    Players can bring certain items of their own to national paintball centres, but it is always up to the Centre Manager whether or not you can use it. You can bring your own goggles but only if they have been manufactured specifically for paintball games and have not been altered in any way. Players are unable to bring their own paintball gun to the centre unless a private game has been arranged and the gun can operate from the gas canisters provided by the paintballing centre. The use is solely at the discretion of the Centre Manager, and all paintball guns are subject to a chronograph test before use. We do not allow players to bring their own gas or bottles on site for health and safety reasons.

    Paintball games go ahead regardless of any inclement weather conditions (except in very extreme circumstances, in which case you will be notified). The games take place outdoors but there are sheltered seating areas in the base camp. In wet weather players may also bring waterproof clothing to wear under their paintball overalls.

All players under the age of 16 are required to have a Parental Consent Form signed by a parent or guardian; we suggest that these forms are sent out with your invitations. Other parents should return their completed forms to the group organiser for them to bring to the centre on the day of your event. Don’t worry if you don’t have time to complete them before the day as our centres have spare registration forms which you can complete when you arrive.
