Hi all, Something that has been on my mind for sometime is how has paintball changed over the last 10 years, where is is now and how can we make it even better? I've played from around 2004 all the way until 2011 when I stopped and that includes being a paintball site owner for an iconic woods-ball site between 2007 - 2010. Paintball Interest Here's how interest in paintball as changed according to Google since 2004 - not great eh? So what's changed? Back in 2004 paintball was new and exciting, naturally it's going to get interest but it's almost filtered out completely! From all the sites here in Scotland, many of them have closed down or changed hands. They used to be a model where people had their sole income, but it doesn't look like that anymore. We know the economy crashed in 2008. But that didn't heavily impact the paintball site revenues from my perspective at the time, yes it was tough but paintball was still something people really wanted to do as a sport or hobby or as a rental player. Has tournament put people off and made it seem less accessible? Or have scenario / woodland players and sites made some bad decisions in how paintball is viewed in the UK? Keen to hear everyone's views on this and how can paintball get it's self back on the road or has its time simply past for the majority of the public?
