Hyper tubing and barrels surround an empty school bus in the centre of one of Sherkston Paintball's four woodland fields, while a two-storey tower stands tall among a huddle of lower-slung structures in another. Players can navigate through medium to thick brush in the aptly named Brush Field, or ambush the Attack & Defend field's 100-foot-long fort, which hinders blitzes with walls reaching more than nine feet and a tower missing a princess with scalable hair. Alternately, bunkers are the only obstruction on a new speedball field that's surrounded by a seating area for spectators.
Along with outdoor bouts every Saturday and Sunday throughout the year, Sherkston Paintball hosts annual events and tournaments including an epic Trailer Park Boys-themed battle. Players can also get the most up-to-date gear at the fully-stocked, on site pro-shop.
Flagswipe Paintball's 20,000 square feet of indoor space hide mask-clad players behind 49 bunkers and numerous padded pillars. Its green-turf floor is padded with an inch of polyfoam, ensuring that players can tumble, leap, and slide without hurting themselves. Outside, a woods-ball field exhibits a Vietcong theme, where jeeps, tanks, and villages of huts shield combatants, and watch towers allow players to let down their long, golden locks for teammates to climb. Along with traditional paintball, the facility also hosts airsoft and laser-combat matches.

Flag Raiders ensures fierce competition with multiple outdoor fields that are marked by a variety of obstacles, terrains, scenarios, and setups. Paintballers and their friends can traipse through an urban cityscape, firing colourful orbs past buildings or over six full-size cars while dodging stern jaywalking cops. On the turfed speedball pitch, prowlers quickly take cover behind inflatable obstacles and advance before getting splat tagged.
Under new management, and celebrating its grand re-opening, The Paintball Arena is once again filled with the sounds and splatters of paint-filled combat. In the village, paintballers slink through 16-foot-wide streets and pop off rainbow-coloured rounds, ferretting opposing players out from behind wooden structures. The village is one of the indoor fields at The Paintball Arena’s 42,000-square-foot facility. The arena also houses a speedball court for fast-paced games of reactionary strategy. Referees monitor all matches and oversee games of Zombies, Capture the Flag, Protect the Castle, and more. After splatter-tagging friends, teams can retire to the second-floor lounge, replete with private booths and tall windows that overlook the paintball battlegrounds.
Operation Milsim Paintball equips sharpshooters for four hours of weekend walk-on play on its 10 acres of outdoor fields. Pretend-mercenaries of all skill levels arm themselves with premium markers, air tanks, masks, and hot air balloon exit strategies before charging onto three fields dubbed TacTown, Bush, and OAS. There, players evade pigment-projectiles as they dodge behind stacks of tires, plywood structures, and abandoned cars, while referees maintain clean, safe games in adherence to Operation Milsim's rules and regulations. Visitors can restock their paintball palettes for an additional cost ($40 for 500 rounds) and check out the company's FAQs before arrival to enhance their experiences.
