Paintball Glory Awaits You

As a stress-reliever, it's a great way to let it all out. Taking aim and firing away at someone - harmlessly, of course. Maybe that's why paintball has grown over the years, giving weekend warriors a break from sitting behind a desk.

It's also become a professional event, as you can witness for yourself with the Chicago area plays host to the 2008 Chicago Open, June 25-29 at the Bolingbrook Recreation and Aquatic Center. The sponsors, Paintball Sports Promotions, has released the layout of the playing field. They expect more than 200 teams from around the world. In addition, the event will host one of the largest paintball tradeshows of the year.
