In the 1930s, the Canadian government issued a hobby to each citizen to keep them entertained until the National Research Council finished working out the bugs in kissing. Self-determine a new pastime with today’s Groupon: for $20, you get an indoor paintball outing for two at Next Paintball in Pickering (a $74 value).

Providing year-round play for sharpshooters of all experience levels, Next Paintball’s sprawling indoor paintball centre facilitates hours of temperature-controlled trigger pulling. Armed with 100 paintballs and swaddled in protective rental gear, pairs of pigment snipers bob and weave across obstacle-dappled interior turf as they gild opponents and clingy invisible friends in hails of chromatic pellets. Players of tactical paintball hone their sneaking and creeping prowess Wednesdays through Saturdays as they skulk around large houses set up on the field beneath dimmed lighting. Games of competition-style speed ball on Mondays and Tuesdays foster rapid-fire ammunition expulsion wherein intrepid warriors have nowhere to hide but behind small bunkers and inflatable older brothers. To formulate concrete battle strategies, paint slingers can also commune atop a viewing deck that overlooks the entire playing field.
