Tornado team members have as much fun off the field as they do on it. Our players are all ages from all walks of life.
What unites us is our love of all things paintball. Be part of something great in 2014. Don't delay, join Team Tornado today...
Tornado is a national paintball team attending everything paintball from big events to local walk-on sites. Our team members are all ages & come from all over the UK. Our key objective is to play paintball & have fun doing it. For this reason we welcome anyone into the team, from novice to veteran. As long as you want to play paintball with other likeminded folk Tornado is for you. Being part of a team affords our members benefits that you won’t get participating as an individual. Recognised by the industry as a driving force in UK paintball Tornado has the support of manufacturers & retailers such as G.I.Sportz & LIPs (London International Paintball Supplies). By encouraging our affiliation with manufacturers & distributers our players can equip & play for less than you might normally expect through sponsorship & discount initiatives.
In return for the benefits & advantages of belonging to Tornado all that we ask in return is that you wear & play in an official team top. Or if you prefer you can iron onto your existing playing gear some of our quality embroidered team patches. It is not necessary to attend every game on the team calendar but you will be expected to attend a minimum of four games/events over the year with the Team Captain in order to be considered a full team member. When you do play it's expect you will wear the team emblem with pride. As well as the discounts & offers we operate a private Facebook group where the team can exchange ideas & information. To get started is easy, just contact us using the contact form on this site & ask about joining the team. We'll email you back with what to do next.
Team Tornado is actually three teams that have come together under one banner. We play togther & all share the same resources including sponsorship.
The orginal Team Tornado started by Team Captain Richard Widenbar. Based in the South-East of England.
Our veteran tourney/rec-ball division are hard-core. These guys are a fierce fighting pack not to be ignored lightly on the field of play.
Founder of Team Tornado Richard is still actively involved with the week to week afaires of the team dispite breaking his leg earlier this year at WARPed, North V South. Team Leader for the StormTroopers, Tornado's South-East Chapter, Richard is also Captain of the Tornado Team.
An experienced player Scott employs speed & aggression on the playing field. He has spent a lot of time at walk-ons & attended many Big Events across the country. Scott is Leader of the Tornado MadDogz chapter.
A long-time friend & fellow baller of Richard Widenbar, Ashley Leads the Torndao Vikings Chapter based in Kent & the east coast of the UK. Ashley comes back to the team after 9 months recovering from a serious shoulder injury. He brings with him a pleasant demeanour & a wealth of paintball knowledge.
G.I.Sportz & LIPs for their continued support.
Cheers to the UK Paintball Community and PlanetPaintball Forum members for their contributions now & in the future. See you at the next Big Game.
