I have hired a local school sports hall for my party. Can we have a  party indoors?

Indoor parties can be great fun as we have a range of military themed barricades to make the games just as realistic as outdoors. Remember that the playing area must be around the size of a tennis court (or bigger) for the games to be a success. Some activities are better conducted outside.

It is important that all players wear suitable footwear for running either indoors or outdoors as appropriate. They should also wear comfortable clothing suitable for an active party.  Weather appropriate clothing is recommended to ensure everyone enjoys the event. We will discus the clothing needs dependent on you event.
