Paintball without the Pain!

Unique Outdoors & the Burghfield Santa Cruisers bring you a day of Hi-Tech Laser Skirmish fun in the woodlands of Wokefield Park!

With Christmas over it is time for the Burghfield Santas to relax, and they love nothing more than shooting lasers at each other in the woods with friends!

In aid of Thames Valley and Chiltern Air Ambulance, Unique Outdoors and the Burghfield Santa Cruisers have organized a day at Wokefield for 12 teams to get together and compete to find the ultimate team of laser warriors!

2 hour Morning, mid day and afternoon combat sessions will be divided into six 15-20min games, so you can try different strategies and tactics to ensure overall victory.

A mixed morning session will allow the smaller ones aged 8 to 12 to have a go, budding combat elves will need to be strong enough to hold the heavy gun and run around! The later sessions, whilst not exclusively adult-only may well be too ‘intense’ for younger ones!

"All money raised for entry will go to Thames Valley and Chiltern Air Ambulance Trust to help us reach our goal of £10,000."

Sign your team up today for a fun filled tournament of woodland mayhem

6 games in each two hour tournament for just £15 per adult and £10 for juniors
