Paintball has captured the attention of enthusiasts all over the country. Since the first organized paintball game in New Hampshire in 1981, the growth of the sport today has reached the level of professional play with 30 teams competing in the U.S. alone. The game is played indoors and out, depending on local weather conditions and the time of year. Like all sports, of course, paintball comes with risk of injury. If you operate a paintball facility, you will need good paintball insurance to protect your company against liability risks.
