JUNIOR Paintball


JUNIOR PAINTBALL 8-11 year olds

Paintball has evolved over recent years, gone are the days of “bruises” and painful hits.

This is because we use smaller 50 caliber paintballs which are around 1/3 the size of a standard 68 caliber Paintball.

The minimum age for our Low impact paintball sessions 8 years old, making it the perfect activity to celebrate a Paintball birthday party!

How do teams work? – All groups of 4 or more people are split into 2 teams to play against each other. This is to ensure teams are evenly mixed, and a whole group doesn’t end up on the winning, or losing side! Splitting groups into teams is part of our company policy to ensure everyone has a great day!

(trust us, from our 25+ years of experience this is the best way to make sure everyone has a great day, and you get to shoot your mates!)

If you do not want your group to be mixed with other groups, then we can offer private sessions for a minimum of 20 people (must be pre-booked!)

Our ‘Call of Duty” and “Fortnight” inspired game maps include real tanks, helicopters, underground bunkers, and even a boat!

Session Times

We run 3 Low impact sessions per day;
10.00am – 12.00pm
12.00pm – 2.00pm
2.00pm – 4.00pm

great value packages!

Low Impact Paintball is played on exactly the same game fields, and using the same paintball guns as standard Paintball (even the big paintballers use these smaller paintballs now!)

The paintballs travel just as fast and fly just as far as a standard Paintball, but here are the main differences when booking a low impact paintball session:

2 hour session

Not too long and not too short, our instructors ensure the group is completely entertained for a full 2 hours, so you can sit back and grab a cup of coffee!

5 Paintball games

We have carefully worked out how many games we can play in the 2 hour session, making the best use of the paintballs included in the package.

All inclusive price

In our all inclusive Packages, each young person has their own allocation of paintballs, which our staff “ration” to them throughout the session.

No Hidden costs

We ensure that there are no hidden extra costs, everything is included in the price! We even offer “Party Packages” which can include food if pre-booked.

Full head goggles

We provide Low impact paintballers with “Full head” goggles for added protection and peace of mind.


We provide freshly laundered all in one camouflaged coveralls in a range of sizes.

Lighter Air bottles

We use smaller air bottles for young people, which makes them more lightweight and easier to carry.

Group Instructors

Of course we would not be able to provide a great day out without our friendly, trained, and first aid qualified instructors!
They are not only there to make your groups day fun, but also to instruct each participant on how to use the equipment, and keeping safety in mind.

With Safety in mind

First Class safety

Bristol Activity Centre has a first class safety record. Parents often comment that we take safety more seriously than many other Paintball providers.

Open Sessions

We join lots of smaller groups together for maximum fun! So its no problem if you only have 2 or 3 people in your group – we will tag you on to another group.

Low Impact Paintball is for 8-11 year olds, so all parcipients will be of a similar age!

Private sessions

Most young people love joining in with other groups, but we have the option of a private session *A minimum of 20 people required, must be pre-booked.

Please note, your group will NOT be in a private session unless specified in writing on your booking confirmation.

Restricted Numbers

We run 3 Low Impact Paintball sessions per day, however numbers are restricted to ensure groups are a safe manageable size for our trained instructors.

So we recommend booking well in advance to avoid disappointment!

Yes! Parent or Legal Guardian consent forms

must be completed online for each person under the age of 18, by their parent or legal guardian before they can play.

The group organiser will be sent a unique link which they must share with all the parents in the group.

We supply all standard equipment, and all-in-one coveralls for the players to wear over the top of their own clothing.
We also supply as standard, full-head Paintball goggles that are fitted and checked by our staff to ensure that they fit correctly and safely, and are comfortable to wear.

Don’t worry, Paintballs wash out of clothes!
So we recommend just wearing loose comfortable clothing, and we will provide coveralls to put over the top.

Tip: Please do not be tempted to wrap up in hoodies and fleeces, players can get quite hot, and these thick layers will make you hot and steam up your paintball goggles!

All participants will need to be wearing suitable footwear, no open toed footwear is permitted, we recommend sturdy walking boots with good grip – as there is occasionally mud, and uneven ground.

Its also recommended to bring a good pair of gloves, although we do have some armoured paintball gloves available.

We would also suggest that bringing a change of clothing might be a good idea, especially if its wet – we have found people actually really enjoy playing paintball in rain, plus people love getting a bit muddy!

A huge variety of Drinks and snacks are always available from our on-site shop at very reasonable prices. If you have any special, party food requirements. Please let us know in advance.

We politely ask that only food purchased from our on-site shop is consumed on the premises.

We’re happy for our customers to bring along their own birthday cakes.

Please ensure that there is at least one “responsible adult” in attendance to ensure that all the children participating have understood our pre-activity safety briefing, and to ensure that they are booked in.

Absolutely! Printable party invites can be found on our downloads section here Downloads

Also If you have any special requests to make the day more special such as putting up banners or balloons, then we are happy to help you get these put up before the Birthday person arrives!

Paintball can be both physically demanding and require a certain level physical ability.
However we encourage wheelchair users (with off road wheelchairs) and those of any ability to have a go if they wish to!

While we always welcome players with a disability. Both the player(s) and their parents or guardians need to be aware of the nature of Paintball and the terrain that we play on. And therefore make a subsequent assessment of their ability to safely enjoy the activity they wish to pursue, based upon their own physical ability and overall disability.

Bristol Activity Centre only uses the highest quality protective Low Impact Paintballing equipment and all of our guests receive comprehensive instruction on their use. Games are fully supervised at all times by our trained and experienced marshals who ensure that safety and game rules are being followed, and are always on hand to assist with first aid if needed.
