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

What a great day EVERYONE had! From the ease of booking to the actual event was such an easy process. On the actual day I found the staff very polite, helpful and professional and good fun! Nothing was too much trouble - I even forgot to take a knife to cut the birthday cake but Helen was on it straight away - thanks Helen! The kids had so much fun - 4 games, all very well organised, very safe (if you follow the instructions). Kids are still talking about it days after. Thanks OAKERWOOD for a brill day!!

Visited Oaker Wood back in the summer, the guys Sam and Chris were brilliant. My son was a bit nervous but Chris helped him become confident quickly and all had a great time, will definitely return and highly recommend.

Had such a great day Saturday paint-balling. The two ladies that looked after us were fun, helpful and so lovely! Will definitely be coming back for more activities. Thank you

My Daughters Best Party EVER!!! This weekend my daughter had her 10th Birthday party with you quad biking. All 8 children had a fantastic time and all want to come again. It was very well organised, children were safe at all times, the staff were friendly, helpful and welcoming. I would highly recommend quad biking. I think it is worth every penny and we will be back again. Keep up the good work.

Fantastic day had by all the boys, they really enjoyed paintballing. They got to play 4 games in the two hours they were there. The staff were great and explained every game to the boys. Super birthday party for a thirteen year old.

My family and I had an excellent time quad biking. All four of us were grinning from ear to ear the entire time. My kids (10 & 12) will never forget this experience!

Neil Morris - Behind Bars - Oct 19

We had the most amazing weekend here! The owners and staff are lovely and accommodating. It’s very organised from booking to leaving and Dave who looks after you when you’re there is brill. We all loved it - the communal areas are perfect for big groups. The big fire pit, barbacue hut and eating area are perfect. We had the most fun on the krypton trail - fun for all ages. Our ages ranged from 1-70! We all loved it so much we are making it an annual event! Highly recommend this hidden gem if you love the outdoors but want to sleep in a warm bed!

Fantastic and memorable experience for my sons 12th birthday. The children loved every minute and were very well looked after. The set up was so exciting and spectacular and the staff were so lovely and informative. The children are still all talking about it now (weeks later) and saying thank you for inviting us. Thank you Oaker Wood Leisure!!! My son wants to do it every year :).
