What should we bring?
Loose and comfortable clothes covering as much skin up as possible, those paintball’s are more uncomfortable when hitting exposed skin. If you are going to wear our overalls and the weather looks fine then please remember that with all the running around you may get very hot – so wear appropriate clothing! Sports shoes are best. You may also choose to bring some light gloves – or purchase/hire them from the shop. You will NOT be allowed on the field in jandals, sandals or bare feet.
What happens if it rains?
Games proceed unless the rain is very heavy. Please bring a jacket or raincoat if the weather looks less than ideal. A spare change of clothes for afterwards is highly recommended.
Can we bring our own food?
Yes you can, we have BBQ tables available to use. We also have BBQ’s for hire for $10 per hour per BBQ. Please book these when booking your game. Please ensure to bring cutlery, utensils etc. Please ensure all rubbish is taken with you when you leave including chillibins, boxes, bags and other bulky rubbish.

Yes we provide flushing toilets (including disabled) as well as hot and cold running water.
