For a long time, there has been a call for a credible competitive woodland series in the UK. The UWL has taken the United States by storm with pro players, old timers, ex-pro's, scenario teams and lots of guys who had given up the game all coming back into the woods and tearing it up in a relaxed but competitive environment.
Now its time for the UWL to hit the UK - and how!
A 7 leg series split between the North and the South of England, the biggest prize fund in British Paintball, a capped number of 50 teams, electronic flags, plasma screens, individual player rankings and team rankings all updated on a smartphone App so you can check out your listings from the comfort of the pub and all covered on Sky TV via The Paintball Show. Its woodland paintball..........but for the 21st Century......Shoreline style!
Capped at 50 teams
The UWL UK will have 7 legs with three in the North at YPC and three in the South at Campaign Paintball. The final leg, the UWL UK Super Cup will take place on the Saturday of the UKPSF Big Game: Staargate.
Slots are strictly limited to 25 in the North, 25 in the South and 50 at the UWL Super Cup. All slots are sold on a first come first served basis and can be reserved for £100 per event from http://www.shorelinewebstore.com
Biggest Prize in British Paintball
Shoreline don't mess about. The UWL UK Champions will be flown out to the USA to take part in the UWL 5-man at the PSP World Cup in Florida. All entry fees to the event and EVEN PAINT will be covered. The Champions will also receive a massive UWL Winners Trophy which will be presented at the black tie UK Paintball Awards event.
Each UWL UK leg winner will also receive a trophy and Champagne to mark their achievement.
Player and Team rankings
The Champions will be determined by the UWL ranking system. The top four results for a team will be taken to determine their final ranking position with the winners being crowned UWL UK Champions and walking away with the top prize. After each event, we will release the team rankings tables on the Shoreline website UWL Ranking page and App.
Each individual player will also receive ranking points so you can track your own personal performance over the course of the season.
UWL in the Shoreline App
The shortly to be released Shoreline App for all smartphones and tablets (iOS, Android, Windows, HTML5) will have its own UWL section where player and team rankings will be listed so you can check out how you and your mates are doing compared to other players from all over the UK from the comfort of the pub. There will also be UWL pics, Videos, schedules etc all right there in the palm of your hand.

No matter if you are a current tournament player, someone who has given up the game, a current scenario team, an ex-woodsball team......if you fancy the idea of getting back into the woods for some proper gunfighting....you need to take a good look at the UWL UK - there has been nothing like this in the UK for years and who knows................you could even end up on that plane over to the USA next year as UWL UK Champions!
