Generally speaking you cannot beat booking a paintball game with any one else other than direct with the site owner themselves, if you dont and book online with a ticket agency or similar then there is a very good chance you could be paying well over the odds and maybe missing out on a GAME ORGANISERS DEAL, something that most independant site owners offer  as standard. At our site for example I offer the following

Book 10+ players: You get a free day and 500 free paintballs

Book 20+ players: You get a free day and 1000 free paintballs

Book 30+ players: You get a free day, 2000 free paintballs and a free set of goggles with a built in fan and thermal lense

Book 50+ players: You get a free day, 2000 paintballs AND a free set of goggles with a built in fan and thermal lens and an entry level paintball marker thats yours to keep (not just for the day)

We also recently introduced a Gold V.I.P membership card that gives you 100 free paintballs when you come again and a Platinum V.I.P membership card that gives you 200 free paintballs when you come again.

Try getting anything like that online with a ticket agency......... (GOOD LUCK)! 

The only reason we do this is because if you have ever organised a group outing such as a paintballing day then you know just how much damned hard work it is for the organiser, by giving you these deals its just our way of saying "thanks for the effort mate". When you book a days paintball with any site you ring them , enquire about a certain date, we either say "yes thats ok" or not, if its ok then we pencil you in the game diary and sit back waiting for the deposits to come in, at that point thats our job done, but for you as the organiser thats where your job gets harder, you are the one that has to organise how many people want to go, possibly organise transport AND try to collect the deposits in {thats the hardest bit} then when you`ve got them in you then have to get the cash to us or send a cheque etc etc. So basically what im saying is look in your local Yellow Pages, Pink directory, Thompsons local, BT phonebook or any similar publication first and find the nearest independantly owned site to you and book with them direct. Dont assume that booking online with a ticket agency is cheaper because its NOT!! If you are going buy gift vouchers or tickets make sure you buy them from the site you are going to, its always better and cheaper

Speaking directly to the site owner or site operator you will always get more comprehensive, truthfull and important information than you will by trying to book online with a ticket agency and you will also find out if the site you want to play at do a similar offer or deal to us that you may otherwise have missed out on. Try to forget booking via ticket agencies particularly most of the ones on Ebay as they are basically and mostly more expensive than booking direct with your local paintball site. Ticket agencies such as Go Ballistic, Minisrty of Paintball, Nationwide Paintball and International Paintball Group or IPG/DELTA FORCE as they are also known will tell you to expect to get through a "minimum of 400 to 600 paintballs for a full day session" or A "minimum of 200 to 400 paintballs for a half day session" when infact almost all paintball sites you go to you should budget for around 500 paintballs for half a day and 1000 paintballs for a full day even for a first timer!!! We even get some new players get through 2000 paintballs in one day, and recently one guy got through 3000 before lunch!!! Agencies use the words "expect" and "minimum" to make it sound cheaper than it really is just to get your interest.. I CAN TELL YOU NOW ABSOLUTLY NO ONE CAN MAKE 200 PAINTBALLS LAST AN ENTIRE MORNING OR 400 PAINTBALL LAST AN ENTIRE DAY..Even if you hide at the back of the playing field you will still need to shoot at the enemy team when they come to get you or your flag!!! You will also need to watch out for the booking charges/fees agencies hit you with after you have bought the entry tickets, IT ALMOST ALWAYS WORKS OUT £10 PER PERSON MORE EXPENSIVE THAN BOOKING DIRECT AT YOUR LOCAL SITE {even with your first 100 SO CALLED "FREE PAINTBALLS" }!!!

Thanks for reading this I hope this guide is helpful and happy paintballing to you wherever you are.
