Whether you like it or not paintballing is one of the fastest growing and most popular sports in the world. It is a lot different from the everyday sports we are accustomed to and it’s also one of the most exhilarating field sports anywhere. Virtually anybody can enjoy paintballing and it is perfect for anybody who enjoys a challenge and a quick adrenaline rush.
There are many different games you can play on a paintball field but by far the most popular is capture the flag where the goal of the game is to capture your opponent’s flag while defending your own. Paintball is becoming increasingly popular and below are some of the biggest reasons why.
Paintballing is a group sport which calls for one group to completely eliminate the other group and most paintballers, for what ever reason, thoroughly enjoy blasting an opponent with paint balls and sending them on their merry way.
Paintballing also provides for thrills and excitement as players of the game are not only trying to eliminate their opponents but they’re also trying to survive and avoid being hit particularly the first time out when you don’t know how much being hit by a paintball will hurt.
On the paintball field there is no physical contact and this aspect makes it much more appealing to women as well as teenagers and some young children. Even the paintballs themselves don’t hurt that much if you are properly covered.
You don’t have to be physically athletic to play paintball. In paintball your biggest strength is your eyesight and your reaction time. Just because you’re new to the sport doesn’t mean you can take out an experienced player. Trust me there’s nothing like being a relative novice to the game and taking out the paintballing pro’s that show up with the newest paintball guns and decked out in camouflage gear.
And finally paintballing is great for people that like gadgets. If you like taking stuff apart, putting them back together and replacing parts to improve efficacy then paintballing is for you because paintball guns can be modified like nobody’s business.
Paintballing is a lot of fun and it’s a huge rush. There is a certain amount of risk involved but you don’t have to risk your life for major injury like many other extreme sports. I’m probably the best part of the game is that it is a group game and it brings people from all walks of life together to unite for a common goal… To capture the flag!
