History of paintball

Paintball is the most widespread name of this modern adrenalin game. The concept of paintball is as ancient as humanity itself. Which generation has not taken part in snowball fights during winter and mud ball fights in the summer? The modern age altered the technical possibilities of this game and paintball has become an international sport discipline for adults.

The beginnings of paintball can be traced back to Australia over some decades ago. The Australian shepherds started using airguns loaded with paintballs to mark and keep track of their huge herds of sheep. Later this invention spread to the USA, where cowboys became probably the first participators of paintball gunfights.

The first practical utilization of paintball started when it became widely used in the army for the purpose of training special forces units in realistic simulation of firearm fights.

After being widely exploited in the army, paintball returned once again to the civilian domain, this time as a sport discipline.

The first official paintball tournament took place in 1981 in New Hampshire, USA. Since then paintball has spread throughout the USA, Canada, then Australia, western Europe and Japan. Paintball is being played in Czech Republic since 1992.

Paintball has a very similar history to those of sport disciplines which formerly belonged into military training or art of warfare as for example judo or fencing. Like these sports paintball also has much evolved from its Australian ancestry and nowadays belongs among other team sports.

Yet it still delivers the same amount of thrill and exciting moments!
