|Ambush Speedball Park is B.C.'s Longest continuiously running tournament paintball facility; hosting practices every spring summer and fall (and sometimes winter) since 2001! Ambush Speedball Park started simply as a private place for the then Ambsuh staff and owners to play and practice the sport of paintball, free of the drama and excessive costs associated with speedball practices at the time. After a short period of time we decided, "why keep this field all to ourselves?", and opened our practices up to the general public.
Thanks to the help of people like Doug Miller, Danny Miller,(mr paintball vancouver) and Sean Lyons,(badlands paintball vancouver) we were able to transform what was a couple of friends gathering in a farmers field, into the top tournament facility in the province. We started with a TUBED 5 man speedball field with compressors that actually filled the field. Soon we ditched that beat up field in favor of the popular Xball and Nppl fields of the time and the rest as they say is history. By 2002 we were hosting various tournament series, including running some of our very own events. Tournaments like "Fools Cup" and "Rush" boasted approximately 100 teams, with prize packages in excess of $20000! In 2005 the BCPPL emerged and we have been hosting their events up until 2011. For 2012 and beyond, Ambush Paintball is one of the home fields of the VANCOUVER PAINTBALL LEAGUE. We look forward to a great season with the VPL
Ambush is a Major Sponsor and supporter of the Vancouver Paintball scene. We have been working hard throughout the years to introduce more people to the game, and encouraging new players to take up the sport. We sponsor top level pro teams such as Portland UPRISNG, and Vancouver Vendetta, as well as our home team and party brigade the AMBUSH ARMY. We have been host to some of the top talent in western Canada. Thanks to our conquests abroad, Ambush Has become well know around the globe, with people visiting us from Oregon, California, Texas, and even as far away as Europe, South America and Asia! Not bad for a lil' ol' field from Surrey, B.C.
