Paintball Games played at the
Yorkshire Paintball Centre including
Delta Force, Go Ballistic, The Bridge and Beirut
The centre piece of the Yorkshire Paintball Centre. Over 100m long and
standing 13m high, the YPC bridge is the largest purpose build paintball
bridge in Europe. We play the standard, two flag game in the bridge
field, this is a tribute to the first ever game of paintball, played in
the late 1970's in the US. You attack the opposing teams base, steal
their flag, and then take it back to your base. The returning flag must
be taken over the bridge and back to your base to win. Probably the best
paintball field in the UK. Only the best attacking teams win this one!!
Set in a clearing, Beirut is a challenging open air game zone. A
meandering river runs through the centre of the game area, impossible to
cross except over the strategically placed bridges. The river is bounded
by the shells of bombed out buildings that make the perfect hiding
places. High mounds of grass covered earth make the perfect barriers as
you make your way up the field. The object of the game is simple. Total
wipeout. Your team has to shoot out the whole of the opposing team to
win the game. Strategy and patience are what's needed to win this game.
One of the most difficult games to win during your day, especially if
you are on the attacking team. It's an attack and defend game. The
defending team starts and must stay around the 10,000sq ft bunker
complex. The attacking team must place four bombs at strategic points
around the bunker. If the attackers successfully plant the bombs, they
win. If the defenders stop the attackers from planting the bombs, then
the defenders win. To defend the game, players must spread out evenly
around the bunker. For the attackers to win, a co-ordinated flanking
move is necessary.
Played in quite an open part of woodland, the speedball zone is a
football pitch sized game area full of pyramids, cubes, boxes and tyres.
It's a variation on the flag game. This time there is one flag in the
centre of the game area and both teams are after it. The team that takes
the flag, then battles sucessfully to the opposing teams side wins.
Speedball is just as it sounds, it's a fast paced game where the team
with the fastest reflexes wins. This is where you really do need to Go
The radar game is just as it sounds. Each team starts in their own fort
at opposite sides of the game zone. Each fort has a large satelite
communications dish which must be protected at all costs. Between the
forts, there are hundreds of satelite dishes, ideal for cover. The idea
of the game is to infiltrate the opposing teams fort and destroy their
Attack the embassay like the US Delta Force special forces do.
A fiendishly difficult game. The Embassy is one of our newest game
zones. In the centre of the game zone is the embassy itself. A large,
two story building, surrounded by the ruins of former buildings. The
embassy has two entrances, one at your side and one at the oppositions
side. The idea of the game is to enter the embassy from your side,
collect your flag, escape from the embassy and plant your flag in the
opposing teams base. You have to go around the perimeter wall to get to
the oppositions territory where you can be ambushed at any time.
In between each game we return to the safe area for a drink and to re
stock with ammo. During this time, a dedicated marshal will clean,
inspect and re-air your gun so that when you return after a very short
break you can be assured that your gun is in tip top condition. At the
Yorkshire Paintball Centre we know that the most important part of the
day is a perfectly working gun.
