Frequently Asked Questions AND IMPORTANT INFORMATION
Question 1: How much does it cost to play paintball?
Answer: How much it costs is up to you and each member of your group as you choose the Paintball deal to suit your personal budget. All deals and prices are published on the prices page of this website although for a guide the normal amount of paintballs used at any paintball venue around the country for younger players is around 400-600 paintballs and for adults its around 700-1000 paintballs.

Q2: How do I book a days paintball?
A: Call 07887 841306 or 01945 581358 or use the online bookings dairy. For online bookings you'll need book a minimum of five working days in advance for weekend games and at least two weeks in advance for weekday games. Do not book weekday games online if there are less than 10 players in your group, call instead . We can hold weekday games for less than 10 players but a surcharge or minimum spend applies!
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 and pay 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 500 paintballs per player. See the prices page for details. You cannot book half day games online so call us instead with any half day enquiries.
Q6: What are the start and finish times?
A: Arrive for signing in by 09:30 no later, finish time varies but is usually between 15:00-16:30 depending on the season. Please do not arrive late as late arrivals can disrupt other groups and interferes with the smooth running of the day.
Q7: What should we wear?
A: Dress for the occasion and the weather, remember 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 as dry as a bone, you're not going to watch Kylie Minogue in concert so wear suitable clothes and wear decent solid footwear with grip!!
GOOD CHOICE: Boots with ankle support like walking or work boots, football or rugby boots with blades are also a good choice.
BAD CHOICE: Sandals, Crocs or flip flops (yes it's happened, we've had all three) trainers and flat bottomed canvas/deck shoes like Vans or Converse are also next to useless in a simulated battlefield woodland environment.
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 snow for that matter!!!
Q9: Can we buy extra paintballs during the day?
A: Yes, once you've purchased your chosen deal you can purchase extra paintballs if you need them at any time.
Q10: Can we bring our own paintballs?
Q11: Can we bring our own food and drink?
A: Under normal circumstances there is no need to as we supply a full hot lunch with all our package deals plus snacks and drinks are available all day at very reasonable prices from the sales area along with all day complimentary Tea and Coffee. For groups booked in with affiliate companies like IPG/Delta force, Nationwide Paintball and UK Paintball lunch is available for £4.50ea. We also have a large drum BBQ you can use free of charge but you'll need to bring everything else, fuel, food, utensils, plates, knives, forks etc and of course a designated chef!!! Birthday cakes and party bags are all ok to bring.
Q12: What do we get for lunch?
A: Our famous freshly delicious baked jacket potato with a portion of butter, cheese, mild chilli con carne and baked beans and you can have any combination you choose.
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 direct with you?
A: No, you need to ring the number on the ticket or voucher. The only vouchers we accept are ones you have purchased from us directly. We on occasion get bookings from U.K. Paintball, Nationwide Paintball, Go Ballistic, Paintball Matrix, IPG and Delta force. Remember it's far easier and much cheaper to book direct with us than through any agency.
