FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

WHAT IS THE MINIMUM AGE TO PLAY PAINTBALL?


In Tasmania, the minimum age is 16 years or older.




WHEN ARE YOU OPEN?


Hobart Paintball is open by booking only. We accept bookings any day of the week. Our session times start on every odd hour, between sunrise and sunset. AT least 24 hours notice is generally required.




HOW LONG IS A SESSION?


We allow up to 2 hours per session. So an 11am booking will finish playing at or just before 1pm. Please arrive 20 minutes prior to start time so we can start on time.




DOES IT HURT?


In all honesty a little bit. The initial impact stings a little, but the pain subsides quickly. The first time you get shot is the worst, they get progressivley better!
We have players that play every second week, including several of our staff and we barely even notice hits any more.




DO YOU DO PARTIES?


We have a courtyard area with a bbq which is suitable for a range of celebrations, birthdays, bucks, hens, work events ect. We let you organise the party side of things, we will look after the paintball side of it.




DO YOU SELL FOOD & DRINKS?


We sell a range of alcoholic and non-alcoholic drinks. We have a range of snack items, but no substantial food items. We do have a BBQ in our courtyard, your welcome to bring snag's etc and use the barbie.




WHAT SHOULD I WEAR?


We provide full body overalls that go over any clothes you're wearing. So we suggest shorts and a t-shirt are generally idea to prevent yourself from over heating. Definitely wear sturdy, full enclosed foot wear. Boots or sneakers are best! If it has been raining, wearing cleats is a good idea! (if you have them) Do not wear open shoes like thongs or sandals, don't wear heels.




CAN I WEAR MY GLASSES & PLAY?


Yes you can. If you have particualrly large framed glasses, the mask might squash your glasses into your face and become uncomfortable. If you have contacts, we recommend wearing them




HOW MANY PEOPLE DO I NEED IN MY GROUP TO MAKE A BOOKING?


We need at least 6 people to proceed with a session. If you have 6 or more people to book with, we can take a booking any day of the week. If you have less than 6 people, including just yourself, you can still make submit a booking enquiry through our booking software. If there is already more than 6 people you can confirm immediately. If there is less than 6 people, your request will stay pending until the session has enough people.

DO YOU HAVE EFTPOS?


Yes we do, we accept all major bank card. Please note we do pass on our card processing fees and an additional 1.7% surcharge applies for card payments. We do also accept cash payment.




CAN I MAKE A BOOKING WITHOUT PAYING A DEPOSIT?


No, we only open for committed groups. That committment is proven and guaranteed with a deposit payment. It takes a lot of time to maintain the field, set up for a session and clean everything for a session. We are also required to have a certain number of staff on hand based on the number of customers we have. All of our staff are casual and often aren't available at short notice.
