A day at Skirmish begins at 09:30 where you will first meet our trained staff and begin the important registration and sign in process*, after which you will be kitted out with the majority of your kit to help you through the day, including a set of camouflage overalls, goggles, and battle pack. Body armour is also available on request, and is given to women and children as standard (please note that during peak times body armour demand can exceed our supply, whilst we make every effort to ensure everyone who wants it, gets it, this can sometimes not be the case). Don’t worry that you haven’t got the guns yet – they come later!
*If you want to save time at this point of the day, our disclaimers are available to download from here, allowing you to fill out your details at your own leisure and just turn up on the day with no paperwork to fill out!!
After this you will be introduced to your marshals, and be told who you will be playing with, and given a comprehensive safety briefing by one of your marshals, detailing all the site rules and regulations, explaining how the guns work and also to answer any questions you may have about your day. At this point if your package does not include lunch it is important you order it before you set out for your first games, as orders after this point cannot be accepted.
Your marshals will then lead you out to your first set of games, and will stay with you throughout your day at Skirmish to ensure that not only are games played the way they are meant to be, but also to ensure that all players are as safe as possible at all times. Your safety is our highest priority at Skirmish and so if you have any doubts or feel unsafe in any way please don’t hesitate to speak to your marshals who will be happy to help in any way they can.
After around 6/8 action packed games, we will break for lunch around 12:30 if you have pre ordered food it will be ready for you. This time is your own to relax and have a chat about the morning’s games and prepare for the rest of your day.
After you have had your lunch break your assigned marshals will take you back out onto the fields, where you will have the opportunity to play new games in different fields and continue battle with the other side! Once you have played your afternoon’s games you will return to the safe zone and de-kit, at which point you are free to leave – hopefully having had a fantastic day with your friends and having shot the other team more than they shot you!
Throughout your day at Skirmish you will find yourself in many settings – a killing house where you need to defend your house against the attackers at all costs, attacking a fort through the undergrowth, or even just running around shooting as many people as possible on one of our Speedball fields! Every game has been designed to offer new challenges and opportunities from the ground up to give you maximum enjoyment and to really get your blood pumping!
