of $7,500 worth of prizes in the form of redeemable gift certificates from our major sponsors, and the Amateur/Novice winning teams will split a similar $2,500 prize package.

The 10 man pro team entry fee is just $1,800, the 7 man Semipro/Amateur team entry is $1,000, and the 5 man Amateur/Novice team entry is just $500.

Space is limited. Pros are limited to 20 teams, Semipro/Amateur to 24 teams, and Amateur/Novice teams also limited to 24 teams. So, don't be left out. Big time woodsball tournaments are back. Be part of the revolution.

An Old School Team

John, We received correspondence from a number of players in the United States, England and Canada with essentially the same message: My team hasn't played in years, but some of us want to play in this tournament. Please let us know if a team needs players. If there is enough interest, we can set aside one pro slot for these old school players. Let's use this thread to see if there is sufficient interest.

John- I'm certain I haven't played at as many fields as you, but I have been playing since '89 and have played all over the northeast and mid-Atlantic. The fields at PSI are second to none in my experience, and, quite honestly, rekindled my waning interest in paintball a number of years ago. These fields are contemporary to the state of the sport and at the same time reminiscent of the curated woodsball fields of the early 90's. I hope that makes sense.

I'm hoping my teammates will make a showing to defend our 2011 title. If not, I might be looking for a team, too.

I truly hope to see you there.

Just saw on FB that Valken is putting in a hand picked player team for the pro 10 man.

*But as I understand it not with pro-players but guys like us.

Thank you, I appreciate the offer, and I may have the opportunity to be an alternate on one of my sponsored teams but it's tough for me to commit at this point.

I am hoping to attend with a booth, and if that happens it's not going to leave me a lot of spare time to play.

Teams Thus Far

As stated Valken is putting in a pro team, so is KEE and Steve from GI Sportz. The Reservoir Dogs have given the same message to Kevin Donaldson and Bea Youngs told me that Destiny is coming. Our friends from the Albany area, Upstate Hate will field a pro team, and Chris Masi told me that Hi Velocity will play pro as well. There are a number more who have shown a great interest, but have not yet committed to attend in the Pro division. There are several individuals and small squads of teams, both in the UK and here who played pro at the highest levels in the early and mid 90's who said they were coming. We said that we would put together a team form that group.

There are many more who are looking to play in the Amateur and Novice Divisions, and I should have a definitive list there by the beginning of May.

As stated, we will close the books at 10 Pros, so anyone looking to attend, secure your spot now to play for the $15,000 cash prize package. In all cases, entry fee must be paid by May 10th.

Soooooo painful to see this happening and not be able to play it. It's exciting nonetheless, though!
Keeping fingers crossed for the next one!

Interesting user name with a very interesting post. This could be one of those posts that people in later years search for when researching paintball history. Or not. Time will tell.

While a webcast is likely out of the question, it would be really awesome if someone could grab some sideline footage for this event and upload it later. I still go back and watch the original ESPN ones every now and then.

The poster is Jerry Braun the Co owner of Paintball Sports Inc. Some people also refer to him as the guy that started the World Cup. He,s also the guy who started Paintball Sports Magazine and I believe a paintball manufacturing company. As well as assisting the team capt,s in forming the NPPL, oh and that new upstart league PSP (Paintball Sports Promotions) that was him when the NPPL started to stray.

Learn ya history kids.

I talked to Chris Masi the other owner of PSI and was told that he had just talked to the Gardners and they put their money where their mouth is and paid in full and no excuses.



Beeeeeeeeeeeeeeeep Brain lock up on the NYSTW RT87..................
BWAHHAAAAA World spinning ...
But what year is it.......
Ahhhhhhh .....


Holy crap .......
WHooooooo......
THE ALL A,s ??????

Thats right the All Americans .
Holy snikies .......

Still taken back a bit but cool none the less. About the last team I would have thought of.

So yup All A,s are in.

Thanks for that, but I realize who Mr. Braun is. Thus, the comment about the "interesting name" and watching him on ESPN.

For anybody else, here's an older summary:
http://paintball.com/story.php?aid=759

ESPN's coverage of one of the World Cup's that Jerry is speaking about. Schultz and Postorivo are also there. Dale Price, of the Paraplegic Turtles, has quite a few classic vids for people to comb through on his channel.

Paintball News Rules
  1. No Upping threads. If you have something to say, please do, but don't post in the thread just to take it to the top of the forum.
  2. Do not post "1st post", "1st", "First post" or anything similar (or with any other number) at any point in a thread, even if you post a comment too. It is really annoying and it will result in a ban.
  3. If you don't like something, say why instead of just calling it ugly, lame, gay or any other name. If it is old, simply post a link or report the post with a link to the older News thread.
  4. Please don't post links for places to buy items. That encourages stores, sponsored players and other people to do it and spam the site.
If you have questions, please post them in the Talk to Mods/Admins forum.
