Kinetic Winning Ways !!!

UK Based team Kinetic have been part of the Eclipse Emortal Army for a few seasons now and there team program seems to be paying dividends in depth….Here is a little report from the last leg of the NSPL.

Team Kinetic NSPL Reading Final Leg

On the 22nd August 2010 team Kinetic sent both their Div 2 and Div 3 squads to Reading for the final round of the NSPL.

After a long and tough season the Div 3 team (Kinetics Pulse) were fighting for bragging rights as they couldn’t win the division but 2nd place was for the taking, and considering that this was the teams learning and building season and that many had not even played tournament paintball before, this year has been not only a steep learning curve but also an amazing achievement as they were considered by many to be punching well above their weight playing div 3 in their first season.

For the Div 2 squad this was what the whole season had been working towards and the teams at the top of this hard fought division had been battling harder and harder in the new Race 2 format at each event. Without a doubt this has been the toughest Div 2 in the NSPL for years.

After the final legs results had been added up Pulse ended the season in a highly impressive 2nd place overall which is a credit to the capt as well as the rest of the team who have consistently been standing on the podium often placing above much more experienced teams.

For Kinetic (Velocity) it would be controlled aggression and consistency that would win the day. After winning all six matches and only dropping 2 points all day not only did they take another 1st place event win but also the Div 2 championship title for 2010. Our hardest clashes all season came in the form of Team Snatch (fellow Planet eclipse team) who managed to take secure second place.

During the season both Kinetic squads consistently lifted trophies at all the events helped by our training regime at UCZ in Devon.

Rich ‘Gadge’ Andrews had this to say: “All year the Ego’s and Geo’s of the 2 teams have performed without fault letting the guys get on with the job in hand, these markers combined with our Dark Sports paint was simply a winning combination. Outstanding!.

Kinetic would like to take this opportunity to thank our sponsors namely Planet Eclipse, Jon and Chris from London International Paintball supplies (Dark Sports) and Full bore images for their continued support and we hope our results this season go in some way to repay the faith you guys have in us as a squad. Special thanks needs to go to Tom, Ledz and all the staff at PE for putting up with the emails and stupid questions and to Nicky for pointing us in the right direction it is appreciated guys.

I would also like to thank my guys, the Team Kinetic army who have all given 100% all season it’s been a pleasure to train and play alongside you all. And a quiet nod to Pete and Bob the 2 team captains for putting in the extra ours with myself to make sure it all works on the field and behind the scenes. “

All that’s left is for Kinetic to prepare for the final event of the season the Fed Cup and a heavy off season getting ready for 2011.

See you on the 50!
