What is paintball

Paintball is an adventure sport that has been played throughout the UK for over 25 years. Originating in America, paintball is a strategic game that uses gas-propelled markers to fire small gelatine-skinned paint pellets at opponents. Paintball has developed exponentially, both in popularity and technology, since it’s humble beginnings in the early 1980s.

Paintball is an adventure sport that has been played throughout the UK for over 25 years. Originating in America, paintball is a strategic game that uses gas-propelled markers to fire small gelatine-skinned paint pellets at opponents. Paintball has developed exponentially, both in popularity and technology, since it’s humble beginnings in the early 1980s.

Today paintball is considered to be among the fastest growing sports in the UK, with over 1,000,000 new paintball players each year. Due to the rugged nature of paintball, protective goggles are necessary throughout the game and various safety guidelines are implemented to ensure the safety and comfort of all players. Other protective equipment available at Delta Force includes full-length combat suits with padded collars, body armour and armoured gloves, although these are not compulsory.

There are now over 100 paintball centres throughout the UK hosting paintball games for males and females of all ages. While the pioneers of paintball were cattle farmers that used paintball markers to mark their stock, paintball enthusiasts today come in many shapes and forms, including corporate groups, birthday parties, individual events, school excursions and even stag and hen parties. Paintball has truly developed from a low profile hobby played by few to a highly recognised sport that is played around the globe.
