Paintball has become so popular that it is played by millions all over the world making it a potentially profitable business entrepreneurs can engage in.

What you need to start a paintball business

You will basically need a large portion of land where your paintball business can operate and where your clients will play paintball games. You will also have to invest on paintball gears, equipment and supplies because a number of your prospective clients may not have their own paintball accessories and paintball gears.

Among the most important equipment that your spyder paintball business should have are masks, paintball guns and paintballs. The cost of a basic set of a paintball gear is around $100. Paintball business owners are also advised to have a portable trailer which can serve as their paintball business portable office and as a storage area for paintball equipment, paintball gears and accessories.

Start up cost and potential profits

You will need around $15,000 to start a paintball business. This start up capital will cover the amount that you will spend for the paintball equipment, the portable trailer, advertisement and land lease. You can reduce your spyder paintball business capital if you have a land that you can convert into a paintball field. You will earn from your paintball business by charging your clients a fee for a game.

Existing fee starts from $30 to up to $50 per person which will cover the payment for the transportation, lunch and game. Your paintball business can also earn additional income when players rent your paintball equipment and gears. Many paintball business operators also sell t-shirts, hats and similar items to paintball players who are looking for paintball game keepsakes.

Take advantage of advertising your paintball business through these items by printing on them your paintball business name and logo. Paintball business operators reportedly earn $20,000 to $30,000 annually but you can get faster return of your investment by marketing and advertising your paintball business to clubs, business organizations, communities and schools.

    First of all, the going rate is $10 per person to play on every field. Make sure everyone who is on the property signs a waiver form for release of liability. (Just in case they hurt themselves and have to go to the hospital, they will ask in the emergency room, where they got hurt at and would they like to make a liability against that person.) Make sure everyone signs the Waiver Form. Yes people will get hurt and if you're not insured and they also haven't signed one of these you could end up owning money for their accident. Or even their equipment if it gets hurt...well damaged. Look up "Paintball Waiver Form" in a search to get a good idea of how your waiver form should be. Next step, make one based off a few different forms that you find. Then have it checked by a Lawyer who should only find one or two corrections to be made. If they find more than that, the paintball business isn't for you and don't even jump into it. I own and run my own Woodsball field and these are the first things first here. The second thing is to hang fliers up at local paintball stores and also sporting good stores. Including gun shops and Army Surplus stores. Have business cards latter on if you find yourself magically bumping into potential paintball players. This will happen. Like the pizza man whom comes by. Alright, I'll proceed, before you start advertising, you must have your waiver forms printed out and a list of rules you will enforce for safety reasons on your field. Post your rules of safety that is to be followed for on and off the field. Have your Waiver Forms Stacked and pins so they can sign them. Hang your Fliers and slowly they will begin to come. You'll notice the one timers from the repeat business paintball players quickly, still treat them all with respect. Never start your price TOO LOW for the field fee; you can lower it during times of the year that seem fitting calling it a “discount" Okay? Always keep your price competitive with nearby fields, if you are the only one GREAT. If you are lucky to have a paintball store already near your paintball field and you don't really have the extra cash to buy equipment and you just decided they can bring their own gear, make sure you have labeled your Paintball Field as a Field only, advising them to bring their own paint and equipment. Your Profits are going to be slow coming anyway unless you have a very large amount of money to invest into this, or have foolishly taken out a loan. If your field is an outdoor facility, your business is going to only have its "moments" during the hot parts of the year, so you will want to sell beverages as well if possible or make them aware to bring a cooler full of drinks for themselves( NO Alcohol ). You will need to check your local areas laws on a vending license, zoning and business license. I have a lot more I could tell you about doing this cheap if you are starting your field with little or NO Cash. It is possible if you already have the land to use. If you have the extra land but need bunkers and bases for your woodsball field, scenario field or speedball field and cant pull off buying all the fancy stuff I can direct you cleverly and legally, (laughs)on how you can go about getting materials for such things. And free forms of advertising, email me at ringworm. paintball@gmail. com

    actually the going rate can be anything you want it to be depending on your ambition and the wealth of people around you.. at the end of the day i have people spending over $200 sometimes.. all you have to do is set up in a tourist area where people are inclined to pay a lot of money in order to have a good time.. but if you rely on regulars as your main source of income then you will want to have a much lower price range.

