Paintslayers from all over the world are racing to take part in paintball’s biggest competition in May, in the face of the death of two people.
The Mayo Paintball Association (MPAA) will hold the event in Mayo this weekend, which will see the number of competitors grow from 50 to 250.
It is hoped the event will bring a buzz to the city, as it is seen as a safe and fun place to shoot.MPAA President Brian Phelan said he hopes the event brings in more money for local charities.
“I think it will be a great event and hopefully it’s going to bring in more business for the Mayo Paintballs Association,” Mr Phelant said.
“There’s going in the right direction, but we have a long way to go.”
We’re hoping for a strong turnout.
I think there’s a lot of work to do to really make it happen.
“Paintball has been around for over 20 years and has a long history of success.
It was invented in 1992 in the US and is played outdoors in arenas, but was introduced in a similar way to a paintball.
It involves players using paint balls, which are then dropped in the air and are then thrown into the air by a ball handler.
It has become popular in Australia, and in England, Canada and New Zealand.
The MPAA has also created an online competition called The Paintball Jungle, where anyone can enter.”
It’s not as big as the paintball jungle but there are plenty of tournaments in the area,” Mr Killeen said.
The event will be held at the Mayo Golf Course, which is owned by Mayo Golf Club.”
The Mayo Golf course is a fantastic facility and has always been a great facility for paintball,” Mr Dennison said.
