We have two simple aims:

  • To provide new, exciting and ‘different’ activities
  • To help facilitate the most interactive and realistic training available

To achieve these aims, Diverse Coaching have created the UK’s first known electronic interactive paintball range called R.A.P.T.O.R which uses ‘magazine fed’ paintball markers to create a realistic, fun and competitive shooting activity without the dangers of using ‘live’ ammunition or the pain normally associated with paintball.

This is a concept which has, and continues to grow with two mobile ranges now available to hire anywhere in England and Wales as well as through the creation of our purpose built range and Multi-room Training Environment in Newport, South Wales. This facility acts as not only a venue for those wanting to experience this new type of paintballing, but also a location for professional training and a base for our operations.

We believe our Newport venue to be a modern and fresh facility and along with the modern training and meeting rooms, also offers our Multi-room Training Environment which is as far as we know the only one of its kind. This environment, has specially created rooms to make a variety of training realistic and better train participants for when the skills and techniques they are taught are required in the real world.

What modern venue would be complete with out something to eat and drink? We know people want time away from training, meetings or taking part in activities, and this is why we also have a Cafe onsite to help ensure the needs of everyone onsite are met.

We believe passionately in what we do, which is why we have added a little bit about some of our key people below.
