  Paintball FAQ   

Q: Is paintball safe?
A: Despite projectiles hitting you at over 200 miles per hour, paintball is actually one of the safest activities on the planet. According to insurance and independent studies paintball currently enjoys a .2 per 1000 participants injury rate. Basically, if you played 10 times a year then once every 500 years you would be hurt seriously enough to make a hospital visit. However, most of those visits are for injuries unrelated to the actual marker (for example, sprained ankles). In addition, this rate has been on a slow and steady decline since paintball's conception mostly due to better safety equipment. As long as you keep your mask on, play by the rules, and are careful outside of the field you will virtually assure yourself an injury free experience. Heck, it's even safer than bowling.
