In fact, paintball has one of the lowest injury rates of any sport in the United States. We provide safety equipment and referees to make sure your paintball outing is as fun and safe as possible.
Paintballs are not made of paint, they are primarily gelatin and vegetable oil, nothing you haven’t eaten before:). Paint will completely wash out of whatever you decide to wear, but we still recommend wearing old, loose fitting clothes. Feel free to wear layers so you can take some off if you get too warm.
