40ish age group

Is there anyone in mid 30s and older playing paintball? There are times I want to play again, but then I remember last time I played it was just kids.

It is funny, when I started in 1992 everyone playing was a lot older then me.
Now that I'm around the age they were it changed to being really young people.

I can vouch for this man... He is something else once he step on the field.

That actually makes me feel good. I turned 39 a couple months ago. I went into a panic attack like my life was over the day I turned 40.

The problem isn't on the field it is off. Finding friends that want to go, have the time to go, and the money to go is hard. So I have to go alone. It is finding people to talk to between games that I worry about.

I'm 40, still playing tournaments and doing well. I think the older we get, the smarter we are than the younger guys on the field. As long as it is still fun, I'll keep playing for years to come.

Peace-
I play with and against this team all the time.

As for myself, I am 36 & play with a buddy who is 35, and play on a team where we are the 2nd & 3rd youngest of the bunch! There are many players in our age range out there playing all the time. We see people our age & older almost every time we go out there, you just have to get out there to see them.

I hope all of the responses that you have received motivate you to get back out there & play soon...it's still a blast!

I just hit fitty-four.

My regret is waiting until my late forties to jump into tournament play on the speedball field.

The adrenaline rush is what gets it for me. It jacks me up! Besides....I'm too old for the recreational narcotics abuse of the '70's.
