What is Paintball?

- Players: men or women over the age of 10 can play. School teachers, students, professionals or technicians, all players share a love for adventure & strong competitive team spirit.
- Paintball is similar to childhood "tag" and "hide and seek", but much more challenging and sophisticated.
- A paintball splat removes you from the game.
- The object of the game is to capture the opponents flag and protect your own.
- Players are divided into two teams (red & blue armbands).
- At Paintball Paradise, we play other variations including: center flag, hunter rabbit, line-up, barn attack, and more.
- We're open to new ideas too.
What is a Paintball?
- A paintball is a marble sized sphere (0.68 caliber).
- The paint inside is non-toxic, non caustic, water-soluble and biodegradable.
- Colors of the paint varies, but red & blue are banned from the field.
- The gelatin cover is just like a vitamin capsule (most paintballs are manufactured by pharmaceutical companies).
- On impact, the paintball splits open and splatters the paint on the target.
- The paint rinses out of clothing and off skin with mild soap and water.
- A player who is marked is eliminated from the game.
What is a Paintball marker?
- A specially designed "air" powered marker, which can hold 180 paintballs and can fire them semi automatic (one shot per tigger pull) up to 10 balls per second. Some paintball markers are pump action.
- The paintball markers used at Paintball Paradise are Vibe semi-automatics.
- Field speed limit on the paintballs is 270 f.p.s. (feet per second), which is 30 f.p.s. slower than most fields.
- A field limit of 10 b.p.s. (ball per second)
- All paintballs markers must be radar chronographed (speed tested) to under 270 f.p.s.
Does a paintball hit hurt?
- Not likely, because of the adrenaline in your blood and the safety equipment worn to protect you.
- Safety equipment includes: Special Paintball Impact-proof Goggles that protect the eyes & ears, head wrap & camouflage jacket.
- However; at close range sometimes they will leave a minor bruise and may feel like a mild bee sting.
How safe is paintball?
- Paintball is one of the safest sports, when proper protective equipment is used. This means only paintball approved goggles. JT, Scott, Vents & Leader manufacture proper paintball goggles, however; some make goggles for other uses which are no good for paintball.
- The following are from the National Safety Council stats (circ.1991) and are injuries per 1000 participants. I will try to update these soon.
Who plays paintball and why?
- Everybody who wants to have a great time, and is over 10 years old.
- Paintball is a sport where women and men compete equally and where age is not dominated by youth.
- Size and strength are not as important as intelligence and determination.
- Major corporations send executives to play because it teaches: quick thinking, strategy, planning, team work, self-esteem, leadership skills, motivation, trust, communication, co-operation, problem solving and it relieves stress.
- And it's FUN!
Where can I get more information?
- The easiest and best way to find out more is to ask other people who have played.
