Use of Unauthorised Firearms at Paintball Fields
It is a shame that our industry can be damaged by the apparent reckless use of unlicensed Prohibited Firearms at paintball facilities.
Advertised on a Facebook fan page is this picture that is clearly in breach of the regulations on prohibited firearms as stated in the Firearms Act, schedule 1, section 7.
Reducing the National Minimum Age for Paintball
One of the main initiatives of the AUPBA is to standardise the minimum age for paintballing across Australia. Why is it that 12 year olds in Western Australia can safely and happily play paintball however in Victoria you need to be at least 18 years of age?
Differences in Australian law prevent teenagers in most Australian states and territories the opportunity to enjoy a day of action-packed paintball.
AUPBA 5-star Paintball Centres
With paintball increasing in popularity, we want the public to know exactly what they will receive when they visit a paintball centre. There are vast differences in the quality of paintball centres in Australia and that’s why we’ve devised a system that issues 5-star ratings to the best paintball centres in Australia.
This initiative provides greater information to the public so they can make more informed decisions as to where they will enjoy their next paintball outing. This also pushes all paintball centres to improve their facilities, which at the end of the day improves the paintball experience for the customer.
