Yeah, the idea is to attract more players. I am pretty sure a lot of old guys are turned off by the speed of the players and game. same deal with fat guys. I love competing with the skinny kids, but again, trying to pull in more players.
If there are some woodsball buddies out there who know they will be playing against other old or fat guys, and not the killer kids, maybe they would come. I mean, PSP ran a pump division for a few events, I think. Why not give it a try?
being fat or old really does not have anything to do with it. if your not that good play d4/d5. just cuz your big also does not mean your slow. example hiloti nagata from the ravens is lighting and he is 350 pounds. if you old or big just play back and find some guys or girls that are quick to even the team out
