WHAT IS PAINTBALL?
In 15 short years, the sport of paintball has become recognized as one of the world’s most exciting outdoor participation sports. Paintball is played in over 40 countries by millions of men and women of all ages and lifestyles. Whether homemakers or high-school students, professionals or retirees, all paintball players share in common a love for adventure and a strong competitive spirit.
Capture the Flag
Paintball is a combination of the childhood games “tag” and “hide & seek,” but is much more challenging and sophisticated. Although there are many different game formats, typically a group of players will divide into two teams to play “capture the flag.” The number of players on each team can vary from one or two, five or seven or ten or even up to a 100 players in the case of Paintball Bali’s field. The object of the game is to go out and capture the center flag and bring it back to your opponent’s starting point. While you are trying to capture the flag, you also try to eliminate opposing players by tagging them with a paintball expelled from a special airgun called a “paintgun.” Games run from 20 to 45 minutes, depending on which of the three fields are used at Paintball Bali and the number of players playing. Between games, players take a break to get more paintballs and have a snack or a drink while they share stories about the thrills of victory and the usually funny agonies of defeat. Win or lose, everyone has a good time and there’s usually the next game waiting for you.
A paintball is a round, thin-skinned gelatin capsule with colored liquid inside it. Paintballs are similar to large round vitamin capsules or bath oil beads. The fill inside paintballs is non-toxic, non-caustic, water-soluable and biodegradable. It rinses out of clothing and off skin with mild soap and water. When a paintball tags a player, the thin gelatin skin splits open, and the liquid inside leaves a bright “paint” mark. A player who is marked is eliminated from the game.
Paintguns, also called “markers,” come in a variety of shapes and styles (click here for GTF information). The GTFs used have power systems that use large refillable cylinders called “tanks” or “bottles” that give hundreds of shots before needing to be refilled. With our semi-automatic GTF paintguns, the first time you want to shoot you must cock the paintgun (usually by pulling back a cocking knob or handle), but after you shoot the first paintball the paintgun’s action will recock the paintgun for you; you simply squeeze the trigger each time you want to shoot a paintball. The international safety limit on the speed (measured in feet per second, “FPS”) at which a paintgun shoots a paintball is 300 fps. Paintball Bali adheres to this standard. We use a chronograph to test for speed limits, and all paintguns can be adjusted to shoot under the speed limit. A paintgun’s range is limited, too; even shooting 300 fps, at maximum elevation with barrel pointed up into the air, a paintgun can lob a paintball only about 50 yards.
For safety, paintball players always must wear goggles specifically designed for paintball to protect their eyes. Goggles must be worn during a game and at all times when a person is in an area where shooting is permitted, such as the target range or chronograph area. A protective facemask is mandatory nearly everywhere, and should be worn regardless. Paintball is a very safe sport as long as safety rules are followed. Insurance statistics have shown that paintball is safer than golf, jogging, tennis, swimming and many other sports. Paintball Bali referees are primarily on the field to enforce safety and game rules. No physical contact is permitted in the game, and players are ejected from games or the playsite for breaking safety or playing rules. Fields have boundaries, and a player who steps outside a field’s boundary is eliminated from that game.
Paintball is a sport played by people from all professions and lifestyles. It is a sport where women and men compete equally, and where age is not dominated by youth. Like a game of chess, being able to think quickly and decisively is what makes you a star in paintball. Intelligence and determination, not merely strength, speed or agility, are key to success in the sport. Paintball is a character-building sport. Players learn about teamwork, gain self-confidence and develop leadership abilities while having fun and getting welcome stress-relief. Increasingly, corporations are finding the benefits of having their staff and management participate in paintball games. Paintball is an exciting sport, and above all paintball is fun! It’s a chance to shake off your day-to-day responsibilities and rekindle your spirit of adventure. When the adrenaline starts pumping, you can’t help but love the thrill of the game!
