Compact Paintball Terms and Conditions

Useful Advice for Compact Paintball

Here are some useful links to enhance you Paintball session:

Paintballing Terms and Conditions

The following terms & conditions apply to Paintball bookings:

  • Any players aged 11 to 16 years old will need a written letter of consent from their parent / guardian to give them permission to play. Players without a letter will not be able to take part. Download an example letter of consent.
  • Only paint pellets purchased from Adventure Sports Ltd. can be used on the day.
  • Ensure all group members arrive ten minutes early. If they are late the session will have started and they will not be able to join in.
  • Sensible footwear is very important. During the winter we advise walking boots or rugby / football boots. During the summer, walking boots or trainers are suitable.
  • Bring old clothes to wear under your overalls – they are likely to get wet, muddy and covered with paint.
  • A change of clothes is advisable or bring a bin bag to sit on in your car.
  • Paintball carries on regardless of weather conditions.
  • Full payment must be made to confirm your event. Payment will be required at least ten days in advance or immediately if there are less than ten days left before the game date.
  • All payments are non-refundable and non-transferable.
  • We don't offer any refunds for unused Paintballs.
  • Please ensure all players are able to make the booking date before submitting your booking, as mistakes cannot be rectified after the booking has been made.
  • Please note we are unable to accept liability for any errors resulting from data which you have entered incorrectly.
  • Paintball is phsyically demanding - make sure all participants are healthy enough to partricipate in two hours of outside activity that may include running.
  • The minimum age of all players on the date of the game is 11 years old. This is an insurance stipulation and proof of age may be required if a player is lucky enough to look young. All players agree to be bound by our playing conditions and safety rules. Any player that is unable to comply with our safety instructions will be excluded from the centre without refund.

 

Food

Paintball is played in an outdoor woodland environment. Food Hygiene regulations, set out by Warwickshire County Council, do not allow food to be served and consumed in an outdoor environment as there is no access to hand washing facilities. Unfortunately you cannot bring food with you and we do not serve food ourselves. 

The only exception is if you bring along a birthday cake. The Paintball session will run for approximately one hour and then stop for a cake break. Once everyone has had their cake the session will continue for the remaining time (do remember that the session lasts for two hours including cake time!)

Bring along some soft drinks too - the activity is busy and players will become thirsty.

If you need to feed your party you will need to go offsite after your Paintball session. We don't allow groups to stay on after a Paintball session to eat as our sessions run back to back and we need to ensure the next group in have a clear area to arrive to.

 

Clothing Advice

The right clothing is really important. The time of year will make a big difference to which clothes you choose.

Footwear

Footwear is the most important piece of clothing, especially during the winter months. When it’s muddy you really need some good grip. Walking boots with a good tread or football / rugby boots are advised. The tread on trainers / shoes will fill up with mud instantly and you will find it difficult to move anywhere.

Layers

Layers are strongly advised as it is easy to regulate your temperature. During the summer a T-shirt and a pair of shorts will be ideal to wear under your overalls. For the rest of the year a T-shirt, sweat shirt / hoodie and a fleece combined with some tracksuit bottoms will be ideal.

Any clothing is likely to get splattered with paint and mud. This will generally wash out, but you should always wear old clothes just in case.

Gloves

Gloves are useful as they protect your hands / fingers from a direct shot (a shot on your finger is painful!), keep your hands warm and offer some protection from brambles / nettles in the woodland.

Fingerless gloves are ideal as you will be able to handle the gun better (trying to reload a gun during a game, under fire, wearing thick woollen gloves is hard work!)

Armoured gloves are the best option as they protect the back of your hand from pellet impact. The armouring is made from a flexible plastic / rubber material that allows your hand to move, but takes the impact out of any shot.

Hats

Hats give the back of your head a bit of cushioning against a paint pellet from behind (if your own team shoot you or you’re running away!) But they do trap the heat and sweat from your head, (you are likely to be running around a lot), and this can increase the likelihood of your goggles misting up.

Many Paintballers find a hoodie to be the best option as you can pull them up over your goggles easily and if you do get a bit warm you simply pull the hood down.

Other popular alternatives are baseball caps (worn backwards so your goggles fit) and bandanas – (look cool but don’t offer much protection)!

Spare Clothing

Spare clothes are really useful if you play on a really wet / muddy day. The overalls we provide will keep the worst off, but water and some paint will go through to your clothes underneath.

Bin bags!

Bring a couple of bin bags for the end of the day. They are great for taking home your muddy footwear or for sitting on in your car (you may have wet and muddy trousers!)
