An amazing day was had by all, the parents that waited had tea and coffee on hand. 🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟
Alex Cottee - We visited NPF on a cold January day as a belated corporate Christmas get together, but despite the climate the day was fantastic from start to finish. We opted for 3 activities in the morning followed by an afternoon of paintball with a light buffet lunch (that was superb). Every activity was great, made all the better by the excellent staff (both in the booking office and leading the activities). Everyone had a brilliant time and we'll certainly be back again. 🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟

Helen Roberts - We used NPF Bassetts Pole for AVFC Academy Teambuilding and social activity days within the October Half term. Kerry was excellent with the booking process and flexibility with our timings needs. On the day check-in was smooth with large numbers, utilising the hive room gave us a good base. The activity leaders were great with lots of energy. The activities themselves (jungle escape, low impact paintballing, jungle laser and inflatable action games) were brilliantly led and very fun for the teams. 🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟
Nichola Leaf - Our son had an amazing low impact paintball 10th birthday party. All his friends had a great time too and the parents were impressed. Great facilities for waiting parents as they could sit around and enjoy a free warm drink. Thanks, we will be back to try some new activities. 🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟
Cathy Whitehouse - 1st class customer service. Originally booked June but due to covid only other date we could come was Oct. They made everything really easy. Really helpful. 🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟
Nicola Bennett - My son and his friends had an excellent party. The staff were all brilliant, friendly and helpful and engaged with the boys well. The venue is really well organised, plenty of space during covid times. And a good range of activities to chose from.

Craig Wright - A great day was had by all and all the staff were very helpful 🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟
Penny Beddows - It was my sons 13th birthday and we were looking for a covid safe venue for 9 of his friends. I NPF felt extremely covid safe they had hand sanitizers at all stations the children were in their own section . The head gear had been cleaned and kept in a plastic bag for 72 hours after they had been cleaned . The paint balling is an outside activity ...they were split into two teams and had 500 paint balls. The instructor explained how to use the paintball guns safely and stayed with them the whole time. The boys/ girl thoroughly enjoyed the experience,some of the children had not done it before and couldn't wait to do it again!. Every child received a certificate,the birthday child received a medal and the best performer which was the only girl in the teams received one too .I would highly recommend NPF Bassetts Pole if your celebrating your child's birthday or looking for an activity . 🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟
Fliss Harris - What a great day our boys had, the Marshall was brilliant with the kids. He was clear in his instruction and friendly. I was also really pleased with the efforts of cleanliness used during the pandemic. 🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟
Vicki Ankcorn - What can I say, family of 10 arrived for a 16th birthday, from start to finish we had a fabulous two hours it felt like we had been there all day but in a good way, didn't want it to end, fantastic Marshalls, Bones explaind things clearly and packs in a few laughs, great guy, would I recommend this hell yes if you want an action packed two hours to act out your inner GI Joe get down to NPF you won't be disappointed 🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟
Gail Guest - We all had a great time at your venue. Staf were friendly and helpful and nothing too much trouble. They were great with a hyper bunch of 11/12 year old footballers. Definitely will visit again 🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟
Joe Byrne - Just had my 14 y.o daughter for her first day paintballing at Bassetts Pole. She thoroughly enjoyed it - staff and other players went out of their way to ensure she was made welcome and enjoyed what I hope is to be the first of many visits for her. Keep up the good work! 🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟
Mari Hofmeyr - Perfect antidote at the moment - all outside, very spacious so easy to socially distance .alcohol gel everywhere and equipment sanitised and individually wrapped! 🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟

Teresa Eaton - We were very impressed how organised paintballing was. I myself didn't take part in the paintballing but watching how each of the groups were organised, kitted out, briefed and generally looked after, no matter what their age group, it was very professional. My family who did take part, enjoyed paintballing immensely and came away quite pumped up each telling their own stories of what happened beyond the green huts. Definitely an adventure park I will recommend to friends and family 🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟
gamble117 - over the years i have played here and i have played at other paintball events but here they have the best staff who are allways there to help you .By far the best arenas to play in and if you want a real blast play Diamond Wars here the end of every month. all in all a great experience. 🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟
Monkey Chops - Slick operation. I used to play there 30 years ago and now its my son's turn. Staff are friendly and professional, kit and play area are well maintained. Recommended! 🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟
Almatt - As always, the staff at Bassetts Pole were professional and friendly working with a group of 60 15/16 year olds. The food provided for students and staff was excellent and we always return with students having had a good days activity, which is safe and fun. Highly recommend a visit for school parties and family birthday parties. 🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟
Mark Goode - Best paintball centre in the UK the vibe the staff the other activities options they do there. Amazing and will blow your mind 🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟
Campbell Davison - Just completed a day of paintballing for my brother's stag do, what an experience. The site is so well set up, 17 arenas, 240odd acres, great staff and a superb experience. Definitely would recommend to anyone. 🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟
Tazdevil17 - I booked my daughters' party before Christmas - unfortunately a personal trauma struck our family and her party had to be postponed; Chris was fantastic and was empathetic and supported and did everything needed to facilitate our circumstances. We finally made the event and well worth every penny - we thoroughly enjoyed the day. Anthony our guide was lovely and patient and kept us to task. Fantastic fun for family, friends and work colleagues. For first timers, try the low impact paintballing. If you can, wear contacts if you wear specs. Always have another clean change of footwear. Try and take your gloves; there are no closed indoor areas if you are not participating - make sure you have appropriate outdoor wear. Don't forget to take a bag for muddy footwear. Thanks to Rick and staff in giving us such a great day. We are now planning our next event at NPF. 🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟
Kate C - Booked low impact paint balling for my sons 8th birthday party. What an amazing time they all had, great organization and booking experience too. A big thank you to Liz who really looked after us making sure they were all fed and watered the food was great. 🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟

