Helpful Hints For Paintball

Below is a list of helpful hints intended to make your experience with us as enjoyable as possible. Please ensure that all of your group are aware of these hints, as inappropriate clothing can ruin the session. 

  • Wear old clothes that you do not mind getting dirty. Although we do provide overalls they cannot be guaranteed to keep your clothes clean (the paint does wash out).

  • Wear old footwear as they will get dirty.

  • On wet weather days waterproofs are recommended. These can be worn under our overalls to protect you from some of the mud.

  • On wet days we recommend spare clothes including footwear for your journey home.

  • We recommend that you bring gloves to wear as these will protect your hands during the games.

  • On cold days we recommend warm clothing. Multiple layers of clothing is best as it is easier to regulate your temperature.

  • If you wish to purchase more paint on the day you will need to bring cash as we do not have a card machine on site.

  • You can bring your own paintball gun and goggles to use on our site should you wish, please contact us first. The goggles and gun will need to be assessed for safety by your marshal on the day.

  • If you wish to bring your own paint you can but your whole group need to be on our 300 ball package.

  • There will be tea, coffee and squash available free of charge, if you think you will want anything else you will need to bring it with you as there is no food or drink that you can purchase on site.

  • There are mosquitoes on site during the summer so insect repellent is advised if you are prone to being bitten.

What our customers say

I organised a paintball day for 12 of my family. The lads at the site made the day memorable and special. They helped and reassured the girls who were worried about safety and made sure we got full value from the games . Other sites I’ve been to try to over sell the paintballs but not at Oaker Wood ... no pressure at all. Great day and will go back for other activities if we are in the area .

Fantastic weekend at Oaker Wood using the pods and campsite. Facilities are excellent and the staff are brilliant and really go out of their way to ensure your stay and activities meet your expectations. Already looking at booking another stay next year.

Paul Wagstaff - Stag Weekend - May 19

I have just spent 3 days at Oaker Wood with 23 year 5 children. I can honestly say it's the best I've ever been on. Despite it raining every day we had a brilliant time. The pods were warm, the food delicious and plentiful and the staff were fantastic. Great range of activities for the kids but with a good balance of down time. Well done Oaker Wood, St Matthias have had a wonderful time, thank you.

St Matthias - May 19

Wet, muddy and brilliant. The different game areas were great and various with lots of trees, tyres, fences, barrels and vehicles. Will definitely be coming again with a lot more people for another work team building day. Thanks guys, everyone’s nice and bruised today!

An absolutely wonderful afternoon. Couldn't recommend it highly enough! We laughed, balanced, got covered in mud but had the most brilliant time. Thank you.

I just wanted to say a huge thank you to your team for an enjoyable weekend - this is the second year we have attended and the children and staff had an amazing time thank you so much we love coming to Oakerwood.

Being a 64 year old retired teacher I have been on many team building courses in my time, but this was by far the best one ever.

A huge thank you for keeping the boys entertained this morning while they waited for the coach. I have been told that the boys totally enjoyed their stay with you and we will definitely recommend you to other age groups.

We were a party of 17 for a hen do with people aged from 24 - 65. We did the codebreaker challenge and everyone had a fantastic time. It was a great combination of strength, mind and team work. We also had terrible weather beforehand but the team were in regular contact with me about the conditions and offered me the chance to cancel last minute with a full refund. Luckily we didn't cancel and the sun came out! The two men who looked after us all afternoon were great too! Would definitely come back here :)
