Paintball, A Sport for Everyone
Paintballing is one of the most popular outdoor participation sports around. The good thing about paintballing is that everyone or anyone can play. There are no special requirements needed. Players can partake of the thrill paintball brings, regardless of race, age, gender and social status. The only requirement is a competitive spirit and the desire for adventure.
Paintballing combines the elements of two childhood games, tag and hide-and-seek. Given the nature of those two games, paintball is for people who want to experience the unique rush that participation sports gives, minus physical contact. The objective of paintball is to capture the flag of the opponent while protecting his or her own.
At the same time, players aim to eliminate their opponent from the game by shooting them and marking them with paintballs coming from paint guns. There are almost no limitations when it comes to the number of players, the limitation will only stem from the size of the playing field.
The game can be enjoyed by people from all walks of life, whatever lifestyle or profession. There are no discriminations when it comes to paintball. It is a competition where the quickest and smartest survive.
The chances of winning for each person are very fair, since old timers can find themselves being eliminated by neophytes. Men and women are equal in the game, and it is where the young do not necessarily have advantage over the old. To be an expert in paintballing, a player must be able to think quickly, with precision. Victory is not at all dependent on strength and agility.
What can paintball bring to its players? Primarily, it builds character. Through paintball, one can garner skills on teamwork, leadership and self-confidence. The sport provides fun and relief from everyday stress, without the danger of injuries and death.
This is a big plus for companies, and paintball is fast becoming a recommended activity for employees. Paintball gives the following benefits for the staff and management: morale boost, improved camaraderie, removal of the barrier between employer and employee, and enhanced group dynamics.
Paintballing is available to everyone, and serves as an alternative activity for several events. Groups from college sororities, fraternities, athletic teams and company staff and management all grab at the chance of playing paintball. It is featured as a central theme during birthday bashes, bachelor parties, or just simple gatherings. It is an activity that everyone can truly enjoy.

Here is a short description af each of them.
Dress of paintball
An absolutely crucial part of the paintball gear, without which no player or referee is allowed to step on to the field. We offer special masks equipped with double layer thermal glass, which is very durable and absolutely resistant to paintball hits. Also the double layer prevents the lenses from fogging — even for the most active of players. The mask's body is made of monocoque plastic, molded in a fashion to cover the cheek bones, ears and forehead.
Gelatin balls of 0.68 caliber are filed with color. The color is non-toxic, non-caustic, biologically decomposable and soluble in water. Have no fear of ruining your precious clothes — they can easily be cleaned simply with warm water. We offer only top quality paintballs compatible with the paintball markers that we use.
The paintball guns used by Paintballgame. Cz are all semi-automatic (one trigger pull — one shot) markers long developed by the Kingman company. We use only high pressure air as propellant as it offers better accuracy and tenderness towards paintballs than carbon dioxide. We are capable of providing alternative types of markers if specially requested.
We lend camouflage overalls which are ideal for paintball. They offer great body protection against paintball hits thanks to a tough and durable material. Plus an additional neck shield reinforcement grants very good neck protection. Off course you can bring your own clothing — good old camouflage pants or a boiler suit will do. It is important for the clothing to be made of tough fabric and you should not be afraid of getting it dirty.
Paintball gloves are another advisable protective element. They are distinguished by a plastic crest with reinforced protective elements on palms and fingers. You can choose between gloves with or without fingers. It is possible to use other types of gloves as well.
The vest offers extra body protection, even though most players do not use it. If you wish to borrow a vest, do not forget to mention it in your order.
Footwear Quality footwear is very important for paintball. We recommend footwear with a good grip and plenty of ankle support when playing in natural terrain, while lighter sneakers with a non-slip sole are ideal for sports ground paintball. Because of hygienic reasons, shoes are the only part of the paintball equipment that we do not offer.
Rules in Paintball
Paintball actions offer many types of rules, so even many hour games at our fields will be entertaining for the whole time. Our skilled organizers will adapt the game to your wishes so you will have a chance to try really everything, what are our fields offering
Team death match
Players are divided into two groups. The game is started at organizers command. Players are starting from their position and they try to hit all enemies by paintball shot. The game ends by „killing" the last member of one of the teams or by the time limit expiration. This kind of game is used as a warm up for further action.
Capture the flag
The basic cooperation is necessary in this game type. There are two equal teams again, which start from the opposite sides of the game field. In the middle of the area, or at the strategic spot is placed a flag — capturing it is the main quest of this game. The game starts on organizers command and all players try to reach the flag as fast, as possible (or at least faster than enemy) and carry it to the starting of the opposite team. In this game type is the most important ability to adapt to the changing situation and coordination of particular team members. The game ends by dropping the flag by the starting position, or by elimination of all enemies.
Two flags game
It is more difficult version of the Capture the flag game. It is not a simple and fast movement forward, it is necessary to think about defense too. Goal of the game is capturing opposite flag and carrying it back to own starting position. Offensive tactics has to count with appropriate defense of own „base". The game ends by bringing opposite flag or by elimination of all enemies.
Fighting for the building
Organizer chooses one third of players, who will become defenders and their goal is to hold the „fortress" during the time limit. The rest of players attack the building and try to eliminate all defenders. The game ends by expiration of the time limit, or by elimination of all defenders.
It is the special game type of the Benesov area. It is played on the field with square base where are all the barriers built symmetric to the central spot of the field. Teams are split into halves and start from opposite corners of the field, so they are in the clamping of the enemy from the beginning and they have to defend them self from two directions. Goal of the game is elimination of all enemies.
Two teams are made and they start from opposite sides of the field. From one of the teams is chosen one member — the VIP, who gets the reflective vest and becomes the main target of enemy. As a VIP he has very important mission — he has to survive! And go through the field and gain its other side. Goal of his enemies is clear — to eliminate the VIP for any price, if they succeed, they win.
This game type introduces players into war history and brings thoughts, which maybe had soldiers during napoleon wars. Two teams form the lines in 30 meters distance. From that moment all the players have to stay still and copy organizers commands. It is forbidden to duck, jump or skulk anyhow. On the command FIRE! All players shoot one paintball. All players, who are hit, are „dead«and go aside. On the command STEP FORWARD! All alive players make a step forward. The game continues until all players of one of the teams are eliminated.
This game is made for extra hard players with smoothly masochistic inclination. On organizers command the game starts where all players shoot on everybody else, until they want to stop. The hit is not eliminating player out of the game, only the fear of more pain does. If player doesn't want to continue to play, he leaves the field. The last player, who leaves the field, is the winner.
Different scenarios drag into the story as movies, or videogames do. Action is managed by skilled organizers, who guide through the scenario made of several quests.
Team spirit is a special action for companies, which is focused on team cooperation and unites team of co-workers.
