Five Simple Tips To Stay Safe When Playing Paintball In Walla Walla, WA

Are You Preparing To Play Paintball In Pasco, Walla Walla or the Surrounding WA Area?
Remember These Helpful Safety Tips To Enjoy Your Game More

 

Whether you are interested in playing paintball in Pasco, WA or another area city, it is important that you keep a few things in mind to have the most fun while remaining safe. After all, if you are not properly prepared for your paintball experience, you could get hurt, or hurt someone else.

Here are five helpful tips for staying safe when playing paintball in Walla Walla, Pasco, Spokane or elsewhere in the WA area.

Tip #1: Dress Appropriately

While you certainly want to be able to move as freely as possible when playing paintball, it is also important that you dress for the occasion. Remember, paintballs are shot at a very high rate of speed and it can be quite painful to get hit by one; they also splatter paint after they land. Always be sure you playing with paintballs that are easy clean and non-oil based to avoid staining. Always wear long pants and long sleeves to keep your skin well protected. Layering your clothes to help soften the blow may also be a good idea.  Layered clothing like t-shirt covered by a jersey will allow you to remove your top cover on warm days between games. 

 

Tip #2: Wear Protective Gear

If you go to a commercial field to play paintball in Pasco, WA or the surrounding area, you will likely be required to wear certain types of safety gear. This makes playing safely easy. But if you are playing at home or at someone’s house, those same requirements don’t exist and it can be easy to play less than safe. Always be sure to wear a protective face mask and gloves to protect your hands and fingers, and possibly even a cup to protect the groin area.  Paintball pants can protect you from not only paintballs, but also tree roots and rocks when kneeling down out in the woods. 

Tip #3: Walk the Field Before You Play

Walk the field before you play to get an idea of the “lay of the land”. When you walk the field, you should look for….

  • Areas where divots of grass/turf have been removed
  • Slippery areas
  • Water-logged areas
  • Incline areas
  • Rocky areas
  • Objects that you can hide behind or otherwise use as part of your strategy

When searching for a place to play paintball in Walla Walla, Pasco, or elsewhere in WA, it is always a good idea to do a walk-through to be sure the field will meet your needs, desires and expectations.

Tip #4: Become Familiar with Your Equipment

Whether this is your first time playing paintball or your hundredth, take the time to become familiar with your equipment before playing. Similarly, be familiar with how well you perform with your equipment. If you aren’t good at running and shooting, for example, you might not want to do too much of it during an actual game. It may be best to save it for practice!  Remember to test your equipment before you arrive at the field on game day.

Tip #5: Know Your Limits

Those who are in good shape will be far less likely to get injured playing paintball. It is a good idea to get in shape before play, but at a minimum, do not forget to stretch before you play. But, either way, you should have a clear understanding of your physical limitations so you can avoid pushing yourself too far and causing an injury.

When in doubt, always buy your equipment from a dependable source and talk to others who are well versed in paintball.
