Sunday, 25th March 2018
Discover what it takes to be a military sniper during this full-day, veteran-led experience, in Norfolk.
This action-packed, full-day experience, in Norfolk, will immerse you in the high-stakes world of military snipers. Join veteran instructors for a day’s theory and practical exercises – and learn what it takes to be an elite marksman.
The experience takes place at the UK’s only sniper activity centre, in Thetford, Norfolk. On arrival, you’ll be greeted by the lead instructor, who’ll begin by briefing the group. After a PowerPoint presentation outlining sniper history and training methods, you’ll head outside for the first practical exercises. Throughout the day, these will cover rifle range practice, firing positions, methods of movement, stalking, camouflage and concealment. Furthermore, to ensure you look and feel the part, you’ll be issued with a replica L96 BB sniper rife (with a range of 100m), safety equipment, genuine military clothing and a custom-made ghillie suit. The course is based on authentic combat training methods and will end with competitive sniper vs. sniper games.
Each participant will receive a certificate of attendance before they leave too.
The Full Day Sniper Experience, in Norfolk, is a unique stag do or birthday party idea, and an Experience Days voucher makes a cracking gift for military enthusiasts, gamers or film-lovers.

18 miles from Thickthorn Roundabout. Head towards Thetford from the Thickthorn roundabout we are approx 4-5 miles from the Attleborough round about.
3.5 miles from Watton Roundabout on the A11 towards Norwich.
The site is in the Heart of Forestry Commission Land so no accurate postcode available. However we are very easy to find as we are just off the A11 dual carriageway 3 mile out of Thetford heading towards Norwich (Look for Road Signs saying Combat Paintball). We are accessible from both directions on the dual carriageway due to having an underpass at the entrance to the site.
Please follow this postcode NR16 2TH then look out for combat Paintball signs along the A11 dual carriageway and follow them.
