Paintball Bury St Edmunds

Paintball Bury St Edmunds


Skirmish Paintball Games have two paintball venues serving the Bury St Edmunds area, one on the outskirts of Norwich, and the other North of Ipswich at Ufford.

At Skirmish Paintball Games we believe in “small paintball games”, and like to play between 10 to 12 players per team. Are maps are designed to encourage fire and movement, rather than static play which can happen if you cram to many players onto a paintball field. By keeping the numbers small the teams can gel, and proper tactics can be put in place and executed.

Two things that we will promise you at our paintball venues serving the Bury St Edmunds area are:

  1. You will not have to play the staff at any point of the day.
  2. We will not allow “pro paintball players” with their own equipment to join in with any games with rental players.

Skirmish Paintball is the only paintball company in the Bury St Edmunds area prepared to make this promise, and we do so as we have listened to are customers who have had their days spoilt by the above happening to them.   

Skirmish Paintball is also the only paintball company that will promise you a private game if you bring twenty paintball players plus. You may share the venue with other teams, but you will have your own paintball marshals, your own seating area, and you will be taken to play on the paintball maps by yourself.

Paintball is a great way to make people gel, and there for is a great way to start a stag or hen party were every one might not know each other. After a day’s paintballing they will all have a shared experience and the serious fun in the evening can start with them all having an “ice breaker” topic to start with.

If you want a full on stag do including nite life, why not try our Norwich paintball venue. We boast nine great paintball maps at this venue, it is only 10 minutes from Norwich city centre, and we can point you in the right direction for some reasonably priced hotels. Also we have some great contacts with gentleman’s bars and Mercy Nite club were not only can we get you a great deal, but can guarantee you entry. Norwich is only 45 miles from Bury St Edmunds, and is connected by the A11 which has been duelled from Thetford to within 2 miles of the venue.

Our Ipswich venue is only 35 miles from Bury St Edmunds, and has six great paintball maps and is ideal if you just want to do a day’s paintballing.

Skirmish paintball games use top of the range equipment, are overalls are professionally washed, the guns and goggles are maintained by a dedicated team. We use a thermal paintball goggle system that will reduce the chance of steaming up greatly, the lenses are maintained to a high standard. Customers are not allowed to clean there paintball goggles at skirmish, they are cleaned by members of staff who have clean microfiber cloths which prevent the goggles getting scratched.

One tip for all paintball players. The more clothing you wear, the more it will hurt.

I will explain. You need to keep cool, however good the goggles are, they will steam if you get excessively hot, so you need to get the heat away from your body……to be continued

Bury St Edmunds is an old Town in Suffolk which owes much of its present day layout to Abbott Baldwin who set it out in a grid pattern in 1080. The abbey was built during the 11th and 12th century and was occupied by Benedictine monks till 1539 when the dissolution of the monasteries took place under Henry the VIII.

The towns name derives from the fact that king St Edmund was buried there in the 10th century, thus we know it today as Bury St Edmunds. Under the monks Bury St Edmunds became a prosperous town and to this day several big companies still trade from the town, such as the famous Greene King brewery, with their flag ship ale known as Abbott ale.

In 1878 Gibraltar Barracks was opened in the town, and Bury St Edmunds was garrisoned for the first time in its history. It was occupied by the Suffolk regiment, but all that now remains is the regimental museum.

The first paintball venue to serve the Bury St Edmunds area was “Bury Blitz”, but that has now been superseded by Skirmish paintball games