Pete Newman - I cant say enough about the friendly staff, my 11 year old had a fantastic time paintballing, well worth the money, good set up, very clean and the food was great. We will be visiting again 🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟
glynevans435 - We booked the SWAT team as part of a stag do and had an excellent time. At £50 per head for hours of adrenaline induced fun, all ammo included, professional chilled out and friendly instructors and a stronghold to play havoc around, I would totally recommend this to anyone who is considering doing this for a stag. There's also the option to buy paint grenades, smoke and light flares if you so wish, but make sure to stock up before you're driven out to the stronghold.
With eleven of us, for the games we were split into two groups of four and one group of three. When two teams were pitched against one another, the team of three borrowed a member from the team sitting out. It was great fun either defending the embassy, staging an offensive or collecting items that have been placed in the maze like arena. It's good as well because the instructors referee the games on the walkway above the stronghold, so when you've been shot they can automatically clock whether you're "dead" or alternatively need to leave the arena, dust yourself off and return, depending on which game you're playing
You'll need to make sure you've got taxis booked to get there, and there's also a pub if you head out to the main road, if you're after a post game pint or food or just to kill some time. 🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟
Kyle Seeber - Great group fun for an afternoon. James was a great host for our stag do. 🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟
Dan Dineley - What a brilliant day. My first time paintballing and can't wait to go again. All the staff were amazing and the maps were fantastic. I can see why they are voted top centre in Europe. I would definitely recommend this to anyone and everyone. Cheers for the great day :) 🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟
Daniel McAteer - Best paintball venue I've ever been to. 🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟
Rhys Moger - Best paintball site in the UK if not the world amazing staff looks expensive at first but works out cheaper than other sites at the end of the day. I would highly recommend the dimond wars scenario that takes place last Sunday of the month for a true paintball experience the gun upgrades are also worth it for the first time not just for the extra distance and speed but the masks that fog up less improving your experience I drive 6 hours from South Wales and back on a Sunday to attend this site and its definitely worth worth it! 🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟
Ben Hubble - Had a great day down at the site, the staff there are friendly and will help with any problems you have, getting set up was quick and painless and the games throughout the day were amazing. Definitely the best place for paintball and has clearly earned the title of best site in Europe. Would recommend this to anyone looking for an action packed day out. 🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟
Plaw01 - Came for my stag do and had a great day out consisting of a few paintball games, sumo wrestling, inflatable assault course and finally the quad bikes. The site itself is superb and all the events were very well organised with excellent facilities.
Would recommend without hesitation. Looking forward to my next visit!!!!!!! 🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟
craigski81 - We went paintballing for my nephews 16th birthday. We choose to do the low impact option as we had some younger children. It was just as fun as the 'grown up' one. Good facilities, excellent staff and great service all at a fair price. 🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟
Mavoc ricrupakric - Great experience! Our group had tons of fun. Played low impact paintball and battle archery. Paintballing was great and the maps really nice. All the equipment was in good condition. The staff were professional and friendly. Just bare in mind that you might have to tweak the rules of battle archery to make it loads more fun. 🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟
Matt R - Loved my time at NPF Bassetts Pole, the atmosphere was brilliant, the prices for the guns or ammo are fair, and the amount of time you can spend in and the size of the arena is brilliant. 🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟
Katie A - Thank you so much for a wonderful day out - we had a great day to celebrate our friend's hen weekend and were so well looked after Thank you all 🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟
Stephanie Heeley - I just love this place. The best paintball place we have in the UK. The staff are like family and work so so hard! 🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟
nizmo7 - One of the best paintball venues in the UK. Would recommend them every time. Large venue with on site food. (Not many places do food) decent toilets. Not plastic loo's. Friendly helpful staff. Iv played here 3 times now and I'm never disappointed. 🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟
Shannon Jones - Great place for activities, brilliant paintball zones, very attentive staff 🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟
Craig Matthews - Thank you to Morgan and Jack who delivered a great paintball experience for a joint birthday party today. The 9 and 10 year olds loved it. Well done. 🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟
Debbie P - Went here for a birthday party of 4 children on one of their junior days. A brilliant venue with friendly, caring staff. They had fun activities for the children and made sure that each child was well looked after throughout the day. Great to see that the kids were able to play with people their own age too. The price for the day was great value for money and the kids enjoyed every second of it! Thank you! 🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟
