UKPSF Team Spotlight - Corruption

  Corruption officially formed in 2019 from a core membership which has been playing tournament paintball since the early 1990`s. some of our past teams have been Deja Vouz, 299vc, Chameleons and  one of our founding members was instrumental in setting up team FE. Corruption are based out of Combat Zone Lincoln. Corruptions main sponsors are Bunkerkings, Just Paintball , Skirmish Pro training centre and Fat Boy pots. Corruption focus on having fun at both walk-on events and tournament level play and look to help out younger players and teams by being easily approachable . All of our players are members of the UKPSF which we see as an important step to supporting the sport we love . We are looking forward to building our team and attending events at Skirmish and CPPS later in the year.

UKPSF Players Subcommittee.

At this year's UKPSF AGM it was put forward, by the current board, that to increase the representation of the players within the UKPSF a player’s subcommittee should be formed. Players were asked to put themselves forward, and from those applications a subcommittee has been formed. 

It is very early days for the players subcommittee, but we wanted to let you know that the committee has now been formed and the first piece of work they are working on is the players code of conduct. As time moves on, we hope that the player subcommittee will bring a closer connection between the player members and the UKPSF board.  

The UKPSF is here to help and protect all aspects of Paintball in all of the different and amazing formats/styles that are played in the United Kingdom, and it is important to the UKPSF that the players have a voice and a way to express their ideas and concerns.

We would also like to introduce you to the players that are involved and to give you a little bit of info about the chosen few. 

Lydia Conway has stepped forward and will be chairperson for the subcommittee and will communicate directly with the UKPSF board.

If you would like to contact the UKPSF players subcommittee then please email: player@ukpsf.com
