So you have never played paintball before and are a little nervous or unsure on what to bring? No problem, just go over our list below and make sure you have everything to be fully prepared!
1) What to Wear:
Long sleeved t-shirt or sweater, track pants or sweat pants (whatever you are comfortable in), running shoes, gloves (tighter neoprene preferred such as mechanic gloves) and a toque to protect your head. Most paintball parks will rent out jump suits at an additional cost to stay clean, but I would recommend in all situations you leave your new Gucci sweater at home! Although the paint is completely washable, you will want to wear older apparel that will not stop you from having a good time.
2) What to bring?:
Drinks, snacks, friends and a good attitude! All of the equipment you require will be provided. Most of the paintball parks will offer food and drinks at an additional cost, but feel free to bring your own!
2) Under 18 years of age?:
If you are under the age of 18, you will require a parent present at the time of arrival. Each participant is required to fill out and sign a waiver of liability (much like you would when you sign up for any sport). However, if you are under the age of 18, you will require a parent or guardian to sign your waiver. Most fields will allow you to download these waivers from their website, which your parent can sign and fill out before your day of play.
It is recommended you do not wear any jewelery while you are playing paintball. While some paintball parks offer lockers for rent, many do not. It would be a very good idea to leave any valuable items at home during your day of play.
Much like you can not bring your own food and drink to a restaurant, you are NOT allowed to bring your own paintballs to a paintball park. Paintballs must be purchased from the paintball park on your day of play.
