About Image

We stand out from the crowd because we firmly believe that an outdoor activity site should be run by experienced staff who have a genuine passion to deliver a memorable, fun and safe event.

All of our staff are;

  • PVG approved
  • Disclosure Scotland checked

We work hard to select some of the most enthusiastic and friendly people Aberdeenshire has to offer and train them well! Our staff are encouraged to take part in National Events and tournaments and their achievements include;

  • Being the only Tippmann technicians in Scotland (we are THE people other sites send their equipment to when it needs fixed and maintained)
  • Captains of semi-professional paintball teams (including the Scottish Champions Aberdeen Fusion)
  • Becoming fully qualified GNAS (Grand National Archery Society) instructors

To top it all off they are always ready for action and up for a good giggle... whether you fancy playing some bespoke paintball games against them or we ask them to dress up for our annual fundraising event they never fail to impress.

We love our team and we are sure you will too! Check out their mug shots in the Gallery for a sneak peak of our talent ;)

Battle Grounds was estalished in 2006 by a then 17 year old - Gilan. With a real passion for paintball and anything adrenaline fuelled, he built the business from the ground up and his achievements have recently been recognised with an award in the "Grampian Awards for Business Excellence" in the "Spirit of Enterprise" category.

With a focus on providing our customers with the highest quality experience possible, our wee local business has grown organically over the years and so too has the Battle Grounds family.... Hollie, Gilan's wife, came on board in 2009 and we now have a team of over 12 dedicated staff on hand.
