Will the paintball mask I am required to wear fit over my
Insurance regulations require all players to wear a protective
paintball mask when on a paintball playing course. That is NON-NEGOTIABLE!
Wearing glasses UNDER our paintball masks presents several problems. First, if
you wear glasses we're sure you've experienced your glasses "steaming up" or
"fogging up" in certain environments (like after a shower in a steamy
bathroom?). This phenomenon is increased when you are wearing a paintball mask
over your glasses, running around the woods playing paintball, overheating your
Secondly, paintball masks do not readily fit over the new 2017
style large frame glasses. If you CAN get the mask over your glasses, you might
experience discomfort as parts of the mask press your glasses against your nose
NJ Paintball Club STRONGLY suggests that you wear contact lenses
if you have them, instead of glasses. If you MUST wear glasses, bring a pair of
small frame glasses instead of large frame glasses and invest in some anti-fog
treatments or wipes!

Yes. NJ Paintball Club’s adult staff will supervise your party
and games at all times! From the minutes you arrive, to the minute you depart.
I have never played paintball before. Will someone teach us?

arrive, answer your questions, give a detailed orientation on the safety
regulations and rules of the game, and then teach you the proper way to handle
and operate your paintball equipment in our target range before you ever start

No! At NJ Paintball Club you will be playing a structured game of
paintball, with rules, regulations, a delineated "playing course", objectives,

How do we tell who is on which team?
NJ Paintball Club supplies each player with a colored armband.
Red and blue armbands are frequently used to designate red team players from
blue team players.
Could we get lost in the woods?
No! NJ Paintball Club’s playing courses are each totally
surrounded by a bright yellow, 3 inch wide "border tape" at waist height
(similar to crime scene barricade tape). Our adult staff take a headcount of
your party before, during, and after each game to insure all are present.
Are there wild animals?
NJ Paintball Club is situated on 100 acres of heavily wooded
mountainous rural terrain. All animals native to the Northern New Jersey forests
are present. Chipmunks, squirrels, birds, turtles, fish, frogs, insects,
groundhogs, raccoon, deer... most animals have learned over our 30 years of
operation to run far away from humans once they hear our guests arrive, start
playing, shouting, and laughing. In 30 years of operation, we have never had a
negative encounter with any of the natural wildlife that lives in our woods!
Do I need to fill out paperwork?

Can we drink beer?
Rule of thumb: alcoholic beverages don't go together with
paintball guns and running around in the woods, as you might imagine! You'll
need all your faculties playing paintball at NJ Paintball Club!

permitted to play, and might be escorted off our property by the police!

If I lose jewelry or my smart phone in the woods, can I come up
and sweep the woods with a metal detector while your site is closed?
No. If we are closed, we are closed. No one is permitted on NJ
Paintball Club's private property while we are closed.
Secondly, we have been in operation for 30 years, and our land
was farmed for 300 years before that! Every square foot of our woods has some
metallic object, rusted nails, pieces of rusted machinery, whatever, buried into
the dirt! Your metal detector will constantly be sounding the alarm!
Lastly, each of the playing courses you were on when you lost
your jewelry or whatever, as well as the parking lot and the trails to and from
the playing courses, cover over 50 acres! That's 50 football fields! The odds of
you finding your lost object are astronomical, even if you were willing to spend
40 to 80 hours sweeping with a metal detector!
Can I use my own gun and equipment?
We VERY STRONGLY recommend that you use NJ Paintball Club
paintball guns, which are cleaned, oiled, tested, safe, and guaranteed to be in
working order, and will be replaced by our staff quickly if they malfunction.
If you'd prefer to use your own paintball gun, first you must
request and receive permission from us so that we can insure that your gun meets
