For most of the last 15 years the route in paintball was to go to a rental day or two then if you wanted to play more regularly the only real option was to get onto a sup'air team and join into whatever series was running at the time. CPPS and it's ilk is a world away from the fun of playing in the woods as a rental customer and this jump is jarring for many people and puts a lot of people off. Back in the early 2000s many sites were too scared of moving customers away from paying £120 a case to paying £35 at a walk on. But back then sites were flooded with birthday parties, stag dos and hundreds of new players who kept the easy money rolling in. But the novelty of paintball as new thing died out and the bottom fell out of the rental market with a tiny fraction of players of what there once was. Sites are now learning there is smarter ways of keeping the customers they have, which is why there's a heck of a lot more scenario events and walk ons in the UK than there used to be. Nowadays if a new rental baller wants to play more they see many more options, which are a lot more appealing to the sensibilities of someone who went to a rental day in the first place. The resurgence of competitive woodsball is the natural progression for this new model. Of course there's the old farts coming back but I think this is an incredible opportunity to keep new players involved in our silly little game. I've gotta add Nick & Sally at Skirmish Sherwood Forest (Nottingham) to your list Pete. They've been doing great work in developing an end to end quality experience with rental, walk-on, sup'air (tournaments & training) and now woodland tournaments all available at a site that's very well run and looked after.