  • Jonathan B beginner adviser said on March 18, 2009
    There is a lot more cost in this business than most people think, but that also depends on the caliber of your park. I am in final contracts with the land owner for my park and lets just say to build a nice facility to get people to drive and hour to go to is not cheap. I have 12 acres and 7 fields going up. Lighted, netted, full scenario, and full pro shop. I know my business is a little more on the higher end of most parks but do your home work. Talk to your local SBA. They can give you business models, Income per household in your area, any information on grants (if available, not many are) and SBA backed loans as well as helping run numbers for you on what it may look like for you financially in your first few years.

    I've put up some business information for paintball, some great priced low cost paintball products and links to paintball company websites that offer things as well. That would give you an idea of cost. The place up the road from my field uses most of just one of those companies products. I chose not to but they went ahead and did, thats okay. So I got that place's link on my site. I made an online add to get paintball equipment even cheaper through me if you have a tight budget, also made an e-book. Covers Zoning, Insurance, Waiver Forms, Types of fields, Sizes, Financing etc. Basic information you need to know even before you get started. e-mail me at lowcostpaintballfield@yahoo.com

    i am considering on making me a business on paintball and in my opinion you will need around $15,000 dollars to start a paintball business. That if you don't have land and need to buy land. I live in Richton Mississippi and have over 160 acres of land. I live on a farm and have a building on this property covering most of it. it is perfect for paintball.

  • James expert adviser said on May 30, 2009
    Q: What do I need to start a paintball business?
    First, of course, you would need an area large enough for players to execute the game. Then you have to have the gears, suppliers and equipment for renting to customers who do not have their own paintball guns (markers), paintballs, helmets and masks.

    Regarding the game field, your choice of the surface is important. You must consider the advantage and disadvantage of each, in terms of maintenance, safety, convenience to players, and ease of cleaning. Indoors, you can have playing fields made of dirt, cement, carpet, sand, or filled with sawdust, or wood shavings. When talking about space in this sports, you can exercise your creativity in designing the game field. Explore non-traditional designs, for example something that is a combination of both indoor and outdoor fields.

    For more information on the sports, visit the Web site of the Paintball Sports Trade Association. The site has numerous useful information for paintball enthusiasts and prospective paintball business owners, including safety and outdoor standards, where to find fields, events and resources.

    Q: Where can I get the equipment for a paintball business?
    Ideally, you should get them where you could most likely purchase in bulk, which means at a cheaper price. This means you should go to manufacturers and wholesalers rather than to retailers, sporting goods store or specialty stores. However, sometimes this could be tricky as manufacturers sometimes refuse to sell directly to customers. To get a good lead as to where you could purchase paintball equipment in bulk, talk to as many paintball supply store owners and see how you can get in touch with manufacturers or wholesalers, if not maybe you can arrange a contract with the supply store that could lead to a discount. Explore also the possibility of ordering online.

The game is being played in Guam USA and Palau, our neighboring islands but not here in Yap and the rest of the Federated States of Micronesia.

  • blair said on February 2, 2010
    i started a paintball business three years ago. you would be ignorant to think you could start a genuine business for anything less than $25,000. first you have to lease land each month, then you have to pay for liability insurance if its going to be a public paintball course (and obviously it is). Next you will need to pay a specialized lawyer $200 to $400 dollars an hour to write up a waiver you must present to all customers to have signed before they paintball( for liability reasons). Then you will need to pay for monthly utilities (electricity). Advertising is a must. where i live it cost around $1400 to shoot a 30 second commercial and $28 for every 30 second slot you purchase (you will probably use 10-50 slots per week). then you will need to buy paintballs to sell to the customers (it cost $2800 for 1 skid of the cheapest diablo heat paintballs). And finally you will need to buy at least 10 to 20 sets of paintball gear for rentals (calculate it out to $145 per single rental gear). oh and you will need to buy co2 tanks, and filling stations to refill your customers co2 (they are expensive $800 to $2,400). these are vary basic numbers, and my start up cost for my business included much more money in loose end that added up quickly.

