Games are played in a beautiful forest setting and last 10 minutes each. A total of around 12 games are played during a fun packed day.
As long as you are reasonably mobile you can play paintball. People from all walks of life, and all levels of fitness can and do take part in the activity. You do not need to be fit, as you can adopt a role within your team which best matches your level of fitness. Indeed, paintball is as much about mental agility as physical fitness, because tactics, leadership, teamwork and judgment all play an important part.
Depending on the time of year, you can play for as long as you wish. However a typical day of paintball would start with arrival on the site at around 9.30am.
After putting on your gear, you will receive a thorough briefing on safety, the rules of the game and instructions on the use of the marker.
At around 10:15am the first game begins. Play continues through to around 3:30pm.
During the summer season games can also begin around 3.30pm and you can play until 8pm in the evenings. This can be a great time to play Paintball then head out afterwards for a drink and a bite to eat.
