Peak One Paintball hosts tourney at Copper today


COPPER MOUNTAIN – Peak One Paintball is hosting Summit County’s first paintball tournament today at Copper Mountain.The tournament is open to three-person teams and begins at 10 a.m. after a captain’s meeting at 9 a.m.

“We have teams rolling in from all over,” said event organizer and Peak One Paintball owner Jason Waite. “I’ve had people from Denver, Beaver Creek and Rifle all call to enter teams.”The tournament will follow a standard National Paintball Players League (NPPL) format where teams score points based on moving a flag from the center of the field to the opposing team’s end. Teams can also score points by eliminating opponents and by surviving. Teams will play a preliminary round with the top four teams advancing to a round-robin final. The team with the most points at the end of the finals wins.

The tournament is open to NPPL division 3 players only.”It’s basically for beginners,” Waite said. “It’s for people who don’t have more than a year’s experience in tournaments.”

The Copper Mountain paintball field is located next to the tennis courts between the East Village and the Village at Copper. Registration for the event will remain open until the captain’s meeting begins and costs $75 per team. Rental equipment will be available.
