Description of Mepal Outdoor Centre

A unique Activity Centre set on the shores of a 20 acre lake in the Cambridgeshire Fens, offering a wide range of affordable water and land based activities for families, school and youth groups and corporate clients.

The Mepal Outdoor Centre is a very unusual recreation, leisure and training resource, unique in East Anglia (at least) for its blend of facilities, programme and clients. Although in the middle of the Cambridgeshire Fens, Mepal is less than 40 minutes drive away from Peterborough, Cambridge, Newmarket, Wisbech and Huntingdon!

The Centre is situated on the West side of the A141 (Ely - March road), between Sutton and Chatteris. The Centre offers a wide range of facilities for watersports, adventurous activities and children's play.

Modern purpose built premises include dormitories, showers, toilets, dining room, lecture room, lounge, sports hall and an indoor climbing centre, built in the shores of a twenty acre lake.

Paintballing

Close

A combination of childhood ‘hide and seek’ and ‘tag’ but much more exciting! We don’t run ‘turn up and play’ paintball games but cater for groups of between 12 and 30 players with the emphasis on teamwork, co-operation, planning and strategy. The site has a number of different areas.... wood and scrub, beach, hill fort, village and games are structured to make the most of the varied terrain.
We prefer to play lots of short games rather than a few long ones, so that if you are eliminated early on, you wont have long to sit out until the next game. Camo coveralls, face mask and snood are compulsory protective wear and we recommend that you wear gloves (gardening gloves are ideal) with loose fitting long sleeved clothing under the coveralls and boots with ankle support as there are lots of rabbit holes on the site. The site is usually quite dry, so trainers are OK, but don’t offer much support).
We use Tippmann or Mercury markers with good quality paintballs and for safety reasons do not permit the use of your own paintballs or markers. We adjust the velocity of our markers for fairly close range shooting rather than sniping so that they don’t hurt too much as very close range, but please do note.... paintballs at close range can raise a bruise and may even break the skin on knuckles.... hence the advisability of wearing gloves.

Min-Age: 12 years (18 if unaccompanied)

Price Per Person: From £27

includes all gas and includes 300 paintballs which is plenty if you are playing stategically.
