    Hi all,
    Not too sure if I’m posting in the right place or not but here goes.
    I’m pretty new to paintballing but am really keen to start learning and u think the best way to learn is to meet with like minded people and get into it. I have most of my own gear but am struggling with the best way to really get into it as my local’ish grounds only has one ‘walk on’ day a month. I live in the East Midland( junction 28 of the M1) does anyone know of any clubs/teams that meet up for practice day or the such? Thanks in advance for any help.

    Go to Nottingham skirmish.

    http://www.skirmishpaintballnottingham.co.uk/

    They only run one walkon a month which is 'normal' practice for sites as walkons dont bring in the money normal punters do. There are a couple of teams who meet there including Sad paintball club members and a couple of site teams. Have a chat with some of them and see what comes out of it. Also speak to Nick or Sally who own the site.

    If your looking for woodsball tournaments Sad Tactical are looking for a couple more players to play in the Pro Tour series held at warped and NPF Birmingham this year.

    Thanks joe, I’ll definitely contact skirmish and Sheffield.
    Bawtry said they don’t do walk on days.

    Hi Jason,

    I would defiantly go to skirmish Notts if I was at junction 28 I was up there last month and the site is amazing, and as newish player myself, I was made instantly at home.

    Cat is an amazing Marshall, get talking to him if you get the chance, the guys a hero.

    If your looking to play CPPS, Mike Oldham is your man owner of Morning Wood, he may be looking for players you could always shoot him a message.
