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.

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 :).

Charlotte Cable - Paintball Party - Sept 2019

Brought a stag group for paintball , great day made incredible by the awesome staff. The games were well thought out and the staff made it a brilliant experience , with short breaks in between games with soft drinks, tea & coffee. The price is very reasonable indeed and when you take in to account the quality of the venue and the customer service we received this is an incredibly cheap activity and we will certainly be back. Well done guys !!!

Scott - Stag Group - Oct 19

50th Birthday Fun - 14 friends came to Oakerwood as part of my 50th birthday celebrations where we all took part in Code breaking. The setting was fantastic, the activities so much fun and superbly organised. Jack looked after us on the day & was fab. If you are in the area & want to do something different/fun I’d highly recommend Oaker Wood.

Alex - Stag Weekend - Sept 19

May I say how much we enjoyed our paint ball party experience at Oaker Wood and our host’s Georgie and Pav were fabulous at seeing that everyone was looked after and had a great time. Please pass on our thanks once again to them. We will most definitely be back for more adventures with you in the future.

Lynne Luke - Paintball Party - Sept 19

Very organised (for a small organisation it puts the larger venues to shame in term of their professionalism and friendliness). The instructors are excellent; thorough on safety, easily connected with the kids, helpful to me with all the hassles relating to a kids party, making sure everyone had a good time. I think the best thing though was watching the kids fly down the zip wire upside down screaming. None of them will forget that birthday party!!!!!

Gareth Huxtable - 9yr old Birthday - Sept 19

Thank you, we had a fantastic time and I have only heard great things from the boys. Same again for next year please.
