How many paintballs do we need?
As a guideline, an average usage is approximately 300-600 paintballs per player. This is very individual, as one player can shoot a lot more paint than another.
Is there a limit to how many people can book?
The only real limit will be the capacity of the venue, which does vary from site to site. Remember all bookings are subject to availability so if you have a large group please try and confirm the booking as soon as possible, otherwise you may miss out on places. Please contact our booking line and we will be happy to check availability for you.
What sort of footwear should I wear?
Comfortable footwear is best, old boots or trainers is usually the footwear of choice. Remember, if it is wet under foot wear shoes that you don’t mind getting grubby.
If players don't attend can I have their paintballs?
No, players who fail to attend on the day will lose their paintballs and these paintballs are non-transferable. Players that fail to attend on the day will also lose their pre-payment and are no longer entitled to their paintballs.
What clothing should I wear?
We suggest you wear a couple of layers on your top-half, depending on how cold it is. This will allow you to take a layer off if you get warmed up - and trust us you will. You have a camo-outfit given to you to wear for the day as well. Tatty old jeans or tracksuit bottoms are the best thing to wear on your bottom-half, your camo-outfit will be quite loose fitting and will slip over the top of pretty much anything.
