Delta Force is now taking bookings for mini-paintball events for 8-10 year olds at a number of national paintball centres across the UK! To find out where these unique and exciting events are currently available in the UK click here.
Over the coming months we plan to introduce mini-paintball to more national centres across the UK. During mini paintball events players use smaller guns and smaller paintballs so there is less energy when the ball hits participants (thus meaning a softer impact).
Due to our ongoing efforts to further improve the overall safety of paintball events, Delta Force has been approved by the UKPBA (United Kingdom Paintball Association) to be a provider of low impact or "mini-paintball" events. This exciting activity is an excellent choice for children's birthday parties, family trips and school outings. Groups of any size are welcome; safety is our first priority and all children are carefully supervised throughout the day by our skilled marshalling staff. Delta Force Paintball has an outstanding safety record and an enviable reputation for organising birthday parties.

Immediately after the safety brief it’s time for the action to begin. All players will be specifically divided into teams with different coloured armour bands, and the Centre Manager will call upon each team based on these colours. Before players leave the base camp marshals will perform a ‘touch-check’ on the goggles of every player to ensure there is no chance of the goggles becoming dislodged or falling off the player’s head.
Delta Force is the only paintball provider to perform a ‘touch-check’ on every player and this is very likely to be one of the reasons why we have an enviable safety record. The Delta Force goggle-system fully encloses the head, thus meaning that it is impossible for the goggles to slip down or fall off – at Delta Force we take your vision and safety extremely seriously!
The day ends with a prize giving ceremony where the scores are reviewed and certificates are awarded to the winning team and to the runners-up. For further information please contact a member of our team on 0844 477 5115*.
Registration forms are completed by every player on arrival, and parental consent forms must also be completed by players younger than 16 years. Delta Force staff will be on hand to help the children, but parents and/or teachers may find it saves time to download the parental consent forms from this website, and pre-complete them.
Once registration has been completed it’s time to get suited up in mini paintball safety equipment and make sure that everything fits perfectly. As a parent you will not be alone, Delta Force personnel will be on hand to help, however we do strongly advise that 1 or 2 parents remain at the centre whilst the children play.
After all players are ready with their equipment the Centre Manager will muster everyone up to the stage for the safety brief. It’s essential that all children pay close attention to the safety speech, as this is where the Centre Manager explains the safety regulations, how to use the equipment and outlines the rules of the game. Marshals will patrol the edge of the audience while the Centre Manager is on stage delivering the safety brief. Delta Force takes safety very seriously with our world class safety record, and as such parents often comment that Delta Force takes safety more seriously than any other paintball provider. All mini-paintball participants will receive a separate safety brief to other standard players – through this we can be certain that young participants receive more personal instructions and are 100% clear on all the safety rules.WHY DELTA FORCE?
"The staff were superb and couldn't do enough for us; they helped us carry bags in, offered us tea and coffee, and kept checking to make sure all was good. Zoe and Joe were excellent marshals. We will definitely use you again and recommend."
"I booked for myself and 9 of my friends, all of us had such a great time and will definitely be returning. The marshal Chris E was very good at his job, he was really welcoming on our arrival and made sure we all had a brilliant day."
"I would like to comment on the Marshal, Sam. He handled our group well and was very clear with the safety rules. It was a fantastic day out and we will be re- booking at Delta Force Orpington again."
"I took a group of fourteen 10 year olds for my son's birthday party last Saturday. The boys had a great day!"
"It was a great day out for our Football Team, although they were only 13 years old all the staff made sure they were safe throughout the day."
"The 2 marshals Zeke and Fifi were great, they did a really good job in looking after the players on my team and controlled the game zones well and kept some players in check. Thanks to both of them and Delta Force."
"I felt apprehensive as we arrived in the car park at Mapledurham, well I needn't have worried, what a fantastic day we had. From the moment we arrived at 9:15 to the moment we left at 16:00 the boys had fun in a well organised, safe environment. Than..."
"The day was amazing and our marshal George S. made the day even better, he went above and beyond to make our day a great one."
"The marshals Ben and Alvin were fantastic and made it great day for all. It was my son's 15th birthday (we have celebrated 3 birthdays there now) and he said it was the best one yet. I couldn't recommend this place enough."
Children should wear comfortable clothing. Most players wear boots with ankle support and deep tread/rubber soles as it can be muddy, wet and slippery in the woodlands. Some players may choose to wear wellington boots in the winter months or if it is muddy – but it is up to each individual to decide if they want to choose a waterproof option rather than the safety of ankle support. In wet weather you may also like to wear a thin waterproof layer of clothing under the overalls we issue you for the day. Armoured gloves are available to purchase on the day for added protection, or alternatively you can bring your own.
Players are issued with a full head helmet that employs the latest in goggle technology. These goggles are unique to Delta Force Paintball and provide full protection of the face and head. All goggles feature a chin strap to ensure they remain on at all times, and marshalling staff perform a “touch-test” to confirm goggles are worn correctly before players head out to battle.
The most important safety rule is for players to keep their goggles on and tightly adjusted at all times when in the game zones. If anyone breaches this rule, for any reason whatsoever, they will be excluded from participating in the event – this rule is strictly enforced and exists to protect all players.
