Playing paintball for the first time?

Are you looking to prepare for your first few action paintball games? What are some of the things that you’ll need? These are all perfectly good questions and something that is well worth considering before you take to the field. Let’s get right to it!

What are some of the things that you’ll need for your first paintball game?

Now paintball is fun and easily one of the most exciting extreme sports out there. That said you do need to prepare a few things in order to make the most out of the experience. For one thing, you’ll want to get something suitable to wear; long sleeves, camouflage apparel and even full BDU’s for added protection. Paintball rounds can hurt and cause bruising; some protective clothing will lessen the blow and keep you safe in the field. More importantly, you’ll also need a good paintball mask to protect your eyes and face; you won’t even be able to set foot on the field without one and for obvious reasons. In any case, you’d want to make sure that you get protective clothing that is rated for paintball use.

Now that you’ve got your protective clothing all set, you can then start out with your basic set of paintball equipment - paintball markers, air tank, hopper, etc. Of course you can always play action paintball games in Rouse Hill, Rancho Murieta, Chirnside Park, wherever as most of them actually rent out basic paintball equipment. Better yet, borrow the equipment from a friend just so you get a good feel of the game first before actually buying your own.
