Going Postal was formed circa 1999 behind the actions of Steve aka ‘Witzy’ when he was the owner of a small retail paintball site in Dawlish, Devon. As a manager within the Exeter Royal Mail delivery office Steve gathered some of the guys together and they went to have a go at paintball. After an eventful day of shooting each other they found out they liked it. These get-togethers progressed from once a month to once a week.
This led onto a hardcore team of 7 players. In 2001 they started to further their knowledge by joining the Scenario Paintball scene within the UK meeting other teams and attending events.
Going Postal soon started to make a name for themselves with their hard game play and bubbly selves becoming a great team to play alongside. They were then spotted by a UK based company BZ who offered them help and service whenever then need a quick marker upgrade or repair.
As the games started to progress and get bigger they started to further their sights on new players and was one of the first teams in the UK to have a female player within the team.
Going Postal's ethos can best be described as pure scenario, non-cheating, non-sparkly, up front and vocal. In 2007 earned the award for 'UK Scenario Team of the Year 2007.
In 2008 they started to progress from playing to running paintball events at their local home site UCZ Bunker (just to the North of Exeter) with are Bunker assault game. The original CQB Urban site has been host to some of the best games in the UK in the last 5 years both under the stewardship of Ash and Bunker Productions and by Going Postal Paintball and in 2011 they earned the award 'UK Scenario Marshalling Team of the Year'. Going postal then started hosting games at MOD sites such as Copehill Down Urban Training Village and they also have some very exciting future sites which they can't wait to get people on.
Going Postal has been active at nearly every scenario game throughout the years with attendances at Games even outside of the UK like the Oklahoma D-Day game in the U.S, games in Croatia and even venturing to a game in Greece in May 2013.
"We still travel around the UK attending as many games as possible and running our own Scenario based games with the next one in April called 'The Siege' with a high number of players making the travel to attend for the weekend long day/night games plus are awesome Tippman Tactical series which can only be found at Going Postal scenario games.” Going Postal
