Frequently Asked Questions AND IMPORTANT INFORMATION
Question 1: How much does it cost to play paintball?
Answer: You choose the Paintball deal to suit your personal budget so how much it costs is up to you.

Q2: How do I book a days paintball?
A: Call 07887 841306 or 01945 581358 and we'll talk you through the process
Q3: How old do you have to be to play paintball?
A: For normal Paintball 11 years or older, for low impact Splatmaster sessions 8 years up to 12 years old.
Q4: Can we just turn up on site and play?
A: NO you must book a specific date and pay the required £10 per person deposits first!
Q5: Do you do half day bookings?
A: Yes but they are extremely rare and very unpopular due to the limited game time. Half days are subject to a minimum group size of 10 players with a minimum purchase of 400 paintballs per player (See the prices page for details.)
Q6: What are the start and finish times?
A: Arrive for signing in by 09:30 no later, finish time is up to you but normally most people finish between 15:00-16:30. Please do not arrive late as late arrivals disrupt other groups and interferes with the smooth running of the day.
Q7: What should we wear?
A: Comfortable loose clothing and decent footwear, dress for the occasion and the weather, you're going to play paintball outdoors in a simulated battlefield environment in a woodland setting so it could be wet and muddy or it could be hot and dry as a bone, you're not going to watch Kylie Minogue in concert so wear something appropriate.
#GOOD FOOTWEAR CHOICE: Boots with ankle support like walking or work boots, football or rugby boots with blades are also a good choice.
#BAD FOOTWEAR CHOICE: Sandals, Crocs or flip flops (yes, we've had people turn up in all three).... trainers and flat bottomed canvas deck shoes like Vans or Converse are also next to useless to play paintball or Airsoft in.
Q8: What happens if it rains?
A: Dress appropriately or you'll get wet (see question 7 above)! Paintball is played in all weather conditions and rain often enhances the realistic battlefield experience.
We do not cancel games because its raining...or because you've heard or think it might rain or even snow for that matter!!!
Q9: Can I buy extra paintballs during the day if I run out?
A: Yes, once you've purchased your chosen deal you can purchase extra paintballs smoke grenades or frag grenades any time during the day.
Q10: Can we bring our own paintballs?
A: No, that's silly, It would be like taking your own food to a restaurant or your own beer to a pub. Try taking your own burger to a McDonalds and see what happens.
Q11: Can we bring our own food and drink?
A: Under normal circumstances you don't need to so no, we provide a lunch with all the deals except half day deals or either of the 300 paintball deals. Don't bring food or drink onto site as you will be asked to remove it due to added risk under the current situation.
Q12: What do we get for lunch?
A: Freshly baked jacket potato with the options of any combination of baked beans, a mild chilli con carne, butter and cheese.
Q13: Do you have personal lockers on site?
A: Yes, (£5 fully refundable deposit per locker is required).
Q14: We've bought some vouchers from ticket vendors/shop can we use them with you?
A: No, you need to ring the contact number on the ticket or voucher you have bought and book through them, if neither of our direct contact numbers of 07887 841306 or 01945 581358 aren't on the voucher then its not one of our direct vouchers.
Q15: Do you have Covid 19 Corona virus safeguards in place?
A: Yes, we have introduced even more antibacterial hand gel stations than we had before the pandemic including in all toilets and in the gun hut plus extra hand gel dispensers are available for each table if required. We have introduced social distancing measures and a cleaning disinfecting and rotor system for all used rental equipment, this basically means any equipment used on any given day including guns goggles overalls ambush hoods etc do not get used for a period of two weeks after they have been cleaned and disinfected, also no equipment such as paintball guns or goggles are shared on the day which is something we have always done anyway. We have never shared equipment between players on any given day, not even guns.
