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

The instructors were fantastic with the boys, giving clear instructions of what was expected from them and rules of safety around the guns. Overall, Oaker Wood is just the place for 10 energetic boys to have a morning outdoors and I now have a very happy birthday boy with memories of a wonderful party!!!!!!

Mark Gamble -Saints Foundation Education Manager -Nov 18

Organised a quad biking party for my 9 year old daughter and her friends. They had a wonderful time and the guys running it were fantastic with them, giving them encouragement when they first started and getting them more confidant with the quad as they got on. Could not fault the day. Very helpful there and would definitely recommend.
