Is Paintball Fun for Grown-Ups?

Adults are a big part of paintball and have fun playing it


Many a parent is begged by their child to go and play paintball. If they've never experienced the sport previously, then there is often some hesitation and evading on the parent's behalf. After all, why would an adult want to spend half their Saturday playing a kid's game?

Let me assure you that paintball is not a kid's game. Paintball is for people of all ages and is one of the most exciting sports you can experience. It is not only adrenaline packed and an adventure, but it is a great way to get some exercise and bond with your child.

Paintball is often played by children (typically teenagers), but if you go to any field you will see many adults that play the game. In fact, there are generally more adults than kids at many of the fields I've been to. This is because the sport transcends age and is, instead, an activity that everyone can enjoy.

If you are an adult and are worried that paintball might not be right for you, just take a few deep breaths and relax. While not everyone enjoys paintball, age has no effect on the matter. If you like exercise, excitement and adventure, give paintball a try.
