World’s Largest Paintball Bridge

If you book your event at the Yorkshire Paintball Centre, we have something special for you to play paintball games on and around.

During your day you will play in the “Bridge” field. At its centre is the world’s biggest paintball bridge. It stands at over 50 feet tall and well over 300 feet long. We’ve been in touch with paintball media in the USA (The home of immense paintball structures), and they have not heard of a more enormous bridge.

We play a standard two-flag game on the bridge field. It’s fitting to play the world’s first paintball game on the world’s biggest bridge.

Not for you if you are afraid of heights!!

Paintball Awards “Best Site Award”

Airfield Map

Every year, the “UK Paintball Awards” hosts its annual dinner. Professional players voted Just One Centre ” Best Site. The Yorkshire Outdoor Activity Park is one of only three venues to win this prestigious award. The best players in the UK recognise it, and it is a highly sought-after achievement. We are very proud to be one of the three best venues in the UK. The other award-winning venues are NPF in Birmingham and Campaign Paintball Park in Surrey.

Why Yorkshire Outdoor Activity Park?


1) Award-Winning Venue – We are among the only winners of the UK Paintball Awards “Best Site Award”. The highest honour and most prestigious awards can be given to a venue.

2) UKPSF Trained Marshals – We were part of the team that developed the UKPSF Marshal Training Programme. 

3) The UK’s Greatest Maps – See the above award. We also have the world’s “Biggest” purpose-built bridge. Look at the videos section of this website, specifically the “Armageddon” game, which is considered the most intense 7 minutes of paintball the UK has ever seen.

4) Long Established – since 1988.

Going the extra mile with Guns

Between every game, one of our trained Field Marshals has one job and one job only. This marshal checks every single gun, making sure it’s clean, safe, efficient, and optimal in every way. 

When this trained marshal is 100% happy with a gun, they will place it onto the gun racks, ready for your next game. 

We are the only centre in the UK to go this far and do this to make sure your day is the best possible. If you regularly play, you will understand how important this facility is.

Competition Guns

Competition Paintball Guns

We use the latest competition guns at Yorkshire Outdoor Activity Park.
These are not like other “Site Guns”. These are genuine competition-grade guns. They are extraordinarily accurate and reliable. The quality of the gun is essential. If you have the best guns available, and they are checked and cleaned between every game, you can be confident that when you need to take that all-important shot, you will have the hardware to do it.

Goggles Checks EVERY Day

Yorkshire Paintball Centre goggles checked every day.

Much like the guns, we check every pair of goggles daily to ensure they are perfect. We will not compromise your safety or your enjoyment under any circumstances. Your goggles will be safe, well-fitted, and clean, and the lens will not be damaged.
All of our goggles are fitted with “Thermal” lenses. These are like double glazing, so don’t fog up.

Dedicated Host & Field Marshalls

Yorkshire Paintball Centre. Dedicated host marshal.

From the minute you walk through the park entrance until you leave exhausted at the end of your event, our dedicated host marshal will look after you. This marshal has one job during your event: to look after your every need. This host marshal will be in the safe area to answer any questions, offer tips and help on playing, and ensure you are ready for the next game.
All of our marshals are UKPSF-trained and qualified.


Paintballer Shooting

As an organiser, you must give your group the best paintball game experience possible because your group will rely on you. There may be venues closer to you, but we urge you to visit them and then visit us before you book. It could be the difference between a great event that your group will discuss for years to come and a poor event that your friends quickly want to forget.


We are situated in the heart of Yorkshire, about 6 miles South of York, 5 miles North of Selby, and around 20 miles East of Leeds. We are just off the A19, so wherever you are, it doesn’t take long to get to us. We are about 5 minutes from Selby, 10 minutes from York, and 25 minutes from Leeds.

Paintball Age Restrictions

Paintball has always been an adult game (12 years +), but children can now play from age 10+ (School Year 5). If you are looking for children’s paintball. Click Here – Kids Paintball Games