Cloggs_Dalton - I cannot fault this place at all the staff are so friendly and helpful and it's really well organised. My son has joined recently with a Gold membership and he goes every other weekend to play. The staff are great with them and the other players are too. They are often in the adult games and love this just as much as the juniors. Overall great set up and a lovely hobby for them to have rather than hanging round doing nothing or playing their xbox. 🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟
cjw957 - Great site , everthing i had hoped for from a paintball site. 🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟
Haxter89 - Going as part of a trip for our school secondary school in West Bromwich (first time offered as an end of year trip) we could not have asked for anything better.
Staff - amazing down to the last detail very helpful professional and considerate of the students, always willing to help and go the extra mile.
Zones/game modes - again an amazing locations with some of the best zones i and many of the students who have been to others had seen and played, clean and well presented.
Price - to be expected from a top event location that offers so much with expert staff and equipment so well balanced.
Overall we had an adrenaline fuelled day full of fun, laughter and great competition thank you for hosting this and we are ready to take on the challenge again next year. 🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟
Shoooryukenn - I was part of a group of 20/21 and we attended on Saturday 17th. We were in hut Alpha and we had 2 Marshalls, 1 of which was 18 and had been there for about 2/3 years. I didn't get his name but amazing and phenomenal service from him. He definitely knows his target audience and deserves a raise. The other person who shined and was so friendly and lovely and just amazing was Emily Glenn. She helped me out in anything and everything and always done it with a smile
her face and was so bubbly.. she also deserves a raise. These 2 members are assets to the team and if you could please deliver my thanks to them. 🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟
Lawrence Campbell - It was an excellent day, and we really enjoyed the event, as it was the best paintball experience any of us had ever been on! The guns were kept in good condition, and the upgrades all looked and performed impressively. The environments were varied, large, and good for all out action or a more stealthy approach. The biggest positive for NPF is the amount of kit, and the high standard of the kit that they include within the price. The only downside was that some of the participants were being shot and wouldn't exit the game, but that's not NPF's fault. 🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟
John Wyllie - Was a great game day staff and Marshall’s were brilliant would recommend to anyone thinking of going 🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟
Stuart Mayo - Played at this fantastic paintball site again last week. Whenever I play there its always a brilliant experience. Great site, great service and excellent staff!!! 🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟
Carl Hornsby - Great staff that are welcoming and friendly, amazing arena's and facilities which gives a fantastic day overall. My son loved it that much, it's going to become a month day out for us. 🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟
Marie Nichols - Great place for our team Christmas celebration. Have returned for the last three years, and intend to return for a fourth. The Dragons loved their paintball experience. Great for team building and fun for kids and parents alike. Great, friendly staff too. Fantastic afternoon had by all! 🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟
Leanne Allard-McIlwraith - What a fabulous day!! We came for a works day out and we were not disappointed. The gentleman who led the games was amazing ! He was so funny. He really did make the day for us! The briefing and all the equipment was to a high standard. The games were all different and so much fun. The interaction from all of the staff and the service was second to none !! 🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟
Matthew Smith - I booked our activities as part of a stag. I spoke to Kerry a number of times who was absolutely superb sorting everything out etc especially during the current circumstances of covid. The people at each activity were great, especially the guy on our paintball session. Was amazed by the size of the place, especially the paint balling and how friendly, fun and enthusiastic all staff were 🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟
denise david - Due to personal reasons we had to change the date of our booking which the guys at nfl accommodated brilliantly. The instructor was great at running our session and we all had a brilliant time! Will definitely be returning! Thank you ! 🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟

James Montegue - One of the best sites in the UK in my opinion. Definitely one I like going back to. 🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟
Wayne Lewis - NPF is my favourite paintball venue, I go pretty much ever week and the staff and marshals are always friendly, helpful and have a good knowledge of the game. The game zones are great with Hanoi being my favourite. In general NPF is now what i call my home ground and its a site i highly recommend people to play at. I not only give this site a 5 out 5 rating but it should be 10 out of 5, as they always go that extra mile to make sure you have a cracking day of paintball. 🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟
