What is Paintball?

Paintball, America's Fastest Growing Sport

Paintball is an exciting game of Tag and Hide and Seek all rolled into one. There are many variations of the game, where two teams attempt to cross terrain, capture their opponents flag, and return it to the flag station without being marked by a paint pellet. Each player is armed with a paint marker that shoots soft gelatin balls the size of a bath bead. These are filled with a washable paint that splatters upon impact. Games vary in time, but most players will get in several games in a session.

Is it War? The common presumption of non-players is that the sport of paintball caters to the "Rambo's" of society, those people with a paramilitary bent. Little do they know that Paintball is a well organized, exciting and expanding sport. It is a game and nothing more. If you go to a paintball field expecting a crash course in subversive thuggery, you'll be disappointed.

Is it Dangerous? Safety is the key word at our field. You must be careful while running in the woods, but the only way a player can be injured by playing paintball is if he or she removes their goggles during play, or if a player uses a gun in an unsafe manner. Our judges are there to make sure everyone follows the safety rules. Any infraction of the safety rules will result in immediate ejection from the field. It is always SAFETY FIRST!!!!

Does it Hurt? That's one of -the most commonly asked questions. The answer is if you are wearing sensible clothing like a jacket, thick jumper or overalls ... then no. If you get hit by a pellet at close range on bare skin then expect a sharp shock. It might sting for a minute and leave a small welt at worst.

Who Plays Paintball? Everyone!!! You must be 10 years old to play. Parents/guardian consent is required for players under 18 years of age. Both men and women enjoy the sport of paintball. The game is played in many different countries around the world!
