Post List of Nerf Groups/Organisations  Reply with quote
Below is a list of the various Nerf groups holding regular games around the UK. I have included links where I can but in order to avoid this becoming a wall of links, I have only included the 'official' web pages of the various groups.

University Societies

These groups are often open to students only but some run games that anyone can join, often for a small fee. It is well worth contacting these groups if you want extra players for a war you are organising.

Bath - HvZ, PvP, LARP - Link
Bristol - HvZ indoor and PvP - Link
Aberystwyth - Regular games open to non students and students.
Durham - Assassins guild.
Lincoln - Nerf soc.
Stafford - Assasins guild.
RHUL - Campus HvZ.
Exeter - Nerf soc.
Leeds - Assassins.
Cambridge - Assassins.
Birmingham - Campus HvZ.
Birmingham - Assassins.
Derby - Campus HvZ.
Plymouth - Nerf soc.
Portsmouth - Nerf soc. - link
Nottingham - Nerf soc. - More info. Facebook Page

Nerf LARP

Live Action Role Play is an awesome hobby in itself but there are some post apocalyptic/Sci-Fi groups that use Nerf blasters. Most LARP groups charge for their games but you usually get a lot of awesome nerfing for your money. If you get a chance to try it, you should.

Dark Sun - E. Sussex - Post apoc. - Link
Green Cloaks - E. Sussex - Sci-Fi - Link
HIVE - Leicester - Post apoc. - Link
Wasteland UK - Coventry - Post apoc. - Link

Nerf Groups

Nerf groups that run regular, public games.

Nerf Wars: Leicester - Link
Nerf Wars: Bedfordshire - Link
Foam Dart Thunder - Edinburgh - Link
Foam Warfare Alliance- South Devon- Link
Nerf Wars South West- Bristol/West Country-   LINK
Solent Nerf Club- South coast/Portsmouth area Link
Grim Up Nerf - To Leeds, Bradford and beyond!- Link

Nerf Arenas

Owing to the popularity of Nerf, arenas are popping up all over the place. These aren't really suitable for our purposes but it might be handy to list them here anyway.

Quest Merry Hill - Dudley - Link
Gulliver's Nerf Zone - Milton Keynes - Link


I will try to keep this list updated as new groups pop up. If anyone has any more info on these groups or any others, post below and I will update the OP.

BUZAN has a website.

Thanks for doing this. Inlcuding links to Facebook might be a good idea, too. Smile

Fair enough. I'll add more links as we go. Any help with facebook links and shizzle would be helpful. Just paste the full link into your post and I'll copy it to the OP.

why don't you just have a thread where people can post their own groups and info?

That's a fair argument but I'd argue it's better to have a single post at the top of a stickied thread so people can submit their info and the person running the thread can insert it into the top post where it can be easily read. That way, you don't have to dig all the way through a thread to find the information you want, it's at the top. Additionally, the information can be presented in a set format which makes things easier to read. Smile

This is meant as a one stop post of anyone looking for info really - obviously individual events can have their own post .

It varies. Down here at Falmouth we're on campus grounds and all students - however non-student memberships do exist via the SU. But we are far tighter policed than your average park game would be. Insurance and bits and pieces regarding dart sweeps to keep the area clean come into it. Along with the obvious rules regarding paint jobs - they are especially tight on whats permissible because the last thing you want to cause is a full campus lockdown and lose the society .

They are mostly for students or graduates of those institutions. I am pretty sure I am the only regular game for under 18's in the UK.

Unless you go to a DT arena, yes, yes you are. I don't envy that, 18+ is great (particularly when the SU bar is open) and you don't get moaning parents when you shoot their little darling for back chatting... Very Happy

18+ is the best- drunk HvZ players are especially amusing Razz - when is the SU bar ever closed lol

Great idea!

I'll add that with the next edit. I'll also clean up the topic a bit. By all means keep up the discussion and post new links for me but in the interest of good housekeeping I will delete old posts once discussion has died down.

I guess I'm the RHUL rep then, but I'm only a player. Campus and SU policy is Students/Alumni only unfortunately!

If anybody can get me in touch with Nerf wars Leicester or Derby uni HvZ I would be really grateful, and Hive Leicester would also be great, as the their site has no contact details.
