Its just 2 mins off junction 46 of the M4, really easy to find.
From what i understand Teamforce Swansea is a recreational Weekend site that mainly caters for stag and birthday parties, allthough when i was there there was definately a few others that had a little more experience.
They have got all the bases covered to be competing with the big national companies, as i understand they are only a small family run business, they clearly know what they are doing and provide a great day out.
Delta Force, Task force Cows bridge and Amman Valley.Have been to the three before only once, but decided to try Teamforce in Swansea due to the average facilities elsewhere.
Booked a party of 32 people on the Thursday night and come Saturday they were prepared to open the paintball centre solely for my sons birthday party! Unfortunately due to a injured wrist I was unable to play on this particular day but the reviews of the gamezones and overall manner that Teamforce ran the day was quite pleasing to hear.
Staff : Very friendly and had a wide range of knowledge regarding paintball in the area. The lady who answered the phone had a very warming Austrian accent and had obviously dealt with parents before who didn't have a clue on what to book for a birthday party! 5 minutes later though and everything was booked and no later than the next morning I had my receipt, game day plan and a complete guide on what to wear, what to bring, FAQS, Location map etc. There is no way they used the Royal Mail as it wouldn't have come until my sons next birthday!
Prices: I guess these days as a parent pricing is everything! But honestly at Team force the prices were extremely reasonable especially as they catered and supplied a birthday cake within the price.
Paintballs worked out to be around 5-6 pounds per tub as I bought in bulk which again was suggested to me by the staff (Saving me a total of £42 compared to individual pots... so kudos to them for saving me a pricier transaction!)
9/10 (Would have been a 10 if the paint balls were free !)
Rules and Safety: At first I was very worried as I was responsible for 30 children that weren't mine (..Fortunately!) but the staff and the centre manager soon dispersed of any worries I had during the "Brief of Safety"
They emphasized time and time again about the removal of helmets and they seemed to have a very good foothold for safety. I was very impressed by the ratio of staff to players also as it meant there were prying eyes everywhere to watch the kids!
8/10 (-2 for even making myself listen to the brief even though I wasn't playing! I was told it was to re-emphasize the rules to the children though so I guess it was a valid point
Players: Were a right handful all day for the staff. You know what kids are alike with guns fields and BBQ lunches. Absolute nightmare! But again the staff were brilliant with them. Very organized seeing as the children were all "sugared up"
5/10 for my players!
Facilities : Being an outdoor venue, I was pleasantly surprised by the toilet facilities. They were extremely clean and in the times I did use the facilities a female staff member always seemed to be on hand opping up the soap or towel dispensers.
9/10 ( -1 for a cold toilet seat... That is really the only fault I could think of)
Food: Food was pleasant and something you typically want to keep young and energetic children going. Sausages, Burgers, Bacon and a salad (which was only eaten by the two or three adults in the group) The Kids demolished the food otherwise at lunch and the chef was very friendly even cooking a vegetarian burger for one of the adults.
Overall: Excellent, I can honestly see why the Swansea City football team went the other day along with the Scarlet's / Osprey rugby . I normally hate organising birthday parties but this was one was definetly worth the effort as the kids seemed to have so much fun even in the bitterly cold temperatures!

junction 46 on the M4, Fourth Turning off the round about,follow the signs
Teamforce paintball field is an ex-Army run young field based in swansea,UK. It has a carpark with space for 20 cars, An indoor reception with a great base camp and a good shop.They are equipped with inferno mark two makers and JT full headsheilds.You can bring your own equipment but you need a form signed at the reception. They really get let down at the game zones though they are too small in order to fit more zones in (bad idea).
that isnt all the bad part. The entire area is water logged! a major company keeps un-loading dirty waste water into the area.
They have a barbeque for an extra £5.The marshall's are kind and very proffesional.
Prices start from £12 for entry and 100 paintballs
It is £7 pound for 100 extra paintballs.£3.50 for smoke grenades.
