Woodsball aka Rec Ball vs. Speedball | Paintball


My name is Mike Peverill. I’m here at Pev’s Paintball Park in Aldie,
Virginia. I’ve been playing paintball nearly 30 years. I’ve played professional paintball with numerous
pro teams all over the world. This facility here was built from the ground
up for paintball, kind of like a paintball Disney Land. Our website is www.pevs.com. Hopefully you can come out and visit us sometime. Different formats of paintball. Rec Ball and Woodsball are similar, they’re
pretty much the same. We consider it, basically, Rec Ball or Speedball. Speedball is the faster paced paintball game. It’s typically on a smaller field. It’s symmetrical. it’s typically with air bunkers or some type
of bunkers where everything’s built the same. So both sides are playing on a field in a
symmetrical mirror. It’s a faster game, because you’re not hiding
in the woods and brush and behind trees and logs. And that’s why the name, Speedball, came about. Because it was a game, when they played it
in an arena, it went really really fast. It basically was like a five minute game,
sometimes three minute game. Sometimes I’ve seen games go, you know, just
30 seconds. Rec Ball, Woodsball — Rec Ball is the fun
type of ball. And you can’t always say Woodsball, because
not everywhere has woods. So that’s why they use the term “”Rec Ball.”” Rec Ball is that, I wanna get out and have
an adventure. I want the thrill of the hunt. I’m out there, I’m seeking out somebody. I’m working with a team of buddies to try
to capture the flag and bring it back. And so they get out there, and they play on
fields that have props. A town, a fort, caves, buildings. Woods, creeks and rivers, and brush. Anything you can climb through and be sneaky. And that’s what Rec Ball is. That’s what most people who play paintball
play — Rec Ball. In our business here, most paintball that
we do is Rec Ball. Speedball, we do a lot of it, but very small
amounts compared to everything else.
