Wickham events are day games organised by the UKLTA. The events are designed
to let everyone have a bit of fun and also serve as both an ideal introduction to LRP
and Lazer-tag equipment. The format varies from month to month, but the morning
usually starts around 10:00 and is normally spent skirmishing and, after lunch, the
afternoon features a role-playing scenario run by volunteers.
The venue is the Combat South air soft site at Wickham, near Southampton. It is a
large woodland site which features a village, farm, two storey fort, bunkers and
even a motor boat. The site also has toilets and an ample car park.
To take part you’ll need sturdy boots and outdoor clothing (military kit is always
popular), a packed lunch and drink . If you have no tagging kit (gun and sensor)
loan kit can be arranged in advance through ‘Firefight’.
From Junction 10 (M27), follow the A32 to Wickham.
Just before Wickham, take the A34 to Botley, follow for 300 yards.
Just before the railway bridge, turn left in to Mayles Lane, continue for ¾ mile.
The turning for Combat South is on the left.
For your SatNav: PO17 5ND and carry on a further 300 metres as per above
The nearest railway station is Botley. Lifts to the site are available by prior
arrangement on the ‘Firefight’ web forum.
