Who can play paintball?
Nobody can out-run a paintball which makes it easy for anyone to shoot and excel in the sport of Paintball. You can be young, old, short, tall, skinny, fat, male or female and EVERYONE is equal.
What is paintball?
Paintball is one of the world’s newest outdoor participation sports. A combination of “Capture the Flag”, “Hide & Seek” and “Tag”, but more fun! Players are divided into two teams. The object of the game is to capture the other team’s flag while protecting your own.
Paintballs are non-toxic gelatin capsules filled with washable color fluid. When paintball tags a player, the thin gelatin ball splits, leaving a “paint” mark to signify the elimination. Safety equipment, including full-face paintball goggles are provided to insure a safe and fun day for all.
Paintball is played by people of all ages (10 and up) and from all professions and lifestyles. Women stand on equal footing with men. Physical size and strength do not play a star factor. It is one’s ability to think that helps make a star.
What will your day by like at Paintball Action Games?
We start you on the Red field with a classic capture the flag match. The game ends one of three ways. By capturing the flag (taking it from the opposing team’s flag station and returning it to yours) or by eliminating the entire opposing team or after 15 minutes whichever team has the most remaining players. One to two referees are on the field at all times to oversee all players primarily for safety and to discourage any forms of cheating. Disobeying referees in either case will result in one warning, then ejection from a game. If it continues you may be ejected from the fields for the day without refund. Please obey the referees for a trouble-free day.
When the game is over the teams take a break at the staging area to boast of accomplishments, refill on C02 (or air) and refill their hoppers with paint. Then the teams return to the red field switching sides. We then move onto the Orange fields and then to the Speedball field.
While many groups may play only among themselves, we do have individuals, pairs and small groups known as walk-ons. Walk-ons are welcome and we mix them into larger parties and balance out their placement among larger groups.
Never fear the players dressed in paintball gear or using their own marker. Remember what we said above, no-one can out-run a paintball. You are as good as you want to be. We have seen mothers and fathers, eight-year old children perform better than speedy teenagers and twenty-somethings.
How To Have Fun Playing Paintball
Winning a paintball match is not how to determine your fun level. However if you are having fun, you are a winner. And let’s face it, if you’re not being shot at, your not having fun.
But if you want to play it safe, know that you if you don’t want to get shot, you won’t. This means you determine how aggressive or risky you want to be on the field. If you want to play up on the front lines in the action, you will. But as you move forward, don’t move beyond your lines (too far in front of your team-mates). Attack with patience, making your shots count. This preserves paintballs too.
Food and Beverages
We sell canned drinks and candy at the staging area. From Iced-Tea to Sprite and Kit-Kat bars to Snickers bars. At lunch we order Pizza from Dominoes. You can bring your own food and refreshments and portable barbeques are welcome.
