If you are looking at bringing your friends  for a  Paintballing day then you probably have a few questions - here is a brief list of Q&A to help - if you have any other questions or need to discuss your requirements then please call Clare on 01342 870870 or email skirmish@globalnet.co.uk


Question - Whats the youngest age you can entertain?

Answer - Our adult Paintballing are for 16+ if you have kids then you need our kids paintball sessions which cover ages 10 - 15.


Question - Are you fully insured?

Answer - Yes, we have full Public Liabilty insurance for £5,000,000 covering ages 10 and upwards.


Question - Does it Hurt?

Answer - Getting shot by a Paintball is not pleasant - its agony either or else no-one would do it! We dress all our youngsters and chicks up in Camo gear then put Body Armour over that coupled with a padded hood and Full-Head goggles for unrivalled protection. We also use the finest, brittle paintballers to further limit any sting caused by getting shot.


Question - Do you supply gloves?

Answer - I`m afraid we do notissue gloves (one to many pairs go missing!) but we recommend kids bring a pair - wooly gloves are usually available onsite at £3.


Questions - I want grenades, can they use them?

Answer - every one wants grenades - we have both smoke bombs and paint grenades available for adults only - I`m afraid the law prevents us from selling/allowing use of any pyrotechnics to anyone under the age of 18

How many  do I need for a private Paintball party?

For large groups of 16 or more players you can have a Private  Paintballing party - . You have your own seating area, dedicated team of Skirmish Paintball staff and no one else joins your battle.

How many Paintballs do we need?

We advise a total of 700 Paintballs per player for our full days, around 500 for half days - for  kids paintballing parties we reccommend 300 Paintballs. There is little chance of making 100 paintballs last as kids being kids, they will blast away at anything that moves - including me!  


Can we bring our own Paintballs?

Afraid not - it invalidates our insurance and really annoys us.


My mates got some old Naval Flares.......



Do we get lunch?

All our Adult Full Day packages include lunch (Burgers, Sausages, beans, mash, cheese & onion - we ask for vegitarians on the day).  No lunch is included on the Adult half day packages - it can be arranged in advance - and kids have Hotdogs.  Tea, Coffee and squash is free on each session.


I hear we can use Tesco Clubcards at Skirmish East Grinstead?

Yes, you can use clubcards on our Adult Standard Entry Package and  Adult Pay -as-you-play packages - for Kids you can use them on our Standard Half-day Young Gun package. I`m afraid we cannot except them as payment for additional paintballs.


Do you split groups up?

No, we do our best to keep all groups together on the same team.


What if it rains?

Ah, good old England, we all love discussing the weather - we do play if it rains - our Safe Zone has loads of covered seating, the Woodland is in a dell so we rarely get wind and if its cold we always build a big, warming fire.


What are the timings?

Adult Full Days start at around 9.15-9.30 (private games can choose their start time within reason)Adult Half days are usually between 9.15-1.00 and 1.00-4.00. For our Kids open Paintball Sessions the timing are 12.00 - 3.30 (aim for an 11.45 arrival).If you are having a Private Kids Paintball Party thenyou can choose your timings, though 10.00 - 1.30 and 12.00 - 3.30 are the most popular.


Can I bring a Birthday Cake?

Oh yes. At the end of the session we finish off with an awards presentation and a slice of cake is a great way to end theday - I also offer a personal "cake tasting" service if required!


Do you take cards?

Yep, we accept everything other than Amex and Magic Beans.
