Owner description: Skirmish, one of the first companies to bring paintball games to the UK from America was established in 1984 and since then we have been successfully catering for all types of groups, individuals and corporate team building events for both adults and juniors (10yrs+)Our format makes booking in and participating easy. We can accommodate up to 180 players on an event day, but if your particular group is only a few in number you will be able to combine with other parties to make up the numbers. We know from experience that this is the best way to run a superb event, with everybody having a great day of fun. Birthday parties are very popular here!Paintball is a game to be played and enjoyed by people from all walks of life. You do not have to be young and fit, all you need is the ability to have fun and a sense of humour!Our well trained friendly staff are here to make sure your day runs smoothly and safely. All our marshals are over 25 yrs old with many years of paintball events management between them.

As far as paintballing goes, Skirmish is a great venue. As well as offering a variety of different locations for players to shoot the hell out of each other, they also include body armour, overalls etc in the initial price and have a shop onsite where a variety of food, ammunition and grenades can be purchased.

As per the two other poor reviews; my group suffered the same experience. Unfortunate, because paintballing is usually a lot of fun.

Lady (presumably manager) was quick to let the man at the till know not to give us discounts before we even spoke or handed over our Groupon voucher; if you don't like groupons then don't publish yourself as willing volunteers on the discounted site. Rude and not at all friendly. Didn't even breakdown what we were paying for, very impatient and did not want to discuss options. Lady called me days and weeks in advance trying to make me pay for balls... in advance; badgering is the best way to describe it - Money Grabbing.

Marshalls ruined the experience with their hard and lack lustre attitudes. Most seemed like they had a chip on their shoulders. I understand it is a dangerous game, but the whole point of participating in such activities is to actually have fun.... not be bullied and marshaled as if we are on a school playground or in Afghanistan - Hostile (and deluded) Workers.

Guns jammed tirelessly. Little to no pressure in the guns provided. Most had problems. When gun didn't jam, balls would shoot 2-3 metres and drop lol. Not worth the money at all. Will not be returning to this venue - Terrible Equipment

All participants within my group were disappointed. Thoroughly enjoyed paintballing in establishments elsewhere.

Best birthday party ever! My son and 7 of his friends enjoyed a laser tag party to celebrate his 10th birthday. This was a return visit after a hugely successful 9th birthday party at Skirmish last year. I'm always apprehensive when re-visiting somewhere when you have had a great experience previously in case it doesn't live up to one's expectations. I needn't have worried. The party was superb. Special thanks to Steve & Warren, our marshalls, who were fantastic with the children (& us)! They struck exactly the right note between having fun but getting the boys to observe the safety rules. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend this place. 10/10!
