When a group of friends were having a picnic in the city’s city parks, they started looking around for paintball spots.
Then one of them, Matthew, spotted a place that was popular with paintball players.
When the group headed there to take a look, they found a huge paintball field with an arena.
Now, the group has set up shop at the venue, which they’re calling “The Paintball Arena” and they’re ready to get started.
“It was pretty wild,” said Matthew.
“You wouldnt expect the biggest, most exciting arena in the country, but the players are all in shape, and it was a blast.”
They started playing on Thursday and are planning on running a monthly league until the end of May.
“I can’t even describe how awesome it was,” said Andrew, who is also a Pittsburgh resident.
“We’ve been playing for two years, and we’re all pretty stoked about it.”
While they are still working on finding a venue for the monthly league, the paintball community in Pittsburgh is ready to welcome them.
“Pittsburgh has been the leader for the paintballs,” said Mike.
“The paintball arena is the perfect location to showcase the game and to showcase paintballers.”
