I have been given an invitation to go paint balling. I am somewhat nervous as the people I have spoken to have said they have bumps and bruises and other injuries from paint balling. I am not sure if they are trying to scare me or just having fun! I will still go and do it. Have any other mums done it?

  • Some work colleagues of mine went to it. I was told about it afterwards, that If you were hit at close range it hit you pretty hard and yes you got some big bruises. A few staff were struggling around stiff and sore for a few days. I’m glad I had family obligations with an eldery parent that weekend and couldn’t go, especially as I bruise easily. If it’s cool weather you can wear parka type tops and pants under the overalls they give you to wear.


  • I understand it’s a fairly tough sport.


  • Have bought some padded tops! ;)


  • I know people who have done it. There is pain and bruises and mess…..but still lots of fun. Just try to not get hit :)

    • Sounds like move quickly and duck and dodge!
