What is the format of your sessions?
Depending on how many players you have and your chosen format, all events vary. Timings are dependent on your group size. Groups up to 20 have 60 minute events, for larger groups, time is increased accordingly.
All events begin with a safety briefing and a run down of how the Nerf Combat equipment works, the rules and time to practise using the Nerf Guns.
Is Nerf Combat safe?
NERF stands for Non-Expanding Recreational Foam so all Nerf ‘bullets’ are completely safe and harmless. All players are provided with a safety glasses to protect the eyes from any stray bullets. It is a great alternative to Paintball as it’s all the action without the pain or mess!
Is there enough equipment?
There will be ample guns and bullets provided for each group. Some of the Nerf games are designed so that not every player needs to be in possession of a gun to participate.
Can you play indoors or outdoors?
Between the months of October – March, Nerf Gun events must take place indoors. Outside of these months, Nerf Combat can absolutely be played outside. The more space you have, the better the games can be!
What if the weather isn’t good?
We can still host the event in varying weather conditions however if you have concerns, we recommend booking an indoor venue. Outside events may be cancelled in extreme conditions such as gale force winds, torrential rain or heavy snow.
Can groups drink alcohol whilst playing?
No, any groups found drinking alcohol whilst playing or intoxicated will be asked to sit out.

The remaining balance is due in one payment; this is due 21 days before your event.
All payments made within 35 days are non-refundable.
All payments MUST be complete, either online or via telephone.

What if I don’t know exact numbers when I need to book?

What ages do you run events for?
Kids/Junior events are run for kids/juniors from 8 years of age until 16 years.
Children’s events are run for set age groups, and can only be played in these groups and cannot be mixed.
Juniors aged 8 – 12
Teens aged 13 – 16
Do the kids/Juniors need to be of similar ages?
The guidelines for the children’s age groups can be found above.
We usually recommend the children’s ages to be within three years but exceptions are circumstantially allowed.
Do you provide Food/Party Rooms?
Food is not included in our packages. When booking your venue we recommend checking with them first if they can accommodate your requirements. Failing this, we recommend all groups visit fast food chains, or restaurants close to the venues.
What are the venue requirements for our own venue?
We require an open, flat and well-maintained space of at least 10m x 10m but preferably 10m x 15m and access to a power source so we can inflate the equipment. Nearby Parking will be required for our van. We recommend using local community halls, sports halls, local sports fields, back gardens or school facilities etc for sourcing a cost-effective suitable playing area. When booking your venue please take into account that we will need 30 minutes either side of your event time to set up the equipment before the event and pack it away after the event. Some venues may require you to book and pay for this time so we recommend checking this at the time of booking. Please note venues will need to be indoors between the months of October – March.
Can you provide a venue for us?
We do use a number of venues in set locations for other activities so if you require a venue to be provided for you, this can be done at an additional cost in certain locations (cost will vary depending on location and venue). The majority of venues we use are outdoor facilities with 3G pitches. If you specifically require an indoor venue, please let us know at the point of enquiry and if it cannot be accommodated, we will let you know.
