s we have to drive through npf to get to fireball we have to be on site for 9.10am


So we can take the cars through? That makes things a bit easier. At the old Phoenix site we had to lug all our gear through the paintball site and then be locked in!

yes can drive through , damm i keen but i not that keen lol , i had to run up it once in the snow and i nearly died lol

Trickley Coppice

London Road

Sutton Coldfield

West Midlands

B75 5SA

To access the Fireball Squadron site leave the Bassetts Pole roundabout as if to enter McDonalds.
To the left of McDonalds, you will see the entrance to the NPF (National Paintball Fields).
Drive down the track to the NPF reception and bear right, pass the NPF reception and drive through the paintball site. DRIVE SLOWLY!!!
Look for a fork in the road and turn left, continue to follow the track through some old vehicles until you exit the paintball site and arrive at the Fireball Car parking area.
The entrance to the site is over a covered footbridge to the left of the road


plenty of parking then you will see a small entrance like the photo below and that takes you into fireball :) , a lot of us tend to get to maccies early around 7.45 have some munchies then head down :) , just drive slowly through the npf bit as they get a bit testy sometimes :)

Need to discuss with SHMBO


Well, she didn't say no (even if she didn't quite say yes) so put me down, German please.

If you are stuck for numbers, could do British instead.

Unfortunately I can't make this, but good luck with it. Fireball's a good site for a small numbers game and the top end of the site allows for some really good movement through cover.
