PAINTBALL BOOKING PROCESS
Bookings can be made on our website by telephone or safely and securely online through our website.
The minimum deposit we require on booking is the basic game fee. This pays for your entrance fee, all your equipment and protective gear, but not paintballs. Upgrading to named package or buying paintball packages and other sundries can be done when booking or at a later date, but no no later than 4 full working days prior to the game date..
On receipt of the required payment and final availability check, you will receive confirmation of your booking and a receipt for your payment, which will have full venue contact details and any other relevant information. Please use the postcode provided to generate your own map online using Google Maps or use in a SatNav. If you do not receive theses details on your receipt contact us immediately. If you fail to do this and subsequently cannot find the venue you must accept full responsibility. We can be contacted by phone seven days a week. Please view our booking office hours on this website. Please have full details of your booked event to hand.
Your booking usually prevents others from booking at a specific time on a specific date and is therefore subject to a recognised cancellation policy for sporting activity bookings, which is in line with Regulation 6 within the Distance Selling Regulations issued by the Office of Fair Trading. This means that, once the booking is in place, your right to cancel without penalty ends:
Booking taken:- Loss of deposit
More than 31 days prior to booked date:- Full refund less deposit.
31 days or less prior to booked date:- No refund.
Our accepted date of cancellation is when your written cancellation is acknowledged in writing by us. Email: firstname.lastname@example.org, or post to address below. If catering or any other supply is included in the package, this may also be subject to cancellation charges.The 31day rule includes weekends and bank holidays.Any reduction in numbers must also in writing and acknowledged in writing by us to be considered valid. Any changes in participant numbers are subject to the same cancellation charges as stated above. Verbal changes and cancellations are not accepted in any circumstances.
PAINTBALL AGE RESTRICTIONS AND RULES
We operate under UKPSF guidelines, which state:
Paintball players 13 years or younger must have a responsible adult playing with them throughout the session. Players between the ages of 14 and 16years must have a responsible adult on the paintball site at all times during the session. In addition the site must be in possession of a signed parental consent form before these age groups can take part. These forms are available to every participant during the booking process. Age restrictions are clearly stated on our website. Participants who do not meet the minimum requirement will be turned away from the site.
BAD WEATHER / OTHER UNAVOIDABLE CIRCUMSTANCES AT THE VENUE
If an activity is cancelled due to bad weather or any other unavoidable circumstances by the venue, your booking will be rescheduled to a mutually convenient date for you and the venue. You can chose a date up to three months after the original booked date. Bookings at a venue where the supplier is prepared to run the session, will not be eligible for re-scheduling. In these circumstances, a customer's decision not to take part it is deemed that the booking has been cancelled and charges as stated will apply. Refunds are not applicable. Should you only be in the area of your booked event for a limited period of time and are unable to return to the same venue, we will either provide you with vouchers to the value of your event, or hold your monies on credit so you can book into a more conveniently located venue on a date of your choosing up to 3 months after the original booked date.
Discounted bookings for large groups are priced on the number of participants. Any reduction in group size will result in re-pricing.If the reduction causes your group numbers to fall below the minimum requirement, the price for the minimum number will be charged regardless of attendees. In addition to the re-pricing, cancellation charges apply to each person that is cancelled in a group booking. A group that does not qualify for a discount at the time of booking, cannot acquire a discounted status by the addition of extra participants at a later date. A booked 'team' classified event can add further teams to their booking subject to availability but team sizes cannot be increased at a later date. If a reduction in a group size results in the venue cancelling your event you will still be subject to cancellation charges.
You must be ready to take part in your paintball event at least 15 minutes prior to a designated start-time to enable a full safety briefing to take place. The time you receive on your confirmation is your start time not arrival time. . No participant may take part in a paintball session without attending a safety briefing as designated by the site in question. The booking will normally be treated as a cancellation in the event of late arrival with the loss of all monies and the paintball operator can turn you away. This is their right to do so. Your acceptance of this proviso forms part of any booking. Please take arrival times seriously allowing for any possible delays on route to the venue.
EXCLUSION FROM VENUE
The paintball site has the right, at all times, to refuse participants access to paintball games at any stage of the booking and remove them from their venue if in their opinion the participants are under the permitted age; are unfit to take part in the activity because of physical or mental impairment; be under the influence of alcohol or drugs; have arrived too late to take part in the pre-activity briefing; consider them to be a danger to themselves, other participants or members of staff ; or are displaying aggressive and abusive behaviour (verbal or physical). If any of these occurrences apply, the booking will have been deemed to have been cancelled and cancellation charges will apply. There are no exceptions.
PERSONAL SAFETY / HEALTH REQUIREMENTS
Whilst paintball is as safe as it can be given its inherent physical dangers, it MUST be understood that all safety instructions, directions, warnings and all other instructions must be followed at all times during your time at the venue. You must listen carefully to all safety instructions and ensure you are wearing any safety equipment or clothing properly. If in any doubt you must seek further guidance and help from the activity provider immediately. You must not attempt to go beyond your capabilities or engage in risky or daring behaviour. It is a given that you undertake the activity with the full understanding of the dangers involved and accept responsibility for your own safety and the risks involved in taking part together with that of any minors for whom you have responsibility. You will be asked to sign a disclaimer before taking part. If you are in any doubt you must check with your GP prior to making any booking. If you refuse to sign a disclaimer you will not be able to take part and such an action will be treated as a cancellation.
If you are dissatisfied with your activity in any respect, or you have any other complaint about the activity provider or any other matter in relation to the venue or it's performance, then you must speak to the activity provider on the day and come to an agreement about how you can resolve the situation. It will not be considered reasonable if you have not brought your dissatisfaction to the attention of the activity provider at the time and then complain later. If you take part in an activity, either the booked activity or a replacement offered by the activity provider on the day, it is deemed that you consider that the activity of which you took part is entirely acceptable to you and that a complaint at a later date is unlikely to be considered. Should you have a complaint about the actual booking process, please email: email@example.com. All communications with Customer Services must be in writing, as this ensures that all aspects of the communication between us are clear and unambiguous. Once received, we will investigate and discuss the matter with the relevant parties. When we have gathered all the necessary information, we will get back to you.
Should you be deemed eligible for a refund the absolute maximum amount this will be is the monies you have paid to us and will not extend to consequential loss or claimed inconvenience or stress howsoever caused. No exceptions are made in this regard. If you have taken part in a paintball, or an alternative activity as a replacement, regardless of the circumstances or conditions under which you took part, then this will negate any refund claim.
