The extreme adrenalin activity of paintballing is becoming a huge draw across the whole of the United Kingdom with venues up and down the country taking bookings each and every day of the year. It is thought that the number of people participating has now exceeded one million and shows no sign of letting up.
The attraction is the team emphasis which can be incorporated into all manner of occasions. Many companies use the day as a bonding exercise bringing their staff together and building trust, communication and leadership skills amongst their employees. The chance to take a pop at the boss is also one that many seem to relish! The benefits have been shown to be manifold, with many reporting an upturn in moral and consequential man-hours in the immediate aftermath of a visit.
The other reason companies use the paintballing idea is for corporate days with potential clients, often giving themselves a head start amongst the competitiveness of the marketplace of their specific industry.
Birthdays are also a very big excuse for people booking a session. It is a fabulous opportunity to bring a group of friends and family together to celebrate a special day in an environment of fun and excitement, and it guarantees the competitive nature of people will come out, irrespective of their normal manner. You can guarantee that even the most placid of individual will not be able to resist getting right into the heart of the battle. Indeed many times it is the normally quiet member of the party who suddenly finds their fighting spirit.
With great value pricing, paintballing is a must try at least once activity, which many find completely addictive. So many return again and again, as the thrill cannot be replicated anywhere else in a group participating pursuit. Stag and hen parties make regular appearances, which is perfectly understandable taking into account the amazing experience everybody gets from the day. Enjoyment is guaranteed, as is the excitement and the rush that always comes with it.
Many use the occasion as an excuse to wear a fancy dress costume and many of the centres offer a range of outfits. A group of nuns or a gang of prisoners can often be seen during one of these comical battles, making the day even more memorable. The Marshall's will normally enter into the spirit of things and make sure the stag himself is suitably humiliated in some way.
Inevitably people do take these days seriously, but at the end of the day they are a laugh a minute and perfect way to bring a group together for some harmless fun. The appeal of the computer games that feature war battles has brought about a whole new group of potential players for some paintball action, as the teenage heroes try their hand at combat without the aid of a console.
The main thing is to have fun, but many people also take away increased confidence, better communication and team skills, an ability to plan, create a working strategy and an ability to react to pressure situations, all of which can be taken out and used in the real world.
