Paintball is a safe, simple yet challenging & strategic sport that is played usually by six teams, each with at least six players. Adults & kids alike enjoy this sport as we often refer to it as an advanced or improvised game of tag.

Tournaments attract plenty of spectators of all ages, as it is a  exciting game to watch.

Paintball games are of various types, however, the most popular game often played is called “capture the flag”. The object or the objective of this game is for teams to advance to the opponentís base, move the other teamís flag to its destined location, at the same time guarding your own flag.

When one is hit, it can hurt briefly & at times give players bruises.  Players are typically required to be in long sleeves shirt & pants, making sure that the color isn’t be identical as that of the judge & complete paintball gear such as mask, helmet & goggles for safety.

The paintball field has plenty of obstacles such as tires, forts, old cars, hay & the newest are ìinflatablesî that are constructed as refuge for team players; making the game all the more exciting, as if participating in an actual game of war in videos.  

A military approach to paintball is useless, as that knowledge is recognized & understood by the teams. A teamís tactic should be carefully planned; your teamís line of attack won’t be known by the opposing team, & there should be a speedy switch of plans in case something goes wrong.

The sport of paintball has a distinct & accurate set of rules that are strictly followed. The producer of the tournament is the absolute authority in regard to either an alteration or addition to the rules; marshals oversee the event, & their decision is always final. No dispute on the paintball field is accommodated or entertained.

there has to be a lot of team work involved, as everyone moves through the field. As a team member moves, there should be others to guard & keep watch & give off covering shots when necessary.  A team that moves together with a common objective will have a great chance of succeeding in this game.

Communication in the field is also  important.  A team-mate can shout the position of the opponent. The moment that a player is seen, the game for that player is up; so there is no reason for you to keep quite; instead, inform the others the location of the enemy.

The excitement of this game concludes when you are seen & eliminated – a situation that all team players struggle to avoid.
