We do have certain Health & Safety requirements in order to protect everybody involved, so it is important that you thoroughly read the contents below, in order to help us – help you to have a great day out in a safe and secure manner…
We typically require 2 weeks notice for bookings but will try and be as flexible as possible with any last minute enquiries.
Our minimum age to play at 1066 Paintball is 14 years attained. You must be reasonably fit & healthy (and preferably of sound mind!). You must be able to listen to and follow instructions. Under 16’s must provide written permission from a parent or guardian prior to play.
You should arrive and be ready to start at 9am on Saturdays and 11am on Sundays – there will be a 1066 Paintball Marshall located at the main gate to direct you to the car park area.
Upon arrival, you will be greeted and asked to read our Disclaimer Form prior to signing in.
Once you have read and signed the necessary documents, you will be kitted out with a facemask to protect your face and a set of camo overalls to protect your clothing (we suggest you wear something comfortable and loose fitting, and good sensible footwear…not yer best new trainers as it can get muddy!)
You are welcome to complimentary tea or coffee while we get everybody signed in and kitted out.
If you would like to start your day at an alternative time, please contact us to discuss this.
Paintball is a physical activity and is not without its risks – 1066 Paintball and its staff, take your personal safety very seriously and will do everything possible to ensure that everybody has a great day out and an enjoyable paintball experience. Please ensure that you help us to do this by knowing our site rules before play is started.
We will go through this on the day, but here is the list so you can familiarise yourself in advance…
NO PLAYER MAY FIRE THEIR MARKER (GUN) WHEN THERE IS SOMEONE IN THE AREA NOT WEARING GOGGLES
NO DELIBERATE HEAD OR FACE SHOTS
MARKERS (GUNS) MUST NEVER BE TAKEN INTO SAFE ZONES
NO TREE CLIMBING, CUTTING OR DAMAGING OF VEGETATION
NO PHYSICAL CONTACT IS PERMITTED
ONLY ON-SITE GAS AND PAINTBALLS ARE PERMITTED FOR USE
NO PLAYER MAY CROSS ANY BOUNDARIES
ALWAYS LISTEN TO AND FOLLOW INSTRUCTIONS
NEVER PUT ANYTHING OTHER THAN PAINTBALLS IN YOUR MARKER (GUN)
IF PAINTBALLS ARE DROPPED OR SPILLED, DO NOT PICK THEM UP AND PUT THEM BACK IN YOUR MARKER (GUN)
IF YOUR GOGGLES MIST/FOG RAISE YOUR ARM AND CALL FOR A MARSHALL, DO NOT REMOVE YOUR GOGGLES FOR ANY REASON WHILE YOU ARE IN THE BATTLEZONE
NO ALCOHOL OR CONTROLLED SUBSTANCES ON SITE
NO SHOOTING OF WILDLIFE
BEWARE OF HIDDEN HAZARDSIF YOU REQUIRE ASSISTANCE, RAISE YOUR ARM AND CALL FOR A MARSHALL. NO PLAYER MAY FIRE AT A PERSON WITH THEIR ARM RAISED. IF THE TROUBLE IS SERIOUS, SHOUT “STOP FIRING”. ALL PLAYERS MUST STOP FIRING IF THEY HEAR THIS, OR THE MARSHALL’S WHISTLE
DO NOT SHOOT THE MARSHALLS, THEY ARE THERE TO ENSURE YOUR SAFETY AND YOUR FUN (THEY ARE ALSO MUCH MORE HEAVILY ARMED THAN YOU, PROBABLY MORE EXPERIENCED AND DEFINITELY KNOW THE TERRAIN BETTER!!)
After the safety briefing you will be equipped with your weapon and taken for a quick practice on the firing range before travelling to the first of your battlezones.
We aim to stop for lunch around 1.00 – 1.30 for approx 45 minutes, then straight back to it!
The balance of the cost of your booking will be payable at the end of play, (this is usually around 4.30 – 5.00 pm), together with the cost of any additional paint/food/drinks that you have used during the day).
Then you go home and triumphantly show off your battlescars and impress your friends with tales of your heroism!
