Ground Zero Airsoft at Somerley

Ground Zero is the latest generation in airsofting war games - an already established and reportedly the fastest growing leisure activity in the UK. We combine skirmishing and military simulation into action-packed, non-stop fun gaming days using a choice of realistic weapons that fire 6mm plastic bb balls. 

Areas of the woodland site include a Vietnam-style village, hill-top command post, bridge, fort, pond, prison camp, fire bunker, sniper hide and a watch tower with plenty of small weaving tunnels throughout the site, and a massive bunker system with additions being made all the time. 

You could be attacking Firebase Charlie, playing crazy assault on Stag Camp or capturing and holding the fort, all in purpose-built locations around the site. The friendly, professional Marshals will guide and advise, ensuring you have a fantastic experience. 

Ground Zero Airsoft takes place every other Sunday on the Somerley Estate if you want to join the action with our regular players. We are also available for private corporate bookings.
