what our amazing players say

Cracking day at Skirmish today. First time airsofting here and out of a great many sites over the years have to say we were keenly impressed.

Clark D

Best airsoft around. Well organised and marshalled.

Ben R

A great day out for groups and people who enjoy the sport. 100% better than paintballing.

Martin V

Excellent marshals, excellent site. What more is there to say? Had most of my favourite airsoft memory’s here. A really good day out.

Josh S

One of my favourite sites, love it here. Great for new players and experienced too.

Mark D

Really good place to Airsoft, people are really nice and helpful, and they don’t allow cheating, cannot say the same about other company’s.

Daniel W

Great day for all airsofters.

Luke W

An excellent airsoft venue, it’s the marshalling that really stands out though. If you’re reading this, you must have some interest: seriously, you’d be mad not to check Skirmish out!

Mos D

Went with a group to this airsoft arena, and I have to say that I haven’t had that much fun in a while. I strongly encourage anyone wanting to go.

Lewis L

First time airsofting and despite nerves in the beginning, I ended the day absolutely loving it. The staff were super friendly and helpful. Really awesome day, would definitely go again!

Chantelle S

This was my first attempt at Airsoft, great venue, informative staff and good facilities. Playing with a good crew made the experience even better.

Wayne S

Been my favourite site since day one of Airsofting, always really friendly staff on site, really fun game objectives, would recommend anyone to visit!

Everybody who attended for the day were friendly and everybody felt welcome, even a newbie like me…. Think I may have caught the Airsoft bug…. 5 Stars.
