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.

A 'Walk On' player is one who has not booked but has brought 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.
