I was about 15 or 16. after years of wanting to play, my buddy invited us all out.

All my friends complained about how tired they were at the end. I was the only one who was dying to return the next day.

I started playing in 2002. I believe I was 14 at the time. I went out with a bunch of buddies from school and instantly got hooked! I started off with rentals the first couple of times, tipmanns, PMI, and eventually was able to afford my first marker. Spyder Esprit. Fine marker I must say. Now 10 years later I'm still loving the game! I even got my younger brother into the sport

I want to say the first time I played was '92. I would have been ~13 years old... I played for a few years, took about 15 years off, and started back at it in January.

Played for then first time when I was 13 with my best friend. Wasn't that big of a deal at the time and my parents thought I would quit because of the pain. 9 years later and I'm still playing and glad I did because I've met so many people that I otherwise wouldn't have.
