One of the most popular choices for stag weekends the appeal of paintball is plain to see, get tooled up, pick your teams and go shoot your mates with a barrage of painful paint!

That’s not to say Hen parties don’t get in on the action with more and more hen parties choosing to swap the cocktail classes and pole dancing parties to don the camouflage and pepper their friends with paint!

It has long been said paintball brings the best and worst out of a group, so whether you’re the gung-ho action movie fan diving over logs while spraying pellets willy nilly, the cautious camouflaged coward biding his time or the over serious closet commander planning out complex tactical manoeuvres while barking orders at your team, you are guaranteed a good time.

Exhilarating, action-packed and adreneline fuelled paintball is a great way to spend a day with sessions lasting around three and a half hours.  One of our top tips is to get the groom in fancy dress so everyone can spot him a mile off, cruel but hilarious fun.  You can find out more about paintball packages here.
