At Combat Splat, we want to make sure you and your party are fully prepared for your day. We have put a few tips together for parents to ensure that organising a day out for your childs party is as easy as possible!
Paintballing continues to be one of the world's fastest growing sports and at Combat Splat we continue to accommodate for everyone over the age of 10 years old, everyday of the week!
1) Group size
We require a minimum of 8 players to open the site however if you would like to play on a weekend then we will almost certainly have other groups in so individuals are more than welcome. If you have less than 8 in your group and no other groups booked in then we will provide a list of alternative dates as well as keeping you updated in case your original date receives interest.
Due to popular demand we have two invitations available for download to help you confirm interested players. These can be downloaded from the top of this page and on our downloads page where they can also be previewed.
3) Consent forms
It is important that every player signs in on arrival. For younger groups, we require a consent form for each player under the age of 18. These are also available on our downloads page and must be printed and completed before you arrive by each parent/guardian.
All players are provided with full body overalls and full face, ear and eye protective goggles. For younger players and women, chest and back impact vests are available. Players are encouraged to wear comfortable old clothes underneath and bring appropriate footwear that they are prepared to get wet and muddy in the woodland, and any other weather dependant clothing such as a hat and gloves.
5) How much is it?
We recommend a half day session for all younger groups. These are available as a morning session (9.30am - 12.30 pm) or an afternoon session (12.30pm - 3.30 pm) We feel this is more than adequate for the younger, more trigger happy players! With the cost of kids birthdays in mind, we have created the Sniper Package, available at only £16.50 a head, this is designed to reduce the one off cost to parents. This package includes all gun and equipment hire and 200 paintballs per player. For a full day the average used is 600 Paintballs and is available with lunch for £35.00 per person. More information on our other packages, half day or full day, are available here.
You will be required to pay a deposit of £10 per person in order to secure this booking. The deposit will be used as a guarantee of attendance - Attending players can take £10 from their package selection on arrival.
We understand that due to unforeseen circumstances group numbers may change. For that reason we allow deposit refunds up to a maximum of 20% on the provision that notice of at least 48 hours before the event date has been provided.
If sufficient notice hasn’t been provided and a player does not turn up then the deposit for that player will be lost to cover staff, equipment and loss of bookings.
Card payments can be taken over the phone or it can be paid by Cash or Internet Banking. For the depsoit we typically send out an E-invoice for the required amount. With this you simply click on the link and pop your card details in.
7) Do Under 16's stay together?
We run both Under 16 and Over 16 sessions, obviously Dads (and Mums!) often like to play as well within the Under 16 session which is fine. Remember that all games are watched by trained marshalls.
8) Do parents have to stay on site?
It is a preference that parents stay on site especially with young groups, however this is not a requirement. As long as we have contact information for the parents it shoudn't be a problem. There are viewing windows to view some game zones and snacks and hot drinks are available for those who decide to stay.
The most important thing to consider whilst playing paintball is to keep your goggles on at all times, in all areas of the game zones. If any players are seen removing goggles in game zones or safety zones we will not hesitate to exclude any players from the game and consider exclusion from further games. This is only to ensure player safety. A full list of safety information and equipment is available here.
10) Is it safe?
Paintballs can bruise the skin so expect children to come home with a few bumps and bruises. We provide players with overalls, body armour and full face goggles to reduce pain, risk of injury and to ensure kids can play in confort and safety. The paintballs themselves are made out of gelatine skinned balls filled with a vegetable based food colorant designed to decompose as quickly as possible, and more importantly for you, wash out of clothes!
11) Food and Drink
There is plenty of space in the reception area if any parents would like to sort out party food, birthday cakes or any other snacks. We provide Domino's Pizza for full day groups and sell snacks and hot and cold drinks in the reception area. You are more than welcome to bring your own. If you would like to add Pizza to a half day session you can at a cost of £4.00 per person, this will be delivered at 12.15pm for either the start or end of your session.
All players are fully supervised when playing in the gamezones by trained marshalls ensuring that site rules are abided by.
13) First Aid
There is always first aid qualified staff on site and a selection of first aid equipment at their disposal. We have been inspected by Wiltshire Council and have an impeccable record.
