It’s the classic. The quintessential stag do activity. And we can see why, at heart men are just grown up kids and paintballing is the perfect way to go nuts in the great outdoors. We know it’s popular. That’s why the Stag Company goes out of its way to source only the most incredible locations for paintballing. Wherever you are we’ll give you a barrel full of laughs and high-octane action
What sort of paintball-er are you? Will you be the one taking everything too seriously, planning out tactical manoeuvres and military plans? Or are you hopped up on watching too many action films and your only plan is to go in guns blazing? Whichever you go for make sure that covering the groom-to-be in paint is priority number one – it’s a different type of stag hunting.
We’ve found that paintballing is the perfect activity for the bigger teams of lads, who may not all know one another. It provides the perfect ice-breaker to do early on in a trip. Across a few hours of emulsion-based warfare you’ll forge bonds that’ll last through your weekend and beyond. After your event you can compare bruises and war stories with one another.
Anyone whose spent a few hours running or ducking around a wood shooting at anything or anyone knows full well how much fun paintballing is, as well as how much those paintballs hurt when your shot at close range. This finely tuned mix of pleasure and pain is fast making paintballing a stag weekend classic. Paintballing is a sport in which players eliminate opponents from play by hitting them will pellets containing paint. The first paintballs were created in the 1970s by some guy called Charles who owned a paint company for use by foresters to mark trees and cattlemen to mark cows. Fast forward to 1976 and three friends (a stock trader, a S.W.A.T. officer and a green beret) chatting about hunting buffalo in Africa, decided to recreate the thrill of the hunt by hunting each other and idea of paintballing was conceived.
So if you fancy yourself as Rambo saving long lost Vietnam vets from behind enemy lines then paintballing is the perfect stag weekend activity. When else would you get the chance to shoot and inflict pain on your best mates?
Make sure you wear clothes and shoes that you don’t mind getting dirty because most of our paintballing activities take place outside. Also don’t forget to bring some cash to buy some extra paintballs and some snacks at the venue just in case.*

The hotel was perfect and the instructions and itinerary for the day were clear and easy to understand. All the lads had a really great time during the day with golfing and paint balling and we all thought that the guided bar crawl was brilliant. Going out and getting hammered, whilst being walked to the front of queues and getting free drinks when we got in was exactly what we wanted. Beth and Sophie (the girls who took us around) we absolutely brilliant and were really good fun to have a booze up with! The weekend was brilliant. Cheers!!! - Jack Moore (Stag Company Trust Pilot)
