In ancient battles, combatants used war paint to intimidate enemies, inspire cohesiveness, and get in touch with their feminine sides. When it comes to paintball, however, being covered in war paint is less desirable. Give your friends a fresh paint job with today’s deal: $28 for a full day of paintball for one person at Nashville Paintball, a $47 total value. It includes equipment rental, all-day air reloads, 250 paintballs (purchase additional paintballs for an extra fee), and more action than a blindfolded bullfight.
Located just outside downtown Nashville, the facility boasts four fields fit for splattering. Regular hours are Saturdays and Sundays from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m., so get there at the strike of 10 to maximize your Groupon. Feel free to bring your faux weapon and paint of choice. However, if you choose to rent one of Nashville Paintball's markers (that’s paintball speak for “gun”), you must use its paint as well. Renters and beginners need not be wary of the provided equipment. The rental markers are top of the line, ensuring there is no out-gunning that would unfairly affect the outcome of the game.
Gather a group of friends to play out a colorful Street Sharks vs. Dino Vengers battle royale in the fields at Nashville Paintball. It’s safer than golf or tennis and more team oriented than a gentlemanly duel. Balanced teams are created pre-battle, so solo artists can connect with a backing band of brothers and sisters on the field of play. If you’ve already established your dominance in an online arena, perhaps it’s time to put your virtual abilities to the test. Show the video-game naysayers that there are practical, real-life applications for skills acquired through gaming by dishing out a bona fide paintball decimation.
Paintballers on pbreview.com share their thoughts on Nashville Paintball:
- This was the first time I had played in many years. I used to play tourney paintball many years ago and found myself wanting to get back into the sport. The owner and staff was super nice and helpful. He sat down with me for a bit and explained how the sport has changed and helped with my new marker. They have 4 fields and all are a great play. – rwoodard

Talk the Talk, Stalk the Stalk
Paintball pros know that it’s not enough to be invisible, silent, and deadly (any store-bought ninja can bring that to the table); you also have to have technical expertise and be able to efficiently communicate your tactics in the field of combat. That’s why Groupon has put together this glossary of paintballing terms to prepare you for your first foray into splatterdom:
- Marker: The primary piece of equipment in the sport of paintball. Often referred to incorrectly as paintball gun, or super-correctly as Lucille.
- Clustering: When the paintball team pauses action to enjoy a handful of Clusters: the caramel-coated, peanutty-popcorn snack that’s great for kids, and paintballers like it too!
- Ghost: A participant who remains in play after being tagged out, due to unfinished business regarding the mysterious locked chest in his attic, a missing will rolled up inside a bedpost, and the preternatural hunches of a precocious 10-year-old girl with an adorably oversized magnifying glass.
- Newbie: Any player who is less than eight months old.

The rustle of feet swiftly move over grass as quick successions of pops echo off the sides of gutted vans and cars. Over the splatter of shots fired, orders are yelled out as teams communicate strategy. These sounds are music to the ears of all players that patrol the hallowed grounds of Nashville Paintball. The five fields present visitors with obstacles such as inflatable Xs, large industrial piping, and old cars targeted by paintballs of games past. While Nashville Paintball's fields received an expert's touch when designed, they cater to players of all levels, even offering games arranged specifically for beginners. Keeping the sport even more accessible, they rent paintball markers and gear and don't check for abstract art degrees at the door.
