The Games

Each player wears protective gear and is armed with a constant air, pump action paintball rifle and ammunition. The paintballs themselves are made of soft gelatine containing harmless, non staining biodegradable dye. If you are hit the gelatine splits and marks you with dye which can be sponged off in the safe area. Full training in the safe use of the weapon is given. Throughout the day different games are played, the length of each is dependant on the scenario - generally they last between 20 and 30 minutes. In one game, your team may have to attack the enemy's base camp, capturing their flag and taking it back to your base to win the game. The team that achieves the objective is declared the winner of the game and our experienced marshalls ensure there's fair play.

The Site Facilities

The site has been specially designed to give a minimum variety of game play. Be part of the action in the bale village, experience an ambush through the gorge and stream. Games are played in the thickly wooded area and surrounding fields so there's an exciting combination of terrain. We have all the facilities to make your day that much more enjoyable. There's ample parking, a kitting up area and male and female toilets. An undercover safe area is where you can relax with hot and cold drinks and snacks between games and enjoy, or sit outside around the log tables.

Safety and Clothing

Safety is a paramount importance. There are site rules, which must be followed - the marshalls ensure that they are - so enjoy your day in safety. We provide protective face masks, hoods and overalls (chest pad are provided for females) - all you have to do is arrive in old clothes and sturdy boots. You are welcome to wear your own camouflage gear if you wish.

Who Can Play?

Anyone over the age of 18 (16 with parental consent), male or female, will enjoy a day of paintball games. Obviously there's a certain amount of physical exertion involved so you will need to be reasonably fit to gain the most enjoyment out of the day. Companies and organisations find a day's paintballing a thoroughly enjoyable way to build up team spirit.
