Unlike most other types of balls, paintballs are not meant to be dribbled, thrown, or strained through a tennis racket. Use paint-filled projectiles for their intended purpose with today’s Groupon: for $19, you get a full day of paintballing, including equipment rental and paintballs, (a $38 value) at Sledgehammer Paintball, located 40 miles east of Columbus.
With four distinct playing fields, Sledgehammer Paintball provides paint-splattering pistol-packers with an outlet to express their artistic aggression. Palette-popping triggermen are outfitted with a Tippmann 98 semiautomatic paintball gun, a mask, unlimited air, and a hopper packed with more than 200 paintballs. Put childhood quick-draw lessons to good use on the Western-themed course, return unfriendly fire in the Desert Storm scenario, or defend Fort Apache from a hailstorm of chromatic crossfire.
Marksmen looking for a more fast-paced body-bespeckling can scratch itchy trigger fingers on the regulation-size speedball field while seeking refuge behind inflated obstacles and inflated dancing tube men. More experienced emulsion enthusiasts are welcome to use their personal arsenal of equipment, but all players who wish to purchase additional paintballs must do so from the Sledgehammer store (500 for $15, plus tax).
