Paintball is a team game in which players on one team seek to eliminate those on an opposing team by marking them with a water-soluble dye shot in capsules from air guns. Players play on specially laid out paintball fields which contain specific, barriers behind which players can hide, and so called safe zones. There are special buildings for playing that are complete with light and additional “traps” and barriers. The equipment used in paintball includes the paintball marker and a face mask as minimum protection. There are also special vests to protect and camouflage players. Advanced participants usually have special paintball loaders and harnesses for their guns, which make it easier to run, load and shoot. There are some differences between Recreational, Sportive and Tactical Paintball.
Paintball play is available for any person started form age 11.
Dependent on scenario one paintball “battle” may proceed from 2 to 15 minutes.
