We can accept group bookings of up to 6 people, with a total limit of 30 people per game. The games are played with social distancing measures in effect, which allows us to play multiple groups together.
The group limit of 6 applies to the social distancing aspect of the activity (mingling between games, in the safe zone) and not to the game playing aspect of the game day.
As we have large safe zones at our sites, we can accomodate customers in multiple groups, with social distancing measures in effect.

Is it safe to play paintball during the Corona Virus Epidemic?
Paintball is carried out entirely outdoors, with fresh air and away from less clean environments such as pubs, clubs, restaurants, bars, cinemas and theaters.
When playing paintball you are exchanging a limited space with a high concentration of people such as a stadium, for a vast space with a very small number of participants in an outdoor setting.
Additionally, paintball markers are disinfected after each game. Our safe zones are more than large enough to facilitate social distancing, as can be seen from the photos and using the google tours on the website.
Contact between people while playing is practically non-existent in paintball as the minimum distance for shots is 2 meters.
Bathroom facilities are hygienic and are cleaned regularly throughout the day.
The weather forecasts that include warmer temperatures for paintball days, are an advantage as the sun's rays have a negative impact on the possible spread of the virus.
Common sense is required.
