1. Does paintball hurt?
This is the first question asked new players usually ask about the sport. Getting hit by a paintball typically “stings” or “smarts” a little, especially if shot inside of 20 feet and directly on your skin. Typically, this will result in a small welt or bruise. The best comparison for what it feels like is snapping yourself with a rubber band.
If this bothers you, you can wear extra protective padding, such as gloves, chest protectors and neck protectors.

8. Paintball history
Played first in June of 1981, paintball is a relatively young sport. Between the first idea of paintball 1977 and its eventual creation in 1981 three men by the name of Bob Gurnsey, Hayes Noel, and Charles Gaines worked to create the sport. The idea was to produce a stalking game that would challenge the participants to survive in the woods effectively escaping from other huntsman
The original game, played in Sutton, New Hampshire, was based on the “capture the flag” game. Twelve players searched throughout an 80-acre piece of land for 12 flags of the same color. Richie White, a forester from New Hampshire, was the first to gather his flags and became the winner of the first ever paintball games.
