The reason you don't see much in the way of woodsball tournaments is that if you want to keep your tournaments cheap, well officiated and with decent playing time, airball just makes more sense. If you play in the woods, you need more space (otherwise its basically speedball with trees). More space means more refs, as if you are really in the woods your sight lines are limited. More refs cost money. Larger fields mean more turn around time, particularly if they're a hike from the staging area. You also need your fields to be balanced so no side has an advantage. There just aren't enough guys willing to pay more for less playtime to do a woods tourney. Honestly, if you haven't tried a laid back event like the gravity league games I'd give it a whirl. I am a woods guy (and most certainly not a touney player) and had a blast playing that format even though I really don't like airball. Hope you find what you're looking for.
