From humble origins as a kooky sport created by two friends in the US in the early 1980s, paintball has gone on to become a hugely popular global sport. With that increased popularity have come better safety regulations and equipment that have dramatically reduced the likelihood of injuries and accidents occurring.
But even though safety gear is worn, and the guns only shoot plastic pellets filled with paint, paintball still involves large numbers of people running around and shooting projectiles at each other. Accidents, though rare, can happen, in the form of trips, slips, projectile injuries and other incidents.
Public liability cover as part of a complete paintball insurance policy will protect your business from the financial consequences of any compensation claims brought against you. It is also a basic requirement for accreditation by the UK Paintball Sports Federation.
