YPC Owner leads 400 players at UK’s biggest game
When the organisers of the UK’s biggest paintball game of 2012 needed a General to lead 400 players, they called on Andy Sables from YPC. The game played at Sennybridge Army Training Town in the middle of the Breacon Beacons in mid Wales is the UK’s biggest and most spectacular paintball game and was the worlds longest running game, a full 54 hours. The game started at 10am on Friday morning and ended at 4pm on Sunday afternoon, playing for a full 3 days and 2 nights.
During the night parts of the game, there were burning tanks, huge flairs and massive pyrotechnic explosions. It’s experiences like this and the idea’s brought back that makes the Yorkshire Paintball Centre what it is today. Yorkshire Paintball Centre is run by players (Some of the best in the UK) who’s main goal is to give you the best experience possible. We do it because we love playing as well.
Voted Best Site of the Year 2011
Yorkshire Paintball Centre was voted “Best Scenario Site” 2011. This award was given to us at the prestigious paintball industry awards held in Birmingham every year. Al Murray was also voted “General of the Year” for his roll in the Yorkshire Paintball Centre’s “Chocolate Factory game held in April”.
This award means so much to us as it’s voted for by the UK’s top paintball players. A huge achievement that we will strive to emulate in 2012.

Stepping Even Further!!
Guns Checked between EVERY Game
One of our marshals has one job and one job only. That is, between every game, he checks every single gun, ensuring it’s clean and perfect in every way. Only when he is 100% happy with a gun, will he place it onto the gun racks, ready for your next game. We are the ONLY paintball centre in the UK to go this far, to make sure your day is the best possible.
Goggles Checks EVERY day
We check every single pair of goggles, every day before they go out to you the player. We will not compromise on safety or your playing enjoyment.
Dedicated Host Marshal.
From the minute you walk through the entrance at YPC, until you leave exhausted at the end of the day, you will be looked after by our dedicated “Safe Area” marshal. He has one job during your day, and that’s to look after your every need. This “Host” marshal will be in the safe area to answer any questions that you may have, offer tips and help on playing, make sure you are ready for the next game. In fact he is at your disposal for the entire day.
