First Things First
One of the greatest things about taking part in a game of paintball is enjoying time with friends and family. Persuading loved ones, or even your colleagues, to join in the experience, will make the day more entertaining and memorable.
Most paintball centres require advanced bookings, so be sure to arrange a date beforehand that suits everyone. The number of venues in the UK alone allows ample choice of all types of terrain, from woodland to warehouses, and ensures your nearest centre won’t be too far away from home.
Let the Battle Begin
On the day, it’s important to wear suitable attire to help lessen the impact and avoid ruining your favourite outfits. Generally, jeans and a jumper will suffice.
Most paintball venues will provide you with all in one combat suits, to further protect your body and clothing, and of course, to add to the authentic experience.
Safety is always the number one priority, and the staff will undoubtedly run through the rules before unleashing you and your companions. The main thing to remember is to keep your mask on at all times, even when you have been eliminated from the game.
