Like I don't know man. Like check out their websites, like, maybe?

Both are two differently formatted paintball tournaments. They have their own set of paintball bunkers, field dimensions, rules, and team sizes. Both tournaments are open to the public. They both have a "Pro" division however I'm pretty sure any team/player can play in any qualified division or higher; ie a team/player that qualifies for D4 can play Pro but a qualified Pro team can not play down. Of course each has their own specific rules about player qualifications.

"Sixteen Professional Teams have formed the National Professional Paintball League (NPPL). The player-owned league is dedicated to growing the sport of paintball at all levels of the game. For more information email"

Basically they are the two biggest tournamentsdifferent in the US. Nppl is usually 7 man and players shoot in the mode of semi-auto capped at I believe 15 BPS. In the PSP player shoot in the mode of PSP Ramping which is capped I believe at 12.5 BPS. PSP also consistsof 5 players. Thats just the basics of things.
