PSP Dallas Open

The PSP Dallas Open is the kick-off of the 2015 paintball season. Every year, hundreds of teams flock to Dallas in the middle of March to take part in the first event of the season. Teams will play each other for prizes and the pride. There are many teams ranging from Division 5 up through Professional. To be ranked in the top of the country you must battle for seed points at each of the 5 PSP events. To win the event takes weeks of dedicated practice and even then a little bit of luck is needed to see a team to the finals. This year for the Dallas Open there are over 140 teams showing up to battle for the number 1 spot in their respective divisions. With the dropping of the Pro-Challengers division this year, it becomes even more of a fight for the number one spot in each division. Especially true of the division 1 teams, as they are fighting for a spot in the professional bracket. Teams will compete at the highest levels in order to show that they are the best, and have a chance to move up to the next division.

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 has created the format of XBALL to be used in competitive events. This format makes it much easier to watch and follow the sport of paintball. The PSP has also been innovative in the use of statistics and tracking of individual players and teams. This use of statistical analysis has lead to the expansion of paintball as a whole.

What is XBALL?

XBALL is a format of paintball that is played on a mirrored field. This means that both end of the field match each other. In the middle of the field there is a flag. The objective is to eliminate the other teams 5 players and hang the flag on their start box. The first team to 7 points, or the team leading at the end of 20 minutes is declared the victor.
