About NJ Paintball Club, Inc.
The club was founded in 1986 as an informal group of players who would get together and visit various NY / Jersey Metro area playing fields on a monthly basis. We quickly learned that while each field had positive features, each also possessed their share of drawbacks- long traveling distance, lack of qualified staff, overcrowding, poor safety regulations, expensive fees, price gouging supply costs. NJ Paintball Club members gradually came to the conclusion that the only way to avoid these drawbacks was to operate their own Private playing site.
In spring of 1987 several properties were considered, with the Club's current site chosen for its privacy, unique terrain, and "fun" potential. By June 1987 two playing courses had been laid out next to the parking area and the Club began playing once a month. By spring of 1988 word spread, and a greater demand for playing time made us decide to open twice a month. By September of that same year the Club was operating every Saturday & Sunday from March through December, and weekdays by reservation!
We must be doing something right and we know exactly what it is.

What Is Paintball?
An exciting game invented in 1980 and played at New Jersey Paintball Club since 1987 by people just like you! A modern version of "Cowboys & Indians", "Hide & Seek", and "Tag" all rolled into one! Two teams of equal size and skill compete on a forested paintball playing course- the first team to capture their opponent's flag wins! Eliminate your opponents from a game by tagging them with a harmless, water-soluble, non-toxic, hypoallergenic, biodegradable "paintball". Yes, it might sting a little, but that's all the more reason not to get tagged! You'll never be out of the action for long though- because at NJ Paintball playing Club we play five or more paintball games in a half day session! 10 or more paintball games in a full day session!

How Was Paintball Started?
The game idea has always been around! As a child you might have played "cowboys & Indians" or had a "snowball fight". In 1981 some guys in New England got the fun idea of using the air pistols that the forestry service use to mark trees as a marking device for a "every man for himself" competition. The event was so exciting that a company was formed to market the idea and equipment- and with a slight change in game objective- two teams trying to capture their opponents flag- the game of paintball was born!
Are There Different Types of Games We Can Play?
Yes! There are several alternate game scenarios besides the most popular "Capture the Flag" format. At NJ Paintball Club, Inc. we usually like to start every novice group out playing a few games of "Capture the Flag" at first to help them get a feel for their equipment, our terrain, and playing strategies. After that, your referees will be happy to introduce you to alternate game scenarios
