Paintball is a fun and safe activity, and participation will not lead to major injuries, if simple safety precautions are followed. In fact, studies based on severe sport-related injuries that lead to emergency room visits show that paintball is safer than bowling.
Most paintball facilities require that the minimum age of all players be 10 years old on the date of play. Often times, the age requirement has to do with insurance coverage. If you have players who are not quite 10 years old, there are other alternatives for younger players that offer the same thrill as a game of paintball.
Obviously, you’re excited about it, right? But maybe you’re wondering what your experience is going to be like. Don’t worry, you’re not the only person to be a little unsure about what to expect. We understand.
