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

All our young people had a fantastic time doing paintball and rafting for the day. They had a fantastic time and we would recommend any other Scout Group to visit, David and his staff were excellent all through the day.

1st Osterley Scouts - Aug 18

We took our 11 year old with friends for an afternoon of paintballing! They all had the most awesome, fantastic, fun filled time! Very well organised with safety a priority! Will highly recommend to everybody! Can't thank you enough for making my sons birthday the best he has ever had.

Gemma - Junior Paintball - July 18

We spent the weekend here for a hen do of about 20 people. Such a great place - the facilities are excellent. We had loads of private space for the group and the staff even come and get your camp fire going for you. Would wholly recommend this place for a group get together of any sorts!

Hen Weekend - Jul 18

The set-up of the "camp" was ideal. There's a large communal enclosed area for cooking and relaxing, with a fridge that is a good size to hold a weekends supply of beer, plus some food. If you're looking for a place to hold your stag or hen weekend then I'd give Oaker Wood serious consideration. I'm sure you wont be disappointed.

I would like to thank you for your great hospitality and attention to detail with the groups that we have sent so far to your very special retreat for young people.

Diane Defoe - Harrow Club 10 - July 18

Tthe activities were great and the set-up you have with the pods, communal area and BBQ room made for a superb weekend. Thanks to all.

We booked Oaker Wood target shooting for a Sunday activity for a hen do - it was a surprise for the bride to be and we all had a great morning. It was very well organised from the booking process through to the actual day! Thank you

Alex Cook - Stag Weekend - July 18

I would like to say a very big thank you from all the staff and children at Water Mill for making our stay at Oaker Wood unforgettable. The children had a wonderful time taking part in new activities and doing things they never thought they would be able to do. You all looked after us really well and your staff are a credit to you.

Watermill Primary - June 18

The children had a fantastic time and the staff were really impressed too. The food was great and went down well with the children. Please pass on our thanks to all of the staff. The children didn't stop talking about them. It was so lovely to have staff that really encouraged the children; many of the children achieved more than we expected and it was all down to their encouragement.
