What is Battle of the Badges?
Battle of the Badges is a paintball tournament unlike anything you have probably played before. In addition to being strictly for first responders, it combines elements from all styles of paintball in an effort to level out the playing field between those that have played before and those that haven't. In doing this, our goal is to make this a tournament with a champion at the end of each event, but to also provide a fun, competitive, stress-relieving event for our nation's first responders. From rounds of straight elimination, to capture the flag, building siege, hostage rescue, and slap sticks, we will put the teams through various scenarios in order to knock out the competition and earn their place among the Battle of the Badges Champions.
For as long as these professions have existed, first responders have dealt with some of society's worst circumstances. These brave men and women answer the call, often times running into harm's way when most people are running out. For this reason, Battle of the Badges has been a passion project for us at the National Police Paintball Organization. Through our first responder exclusive 5v5 paintball tournaments, we are able to bring together amateurs and pros, rookies and veterans, in the spirit of competition, allowing our brothers and sisters in some of the most stressful jobs on the planet the opportunity to decompress and let their guard down.
