Outback Paintball Adventures @ Riebeek Kasteel
Location: Riebeek Kasteel / Hermon
Welcome to Outback Paintball Adventures!
Our field game is scattered with natural and artificial terrain, which players use for tactical cover. Game types in paintball vary, but can include capture the flag, elimination, ammunition limits, defending or attacking a particular point or area, or capturing objects of interest hidden in the playing area. Depending on the variant played, games can last from seconds to hours, or even days in scenario play.
Players are required to wear protective masks, and game rules are strictly enforced. Paintball is played with a potentially limitless variety of rules and variations, which are specified before the game begins. The most basic game rule is that players must attempt to accomplish a goal without being shot and marked with a paintball. A variety of different rules govern the legality of a hit, ranging from "anything counts" (hits cause elimination whether the paintball broke and left a mark) to the most common variation: the paintball must break and leave a mark. Eliminated players are expected to leave the field of play; eliminations may also earn the opposing team points. Depending on the agreed upon game rules, the player may return to the field and continue playing, or is eliminated from the game completely.

What is Paintball?
Paintball is a sport in which players compete; in teams or individually, to eliminate opponents by tagging them with capsules containing water soluble dye (non-toxic & biodegradable & water soluble) and gelatine shell outside (paintballs) propelled from a device called a paintball marker or gun.
The game is regularly played at a sporting level with organised competition involving worldwide leagues, tournaments, professional teams, and players.
