Yes - At Kamloops Paintball Games players must be at least 10 years old to play .68 calibre paintball (regular paintball). We do however offer a low impact version of paintball (SPLATMASTER) for players as young as 7 years old.
Statistically, paintball is one of the safest sports. There are more injuries reported by people playing soccer, hockey, baseball and even bowling!
Kamloops Paintball Games is a fully insured, regulated field. Player safety is our number one priority. Every player must go through our safety session before playing. All players must wear a full face mask and all markers are set with velocity limits. Our referees are on field with you to make sure that all players are having fun and being safe!

We often hear players say "It doesn't hurt as much as I thought".
Getting tagged with a paintball is similar to a sting from a rubber band flick. The sting may last for a few seconds but then you are ready and pumped for the next game. The more into the game you are and the more you want to win the less you will feel it.
We also use high quality paintballs that use a special shell which allows the paintballs to break easily on impact.
Wear clothes that you don't mind getting dirty. We recommend that players wear comfortable clothing as you will be running/crouching down, and playing in a wooded area. Jeans, sweats or track pants for bottoms; long sleeve shirts for tops. Comfortable shoes are important; absolutely no heels or open toed shoes.
Our paint is water soluble and easily washes out when laundered. For those with smaller heads, we also recommend bringing a baseball cap to help the paintball masks fit better.
Unfortunately, we no longer offer coveralls.
It depends…Some players are trigger happy and blast through their initial 200 paintballs within the first game. Other players are conservative and make every shot count. On average approx 95% of players buy extra paintballs.
A few reasons why we recommend buying your extra paintballs at the start of your session:
No. This is a field paint only (FPO) facility.
Due to our insurance regulations, along with player safety, we do not allow paintballs that have not been purchased from our field. Any players found to be using off-field paint will be asked to leave the field. No exceptions.
Absolutely! But, we will inspect your equipment to make sure it meets our safety standards.
Every Sunday is Public Walk-On Day. You will play with whoever shows up at the field that particular day. Sundays are a mix of experienced players and beginners. Players are split up into teams and we strive to make both teams equal in experience level so that the games are fair. By far, Sundays are our best days of paintball.
Private bookings are booked both Saturday and Sunday and you play with only your group.You will be assigned your own private playing area, along with at least one referee for guided game play. With a private group booking, you set the pace. You can play with or without breaks, after all, it’s your party. We recommend a minimum of at least 6 players for a private booking.
Yes! We go rain or shine! Just remember to bring a change of clothes for the ride home.
We occasionally have wildlife show up at our field. Everything from the local feral horses, to our resident “mama bear”. Should you be lucky enough to have these beautiful animals make an appearance, please keep your distance and follow the instructions of our staff.
