A best friend of Charles Gainses participating that day, Robert F.Guernsey, the namesake of (Ball Gurnsey) the character you clicked on to get here, was largely responsible for the success of "The National Survival Game Corporation" better know simply as NSG. At one point there were over 600 NSG Paintball Fields around the world, but mostly in the U.S., and Great Britain. There are thousands of Paintball facilities around the world today, including a new stadium specifically designed for the sport in 2005.
There are large tournaments held annually in many countries that attract upwards of 250 teams from all over the world to compete for hundreds of thousands of dollars worth of cash and prizes. The largest Canadian tournament that I know of is Skyball…an indoor Paintball Extravaganza held in the famous retractable roofed SkyDome in Toronto.
Through several leaders and organizations like Jessica Sparks (Jessica Splatt in my world) of the International Paintball Players Association (I.P.P.A) many important improvements where made to safety gear and playing rules as a way of self- regulating the sport! It was not easy to keep up with the rapidly advancing marker technology capable today of discharging 20 plus Paintballs per second!
