What is paintball?
Paintball is an outdoor activity that has been in vogue since the 1980s and is played between two teams. The goal of the game is to score points for your team by aiming and hitting other players with paintballs. This activity is very entertaining but requires a certain amount of equipment for the players to enjoy the game 100% without getting hurt.
History of Paintball
Paintball was born 40 years ago, when farmers looking to show their land to potential buyers came up with the idea of using paintballs to mark boundaries and obstacles. The first industrial players appeared around 1981 and paintball has become a recreational activity enjoyed by thousands of people around the world.
Rules and good practices
To be a good player, it is important to know and respect some basic rules: always wear a mask to protect your eyes, do not shoot within 15 meters of other players. Before each game, also make sure you have the proper equipment which are the mask, chest protector and paintballs or cans. By ensuring that all players follow these rules, the paintball field can remain comfortable and safe for all participants.
In order to protect yourself from flying paintballs during a game, it is essential that you have a good paintball outfit. It is mandatory to wear a mask, face shield and gloves to provide excellent protection against paintballs. Also, don’t forget to use appropriate footwear to protect your feet during the game.
