Hey I'm 16 and curious if I'm to old to be playing paint ball I feel like maybe it's a 12 year old kind of thing and don't want to look like an immature **edited**git am I wrong or are most of you guys like 11?

LOL i started when i was 16 and played till i was 22 or so.  Just started playing again now at the age of 28.  I only really play rec ball and still see guys out there much older than myself.  

My kid sister just started and she is 22.


I will say one thing paintball was WAY easier at 16 lol.  I actually feel in better shape but work injuries from early in my carreer keep reminding me i aint as indestructable as i once thought.

not at all man im 16 and there are people way older at the paintball field i play at, i think it mainly depends on the place you play at because i play at CPX sports in Joiliet illinois search it if you want i believe it is the largest paintball park in north america, it has around 15 arenas and they are all huge, 
I play at CPX sports with my friends every few weeks so PM me if you want to maybe play? im 16 and they are too

For the record, a real man does what he enjoys regardless of if people are going to label him a f-got or not(for the most part). I'm 23 bro and most of the dudes at my field are around my age or older. It's generally not an exclusively 11 year old thing... Hell, if I recall most fields around here won't allow you to play if you're under 13 and aren't accompanied be a guardian.

Never too old! I'm 40 mysef and there are two team members on my team over 50. They are in insanely great shape and can outrun the younger guns. As for me, paintball + P90X keeps me fit for the field. :)
