There are always new teams that start up, but with new teams there is a problem lacking commitment turning up to training and not being able to make events.
Teams that are established have a general understanding to what they expect from their player base. You will learn about running a team and how a team is run.
Running a team is a massive undertaking, you will lose time and money BUT the rewards can be fantastic
BZ have a team and i believe they are always keen help you become a better player. I think they still train in Dishforth, you'll most likely need a car to get there unless if you can find or arrange someone to give you a lift.
Depends if you've got contacts within the sport could set one up if you wer dedicated and really wat to do it! you could start your own but like the guys said below it is easier to join one as all the stuff is already in place.... its easier for lazy people like me!!
If you have 5 friend s that are well into paintball and want to go on the most crazy adventure ever then, start a team and watch the fireworks!! You'll learn together, lose together and win together.. It's hard at first but once you have you're foot on the ladder then it starts to fall together quite quickly and you'll never get the experience joining an established team that you would get starting your own.. Plus 5 friends playing for each other will always fight harder than playing with 4 randoms..
It's easy to jump on a team and play but hard to start at the beginning, however it's much more rewarding to know you did it all off your own back than riding on the back of others!!
