What is paintball?
At its essence, paintball is a competitive game played like any other competitive game, to win. It requires specific gear, (goggles, a gun/marker, pressurized gas, and paintballs) so you can safely shoot at others and be shot at.
Paintball is like a more challenging, high-stakes version of tag, hide-and-seek, or capture the flag. Beyond that, paintball is hard to describe. It can be played with as few as two people or as many as 500; a game can last 5 minutes or 24 hours; it's objective might be to take something, bring something, find something,or simply be the last person standing.
Depending on the field you play, tactics will vary as well. A paintball game will be different every time, but there's one for sure when you play at Western Paintball – Terry Hills: it's an adrenaline rush.

What should I wear?
Here at Western Paintball, we supply you with camouflage overalls for you to wear, we suggest you wear light-weight clothing underneath. Avoid heavy clothing as this will cause overheating, resulting in fatigue and/or heatstroke. (females are given free hire of chest protection).

I’ve never played before, will I be “out-gunned”?

What are paintballs made of?
A paintball is a round, gelatine capsule similar to large round vitamin capsules or bath oilbeads. The fill inside is non-toxic, water soluble and biodegradable, which rinses out of clothing with mild soap.

Can I wear glasses and play paintball?
Definitely. Glasses will fit comfortably under our JT Spectra paintball masks. If you do wear glasses, let one of our staff know and we will apply some anti-fog solution to your glasses. All of the goggles used at Western Paintball fields are equipped with thermal double lenses to prevent fogging. There's nothing worse than trying to play paintball in a set of single lens goggles that keep fogging.

OK, so paintball is “safe”, but doesn’t it hurt?
Honestly, sometimes.
It depends on where it hits, whether it breaks or not (balls that just bounce off tend to be more painful),and what kind of clothing you are wearing. All paintball markers at Western Paintball shoot under the legal limit of 300 feet per second and we strictly enforce a 3 metre "surrender" rule. Sometimes you won't even feel a hit. But even when a shot does hurt, it's usually just a quick sting the kind of thing you say "Ow!"about and then forget about a few seconds later. When the adrenaline takes over, you'll barely notice.

Is paintball dangerous?
On the contrary, paintball is one of the safest activities out there. Industry standards like approved paintball masks, thorough safety briefings for players, and limits on paintball gun velocities help prevent injuries. Also, Western Paintball – Terry Hills has highly trained referees to ensure that everyone follows the rules and stays safe, while having maximum fun!

How old do I have to be to play?
At Western Paintball, you must be at least 16 years of age to play with a parent/guardian on site (they do not have to play).
