Code of Practice for Site Operators
Paintball is a high energy, high adrenalin sport and the UKPSF's main focus is on promoting the enjoyment of the sport in a safe environment.
Accordingly, UKPSF member venues subscribe to a Code of Practice for Site Operators, which was developed by the UKPSF and which is regarded by those venues, insurers, and local and national government bodies alike as the industry standard for paintball venues.
Many of the top leisure insurance companies require paintball venues to adhere to the "UKPSF code of practice"
