I played from around 1998-2003, and just got back into the sport this april. College and money made me stop initially. Eventually sold all my gear so having to make the investment to get back in kept me away for so long. Very happy to be back, I'm having a blast!!
Played religiously from summer/fall 2002-fall of 2009. From 2002-2008 in particular I averaged about 45 weekends a year where I was playing ball. On Saturday's I was a fixture at the park. I took a break in late 09 and 3/4ths of 2010 to train for a half marathon and run some distance races and then started playing again in 2011. So roughly a year is the longest away for me.
Leaving the sponsored team/loosing the paint discount hurt and working in retail management (working weekends) pushed me out. It's been about 10-12 years for me... getting back in now (and just lost my job after 10 years there).
I quit around when I turned 16 due to money and just a ton of stuff going on in my life. I'm 23 now and I just started playing again about 2 months ago.

Walked away from my team in 2001. The game got too serious and I wasnt having fun. I was 27. Grew up, got married, had a couple kids. Now my brother in law is getting married. We will be playing this comming weekend for his bachelors party. Ive already got him a gun and equipment. He also played before. We have decided we are going to make it a once a month event. So about a 11 year break. I wonder what kind of looks I will get sporting a shoebox Shocker lol....
I caught the fever in 2003, after graduating high school. I played for about four years, but college has this tendency to drain any money you may have, and with PB being a somewhat expensive hobby, I had to drop it. I'm just now getting back in the game after a 5 year hiatus.
