What do I need to bring on the day?
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 be muddy, wet and slippery in the woodlands. Some players may choose to wear wellies 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 chip and pin).
Can I bring my own paintball equipment?
You can bring certain items of your own equipment to the centre, but it is always at the discretion of the Centre Manager whether you can use it. You can bring your own goggles, provided they are designed for paintball games and have not been modified in any way. You can bring your own gun to national paintball centres, but you will only be able to use it if you have arranged previously with Hawkeye Events. The use is at the discretion of the Centre Manager, and the gun will be subjected to a chronograph test.
Can I bring my own paintballs?
For health and safety reasons, and to maintain a consistent safety standard across all centres, you can only use paintballs issued by Hawkeye Events Paintball on the day of your event.
How many paintballs will I need?
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 Juniors 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.
How can I purchase additional items on the day?
Additional items such as paintballs, snacks, drinks, gloves and other equipment can be purchased from the onsite shop with cash or chip and pin. Please note we do not accept payment on site by cheque.
Can we bring alcohol to the centre?
No alcohol is permitted at anytime. Any players who have been drinking will be excluded from the games and asked to leave the centre.
What days are you open
We 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 us.
What happens on the day?
On arrival, you will be greeted by our friendly staff who will check you in. After you have completed registration forms you will be kitted up with all the gear needed for the day and attend a compulsory safety briefing. Then the action starts! You will play 4-7 varied games during a full day session, with short refreshment breaks in between to reload your paintballs and discuss tactics!
Do I need to fill out a registration form?
All players attending our paintball centre are required to complete a registration form before they begin play.
How many players do I need to bring?
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 with 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 12 players, or pay an additional fee.
I’m not sure how many players I have, but I want to book now so that I don’t miss out on the date I want. What should I do?
You can make your booking now for the players that you have confirmed, assuring you your desired game date. You can then add additional players onto your paintball booking up until a few days before your event if there are still availabilities.
What do I do if I get lost trying to find the centre?
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 for more precise directions. If you do have trouble finding the centre, call us on +31 638 937 082 and one of our friendly staff will help you find your centre.
What happens if it rains?
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 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 in the base camp 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.
What happens if a player does not turn up on the day and I have already paid for them?
All payments are non-refundable and non-transferable. However, credits may be carried forward and used for a future paintball booking.
