The expansion of activities in a paintball enterprise.


The Promoter’s paintball business has been successfully operating for over four years (since opening in June 2006).  

 The Promoter previously received funding to develop the Paintballing Course through Leader+ and BSP Farm Diversification Programme


Funded under Axis 3, through ARC North West, the project developed two outdoor activities as an add on to a current successful paintball enterprise.  This includes a highropes course, which incorporates a 550m long zip line which will be the longest in the UK and Ireland, and a zorbing site.  Items funded are:

  • Twin Zipline, Giant Swing, Harnesses, Zorbs
  • Specialist Trailer
  • Car Park Refurbishment
  • Development of Zorb Course and Fencing
  • Container for storage and reception area,
  • Marketing (logo, website, photos, brochure).


Expand the activity base to include Zorbing, Giant Swing and Zip Line.  This funding has provided the necessary assistance for the business to remain sustainable into the future.
