The GRAND SLAM SERIES of 2005 will be NPPL modified rules the first weekend, followed by XBALL modified the next date. The rules have been carefully constructed by Giovanni D’Egidio who when asked to comment stated, “Yes, the GRAND SLAM TOURNAMENT SERIES is a brand new venture and a brand new avenue for the paintball industry and the paintball community. The rules are modified. I’ve spoken to field owners across the country; from the Pacific to the Atlantic. XBALL can be a BIGGER SPORT, -if affordable to the masses! Let the Professional Athletes play how they play, but let the real paintballers, play at the GRAND SLAM SERIES of 2005! This series will once and for all decide who is the best of both worlds!”
