<Procedure for paintball>

15. PROCEDURE FOR PAINTBALL

Paintball is an exciting activity for all ages that encourages teamwork whilst bringing the excitement of video games to life.

Players are split into two even teams by our trained staff, who will oversee their safety on the field.

The playing fields have different objectives and scenarios and features, with each team starting from the opposite end.

Each field is played twice and the teams reverse their respective roles.

The rules for each game are explained by our staff, who are always on hand to answer any questions and dispense useful tips where needed.

Games are run until the set time has elapsed, or if the objective has been captured.

 

16. DO WE HAVE FREE PARKING ONSITE?

Both sites have ample free parking. In addition Bournemouth can accommodate full size coaches, while Alton can accommodate 50 seater coaches. There is also a slip road on the A32, 200 yards from the Alton site entrance that is available to park full size coachs.



<Are we open graphic>

17. ARE WE OPEN 7 DAYS A WEEK?

Normal event days are Saturdays & Sundays. Games can run during the week but we must have a minimum number of 25 players on a pre-paid 600 ball package, please check with us before booking.

18. DO WE OFFER A UPGRADE MARKER?

We offer a exclusive upgrade marker called the TACtical Inferno at our sites. The marker offers significantly improved features over the standard marker. For More information please click here.  We recommend pre booking a TAC in advance, due to its popularity.

19. SHOULD PARENTS STAY ON SITE WITH CHILDREN

We do not require a parent or guardian to be present during the day, however all players below the age of 18 must have a consent form signed by themselves and counter signed by a parent or guardian before they can play at our site. A downloadable copy is available on-line.

20. IS PAINTBALL SAFE?

YES, it is very safe compared to other team sports such as Rugby and football. Paintball is played across the world often without incident.

We provide the best safety equipment in the industry and we offer players full head protection.

Each set of goggles is inspected to ensure a secure fit before each game. We even provide free of charge body armour (subject to availability) All games are run by highly experienced staff and we make safety our top priority on the day.



<Spectator>

21. IS THERE AN AREA AT THE SITE FOR SPECTATORS?

Both our sites have safe zones with viewing facilities for some of the playing fields.

However, you cannot see all the playing fields from there as some game zones can be some distance into the woodland. You can go along as a spectator if you sign a player consent form and spectate with head protection, from outside the playing area and don't mind getting hit by the odd stray paintball.
