Paintball is a sport which was made up in the 70’s / 80’s in the USA.
The idea came up from the guns that shot paint balls to mark trees and livestock, and thus creating the first Paintball field in the open air.
Furthermore, the first indoor field was created in Australia.
It expanded rapidly throughout Europe, although Spain had to wait until 1992 to see paintball, without much success. However, in 1994, some paintball fields come up with guaranteed success.
In 2005, Spain is almost equaled to France or England in the number of paintball fields, so that almost 200 can be counted scattered all along the country.
Currently, Paintball is at its very peak all over the world and numerous competitions, world championships, leagues, etc. take place along the year.