    G'day guys and girls. I live in Australia and Paintball doesn't seem to be as big over here, or at least, there aren't as many Fields as other countries. I am really interested in starting my own Paintball(And other ventures within the compound) business. I have plans drawn up(Roughly, but to scale) for P/B fields, both indoor and outdoors as well as the plans for my other ideas. I also have a general area picked out which is usually packed with tourists from all over the world and of all ages, but I haven't picked out any specific piece of land or town as yet. What i'm basically needing to know is... If there is anyone reading this forum, who would know the specific Laws, Licenses, and a complete list of 'Gear'(And pricing if at all possible) for Paintball operations in Australia? Yes, I understand I would need to buy or acquire the equipment in order to lay out the fields to their design so I am not concerned about that as it is another matter and nothing to do with Paintball licensing/laws. If anyone could please give me the information needed, then I can assure you that once my business is up and running, you will be the first to get a VIP pass(Details are still in the 'works' on that... ) :) Cheers guys

    hey from alberta, canada, and have a 0.62 acres plot in the very center of town.. looking to convert it into a indoor paintball. can anyone tell me some rough figures on how well indoor paintball does? im starting to think outdoor paintball is the way to go. heating cost, electrical, and a/c in the summer could add up. wouldnt need any advertising as there is hundreds of bypassers daily and connected off the busiest road in town.

    I have 7.5 acres of raw land in central Georgia that I am looking to turn into an outdoor paintball facility. I am looking for an operating partner with military experience to help design this course. I would be providing the land, legal services and facilitate the business licensing. The operating partner would be responsible for equipment and operations. This is a great deal because I am just trying to cover the mortgage on the land, insurance and taxes. Not interested in any profits from the business. I have 5 other businesses that keeps me good. Just trying to cover my costs for this land. The closest competitor is 60 miles away. I have a great design idea. If anyone is serious about this please contact me at cesaremammarella@gmail.com

  • Drock said on July 23, 2011
    Myself and 3 co-workers are looking into starting a small paintball shop up in our area. We live in a rural area with a population of about 30,000 spread over a few small cities. The only source of entertainment is a 2-screen movie theater and a bowling alley. We would run ourselves on salary/commission but our issue is finding a supplier to ship to us with reasonable rates. Any ideas?

    Springfield, IL. I've wanted to own my own paintball field for a long time now, however with the economy i'm still not sure if I can make it happen. I'm looking for pointers all over the web for how to fund, what is needed, etc. My goal is to have a woods and small city or something of that sort, where I can cater to paintballers, airsofters as well as Law Enforcement to come and practice clearing buildings/trailers/etc. I'm not a guy of any inheritance, I have my own problems just like everyone else in the nation, but I really want to fulfill my dream. Please Email me with any pointers as this is not a site I check, I just stumbled across it. ascroggin@gmail.com Thanks...
  • Brent said on November 10, 2011
    I am interested in opening a paintball field in the Bay Area Northern California. I am based in the burbs and the closest field is about an hour away. I think it could be a huge thing if I can get it to happen out here. I have land that I may be able to use. I am not sure if it has to be zoned to a specific thing or not. Also, I have done a lot of research on this as well, so I know about the insurance, waiver, and cost for my set up and merchandise/rentals. But I feel that it all sounds a bit too easy. What would I be missing? Feel free to email me at smitj.brent@gmail.com. Thanks in advance.

  • Regiwell Francis said on December 20, 2011
    Hi I am looking to start a paintball business.I have no experience in the business but it looks like lots of fun to play and I think people would want to play. I am on a Caribbean Island and I will be the first and only business. I need a complete pakage of everything that would be needed for a good operation. It might be good to get an employee who has experience to run the operation for me and who could advise to help make sure it is a successful operation. CO2 is expensive so I think compressed air would be a must. I have over 10 acres of land with lite vegetation which I could build structures to hide behind. Any web sites with companies for packages that could be recommended or sites for people seeking employment.

I'm hoping to start a sort of teenager, adult recreation business, consisting of paintballing, also. go carts, motorbikes, horses, car racing etc, also bush hiking, hunting, eeling, fishing, horse trekking and tramping. Maybe a weekend getaway with cabins. The thing is that I dont have the money to start this venture, nor the knowledge but id appreciate any advise, even better an overseas investor to input into this idea. Please email me if you are interested.
