Your arrival time at
Phoenix Paintball will be confirmed at booking. Sessions start at
either 10:00 am or 12:00 noon rain, hail or shine. (Foreseeable
extreme weather conditions may require play being cancelled,

What does a
"session" consist of?
Upon arriving you will
sign in, choose and pay for an initial package and any extra gear
required, put on your overalls and listen to a safety briefing and
You will be issued your safety gear and marker, assigned to a team
and taken to the first field. We generally say a 500 round
package gets you a session time of around 3 hours. This is from arriving
till handing back the gear. Usually in a group of people, half of
them will purchase more paint in this time, so it often doesnít
make the session run longer, they just play harder!! We donít
have rigid finishing times, apart from late in the afternoon when we must
be finished by 6pm, so if you are still having fun and getting
extra paint, you can play on till your group is either out of
paint, time, energy or money -which ever comes first!!
During your session you
will move through a variety of fields and play multiple games at
each. Some games may be capture the flag or attack and defend a
bunker, some have one life others have multiple lives. Games
vary in length. There is plenty of time to stop and chat, compare
notes, plan attacks etc between games. We donít just give you a
loaded gun and leave you to your own devices for hours!! We want
you to enjoy your day without the rush of a following group.
The last shots will be
fired by 6:00 pm, or when you have simply had enough, although in
winter we seem to wind up earlier as it gets dark sooner.
Phoenix Paintball provides free bottled water so don't bother
bringing your own..
The Phoenix Paintball
site has toilets and there are good local community BBQ facilities
at Rawson and Erica. If heading bush Coppers Creek or Brunton's
Bridge are good sites.
Showers are available
at the local indoor pool (Nov - April) for a small fee of $2.00 per
person. This is good for those wanting to go out afterwards. The
pool is only a short drive from the gate - literally within 500
meters. Please let staffk now if youíd like to utilise this as we
have to inform the pool that your group is coming.

paintballs we supply are manufactured and maintained to precise
