Registration and paintballing equipment issue
The day normally begins at around 9:15am, however we advise groups to arrive at 9:00am to ensure registration forms are completed as quickly as possible. Once registration forms have been completed each player will be issued with all the equipment they need for the day, along with any pre-purchased items such as paintballs, paint grenades and lunch vouchers. You may also store any valuables in personal lockers at this point.
Full safety briefing and team talk
You will then receive a pre-recorded safety briefing over the PA-system. This ensures that every safety consideration is properly addressed. You are here to have fun above all else, but we take your safety very seriously and ask that you give us your complete attention. All players are required to attend the safety briefing.
Once each participant has been issued with their equipment, marshals will then move around the base camp dividing everyone into teams with coloured armbands. These teams will be decided by the centre manager based on the bookings for the day. The teams will be divided equally by age, group size, and paintballing experience to ensure all games are competitive, safe and enjoyable for all players. Naturally every effort will be made to ensure friends and family can play together or separately if they prefer.
Paintball practice and goggle checks
Once the safety briefing is completed, each player will have his or her goggles inspected by a marshal. This test is performed to ensure every player has an appropriately fitted and secured pair of goggles for their safety. All Britannia Paintball goggles feature a chin strap that prevents the goggles lifting up, they also surround the top and back of the head, effectively preventing the goggles from slipping down.
Players will then be led through to the gun zone where they will be issued with a 0.68 calibre Inferno Paintball machine gun and be given the opportunity to enjoy a few practice shots in the target area to get used to their paintball gun.
