When most people think of Christmas, chances are going paintballing isn’t the first thing that springs to mind. But at our office, we don’t like celebrating Christmas like every other office in this city- we don’t want any awkward staff parties, or terrible buffets. We want to celebrate the end of the year by having a once in a lifetime experience we will never forget, instead of an embarrassing party that we will be desperate to forget straight away!
It has become a tradition in our office to go paintballing when the festive season approaches. After battling it out to get the most sales all year round, we decided to start battling it out in a far more exciting way too. After doing it for the past few years, we now eagerly anticipate our time on the battlefield every year and Christmas just really wouldn’t be the same without it. This year was going to be no different; we know Christmastime has well and truly arrived when we’re heading to the Splat Paintball website and booking to go to war.
The staff at the venue are always incredibly friendly. They remember our faces when we return every year and love having a bit of banter with us too- they go out of their way to make sure we have a special Christmas battle. This year, we turned up dressed in Christmas outfits to make the events a little more interesting. Lots of people tell us that paintballing isn’t designed to get you into the Christmas spirit, but it is hard not to feel Christmassy when your paintball gear is covered with tinsel.
This year, we had one of the most fun paintballing games so far. The member of staff who was awarded salesperson of the year was singled out and made the target in one of our games, as every other player had to hunt him down and cover him with paintballs. After taking the title from right under our noses, this was a great way to get revenge! Aside from that, we also took part in all the usual paintball challenges, from capture the flag to speedball. At the end of the day, we couldn’t wait for next year to come around, so we could take part in the action all over again!
