Players should wear old, comfortable clothing and may also want to bring a change of clothes for the conclusion of the game. We strongly recommend boots with ankle support and deep tread/rubber soles – it can get a bit slippery in the woodlands! Some players may choose to wear wellies if it is muddy during the winter months – but it is up to each individual to decide if they want to choose a waterproof option rather than the safety of ankle support. Paintball gloves are available to buy at the centre, or you can bring your own. You may also want to bring some money for purchasing additional paintballs (we accept cash and credit/debit cards verified by PIN only. Please note: fees apply to the use of credit and debit cards).
For health and safety reasons, and to maintain a consistent safety standard across all centres, you can only use paintballs issued by Manchester Paintball on the day of your event.
We believe paintball is safe for kids, but ultimately the parents must learn about paintball and decide for themselves whether their child is hardy and mature enough to participate. To help you with this, we have compiled an ‘Information for Parents’ guide, which can be included in your information pack or requested from our friendly staff by calling 0843 178 2470*. Please also see the FAQ concerning ‘Minimum Age’ below for more information.
Our centres are open almost 365 days a year. We do strongly recommend booking your desired date well in advance to avoid disappointment. To check availability, please contact one of our friendly event coordinators on 0843 178 2470*.
On arrival you will be greeted by our friendly staff who will check you in. After you’ve completed your registration forms you’ll be kitted up with all the gear needed for the day and attend a compulsory safety briefing. Then the action starts! You will play 12-14 varied games during a full day session, with short refreshment breaks in between to reload your paintballs and discuss tactics!
All players are required to complete a registration form before they begin play. Players under 16 years must have their form signed by an adult; we suggest you send these out with your invitations. The other parents should return their completed registration forms for you to bring to the paintball centre on the day of the event. The Parental Consent Form can be found on our downloads page.
Where possible we will join your group with those of a similar age. However, there are often groups of mixed ages (when parents like to play with their children, or there are older siblings joining in etc.).
You can make a booking now for the players that you have confirmed, therefore assuring you bag your desired game date. You can then add additional players onto your paintball booking up until a few days before your event.
All payments are non refundable and non transferable. However, credits may be carried forward and used for a future paintball booking.
Booking couldn’t be simpler! All you need to do is call us on 0843 178 2470* (24 hours a day, 7 days a week) and speak to one of our friendly event coordinators to check availability and book your event. Alternatively you can complete the online booking enquiry form, or email us and we will call you back at a convenient time.
