Table of Contents 


Ultimate Woodsball League promotes safe, fair and competitive paintball games. The UWL efforts aim to make paintball more attractive for players and to help the unification of world paintball. The UWL encourage all participants to use proper care to make our sport safer – to wear approved goggles, block the barrels with barrel socks, keep the ball’s muzzle velocity within safety limit, maintain gas cylinders in prescribed way and follow all additional safety rules on the playing fields, players area. The UWL consider the safety and the fair play as the priorities. The general idea of UWL 5 man format is:

 5 man game in the woods

 Objective: to score as many points in 10 minutes by capturing objectives and bases.

 10 minute game divided into two 5 min periods.

 Eliminated players will reinsert at 5 minutes after game start.

Spirit of the Game

The UWL relies upon a spirit of sportsmanship that places the responsibility for fair play on the player. Highly competitive play is encouraged, but never at the expense of mutual respect among players! Wiping overshooting or other win-at-all-costs behavior are contrary to the spirit of the game and must be avoided by teams and players alike. Participants who do not follow this sportsmanship code will be to be allowed to play in the UWL.
