The Super6 is not a revolution for paintball, but the intention is that it is the start of the evolution of the woods based game.
The aim is two fold and fairly simple. Firstly, Super6 wants to eliminate the 'lottery' that many players have experienced in recent times when purchasing event tickets. All too often, events have fallen short of their billing, with less facilities, less players and less value than players were led to believe would be on offer when they paid for this ticket.
Secondly, Super6 aims to take all the components of an event and make them 10% or 15% better. Registration will be slicker, food will be better quality and cheaper, toilets will be cleaner, marshalling will be more consistent, staging will be greater, game times will be longer, Saturday will offer more activities and value, there will be more overseas players, bigger and better prizes, better event videos etc. Taken on their own none of these will change the game, but taken as a whole, they'll move the game forward significantly in terms of quality and value for the players. Over the course of several seasons, players will see a quantum difference in the quality of events when compared to pre-Super6 days.
The Super6 promises to be a safe pair of hands for player’s
hard earned ticket money. A banker event where players will know exactly what
they’ll get before even arriving. Players can expect the
All players will recognise the value that traders bring to an event. Not only do traders offer essential supplies, but they also offer support and technical assistance for your equipment right where you need it – at events. Super6 events will be trader paint only games. This means that all paint used will be purchased from the traders at the events. All brands will be available from a choice of multiple traders starting at £22.50, so there is no restriction on what paint players can use and paint prices at Super6 events will not be any higher than what players could expect to pay elsewhere. Most players will agree that supporting the traders who support events is a sensible and fair policy. All traders are welcome to attend and support their customers at Super6 events.

All four organisers are passionate about scenario and Big Game paintball and all recognise that now is the time to really push Big Game weekends onto the next level. Value for money, safety and the quality of the event for players has all too often been pushed aside in recent years, but the organisers behind the Super6 believe now is the time for an injection of investment in the game to improve the quality and value of events for attending players.
By coming together, these organisers have been able to put in place a blueprint for events that will see Scenario and Big Game paintball come right into the 21st Century whilst providing players with much more ‘bang for their buck’. The Super6 will be a safe pair of hands, a banker for the players. Players will know what they can expect before they even arrive at each event.
