Huntington Beach, Calif..―The rebranded paintball competition in Huntington Beach (NPPL was sold and then closed) is now featured as the US Paintball League. Making its debut appearance in Huntington Beach, this event promises to capture the essence of previous paintball competitions held on the sands of the famed Huntington Beach, right next to the Huntington Beach Pier. Take in the action in the stadium, or wander the tent city expo with all the latest paint guns, ammo, and gear such as clothing, helmets and more.

Paintball is a game based on the traditional format of Capture the Flag. Super 7 format matches two seven-man teams against each other on a field approximately the size of a tennis court. Inflated shapes that offer some cover to the players.  Each game lasts a maximum of 7 minutes and whichever team eliminates the other and captures the opposing teams flag wins the entire match. The action is fast and furious.

Held for three days on the south side of the Huntington Beach Pier, visitors can watch from stands to see behind the inflatables where the players hide. Activities surrounding the event include 60 vendors at Pier Plaza, new gear lines, manufacturers, pro player autograph signings on Friday, and some TV celebs are expected to make unannounced appearances.
