Nothern Italy?

I have looked at the list of fields and stores listed on this site, but the websites for anywhere in northern Italy are all in Italian. I am located on the military post in Vicenza. Is there anyone else around who knows where to go or has any information that may be useful for paintballing here?

I was stationed in Aviano from 99-02. I started a paintball field with a guy named Remigio Carlon (Check out APG from March 2002, I wrote an article about it for them).

The website, which is still in operation is www.paintballsports.it the e-mail address is info@paintballsports.it

There used to be a few guys that spoke broken english but I doubt they are still involved. My advice, go take a Conversational Italian course on base. It will make your experience in Italy SO much better. (The italians have a way of opening up if they see you are at least making an effort to learn the language beyond Grazie, Mille Lire, Prego and Ciao! Besides, you'll know if they're talking about behind your back)

Hope that helps,

-Sweeney

I've been to that website, but the English version of the page has been "under construction" for months. I've already taken the small Italian language course offered on post, and it mostly just helps me travel, shop, or order food. I can't understand anything on the webpage.

There's a telephone number on the site for Remigio. He speaks a LITTLE english.
I used to organize games for Americans when I was there but I don't know if it's being done by anyone now.

You might try contacting the MWR office at Aviano AB and see if they have any leads. Otherwise, call the number on the website, say "Voi giocarre paintball" and see if you can find out when and where the next game will be.

If i have my way, i'll be back in Italy soon and operating the field full time... But until that happens, Buona Fortuna!

Ciao,

-Sweeney

Might be a little late, but I started a small team in Vicenzia before d-bat moved to Germany. The paintball scene is very small in Italy. You may have to travel to other countries if your looking for something consistent.

Sorry I have been away for a while. Do you know something more than paradisepaintball? I found that they are only open by appointment and not for walk-on play. It's too difficult to organize a good group of people that all have the desire or gear to go.

I don't imagine you live or are stationed in Italy?
