Faqs

Q: Is paintball safe for children?

A: Paintball is as safe for children as it is for adults. Delta Force Paintball attempts to separate all junior activity from adult games, unless otherwise stated on the day. There are often groups of mixed ages (when parents like to play with their children, or there are older siblings joining in etc). To find out more about the nature of the activity and for parents to decide for themselves whether their particular child is hardy, and mature enough to participate in paintball, please read the ‘Information for Parents’ guide.

Q: What is the minimum age?

A: The minimum age to play regular paintball at national paintball centres in the UK is 10 years old. All players under the age of 16 years require a parental consent form to be signed by a parent or guardian before play commences. You can request these forms in advance at the time of booking.

Q. What happens if it rains?

A. The games go ahead regardless, in all weather conditions. All the game zones are outdoors, but there are sheltered areas and lockers available to hire in the base camp where you can store your gear between games. Participants may like to wear a thin layer of waterproof clothing under the combat suit issued to them for the day.

Q: What should we wear on the day?

A: Please wear old, comfortable clothing. You will be issued with overalls on the day, but we suggest you wear loose clothing underneath. We strongly recommend boots with ankle support and deep tread/rubber soles – it can be muddy, wet and slippery in the woodlands. No high heels or flip-flops please! Paintball gloves are available to buy at the centre, or you can bring your own.

Q. What do I do if I get lost trying to find the centre?

A. To avoid getting lost we suggest you make sure all drivers in your group print the directions from the website and take these with them. If you do have trouble finding the centre, call us on 0844 477 5020* and one of our friendly staff will assist you in finding the paintball centre.

Q: What time do we start?

A: Please arrive at the centre at 09.15am prompt. The day ends around 4pm-4.30pm. In winter months, the day finishes approximately 3:30pm-4pm.

Q: What happens on the day?

A: On arrival you will be greeted by Delta Force Paintball staff who will show you to our basecamp once check-in is completed. After filling in a registration form and paying any monies due, you will be issued with all your equipment and clothing followed by an introduction and safety speech. Then the action starts!

Q: How many games do we play?

A: Normally you play 12 – 14 games. In wintertime it could be less depending on whether there is enough light to play.

Q: How long does each paintball game last?

A: Each game lasts for about 10-15 minutes. However the day is also filled out with game planning and briefings and you are also given a break of approximately 10 minutes between each game to reload and refuel with snacks from our shop.

Q. Can I bring my own paintballs?

A. For health and safety reasons, and to maintain a consistent safety standard across all centres, you can only use paintballs issued by Delta Force Paintball on the day of your event.

Q: What additional items are there available on the day?

A: Additional items such as paintballs, lunch, pyrotechnics (for those aged over 18 yrs) and gloves can be purchased from the on-site shop at national paintball centres via cash or card (verified by pin only). Paintball prices at national paintball centres are £6.99 per 100 when bought in bulk (1000 paintballs) or £7.99 per 100 when bought in smaller quantities. Please note we do not accept payment on site by cheque. The following fees apply when purchasing items on site:

Cash FREE
Debit cards 53p
Credit cards 2.32%

In accordance with The Consumer Rights (Payments Surcharge) Regulations 2012 these fees reflect Delta Force Paintball’s actual costs in processing card transactions.

Q. How many paintballs will I require for the day?

A: There is no way of knowing how many paintballs any player will use, as it is completely dependent on how trigger-happy you are. It is entirely up to each person how many paintballs they would like to use. The average use across the entire the company (by children and adults) is 400-500 paintballs per person per day. You can purchase paintballs at the centre throughout the day, during the breaks between games.

Q: What food and drink is available at the centre?

A: All Delta Force Paintball centres provide a hot and fresh 9″ personal pizza for lunch (except Plymouth, where it is a giant pasty – either cheese and tomato or traditional cornish). The pizzas cost £5.49 each and the pasty costs £3.99. Everyone who would like lunch will be asked on the day to specify either Margherita (cheese and tomato – the vegetarian option) or Pepperoni (the meat option). Players need to decide whether or not they wish to order lunch by 11.00am on the day of their event – this is to give the chefs in the pizza or pasty shops time to prepare and deliver their creations. There is also a snack shop onsite where you can purchase chocolates, drinks, crisps, and more. For lunch options at local centres, please call our booking office on 0844 477 5020*.
