So what is
Paintball 2.0 and how does it benefit you.
Paintball 2.0 is the most important change to
paintball in the last 25 years. It brings paintball squarely into the
21st century. The paintballs fire at a much higher velocity, they go
further than traditional paintballs (So you can shoot people further
away), they are more accurate and they hit with only a fraction of the
energy compared to a standard paintball used elsewhere.
does this mean to you as a player. More accurate shots over a longer
distance really enhance the game, no more paintballs winging off all
over the place causing frustration. This accuracy and distance is
achieved through a higher velocity than a standard paintball. The new
Paintball 2.0 hits with around 1/3 of the energy of a standard
paintball. This means it doesn't hurt as much as traditional paintball
and certainly doesn't leave the bruises that you may have seen players
with in the past. New Paintball 2.0 opens up the game to people who have
been reluctant to play, including younger players (We have a version of
paintball 2.0 for 10-12 year olds where we set the guns at a lower
velocity) and women. In fact over the last couple of months, we have
seen the number of female players increase dramatically.
this is achieved in a very very simple way.......The paintball is simply

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.

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
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
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.
