- How many players do we need for a game?
To reserve a game you need at least 10 players. Sometimes you can join another team. The maximum recommended number of players is 50.
- What age can one start playing?
- Face-to-face/bilateral fighting is permitting starting with the age of 13, but we also offer special activity for kids aged 6 to 12.
- What clothing should I wear to a paintball game? Does the paint come off the clothes?
- Sportswear is recommended. Sturdy shoes are a must.
Each player gets an overall to protect his clothes. At times the paint may get underneath the overall, but the stain comes off in the first wash – if you make sure to wash it the same day.
- Does it hurt when I get hit by a paintball?
- It depends. Although the players wear safety jackets and protective masks to protect the back, abdomen, ribs, neck, face, eyes, ears and so on, it sometimes happens that a player shoots at too close a range – which is against the safety rules and against the referees’ directions. Shooting at a range closer than 6 meters is liable to cause bruises on arms and legs. A player shooting at close range will be barred from the game and his team may also get a penalty.
By the way, many players around the world claim that the chance of getting bruised adds to the feeling of "real battle". We are even considering introducing to the website a column where our clients can exhibit pictures of their most picturesque bruises along the lines of "The Mark of the Month".
- How long is the game and how is it played?
- The game is designed for about two hours (including instruction, getting equipped and returning the equipment). Net playing time in the field varies from team to team and depends on the players’ conduct during the instruction and in the course of the game, the amount of paintballs and on other factors. An average net playing time is between 50 to 90 minutes. The game is divided into rounds. Each round is between 5 and 15 minutes depending on the assigned task.
The teams take up positions at the opposite sides of the field and the game is conducted according to the scenario chosen for the particular round. A player hit and marked by a paintball is out of the game and goes to the casualties room and at the end of the round "comes back to life" for the next round.
- Is it better to play during the day or at night?
- It is entirely up to you. The field is well-lit, so that there is no problem playing after dark.
- How do I reserve a game?
- Reservations are made by phone. It is recommended to reserve a few days in advance, to make sure the field is available.
- What do we do if we do not have ten players?
- Contact us and we will endeavor to join you to an existing team. Note it is not always possible to join other teams. It is always best to put together your own team (though it does not necessarily mean you will be by yourselves in the field). Usually, a team of ten players plays against a similar-sized and -aged team.
- Can we get the field reserved for just our team?
- To do this you need to have a group of at least 20 participants and to provide a credit card number to secure your reservation.
- Do we get a different price because we come as a team?
- Sorry to say it – no. Paintball is a team sport and we only work with teams, not individuals. Therefore, the prices are quoted for each person on a team. However, we do offer special deals, and members of the Club enjoy more special offers – you are welcome to join.
- How many paintballs do we need for a game?
- Each player uses a different amount of paintballs. Some fighters use 50 paintballs, with care, while for some others 3000 is not enough. Typically, 60 paintballs do not suffice for a full multi-scenario game, and an average player uses from 75 to 150 balls per game.
- Do girls play paintball?
- Why not? About a third of our visitors are women. There is an opinion in the world of paintball that a female player is more efficient in the field than a male because she is not compelled to project a "macho" image and therefore does far fewer stupid things. However, paintball is not good for pregnant women.
