300 excited Scouts and Explorer Scouts arrived at the Kegworth Paintball Centre last weekend with high hopes of exhilarating paintballing action, and we weren’t going to let them down!
The 10-18 year-olds were the first Scouts in 16 years to take part in the sport, many of whom were likely to be involved in persuading the Scouting authorities Thanks to the upsurge in professional standards in paintballing over recent years, something Delta Force Paintball have long pushed for with their association with the UKPBA, the Scouts have from January 1st of this year reintroduced paintballing to the curriculum – and it was the Leicestershire County Scout team who took up this opportunity first!
This award-winning venue, recognised on countless occasions for its brilliant customer service, features many trademark characteristics of Delta Force Paintball that make our outdoor activities extra special. An expansive base camp and seven game zones welcomed the Scout teams, which were made up of 20 players, who soon had their problem-solving skills put to the test in the form of immersive missions. Whether it was figuring out how to transport a cursed artefact to the enemy’s base in Tomb Raider or defending Castle Wallenberg from an onslaught of paintballs, the eager youngsters worked hard as teams, encouraging each other and displaying real leadership credentials.
We hope the day was as unforgettable for the players as it was for our staff involved on the day, and we look forward to hosting many more Scout groups across our 32 UK paintball centres in the years to come.
