I don't want to hear the flaming so save it. But this does come down to common sense. Below is a standard waiver. This waiver is like most and the corner stone of making sure the insurance company or the sponsor does not have a risk if a being sued. At the end of the day that is all that matters for either, and the insurance company is not in the business of providing a service or charity. Its to make money.
So the below is the beginning of the legal agreement you are making with a paintball place. This is the form presented to you, and as such you are agreeing to assume the risks inherent with the sport. If you, A) have never played, or B) a parent dropping off the kid---same form.
Where do you see, "at some point there might be guys playing airsoft, a totally different game on the filed, in the safe zone etc--but all good don't worry"
ASSUMPTION OF RISKS
1) I the undersigned wish to play paintball. I recognise and understand that playing paintball (hereinafter called the
“Game”) involves certain risks. Those risks include but are not limited to, the risk of injury resulting from possible

out of, connected with, or resulting from my playing the Game, including, without limitation, those resulting from
