AIRSOFT CQB CENTRE

NEW UPDATE AS AT 28TH MARCH 2021

 

Our planned reopening on the 29th of March (Today) has been postponed to the 12th of April 2021. This means that we will remain closed until the 12th of April. This decision is a result of new government guidelines published on the 26th of March 2021 (See more details below).

 

All bookings that have been taken between the 29th and the 12th of April will be transferred to the next available date or date that is suitable to you in 2021. 

 

We are currently working on plans for extra games and the use of additional Gaming areas to ensure that we can get you all playing as soon as possible. Details will be published soon. Please contact us via the website contact page www.battleairsoft.co.uk/contact-us or email us on Info@battleairsoft.co.uk with any preference you have for a new game date.

As a show of appreciation, all players that transfer will receive a gift voucher to spend on gaming or in the shop.  You are also entitled to a full refund if you so wish.

 

All the team at Battle Stations are absolutely gutted that we will not be able to welcome you all back this weekend, However, your safety and the safety of our Team has to be our number one priority.

If anyone has any further questions please feel free to contact us via the website contact page www.battleairsoft.co.uk/contact-us or email us at Info@battleairsoft.co.uk

 

Simple Explanation of the new Government Guidelines published on the 26th of March 2021.

The plan was to open Airsoft and our other activities on the 29th of March. This was following the guidance of outdoor sport. This guidance is for "Recournized sports".

However, the new Government guidelines published on the 29th of March clearly states that Airsoft is NOT a Recournized sport and should therefore follow the advice for the "Visitor Economy" ie "Outdoor Leisure".

 

The guidelines for opening "Outdoor leisure" state that we are not to open our doors before the 12th of April. So that's where we are.

Already there have been some very creative arguments and workarounds, loopholes to try and get around these guidelines, but the long and short of it is that the Government does not recognize Airsoft as an "Organized Sport" because amounts other things, it does not have a Governing body. Therefore we are classed as Outdoor leisure and will have to follow the "Visitor Economy" guidelines - See you from the 12th :(
