What is Paintball

Paintball is currently one of the fastest growing sports in Europe. Every month 1000s of new players try out the most exciting pastime available. Most first time players are attending a corporate event day, stag party, birthday party or just a group of friends getting together to have a day of fun. After playing for the first time a large number are "bitten by the bug" and return on a regular basis.

The common presumption of non-players is that paintball caters for the Rambo’s of society and those 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 site expecting a crash course in subversive thuggery; you'll be disappointed.

The most common asked question is "does it hurt and is it dangerous?" The answer is: if you are wearing sensible clothing; a thick jacket, thick jumper or coveralls then NO! If you are running around in the altogether and are shot from point blank range, expect a sharp shock.
