    Hi everyone, I'm looking for a little advice on starting out.

    I've been to a few paintball days in the past, always in a prearranged group such as a stag party etc. and now I'm getting the bug a little bit so I want to attend outside of a group if that makes sense.

    I've only played woodsball before and I'd like to stick in that format at least to start with, are there any sites that have "walk up days" where a new player without equipment can attend? I'm located in Doncaster so obviously I'm close to Bawtry Paintball fields.

    Would I have to join a team, and if so would that mean being pushed towards the tournament style games?

    Finally, would I need to buy my own equipment immediately or could I use hire guns like I have in the past at organised days out?

    Sorry for the really daft questions but I suppose it's better to ask here than stay in the dark!

    Someone else will be able to confirm for the area

    No-you don't need to be part of a team
    You can join or form a team, but it's not essential and any team does not have to be for a type of paintball
    (If going for tournaments then you do need a team, but that could also be a scratch team as a one off for a day)

    No - you don't need your own gear
    Most walkon sites will still offer a rental package at about £5 extra. I recommend this to start with before deciding what to buy

    Thanks for the replies! I'll be getting myself on a "Wall On" day (see, I'm learning already!) soon.

    Cheers!
