Useful Tips and safety instructions

  1. Make sure you wear clothes and shoes which will be comfortable for running and suitable for such a game.
  2. Jackets, masks and equipment will be issued before the game begins. Make sure you follow instructions very clearly and armor yourself as instructed.
  3. Instructions will be given by an officer with all the rules and regulations involved. The game should be played accordingly.
  4. Paintball will not be played during the time of rain. The main reason for this is that, when the paintballs are wet, they tend to clog inside the guns which will require serious repair work to the guns.
  5. Leeches can be found on the premises. It is advised for you to wear leech socks or carry necessary repellent ointment if you are uncomfortable with this situation.
