My 9 year old and his friends had a great time playing splatball for his birthday. It was the perfect thing for this age group I found the communication from booking through to the day to be excellent and the staff on the day were all super friendly. We brought food for lunch and cake after the splatball and were lucky to get a table to have our little party. It was a very busy day and quite a few people hanging around waiting for tables so worth keeping in mind that table for party lunch may not be available. It would have totally thrown my plans if I had not managed to get a table. All up I was very happy with everything.

Went here for my sons 9th bday with 5 of his mates. Kids had a ball. Ordered pizzas from Jaimies pizza and brought some drinks and a cake with us. Staff were very friendly and professional and games were well organised. Would definately come here again with the kids or with some mates of my own. Definately recommend!

Organising a party for a group of 8 year old boys can be a challenge, but our group loved Oakleigh Splatball. Initially our group of youngsters was nervous as they thought they would be playing against grownups - quite the opposite. Our boys were playing in a well supervised space with a similar age group. They all left the area areas completely pumped and excited and literally had a blast. Grabbing a party table and being able to bring in our own food also made things very simple, and staff were highly helpful and very safety conscious. Thanks a ton guys!

I would highly recommend a splatball birthday party. We celebrated my 2 sons birthdays who were turning 9 and 8, they absolutely loved it as did their friends. The party was easy and the staff were attentive and professional.

We hosted birthday party for our son who turned 9 and his group of friends. All of them had a great time, it was very safe as they adhered to the rules of the games and as defined by the game manager who was also present in the arena all through. We will soon be back to play as family and with our family friends to have more fun.

Great venue and service with high quality instructors. My son had his 9th birthday party and he and his friends loved it. As a former Digger, I appreciated the staffs professionalism and focus on range safety while still allowing the kids to maximise their fun and enjoyment.

We had a great time at my sons 9th birthday party, it was great adults could go and play against the kids. All the kids had a great time.

My 9 year old son had been begging to have his next party at a paintball place, so when we came across World series Splatball on the internet we decided to have his 9th Birthday there. He and his friends had an absolute blast, the instructor was very informative and kept the boys in control. They spent 1.5hrs covering each other in paint and couldnt stop talking about it all the way home. Well be back for sure. Highly recommend.Thanks David and team at Oakleigh.

We had my sons 9th Birthday Party at Oakleigh Splatball on the weekend. The kids had such a fantastic time and said the paintballs didnt hurt them they they were worried they might. Tables are lined up and ready for you to put your party gear on while someone takes your kids through the activities. Well worth it if your looking for a super fun party venue where you really dont have to do much but bring the kids and the cake!

My 9 year old son and his friends had an absolute ball. They loved it. The staff were very friendly and professional. Thank you Oakleigh Splatball.

This was "the best party EEVVEERRR", they all said. And it really was. So easy to organise (booked on-line and got immediate confirmation). Really accommodating on the day with extra numbers and late comers. With choice of BYO party food, and/or option to order pizza (which turned up nice and hot and on time) and extra food from the cafe made catering really easy. Highly recommend it.(Party for 19 boys aged 9.)

My 9yr old son Diesel had an absolute ball with all his friends playing Jnr splatball for his birthday party. Hes still taking about it! Great experience for them all and an added bonus that the staff were friendly and knowledgable.

My 9yr old son and 5 of his friends had an absolute blast. As a parent I truly appreciated the strict approach by the trainers/referees to the rules of playing for safety reason. Also loved the option of parents going in for a look + being able to have pizza delivered to the venue. Were SOLD!

My son had his 9th Birthday Party here on the weekend. Oh my goodness, every single child had an absolute ball. My son had 2 girls at his party too, and they loved it also. Everyone at school today, told me it was the best Birthday Party they had ever been to!!

My son had his 8 y old birthday there and from the moment I inquired I was very impressed. All questions were answered, and nothing was too much trouble. I will definitely recommend splattball to all

Highly Recommend!!! We took 9 children for my sons 10th birthday and all the other guests were 9 with one 8 year old. They were super safe and it was super fun. They all loved it and want to come back. We booked for 10 and one didnt show at the last minute, so I was really surprised and appreciative when we were not charged for him. Thank you, we will be back

Fantastic! Had my sons 9th Birthday here and they had a ball, I definitely recommend this! Out Referee/Host Libby was great with the kids. Customer service with planning and booking was really good... we had some back and forth and their service and flexibility was awesome.

What a fantastic easy party. "So much better than I even expected" were the birthday boys comments. Thanks to all the team for their professionalism and patience with our group of excited 8 year olds.
by Lucy reviewed on 2016-11-14
A successful birthday party for a group of 9 and 10 year olds. They all had so much fun and could really release all that energy that boys have at that age. Staff were great, booking was easy, and pizza recommendation excellent and cheap. Thanks for keeping these boys happy and out of my home.
by Jenny reviewed on 2016-08-16
This was such a seamless party to organise. The staff at the venue were confident and a pleasure to deal with. We had a party of 10 boys, ages 9 & 10. They all said it was the best party ever! So easy to bring your own food and we ordered pizzas from around the corner and they were delivered on time. Highly recommend!

After having had two splatball parties for 9 year olds, the parents decided that we should join in with the kids. So we organised 6 families to have an afternoon of splatball. There were 26 of us, ranging in ages from 9 to 47. It was the greatest afternoon. Im not sure who had more fun - the kids or the adults. Its a brilliant family friendly thing to do. There are not a lot of things that can entertain both adults and kids. Thanks so much. We are going to make it an annual event!

Great way to spend a 9 year old birthday party, The boys had a blast.

We hosted our sons 9th birthday party at Splatball with 12 children & the feedback was tremendous! The kids had a ball - our son was so happy that his friends had such a great time. Perfect afternoon for energetic kids! Thank-you

My son had his 9th birthday at Splatball and he could not have been happier. All the children had such a blast, the staff there where very professional and approachable. Thank you all for making my sons day one to remember. I recommend Oakley Splatball 100% and will be re-visiting again.

WOW, kids had a blast and probably the best bday party my son has had in his whole 9 years! Staff were friendly, organised & the instructor (the guy running around with the kids/induction on the game) was great with the kids and made the experience even better for the kids! Highly recommend this venue! We will be returning in the near future if my son has his way!
