100% Safety Record!
How safe is paintball? In some areas of the world, paintball is represented by paintball game providers with poor standards in safety. Images posted online by people not observing sensible practices show nasty welts as badges of honour. It no wonder then, that those unfamiliar with paintball are tentative about how safe it is. So what is the answer? How safe IS paintball?
The answer depends entirely on the paintball games provider you choose to play with.

Our Safety Policy
- Head shots do not count at Delta Force so not to encourage players to shoot at each others heads.
- Goggles must stay on. When in the game zones, all players must keep their goggles on and adjusted correctly. This rule can not be broken and marshals will enforce the rule strictly.
- Our Safety Talk is compulsory for every player and no games are played or guns issued until this is complete and the marshals are satisfied everyone understands.
- We have a dedicated safety training course all our staff must complete and receive refreshers on in order to ensure we provide the safest environment possible.
- We have a set ratio of marshals to players so we maintain enough help on hand to maintain our high levels of playing experience and safety. A minimum of two marshals are always present for every game.
- All our paintball centre managers and senior staff have current first aid qualifications.
Our safety policy has been developed over our 25+ years providing paintball games. We regularly invest in the custom design and manufacturing process of equipment, in addition to the consistent, recognised training of our staff. We take your safety, and our reputation as the safest in our industry, very seriously.
