Paintball Remains Ranked Third
By Bill Mills - June 2005

The Annual SuperStudy of Sports Participation is one of the most widely respected gauges of sports participation in the United States.  This study surveys 25,000 people from all walks of life across America.  Each year the Sporting Goods Manufacturing Association (SGMA) produces reports based on the Super Study, extrapolating the data to generate estimates of the total number of participants in various sports, how much is spent in those sports, and to spot trends useful to those in the sporting industries.

A lot of heads were turned in 1998 when Paintball was moved out of the shooting sports category and into the extreme sports category of the survey, and then again in 2001 when paintball overtook mountain biking to rank third.  

Survey numbers from 2004, considering the US Population aged 6 and over keep paintball ranked as the third most popular extreme sport with 9.6 million people people having played at least once during the year.  Paintball still ranks behind skateboarding (11.6 million) and inline skating (17.3 million) but ahead of artificial wall climbing (7.7 million) and snowboarding (7.1 million)

What is more impressive is how the numbers compare to more traditional sports.  According to a recent release from the SGMA, America’s pastime, baseball had 9.7 million participants in 2004, a number very close to paintball’s 9.6 million.  Tackle football is a sport that millions love to watch, but fewer like to play, with only 5.4 million participants reported in the study.  

Assorted reports based on various aspects of the 2004 Super Study of Sports Participation are available from the SGMA.

KevDawg's Kool Review

From: Paintball Toxicosis in Dogs By: Caroline W. Donaldson, D.V.M. From January 1998 to January 2003, the ASPCA Animal Poison Control Center (APCC) received 44 calls regarding paintball ingestion by dogs that subsequently developed clinical signs. In some cases, the dogs may have ingested as many as 500 paintballs at one time. Paintball ingredients vary depending on the manufacturer... In dogs, the most common clinical signs reported to the ASPCA APCC were vomiting (with or without paint) ataxia, diarrhea, and tremors. These signs occurred as early as one hour after ingestion. In two cases, the dogs were euthanized because their central nervous system signs were unresponsive to treatment; no other deaths were reported. The exact number of ingested paintballs required to cause clinical signs is unknown. In one case, a 90-lb (41-kg) Labrador retriever showed clinical signs after ingesting 15 paintballs. If you believe that your dog is a victim of Paintball Poisoning, please refer to - or direct your veterinarian to the following website: http://www.aspca.org/site/DocServer/toxbrief1203.pdf?docID=1521 Thank you, Wayne and Jackie Dollack
