Entry fee reduction for SPL, Division 1 and Division 2:

SPL - €6250 + Vat per year
Division 1 - €5500 + Vat per year
Division 2 - €1000 + Vat per event
New Division 3

Entry Price - €750 + Vat.
Alongside the new Division 3, we will also be running a standard 5Man Division as in previous years. This division is perfect for new or less experienced teams looking to sample an International Paintball Event!! No event points or series rankings within this division.
Entry Price - €550 + Vat.
Training Fields available at all Events!
We will now be offering training session slots on the Thursday before an Event. Hour long sessions will be available to all teams from 12pm at the cost of €400 per hour or €200 per team if the slot is shared. Slots must be booked in advance through Head Office (email@example.com
