Design An Indoor Paintball Field
Knowing how to design an indoor paintball field can create a place for fun and excitement. The sport of paintball is one of strategy and outright fun. Typically played in outdoor fields, an indoor spot to play will extend the playing season through out the year.
To design an indoor paintball field you will need:
- Turf or carpet
- Objects for hiding and bunker creation
- Have the space. Before the decision to create an indoor paintball field, be sure you have the space. The area should be at least the size of a basketball court or larger.
- Cover the floor. For an indoor paintball field, remember that falls occur. A concrete floor may result in injury. Cover concrete with rubber mats. Sponge will cause the floor to be too soft and inhibit running.
- Use artificial turf. The fake grass will allow the indoor paintball field to closely imitate its outdoor counterpart.
- Set up barrier walls. An indoor paintball field needs boundaries. A fence or wall may be created out of almost any material. These barriers will keep play contained and assist in keeping all teams playing by the rules as well as act as a safety feature.
- Put in bunkers and hiding spots. An open indoor paintball field will result in a fast game of who can shoot faster. In outdoor play, persons create bunkers and hide with natural items. For an indoor paintball field, artificial items will need to be added. Small pre-fab sheds, dog houses, fake trees and large boxes fill with concrete or other heavy material will create hiding spaces and barriers. A row of cones or small wooden wall also makes for simplistic bunkers.
