Summer season of 2008 will start tactical paintball tournament series „Latvian Tactical Paintball League” (abbr. LTPL), which will be held in the most popular Latvian regional paintball clubs. This is an open league for all Latvian and foreign tactical paintball teams, the goal of which is to develop tactical paintball and to identify the strongest Latvian tactical paintball team.
This year, tournament series will consist of 5 stages, which will be held in Vidzeme area – in Riga region, Cesis, Gulbene, in Aluksne region, and Limbazi region. In each of tournaments plan to participate at least one or two tournament series organizers’ teams, which already gives hope for sufficient number of teams in each tournament and for increased competition in contest for the best year’s team title among teams.
All organizers have many years experience in organization and management of paintball events, which will help to maintain good organizational level of tournament series. Latvian Tactical Paintball League is supported also by a number of sponsors, who will supplement to the teams’ prize money. The main aim of tournament organizers is relatively low fees for participation in the tournament series, instead providing for the high tournaments’ quality, which is related also to good recreation. Some of the tournaments will include the Players After Parties, which will take place in local recreational centers, free for participants.
