Paintball Games

Ideal for Stag and Hen Days, Clubs and Groups of Friends

Paintballing is still one of the most popular half day activities for Stag , Hen and family groups. With over 34 years experience we have developed some fun scenarios for all levels of fitness and experience.


Stag or Hen goes FREE for all groups of 15 or more!

Once the group has been kitted up with overalls, goggles, facemask and balaclava the briefing begins. Guns and ammunition are issued and the first few Speedball games take place in the parkland. Each team has to defend their own camp and flag while trying to capture and return the enemy flag to their camp. The team with 2 flags is the winner. This is as fast and furious as you want to make it. Plenty of cover for those who want it but lots of open ground for the more gung-ho. All games are controlled by experience marshals and there are strict rules:

  • No shooting closer then 5 metres
  • Definitely NO HEAD SHOTS (nothing above shoulder height counts)

After these warm up games it is time for a refreshment break back in the Safety Area. This is the only place where players can take their goggles off.

The next games take place in the woods where we have plenty of dug outs, barricades and 2 story high look outs. Planning, teamwork and guile will usually win through. While 1 team defends the camp and flag the opposition has to using their cunning and tactics to outflank the defenders in order to capture the flag and get back to base without being caught.

The climax of the day is often an ambush scenario together with a Stag Hunt. The groom to be and his trusty sidekick, the best man, dig themselves in and the rest have to find the pair and flush them out.

We run games for individual parties and do not mix parties up. Therefore you can keep with your friends and family without come up against another group. If it is a small group of less than 12, we can still run an enjoyable event. You pay for a dozen but get the paintballs of those who are not there.


The answers to some of the old questions:

  • The paintballs are biodegradable and disappear after a few days.
  • The paint will wash out of your clothing and off your skin.
  • No, it does not hurt - that much!

Minimum age is 10 years so paintballing is an ideal activity for all the family.


Players are strongly advised to bring sturdy footwear and a complete change of clothing, together with thin gloves.

Please note:

Only paintballs provided by Arena Pursuits may be used. No alcohol is allowed on site.
