Thank you for your kind words - reassure the guys that the 'grenades' that we usually use will be back in stock shortly. I'll try to make sure they are in stock for your October visit - see you then!

Went again this year and it's as good, if not better than last year. Marshal was friendly and helpful to all players on the team and team mates were all good. The teams were balanced out fairly well so the games were fun.

Well organised, and the safety briefing was appropriately pitched. 8 very nervous girls had a wonderful afternoon of fun playing in groups mixed with adults and other children. Impressed with safety. Also lovely for adults sitting out - plenty of sitting space, refreshments very reasonably...More

Been there with a group of 12 kids and they all had a fantastic time. Is a great way to tire the kids to enjoy a quite evening :)
