Lock 'n load: we had an absolute blast at Paintball Heaven


We arrived for the morning slot, eager to get on the battlefield. Once we were all kitted, we sat down for a quick safety briefing.

There are about six fields offering bush, urban and concrete environments. After doing some target practice, it was game on! I could feel adrenalin pumping through my veins in each battle as I dodged flying bullets, returned fire and tried to out-manoeuvre snipers from the other team in order to grab a flag in the middle of the field, which is the objective. The field environments presented many obstacles and challenges, which forces you to work with your team and come up with strategies on the go. A referee from Paintball Heaven is always on hand.

Exhausted, we set up a braai in their entertainment area whilst having a chat with Elizabeth Silli, the owner of Paintball Heaven.

Elizabeth, having been at Paintball Heaven for the past 14 years, represented the South African team at the European Paintball Federation Women’s World Championships in May this year. She and her team beat Russia in the finals and our ladies in green and gold left Prague as the World Champions!
