PostSubject: Paintball for the 2016 Olympics (Officially recognised petition)   Sun Aug 12, 2012 8:05 am

Like the title says, a petition has been set up in order to get the tournament aspect of the sport introduced at the 2016 Games.

The Olympic Commission has already acknowledged the petition and are willing to honor it provided a target number of signatures is reached.
Pass the link around to all your friends, paintballers or otherwise, post it to the off topic sections of other paintball forums and lets see if we can hit 1 million votes in 4 years. LINK

Ballers unite!

I'd imagine if it did get passed, it'd be speedball games.
I think Milsim would be a good idea too though.
Like 2 teams in a CQB type warehouse or something like that?

You know, even though I'm a woodsball player, I'd love for see Speedball get recognized. Since it's played on a level field and the games are fairly fast paced it would fit in well with the schedule to get all the teams played and moved through etc.

Also, I should imagine that we don't need the full million to get the petition taken seriously but hell, how bloody awesome would it be if we succeeded in reaching that target from hitting every paintball forum on the interwebz?

Signed. Some people claim paintball isn't a sport due to its absence in the Olympics. If this goes through, I will win many arguments...

I know we would all love to see a milslim/woodsball game happen but it simply won't.
