What about a giveaway?
paintball teams must post your link plus info about your giveaway in a blog post, and a picture of them or something and they enter your giveaway that way.
You giveaway 10 patches or something like that. Whatever the pro team size is. If it was soccer it would be 11 players. Even if they are 100 members, you focus on just the team size to keep pricing fixed.
Now you are reaching paintball teams for your giveaway, and are not looking to get backlinks. They wont be able to charge you, and you get backlinks.
Obviously dont frame it like I did it above, talk about sportmanship and helping for X reason, and just include in the rules of your giveaway about giving a link to the giveaway, which is a backlink, but they wont know.
