Paintball is played all over the world by all sorts of people and combines the fun of childhood games like hide and seek but is more challenging. Most paintball players divide into two teams and the objective of the game is to go out and capture the others team flag while trying to protect your own.
But while you are trying to capture the flag you are also trying to eliminate the opposing players by tagging them with a paintball which is a round, thin skinned gelatin capsule with colour inside it. This paintball is expelled from a paintball marker which is powered by CO2 gas cylinder. Once a paintball hits you on impact the paintball breaks open and releasing a bright coloured vegetable dye. Once you have been hit, you are then out of the game.

Is Paintball Safe?
Statistics show that paintball is one of the safest sports around.
Does it hurt?
At paintball adventures we ensure all the correct standards of the game are followed. Every paintball marker is checked for velocity speed before every game so the paintballs are flying less than 300 feet per second. We suggest that you wear sensible clothing and our overalls which are supplied. The answer to this is 'No', it might sting for a few seconds.
Dont worry! Girls, we make sure that you are looked after. We supply gloves, neck protection and padded vest at no extra cost.
How long do games go for?
Each game goes around 15 to 20 minutes depending on the game that you are playing.
No physical contact is allowed. Players that don't behave will be removed from the game.
Safety is our number 1 aim!
At paintball adventures we are very safety conscious. All our games are supervised and controlled by our fully trained, professional umpires. The priority for our game umpires is safety, and to do this effectively there are no comprises on our rules and standards.
All players must wear our approved face/eye protection at all times whilst on the playing fields. As long as the goggles are worn, paintball is a very safe sport.
