We have listed the most frequently asked questions (FAQ’s) here for your convenience.
What do I need to bring on the day?
Players should wear old, comfortable clothing and may also want to bring a change of clothes for the conclusion of the game. The most suitable footwear would be a light boot, but old trainers are most commonly worn. Paintball gloves are available to buy at the centre, or you can bring your own. You may also want to bring some money for purchasing additional paintballs.
Can I bring my own paintball equipment?
You can bring your own equipment to the centre, but it is always at the discretion of the Centre Manager whether you can use it. You can bring your own goggles, provided they are designed for paintball games and have not been modified in any way. You can bring your own gun, but it is subject to a chronograph test and must be cleared by the Centre Manager. We do NOT allow any customers’ own gas cylinders on site for ANY REASON.
Can I bring my own paintballs?
For health and safety reasons, and to maintain a consistent safety standard across all centres, you can only use paintballs issued by Delta Force on the day of your event. Think of it from another player’s perspective: We ensure our paintballs are of the right consistency to burst with as little effort as possible.
How many paintballs will I need?
There is no way of knowing how many paintballs any individual will use, as it depends on how trigger-happy you are. It is entirely up to each person how many paintballs they want to use but a good indication is about 200 paintballs per game zone. You can decide how many game zones you play and further paintballs are available to purchase on the day at your discretion.
Is paintball suitable for children?
Parents need to know about the nature of the activity and decide for themselves whether their particular child is hardy, and mature enough to participate in paintball. For more information, please see the FAQ concerning the minimum age below.
What is the minimum age?
Delta Force Paintball (New South Wales) has set its minimum playing age to be 12 years old (as of 1 July 2019). This is due to the laws in place, and we cannot change this age.
What food and drink is available at the centre?
There is a snack shop onsite where you can purchase chocolates, drinks, crisps and more.
Can we bring alcohol to the centre?
No alcohol is permitted on site. Any players who have been drinking will be excluded from the games and asked to leave the centre.
What happens on the day?
On arrival, you will be greeted by our friendly staff who will check you in. After you have filled out registration forms you will be kitted up with all the gear needed for the day and undergo a compulsory safety briefing. Then the action starts! You will play 10-12 varied games during a full day session, with short refreshment breaks in between to reload your paintballs and discuss tactics!
Do I need to fill out a registration form?
All players are required to complete a registration form before they begin play. Players under 16 years must have their form signed by an adult; we suggest you send these out with your invitations. The other parents should return their completed registration forms for you to bring to the paintball centre on the day of the event.
How many players do I need to bring?
There is no minimum or maximum number of required players; any group size is fine. However there may be a minimum number of players required to open the site if no other groups are booked in for the time and day you request.
Will my child be playing with adults?
Where possible we will join your group with a group of similar age. However, there are often groups of mixed ages (when parents like to play with their children, or there are older siblings joining in etc).
I’m not sure how many players I have, but I want to book now so that I don’t miss out on the date I want. What should I do?
You can make your booking now for the players that you have confirmed, assuring you your desired game date. You can then add additional players onto your booking up until a few days before your event.
What do I do if I get lost trying to find the centre?
To avoid getting lost we suggest you make sure all drivers in your group print the directions from the website and take these with them. Our directions are for guidance only, we recommend using a road map for more precise directions. If you do have trouble finding the centre, call us on 1300 422 989
one of our friendly staff will assist you in finding your centre.
What happens if it rains?
The games go ahead regardless, in all weather conditions. All the game zones are outdoors, but there are sheltered areas and lockers in the Base Camp where you can store your gear between games.
What times can we play?
A full day session is 9:00am (arrival) until approximately 4:00pm at most of our national centres. At local centres, operating times differ – please contact our booking office for more details.
What happens if a player does not turn up on the day and I have already paid for them?
All payments are non-refundable and non-transferable.
Can I use the paintballs if a player does not turn up on the day and I have already paid for them?
Unfortunately not. If anyone fails to attend the event on the date you have booked, the prepayment and paintballs for that person will be forfeited for the day. All payments are non-refundable and non-transferable.
