Recball: Recreational Paintball

“Recball” players are free to use any type of paintball gear because no regulations are established on this subject (unless there is an event and only a certain type of marker is allowed). You can dress in pink, fluorescent green or military clothing, as long as you are comfortable and have fun while playing, that’s what counts.

The equipment varies more according to the player than the style they play. If you want to be fully equipped with many different accessories, you can however, if you would rather have the essential equipment only and play lightweight, it is also possible.

This type of game style is played with equipment, which resembles that of the armed forces, in addition to scenarios that are played out like military missions. This adds the real life aspect to the game, making it much more exciting to play. To do so, they are asked to wear military clothing and equipment, offered by companies such as Tru-spec.

Speedball is the competitive category in paintball. As in any competitive sport, the equipment used can make a big difference and impact your performance during a game.

The style of clothing doesn’t matter however, it is important to verify the color, as certain colors are prohibited, in order to avoid confusion with the paint splashes, depending on the color of the interior fill of the paintballs used for that event.
