Delta Force - Sevenoaks - I can't really describe the difference, but Delta Force is obviously profit based, with the marshalls really doing nothing at all during the games, whereas NRG treat you as individuals and real people, and want you to have the best day you can.
Directions to the Field:
On the A25 between Westerham and Oxted
OXTED -------- LIMPSFIELD ----------- Grasshopper Inn ----- Clackett Lane ---------- NRG Paintball ------- WESTERHAM
Safety - All explained in full details before play. Two very secure safe zones, no problems thrgouhout day.
Fields - They use one field for just about all of the agmes, I think the ref said it was 38/40 acres, and we were free to wdien our tactics to encounter flanking teams etc. For the speedball players there was an arena boards field to keep your adrenaline pumping!
Hours of Operation - The day was 9am-4pm, I think we fitted in about 10 games, hard to remember. I think they are only open on weekends.
Prices - Not the cheapest I have seen, but by no means over expensive, great deals for kids.
Rules - Gun shots don't count, head shots do.
Services - 4x toilets - 1x kitchen with FREE tea, coffee and squash.
Proshop - wasn't one, buit they did seell ther basics at their reception, such as gloves.
Staff - Very friendly, catering people
Refs - This in my opinion is what made NRG Paintball stand out from many other paintball sites I have been to. At Delta Force, they are there to take you to your field, explain the objective and take you back. At NRG, when a paintball is fired, a marshall will be there before you can shout for a paint check. These guys were commited, they were obviously paintball veterans, and they seemed to care about us having a great day, whether they took a couple of paintballs in crossfire or not. I even saw one step between two players who got a bit angry with close range shooting and the marshall took a paintball for one of the guys (presidential bodyguard style!)
Players - A nice mix of newbies and experienced players. There were some walk-ons there, but the marshalls made sure they limited their markers to semi-auto without ramping in consideration for the younger players.
Food - As I said, free tea, coffee and orange squash. You get a free Quarter Pounder with cheese, onions and salad at lunch, and there are crisps, chocolate bars, pot noodles and a wide assortments of drinks availible to buy throughout the day.
Other - I am a paintball veteran, but I have never seen 'dispatches' used in rec-ball. When you sign in, you are given a number on your hand. The on the field, a marshall can take your nuimber when you perform a heroic feat, or embarass yourself in front of your whole team. These are all read out in each mission debrief, and usually bring up a few laughs. At the end of the day, the player who got the most gets a 'Player of the Day' and some voucher booklets were given out for players who got 'Most Kills' and 'Most Embarassing Death', it was a nice touch to an already great paintball site.
All in all, I recommend it to all
P.S - The day I went they had just upgraded all punter guns to Infernos from Tippman '98s, and installed a compressor filling at 3000psi which players could use themselves whenever they liked!

This is a nice ass field. It is one big woodball arena. The whole area can be utilised for tactics and manouveres. There are two story towers, a village with some buildings on stilts. There is also a large three story fortress. They set you an objective and they take you to the starting points. It can do anything from there.
It is very professionally run and they allow you to use your own guns (as long as they are not electric in any way, shape or form). All of the equipment is of very high quality. They use Tippman 98s. Compared to delta force, it is heavenly. Could do with a speedball area. I have never played it with inflatable bunkers, but I have heard it is fun.
They are also now doing airsoft, which could be pretty cool.
