Loughborough Students Union Paintballing Society were newly formed in September 2012 by Ben Crossley and Pete Woodward. The aim of the society is to bring the sport of paintball to the University in order to allow the students cheap days out, to get more people into paintball and also get some experience of Supair competitions. They plan to have two or three teams enter into the Student Cup, held 6th April at the National Paintball Centre, Penkridge UK, as well as one or two teams entering into a lower division of CPPS (Central Premier Paintball Series) UK. Ben Crossley and Lydia Conroy (Celtic Banshees) formed a team to enter the first Student Cup last year and managed to win the Cup for Loughborough. We also encourage people to join in woodsball events and we plan to go along to Paintfest at the National Paintball Fields in Birmingham in July 2013.
The Paintball Society are running a charity event at 22 SAS Paintball, Markfield for University students, in aid of Help for Hero’s. They are also trying to raise money prior to the event on justgiving as well… http://www.justgiving.com/lufbrapaintballing/ if they can hit £200 before the ticket sales are taken into account the committee are having a vs game. 6 vs 74. That sounds like carnage!!
