The Benefits of our Outdoor Activities in the Current Climate

  • When you choose to play paintball over indoor activities, you are swapping limited indoor space surrounded by a high concentration of people, for a vast 720-acre woodland with a small number of participants.
  • Paintballing and all other activities at BPF are an easy way to have safe outdoor fun while avoiding large gatherings and enclosed public spaces.
  • All of our activities are carried out entirely outdoors with plenty of fresh air and social distancing.
  • Contact between people during most of our activities, particularly paintball, is practically non-existent as the minimum distance for shots is 5 meters.
  • The sun's rays have a negative impact on any possible spread of the virus, meaning that it’s important to be outside without a high concentration of people around you.
  • All customers are issued their own personal gear that will not be shared with other players on that day.
  • Our venue capacities are below the government's guidelines for large gathering sizes.
  • Even in times like these it’s important for our physical and mental health to stay active. Unlike closed environments like gyms, paintball and our other activities are a great way to get some exercise while at a much lower risk.
  • With all these points in mind, we believe paintballing is one of the lowest risk activities for children and adults in the country right now.
