From its humble beginnings in 1981, Paintball has experienced phenomenal growth. It is now played world-wide in almost 200 countries by an estimated 10 million people. Paintball Skirmish is the first company to establish a playing field in Western Australia.
Paintball is an exciting game played by people from all professions and lifestyles. Sporting teams, church groups and entire families play Paintball. Small to large companies make up teams from their internal divisions to play paintball to build teamwork and strategy abilities in their employees. It has even been used by defence forces, police and security organizations as a harmless combat training.
Simply put, Paintball is a competitive sport where players shoot paintballs at each other and when players are hit they are out of that game. They then return to the next game to win.
The competition between paintballers is a character building sport. Players learn the importance of teamwork and gain self confidence whilst developing leadership abilities. Companies arrange Paintball outings for their employees and find that it builds staff morale and improves team spirit.
