Paintballing is an out and out stag classic – and why wouldn’t it be? Running through the woods, hiding behind trees, painting your face with mud and shooting your mates over and over until they resemble a rainbow of pain? It never gets old! Think Rambo, think Arnold Schwarzenegger in Predator: this is the perfect stag weekend activity and will give you a great chance to bond with the boys as well as show 'em whose boss. Grab some balls of paint and get ready to go wild!
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)
