Want to play Paintball as a sport in Victoria?

Have you played paintball and since fallen in love with the sport? Here is a helpful guide on how to get started on becoming a regular paintball player. (as of Aug 2023)

 

Step 1: We recomend coming to one of our monthly club days, these club days are casual days where we get together and have a bit of fun with some structured games, some food and have a lot of fun. We have lots of extra paintball markers and equipment that we can let you borrow for the day. Click here for our next club day or event.

Step 2: Sign up to become a member at your paintball field of choice, contact the field and they will help you with this process. This part is essential if you want to purchase your own paintball marker. You only need to be a member at one paintball field.

Step 3: Work out what equipment you want, this may seem daunting and difficult but dont stress, attend club days and speak to players, ask questions and even ask to try other players equipment as most of the time they will be more than happy to show off their stuff.
*It is worth noting that you do NOT need a lot of equipment, you can hire or borrow equipment on the day. We do recomend you atleast purchase a good quality paintball mask*

Step 4: Play Paintball! You do not have to play often, only play when you want to but you are always welcome to join us on any club day or event.

*Optional* Step 5: If you want your own paintball marker you will need to book in with your field of choice and complete the 'Paintball Marker Safety Course' as well as get a letter from them saying you are a member at that field.
