Paintball began in 1981. Paintball markers were originally created in early 1970s. They were used as tools for marking trees and livestock, very different from they are used today. The first paintball games were played in 1981.

Paintball is an adrenaline-pumping game, in which each person carries a paintball marker. From the start of the game, you hunt down your opponent, looking for that very import kill. Paintball is played regardless of age, race or gender. The only thing that matters, is whether you have a loaded paintball marker and are up for some adventure and competition.

The paintballs themselves are non-toxic, bio-degradable, and shouldn’t stain clothing. A ball is propelled through the marker using air/oxygen or CO2. All paintball markers are permitted to shoot below 300 FPS (feet per second), and all shoot at around 270 FPS (296km/h) on the range, thus, players on the field are encouraged to wear long-sleeved shirts and long pants, and to keep their masks on at all times for safety’s sake. A paintball travelling through the air slows down pretty quickly, giving you about 50 metres’ accuracy and effectiveness, and progressively less so up to 100 metres.

Wearing correct clothing as well as the supplied facial protection makes paintball one of the safest sports around. The game has a very low injury rate: only 1 in 4000 players will have to see a doctor for a paintball-related injury, which usually range from ankle sprains to scratches from the surrounding bush. Note that these aren’t accidents caused by paintball itself. Compare this to football, in which 1 in 33 players visit hospitals each year for medical attention to injuries directly caused by playing the sport.

Paintball has three game types: Bush BallSpeedball and MilSim.

Bush Ball is played in light to heavy bush, in which people can move stealthily to position themselves to take the shot that will eliminate another player. Recommended for the people who like a slower game and want to pull out their camouflage.

Speedball, on the other hand, is a fast-paced game of paintball that involves bunkers made from tires, pallets and many other items. Speedball is more the game for those who are hesitant to move up and make fast moves through the field. Airball, a variant of Speedball, utilises blow-up bunkers, similar in construction to jumping castles. Speedball is very spectator-friendly and promises a lot of high-velocity action.

MilSim Paintball is a new form of paintball that is steadily gaining popularity. MilSim stands for Military Simulated games. These games generally require strategic planning and a great amount of teamwork.

Can we still play in the rain?
Bookings still go ahead in all weather conditions unless there is a danger due to lightning, in this case bookings will be postponed.
How long is a session?

What is Airsoft?
Airsoft is an ultra realistic military simulation game using battery operated weapons that shoot a 6mm plastic BB.Games are normally scenario based with various missions that need to be accomplished.
Does getting shot with an airsoft BB hurt?
Airsoft BB’s typically leave small bumps on exposed skin. Protective gear including tactical vest and full face mask and goggles is recommended and supplied to our rental customers.
What is SplatMaster?
Simply put, splatmaster is a sporting goods product that shoots colour filled round ammo resulting in a Splat. The ammo is 100% biodegradable, non toxic, resists stains, and easily washes away with water. Splatmasters are spring loaded and shoot at a velocity of 110-140 feet per second. At this speed, you can see the ammo in the air before you see the satisfaction of your Splat.
Is splatmaster like Paintball?
For those familiar with paintball, splatmaster does have some similar characteristics on the surface. But dig a little deeper and you’ll find that splatmaster really is something totally new.

  • First, splatmasters are powered by spring pressure, not compressed air or CO2. This results in the Ammo only traveling between 110 and 140 feet per second versus 300 feet per second, the speed of a paintball.
  • Second, splatmaster ammo is smaller in size than standard paintballs, and when you include that characteristic with the reduced speed the ammo travels, it results in less energy – which means, less impact and considerably less “ouch”.
  • Last, we have developed a special shell and fill that is designed to break on contact traveling at the low speeds of a splatmaster.
Can I Use Safety Glasses for Protection?
No, safety glasses should never be used as protective eye wear. Always wear goggles specifically designed for paintball. Just like you would always wear a proper baseball helmet when hitting a baseball in practice or a game, it is critical for players and all those in the field of play to use proper splatmaster eye protection. Though safety glasses are safe for from work activities, the lenses are likely not tested, and therefore not approved for impact of a splatmaster ammo. Also, the strap system is an important safety feature of paintball goggle, and safety glasses can fall off or be dislodged during active play.
What Does it Feel Like to Get Hit?
This is the number one question new players and parents ask. splatmaster ammo has been developed and designed to shoot straight, break on contact, and clean up easily with water. The way it’s been described by 9+ kids is that it has a minor sting, like that of a small, thin rubber band. In our video, Does splatmaster Hurt?, we put this theory to the test by asking a ten year old how it feels after being hit by splatmaster ammo.

When the ammo hits something or someone it will break most of the time, especially on hard services or muscle/firm parts of the body. We say, “most”, because there are times when the ammo may hit a “soft” part of the body and bounce. Also, if ammo is not stored in proper conditions it can become hard and resist breaking – check out How to Store Your ammo to keep your ammo in prime condition.

Can I use a Paintball Goggle?
Yes. Paintball goggles developed for paintball will protect players from splatmaster ammo. So, if you already own a paintball goggle, it will provide full protection for all types of play with your splatmaster.
Can I reschedule my booking?
Should you wish to reschedule your booking we require a minimum of 48 hours notice,or else you will forfeit your deposit.
Is my deposit refundable?
No, once a booking has been scheduled we cannot refund your deposit due to cancellations.
What happens if I arrive late?
Your game commences at the scheduled time, we cannot wait for late comers as our bookings work on back to back time slots.We suggest arriving at least 30 minutes prior to your booking time to allow enough time to kit up and be briefed.
What should I wear?
We suggest you wear loose fitting,comfortable clothing that covers as much skin as possible.Closed in shoes are compulsory and long pants are recommended as we supply a jacket only.
Can I bring my own ammo?
Unfortunately not, only paintballs and BB’s bought at the rand may be used in the rental guns.
Do paintballs hurt?
It’s very common for players to feel a slight sting, similar to a firm flick on the arm. The pain is minor and typically fades quickly. While most hits are insignificant, a paintball can cause bruises and welts. The severity depends on the speed of the ball, the distance the ball travels, and where it hits your body.
