On January 1st 2014 the National Scout Association lifted a 16 year ban that had prevented Scout Groups from playing paintball as an official scouting activity. This ban was welcomed by a great many people and since being lifted Delta Force has had the pleasure of entertaining hundreds of scout groups at our UK paintball centres.
One such occasion involved a group of 300 Scouts and Explorers, eager to try out paintballing for the first time. Here is what Johnny Kitching – Assistant County Commissioner of Leicestershire Scouts – had to say about the event:
“For a sessions event we took just under 300 Scouts and Explorers on what turned out to be a fantastic day. Prior to the day and having never been involved with paintballing lots of questions were put to Delta Force, everyone answered in a professional and friendly manner, it was clear from the offset that they as a company would go to any lengths to accommodate us and make sure that the day would run as smoothly as possible. On the day itself we could not have asked for more. The staff were a real credit to the company – friendly, helpful and accommodating in every way. The organisation throughout the whole day was impeccable and everything flowed really smoothly from start to finish. I would whole heartedly recommend Delta Force Paintball to any Scout Group, District or County looking to take part in a paintballing event”
Safety is our first consideration – but we also never overlook the fun-factor – after all that’s what the youngsters care most about.
Delta Force Paintball is renown for the high quality of it’s equipment and facilities. Often selected by film and TV companies as a venue for filming and/or product launches – Delta Force’s movie-set quality game zones are in a league of their own. ITV’s new series Law & Order (UK) recently filmed an episode at our Surrey Paintball Centre – the same venue as chosen by Warner Bros to be the UK launch venue for the Demi Moore film ‘GI Jane’.
Delta Force Paintball owns a large number of artillery pieces, armoured vehicles (including tanks), several airplanes and helicopters and, bizarrely, the only Scud Missile in private hands in the UK. The Scud and it’s supporting convoy of giant Soviet-era trucks featured in the 007 movie ‘Tomorrow Never Dies’ – it’s now out there in the Delta Force forest waiting to be discovered by you and your school group. Fun times!
