What our customers say

Great site. Most of the group were 12 year old and had never played paintball before. Staff were great and took all the kids individually through safety and how to load and fire their marker. 4 or 5 games were played and lots of fun was had.

A thank you for a fabulous time quad biking last Weds the boys were buzzing on the way home and talked about it all day. Your team got it spot on with each of the boys capabilities

13yr old and his mates shooting each other along with dad and uncle as targets. They loved it, full of questions, all of which were answered and fielded well by the Girls in charge. Helmets were so much better than last time, no fogging whatsoever. Good variation of games and scenarios. One problem is that its too Moorish! Need to come again soon, while I can still crawl!

I organised a trip to Oaker Wood for target shooting as a treat for my brother's 60th. None of us had much previous experience. We were treated as valued customers from the moment we arrived, really great staff. We all enjoyed the shooting as we were given individual tuition - and so much encouragement. Would love to do it again for the next special event as it was appropriate for all ages from 17 to 60.

Just a quick note to say that the boys had a brilliant time paintballing on Saturday. Please pass on our thanks to Dawn and Piers who were great with the kids.

Oaker Wood Leisure was recommended to me & it didn't disappoint! Chris & Helen were both fantastic. Knew all our names within minutes. They tailored the session to suit all from a couple of middle aged ladies, to an 8yr old girl and three teenagers! Fab time, already recommended to friends & colleagues. Thanks & will see you again.

Myself and six mates on a stag do visited Oaker Wood for a day of quad biking and target shooting and it was absolutely superb. The staff were really friendly and accommodating throughout and the activities themselves were great fun. The quad bike lads even took the stag and a couple of others out for a bonus run. Highly recommended!

Gary - Stag Weekend - Feb 2017

We cannot thank Mick & Piers enough for a fantastic morning of target shooting. A group of rather excitable 30-something women with guns isn't easy to handle! We had a great time, and really appreciated your efforts with the extra games to make up for a missing member of our group. We all loved it, and have littered our Facebook pages with photos!

Hannah Craker - Group of friends - Jan 2017

Thoroughly enjoyed our paintballing session and the kids loved it! Thanks to Mike and Dickie for making the whole experience one to remember! We'll be definitely returning!
