Does Paintball Hurt?
The paintballs break open upon impact, and generally cause very little pain. What pain is experienced is more of a stinging sensation from the paintballs impact against the skin or through clothing. In my experience, the stinging pain goes away after about 30 seconds. Of course, the closer you are to the muzzle of the gun, the higher the velocity of the pellet when it hits you. Thus, more pain may be experienced when shot at close range rather than farther away.
Do the paintballs stain my clothing/equipment?
Paint is water-soluble and should wash out easily with hot water, however if left untouched more than 24 hours some paint does tend to stain.
Can I just show up on the weekend and play?
We only accept “walk-ons” for our “Open Play”, which are (you guessed it) open to the general public. All other games are considered private because the group (made up of at least 10 people) has reserved the field(s) to themselves for the time allotted. Open play hours are Saturday 11-5 and Sunday 1-5.
What do I need to bring?
Players should wear old comfortable clothing (ex: military pants, sweat pants and shirts, overalls, denim, etc) and may also want to bring a change of clothes for the conclusion of the game day. The most suitable footwear would be a light boot but old running shoes are most commonly worn. Cleats are NOT allowed. If you don’t have your own, we sell specially made paintball gloves and other gear at the pro-shop.
