What is UKARA?
UKARA stands for United Kingdom Airsoft Retailers Association.
"UKARA was formed as a response to the drafting of the Violent Crime Reduction Bill in 2006 which later became an Act of Parliament.
UKARA is an association of UK Airsoft Retailers brought together to protect themselves from prosecution and enable a safe method of selling Realistic Imitation Firearms ( RiF's ) to the largest of the permitted purchaser groups in the UK, Airsoft Players."
You do not need to be UKARA registered to play airsoft at a site, however you will need to be registered to purchase your own realistic weapons from a retailer. If you are not registered and you purchase from a retailer, the weapon will be sprayed bright two-tone so it is clear it is not a real weapon.
Games run by Ultimate Airsoft London ("Ultimate Recreation London Ltd") count towards your UKARA registration.
Please note you must be 18 years old to apply
Bookings & Payment: · All bookings must be fully paid for in advance. · Confirmed bookings may prevent other customers from booking their desired time and date and are therefore subject to our cancellation policy – Once confirmed and paid for, all bookings at Ultimate Airsoft are non-refundable and non-transferable.

Provisional bookings do not commit you to nor guarantee the booking and where possible we will try to give provisional bookings first refusal over a new booking. · Once a provisional booking is made it is then the responsibility of the customer to contact the bookings office within the given time to make payment and confirm their booking.

We provide kit and BBs with some of our packages but extras can be bought before entering the arena or on a tab system during the game, with the balance to be paid at the end of the day. Once purchased, extras are non-refundable and non-transferable. · If a member of your group fails to attend the event they will lose their payment and are no longer entitled to any pre-purchased BBs. However, we will offer the extra BBs to the rest of the group to use on the day. · We require all players to arrive 30 minute prior to the start time on the date of play for registration and briefing. Any players who miss their briefing may be unable to play. If your group is late we are unable to over-run sessions but will try to get your group started as quickly as possible to avoid the loss of any more game time. · Your marshal will brief your group before your game starts. Please ensure you fully understand the risks involved in taking part in the activity and follow all instructions issued by the marshal at all times to ensure the safety of the group and staff. · Ultimate Airsoft reserves the right to refuse or remove any players at any stage of the booking at the discretion of the manager.
