What is Paintball in the UK ?
Paintball, paintballing or paint ball is a game where clients use gas-powered markers, or paintball guns, to shoot marble-sized biodegradable pellets containing coloured water-soluble dye, ‘paint’, at each other. Paintball games simulate military combat; players on one team try to eliminate players on the opposing team by shooting, with the paintball gun, capsules of paint at them.
Among the most common of the many variations of combat paintball games in Wales is a version of capture the flag, in which two teams of players attempt to seize each others’ banner without being struck by a pellet.
