Looking to get into tournement play (live in Charleston, SC)

As the title says I am looking to get into tournament play. I recently got back into the sport after a 7ish yr long hiatus... I have never played tournament-ball, but have a good amount of speedball experience.

I am willing to learn, practice, travel (would like to keep it as local as possible), and have a positive attitude towards the entire sport in general.

If you know of anyone looking for players in the Lowcountry please let me know.

If you are looking to play speedball locally, there are two options. Compass Paintball and Paintball Charleston. The former is open a select few saturdays a month. You would have to check their FB page to get in on it. Paintball Charleston runs speedball days every other week or so and has the larger more experienced crowd.

Take a look at these FB links to get all the info you need.

Yeah I've been playing at PB Charleston, they have only put up the Speedball field twice since the new year :/

I've been trying to get chummy with more and more people, dropping hints that I am trying to get into tournament play.

I was talking to the pro shop tech about it and he said something along the lines of "we try to do speedball tourneys, but hardly anyone signs up due to one team (I think GLK maybe) always destroying everyone else".

Well it makes it pretty hard to practice to get better when the field is only up every few weeks. I'll look into Compass for practice some.

You could come out to Mount Pleasant Paintball. They have speedball up almost every weekend. I will warn you it's an older set of bunkers but it's fun to play out there. Also, there are several teams out there that play and are always looking for players. Hope this helps.

I have heard that the Mt P field is normally younger kids/ rentals... Guess I was wrong.

I didn't realize Compass was doing so many tournaments (They have 5 posted in the next few months). I'm going out to the one this weekend to check it out. See how things are run...

My buddy is willing to start a 3 man team, we are now on the search for a committed 3rd

And PBC hasn't tried to hold a tourney in a long long time.

Come out to pbc next saturday. I am the captain of Boredom Prevails and we are looking to pick up another player for next season. We have a teammate going to college and are looking to pick up a new member.
