Whats your Site Age Limit?

Anyone can play providing that they are over the age of 14. Players between 14 and 18 must have a guardian playing on Site and have their consent form countersigned.

How much do your Events cost?

Price per Open Day will be £30.00 with a £5.00 discount for Students, Armed Forces & Emergency Services personnel.


A further £5.00 discount can be applied to rates if the player books in advance and pays a £10.00 deposit via the website. This discount is only available on Sunday open day events and does not apply to special event days.  Some larger special events require the full payment upfront to book your place, this is due to the high level of investment and time we place in to the days.

Rentals packages are £20.00 each and include full face protection and 3000 x 0.2g BB's. Packages must be paid in full and in advance, additional rental weapons above bookings will be on a first come first served basis.

Do I have to come as part of a group?

You can come as part of a group or on your own, either way you’ll be made welcome and everything  will be explained to you.


How are the teams split?

Most games run with two teams, each being given objectives which they have to try and achieve.  Marshals are provided to maintain fairness and safety and sometimes marshals will join the playing teams to offer backup or for specific event scenarios.


If you come with friends we’ll do our best to get you all on the same team, don't worry about being separated. Most players are friendly and inclusive, so if you want to come alone or in a small group you can be sure to find plenty of people to join when you're assigned to a team.


Special Event days may be subject to special team requirements, as with all our Special Event rules if you sign up for such an event you'll be notified of any special rules well before the event.


What does 'Walk On' mean?

A 'Walk On' player is one who has bought everything they need to play, as opposed to a 'Hire' player who'll need to rent the equipment from us and who has not paid a deposit.  They run the risk of not getting a place on the day as open days often are fully booked but will have to pay the higher rate of £30.00.


What do I get in the Hire package?

Our Hire package of £20.00 consists of an primary weapon, a face mask and 3300 x 0.2g BB’s.

Smoke grenades and Mk 5's are available for an additional fee (over 18's only). You'll be given instruction on how to safely use the weapons and all safety instructions will be fully explained.

Many players bring spare guns, and South Coast CQB has a number of rental weapons that can be hired or in some cases lent out during play. It's advised that where possible you will have at least one spare weapon with you; even if this is only a pistol. Additionally one of our onsite marshals will be technically competent and may be able to diagnose and fix some minor faults on the day free of charge.
