Houston Paintball has so much to offer new and experienced players. With our city of Houston being the 4th largest city in the country, the diversity we have offers such a huge selection when it comes to the paintball fields, Paintball players and the paintball community that exists here.
Pro Edge Paintball is owned and managed by native Houstonians. Our paintball store and staff have worked in the Houston paintball community for over 15 years now and have built a positive name with the players and local paintball facilities.
One way Pro Edge has become such a huge part of the Houston Paintball community is through the creation of the Houston Paintball Club and the Houston Paintball League. As the community changes over time, Pro Edge has created events to help bring the local players together.
Houston Paintball Club
The Houston Paintball Club is a club that is free to join and built to bring Houston paintball players together. The club events offer new and experienced players a local event to plan for and to meet new friends while out doing something they enjoy. The Club was formed in 2018 by us at Pro Edge. The local fields were seeing a down turn in regular players and in the walk on player group sizes. We felt this was because the players didn’t have a specific date to plan for and it was more of a, just show up and hope there are players at the field.
The Houston Paintball Club helps give players a specific date to plan their day of paintball with friends and a safe environment to bring new players out. At the club event days we make sure we design games that won’t encourage players to shoot each other up close but more to be competitive while keeping in mind we want to grow the Houston paintball community.
Our club events travel to different fields located in different parts of Houston allowing different players from all areas to have a close event to try out. Using our club Facebook page, players are able to communicate with one another about other events they have heard about or ask other players if they would like to meet them to play on an upcoming weekend.
The Houston Paintball Club group is growing and the responses have been very positive and encouraging. If you are in or around the Houston area, be sure to check out our Houston Paintball Club Facebook page to see when our next event is and to stay in touch with other local players!
Houston Paintball Players
Paintball in Houston comes in all variations from the recreational player, the regular, the scenario player and the pro. At Pro Edge Paintball our staff is made up of players from all levels who have grown up at the Houston paintball fields ever since they were only 10 years old. Some members of our staff play local and national events traveling from Houston to Dallas and San Antonio all the way to Las Vegas and Orlando, Florida!
We all remember what it is like to be a new players at the local Houston fields. If you are a new player and are not sure where to start or how to go about meeting other players feel free to reach out to us so we can put you in contact with some other players at the same level. We try to do our best to ensure our local community is growing.
Paintball Gear and Equipment
If you are a newer player and looking to purchase your first paintball gun, at first this looks like it could be a huge headache. With so much new paintball gear out there every day and so many mixed reviews, the journey to buying paintball equipment can be tough.
At Pro Edge Paintball we pride ourselves to maintain our 5 star rating on Google by making honest and considerate paintball gear and equipment recommendations to new players. Our staff is trained to not sell you some new paintball equipment that won’t fit your needs the best and will only be a waste. With any industry there are a lot of products that don’t do what they promise, paintball is no different. With us having such great working relationships in the paintball industry we only refer our clients to paintball companies that truly stand behind their products with great warranties and helpful customer service.
While out there looking for new paintball tanks ,paintball masks, or paintball gear in general be sure to ask a Pro Edge trainee staff member what they would recommend for your budget and playing level!
If you aren’t a new player but more of a regular or interested in becoming apart of Paintball tournaments our staff has over 40 years of combined tournament experience with some of us even competing professionally in Europe as recent as 2018. Be sure to contact us for advice on which fields would be best to get int tournaments and to start your own paintball team at!
In addition to the newer players and the regulars, Houston has a huge community of scenario or tactical style players. These players compete in the woods or in close quarter combat formatted playing fields to simulate a more realistic game style. We at Pro Edge do not discriminate against any type of style of paintball so we have also played our fair share of scenario games with anywhere from 500 to 1000 players at a time battling it out! These games are by far the most enjoyable and the most action you will ever experience in a single weekend of playing paintball. Pro Edge Paintball sponsors a couple local scenario teams so if you are interested in becoming apart of this style of play, let us know so we can put you in touch with the right people!
Houston Paintball League
Only a few years ago we formed the Houston Paintball League, a tournament league for newer tournament players in Houston to be apart of and to compete. We have since sold this series to very nice paintball field owner out of Austin, Texas who still operates it in Houston.
If you are looking to get into tournaments without traveling outside of Houston, please take a minute to look up the Houston Paintball League. This tournament series offers players to compete in different formats such as 3 man which is 3 vs 3 and 5 man which is 5 vs 5. The 5 vs 5 is the most popular and most standard format to compete in as the National Paintball tournaments use this format as well.
Every person who works at Pro Edge Paintball has been on a team and competed in tournaments. Some of our staff started competing as young as twelve years old while some still compete well into their thirties. As you can see we have a wealth of knowledge from all different experience levels and ages.
If you are a new player or know someone trying to get into tournament paintball in Houston, please know that we will guide you into the right direction!
