Original Paintball

Two teams battling against each other through a series of adrenaline pumping, nerve tingling games - Paintballs fly all around and thump into surrounding trees - can you survive?

Based at Wedgnock Rifle Range in Warwick, an ex-army training facility, Paintball takes place in 50 acres of woodland that incorporates trenches, barricades, hills, ridges and dense undergrowth.

Suitable for anyone aged 11+ years, Paintballing is guaranteed to get the blood pumping through your veins!

Sessions are run most weekends when lots of small groups are combined together. Midweek games are also available for groups of 12 + people.

A 3 Hour, Half-Day session costs £30 per person


How Does it Work?Paintball Player by Brick Wall

The game is based around two teams competing against each other. Each player is armed with a gun that fires paintballs (a similar size to a marble). The balls break open when they hit an object and leave a large splat of paint (brightly coloured and based around non-toxic, washable food dye). If a player is marked by a paintball they are eliminated from that game and watch from the side lines. Games last between 5 and 15 minutes and you only get one life per game! A typical half-day involves five games.

Safety is very important in Paintball, after all you are shooting at people with powerful gas operated guns! Everyone wears protective goggles and safety marshals ensure a safe and fair game.

Who Can Play?

All players must be 11 years or older (Junior Paintball is also available for younger players, 8 years +) . Those lucky enough to be under 16 years old need written parental consent to allow them to play (insurance requirements). An example Parental Consent Letter can be downloaded, printed, filled in and brought along on the day.

Paintball is a physically demanding game. You will be running around 50 acres of woodland, carrying a fairly substantial gun all day. A reasonable level of fitness is advisable.
