What is the PSP?
Simply put, Paintball Sports Promotions (PSP) is Tournament Paintball.
In just over ten years, PSP Events and its sponsors have truly propelled paintball into a worldwide-recognized sport. As the industry leader in setting standards for tournament play in format, rules, classifications and safety, PSP is unifying the sport of paintball and bridging the gap between traditional and professional play.

The PSP Competitive Format
PSP uses a now industry standard format for competitive paintball called “Race-To”. Teams compete in “Matches” of paintball, which are made up of back-to-back games of 5 vs 5, played consecutively with just two minutes in between games. To win the match, one team must win a designated number of games (based on division, teams either play Race-to 4, Race-to 5, and Race-to 7.) Games are won by hanging a flag in the center of the field on an opponents “start gate”, which typically happens after one team eliminates all five of their opponents.
Watch an example paintball match below. This is a professional paintball match where teams play Race-to 7. The teams are San Diego Dynasty vs. LA Infamous competing at the 2014 PSP Dallas Open. Both teams will play each other back to back, 5 vs 5, until one team either gets 7 game wins or the match clock expires. (game play starts at 4:00)
Match Time: 20 Minutes
Players: 5 vs 5
To Win: First to 7 Points
To Score: Hang Flag on Opponents Start Gate
Penalties: Wiping Hits, Playing On, Overshooting
Player Eliminations: Shot anywhere on body or equipment
