Any place where you setup targets to practice marksmanship  (with possibility of death if entered) should be a range.

But maybe they are tying to pattern it after golf where the facilities and greens and whatnot are tagged as golf=*


Paintball would be... More similar to a pitch, as it is a team sports area, often setup with man made barriers for play. 

Some are large "wild" areas, but is a designated area with a border for play,

So it should be leisure=pitch+sport=paintball

Barrier=wall, log, stone and natural=wood can be used to micro-map a permanent pitch.
