IPSWICH brothers Ben, Harry and Jack Carew are changing the way people think about paintball.

Their hard work as owners of Tactical Ops Paintball has scored them the top position in the Queensland Times Facebook poll calling for the Ipswich public to nominate the best new businesses in the city.

The centre has only been open for four months but already has a loyal base of fortnightly players and growing awareness of paintball's profile as a sport.

Harry said the inspiration for the attitude they take at Tactical Ops Paintball came from the brother's childhood polocrosse games.

"It was just one big family," he said.

"That's what we wanted to create here."
