2016 ...

For the second season, we were the host venue for the UK Masters Paintball Championships as well as the E3M three man series and the Envy NPL 5 man series.  Our own 3 Man Winter Series was a great success with lots of new teams joining us as well as lots of our regular teams too.  

January saw us host a 2 day clinic with players from Birmingham Disruption, the 2015 Elite League champions sharing their skills and training ideas with over 30 other players

There's been lots of team and open training days as well as rental days this year ...

2015 ...

January saw us hosting the first VALKEN National Training Day with almost 50 people there from all over the UK being coached by players from Birmingham Disruption

We were also the proud host of the nationally recognised UK Masters NPL 2015 season with monthly tournaments 

Our academy opened to introduce youngsters and adults to try tournament paintball and to give them the opportunity to get involved in competitions!

There were also lots of fun sessions happening too, from youngsters celebrating their birthdays playing SPLATMASTER to adult pre wedding parties!
