Sylvan Lake Paintball is now open and they are starting their season off with an opening event on the facility’s grounds March 20.

Owner and operator of Sylvan Lake Paintball, Branden Majeau says the event is already receiving interest.

Much of the response is from the regulars but he invites new people to try the sport out.

As owner and operator of the facility Majeau is looking forward to the event.

“I think people are anxious to get outside,” he said. “We have had such beautiful weather in the last couple of weeks that people just want to do something.”

All ages are allowed to participate in this event. The facility has different paintball guns for different age groups and different comfort levels.

There are bigger guns for those who like to shoot with the bigger equipment and smaller guns for children or for those who just want to shoot with the smaller equipment.

“We have this low impact option which has been extremely popular,” Majeau said.

For this event they will be teaming up with the Canadian Professional Paintball League who runs all the big tournaments across the province.

With this event already being popular Majeau recommends people register early.

For registration call Branden Majeau at 403-887-4487.

Memberships options to the facility are available for one year from the date of purchase and are not on a seasonal basis.

“If you play more than five times a year the membership is the way to go because it is considerably cheaper,” Majeau said.
