New Safety Information For Battlezone Paintball | Battlezone Paintball


Update: Battlezone Yarm & Newcastle Are Open Now


Battlezone Edinburgh Will Reopen on April 26th

Please see below for safety advice regarding all of our activities at Battlezone, and specific information for paintball sessions.


Arriving at Battlezone

  • Bookings must be prepaid in full prior to arrival.
  • Waivers MUST be completed online prior to arrival as our touch screen facilities will not be in use. Complete your waver here
  • Under current regulations, you may book for others outside of your household (up to 30 people total), however you will be seated by household on individual tables when in our safe zone. You must stay at your allocated table when you are not participating in your chosen activity.
  • For hygiene reasons, we highly recommend visitors bring their own protective gloves if they own them. We have brand new Full Fingered Armoured Gloves available for purchase at all of our sites for just £5.
  • Please bring a face covering with you. You will be required to wear one whenever you leave your table in the safe camp, visit the site shop or use our toilet facilities. If you don't own one already, or if you need to purchase extra masks to use as spares, you may want to check out places like StringKing (get more info here) to buy the masks of your preference. This will be particularly important when you come to our establishment.
  • To reduce queuing & encourage social distancing, please remain in your vehicle when you arrive at a Battlezone venue until a member of staff speaks to you. They will let you know when you are free to come into the building. Once inside, please follow social distancing guidelines. We have purchased cornavirus safety signage from a website like Seton (click here) to remind you to keep two metres from those not in your household, wear face coverings and to regularly wash your hands.


Paintball Safety Information

  • In order to increase safety measures, we are no longer offering rental masks for paintball. Instead, ALL PAINTBALL BOOKINGS will receive their own brand new mask to keep worth £20 FOR FREE.
  • If you already own a mask* or you choose to visit us again with the mask we gave you, we will give you an EXTRA 200 PAINTBALLS instead (*your mask must meet CE & our own safety standards. If your mask isn’t deemed safe you will not be able to use it at one of our venues.)
  • We advise all customers to keep masks on at all times throughout their session.


Mini Paintball Safety Information

  • To offer the safest experience possible, we have decided to reduce our Mini Paintball sessions to two sessions a day on weekends only (no weekday sessions) with a 1 hour interval between.
  • Mini Paintball sessions do not come with a mask to keep. All rental equipment for Mini Paintball will be thoroughly disinfected prior to & immediately after use, including gloves & masks. The same equipment will not be used for at least 7 days to ensure any potential risks have long since disappeared before their next use.
  • Mini Paintball will be limited to a maximum of 20 people per session.
  • Contact us if you would like to purchase your own personal non-rental mask for Mini Paintball.
  • We advise all customers to keep masks on at all times throughout their session.


General Safety Measures We've Put in Place

  • Cleaning procedures have been increased throughout our facilities.
  • Anti-bacterial hand wash will be available for use. We recommend customers wash their hands before and after their sessions.
  • All overalls will only be used once per day before being sent away to be professionally washed in high temperatures and properly disinfected.
  • All equipment including rental guns will be thoroughly cleaned and disinfected with approved products after every session.
  • We have enough equipment at all of our sites to be able to rotate fresh apparatus to all of our groups, regardless of how busy we are.
  • Our pre-game safety briefings will address any extra safety measures put in place.
  • Increased cleaning regimes in all toilets and indoor areas.
  • Each private booking will be allocated their own table with appropriate space between groups.
  • We have limited our hot food selection to only hot dogs for the time being (vegetarian hot dogs are available, please let us know beforehand).

Battlezone’s Advice

  • Please put your own safety and the safety of others before anything else. Do not visit us simply because you feel you may miss out financially/on a fun day out. We are all in the same boat and we will all sadly have to make sacrifices.
  • Anyone with an underlying health problem as outlined above should think long and hard before visiting us.
  • Anyone that has contact with anyone that falls into the at-risk categories listed above should think extensively before coming to Battlezone.
  • Anyone exhibiting the symptoms associated with coronavirus (COVID-19) SHOULD NOT ATTEND an event at our venue.

Paintball is an industry built on making sure guests are safe at all times while in our care, and that does not change in the face of COVID-19. We will continue to provide you with a memorable experience while remaining safe.

If you have a booking with us and are either ill or concerned about your health, we ask that you follow public health recommendations and do not visit us. Despite our best efforts to remain operational for customers that wish to attend, we fully understand that circumstances and concerns are evolving daily so we are prepared to reschedule any previously booked session for any time within the next 6 months (unless government guidelines change) at no extra cost or we can cancel it (deposits non-refundable).
If you have any other queries or concerns, please contact us on 01642 605000 or email us on

In these uncertain times, we massively appreciate your continued support, and hopefully, we can all do our part to get through this.
