A paintball shot can hurt occasionally, but not as much as people say! We provide every player with the option of full overalls and foam body Armour to take the sting our of any shot. And all be it only a small sting, once you are game ready and battle minded it is easily forgotten.

How long is each session?
Half day sessions are 3 hours long and run from either 9am or 1pm. The full day session is 9 am until approx 4pm. 3 hours consists of all sign in and safety briefing, then onto 3 field of play, getting 2 games on each ( total of 6 games on 3 fields). The full day consists of all sign in and safety briefing and then at least 5 fields of play, so 10 games with approximately 1 hour lunch break. breaks are given of approx 15 mins between all fields.
Can i arrive late?
We ask all players to do their best to be at the centre for their given arrival time. We usually have a large amount of players to kit up, sign in and safety brief so any later comers may miss all of this and therefore miss the first set of games to catch up. Also bigger groups arriving late may be needed to split across two teams as teams are not decided before the briefing and cannot be easily changed after the first game.
