Players should wear old, comfortable clothing and may also want to bring a change of clothes for the conclusion of the game. We strongly recommend boots with ankle support and deep tread/rubber soles – it can get a bit slippery in the woodlands! Some players may choose to wear wellington boots if it is muddy during the winter months – but it is up to each individual to decide if they want to choose a waterproof option rather than the safety of ankle support. Paintball gloves are available to buy at the centre, or you can bring your own. You may also want to bring some money for purchasing additional paintballs (we accept cash and credit/debit cards verified by PIN only).
No, only the paintball gun and equipment provided at the centre on the day of your event can be used.
For health and safety reasons, and to maintain a consistent safety standard across all centres, you can only use paintballs issued by Delta Force Paintball Netherlands on the day of your event.
There is no way of knowing how many paintballs any individual will use, as it depends on how trigger happy you are! It is entirely up to each person how many paintballs they want to use. The average use across the entire the company (by kids and adults) is 400-500 paintballs per person per day. You can purchase paintballs at the centre throughout the day, during the breaks between games.
Additional items such as paintballs, lunch and gloves can be purchased from the basecamp shop with cash or card (verified by PIN only). Please note we do not accept payment on site by cheque.
We believe paintball is safe for kids, but ultimately the parents must learn about paintball and decide for themselves whether their child is hardy and mature enough to participate. To help you with this, we have compiled an ‘Information for Parents’ guide, which can be included in your information pack or requested from our friendly staff by calling 020 369 7183. Please also see the FAQ concerning ‘Minimum Age’ below for more information.
The minimum age to play low-impact paintball is 8 years old and the minimum age for regular paintball is 18 years and over. The equipment and level of supervision provided by Paintball Netherlands (Nederlands) makes paintball safe for any age of player – so it’s not the ‘danger’ involved that determines our age limit – rather the fact that and it can be daunting for very young children. Some 8-year olds might find low impact paintball too much as well, so if you are in any doubt please pre-book a tour of one of our centres on a weekend and have a look for yourself – the Centre Manager would be delighted to arrange this for you. We also welcome parents to play along with their children on the day if they want to share in the fun with them. Please speak to one of our event coordinators to find out more.
Free tea and coffee is provided all day at our Netherlands paintball centre. At the Bant Paintball Centre we offer a hot freshly prepared lunch for €7.50 per person.
If you have not pre-ordered lunch when booking, all players at the centre will need to decide whether or not they wish to order lunch by 11:30am on the day of their event – this is to give the chefs time to prepare and deliver their creations. There is also a snack shop at each centre where you can purchase pot noodles, chocolates, drinks, crisps, and more.
No alcohol is permitted at our paintball centres. Any players who have been drinking will be excluded from the games and asked to leave the centre.
Our centres are open almost 365 days a year. We do strongly recommend booking your desired date well in advance to avoid disappointment. To check availability, please contact one of our friendly event coordinators on 020 369 7183.
On arrival you will be greeted by our friendly staff who will check you in. After you’ve completed your registration forms you’ll be kitted up with all the gear needed for the day and attend a compulsory safety briefing. Then the action starts! Adults will play 12-13 varied games during a full day session, and children between 8-17 years old, will play 6 varied games in a 3 hour session, with short refreshment breaks in between to reload your paintballs and discuss tactics!
All players are required to complete a registration form before they begin play. Players under 18 years must have their form signed by an adult; we suggest you send these out with your invitations. The other parents should return their completed registration forms for you to bring to the paintball centre on the day of the event. All registration forms can be found on our downloads page or our event co-ordinators can send these out via email.
There is no minimum or maximum number of players required; any group size is fine (although we may require a minimum spend level in order to open a centre for a midweek game). You will be joined by other players on the day to make up a team. To have a private paintball game playing against members of your own group, you will need to bring a minimum of 40 players, or pay an additional fee.
Where possible we will join your group with those of a similar age. However, there are often groups of mixed ages (when parents like to play with their children, or there are older siblings joining in etc.).
You can make a booking now for the players that you have confirmed, therefore assuring you bag your desired game date. You can then add additional players onto your paintball booking up until a few days before your event.
To avoid getting lost we suggest you make sure all drivers in your group print the directions from the website and take these with them. Our directions are for guidance only, we recommend using a road map or sat nav for more precise directions. If you do have trouble finding the centre, call us on DF_PHONE_NUMBER and one of our friendly staff will help you find your centre. Please note that our staff may not be aware of specific incidents in the area, such as road closures and road works. However, we will be able to put you in contact with someone who can help you further.
The paintball games go ahead regardless, in all weather conditions. All game zones are based outdoors in woodland areas, so we recommend you bring wet weather gear and sturdy boots with ankle support and a deep tread. Some players may opt for the comfort of wellington boots over the safety of boots with ankle support, and it is advisable to bring a spare pair of shoes to go home in. There are sheltered areas and lockers available to hire in the basecamp where you can store your gear between games. Players may also like to wear a thin waterproof layer of clothing under the combat suit we issue you for the day.
A full day session of regular paintball for adult players, is from 9:15am until approximately 4pm. We advise players to arrive by 9am.Low impact is available for children aged 8-17 years old, from 11am to approximately 2pm.
All payments are non refundable and non transferable. However, credits may be carried forward and used for a future paintball booking.
Unfortunately not. If anyone fails to attend the event on the date you have booked, the pre payment and paintballs for that person will be forfeited for the day. All payments are non refundable and non transferable, however credits can be carried forward and used for a future visit.
