Human Table Football

Human Table Football Hire and RentalsFootball, or Soccer(!), grew on the UK population in 2012 when Team GB took to the field. With the Women’s team proving to be more successful (and growing ever since) than the men’s, the nation really got involved in the action.

Now you can bring the football to your event with Altitude Events’ Human Table Football.

This human size version of the classic foosball game provides hours of fun for adults and children alike (8yrs and above). The nature of the game makes it a level playing field meaning it proves popular to those interested in football or not. Get you team of 5 to the final and grab that Gold!

Laser Clays

Laser Clay Pigeon Shooting Hire and RentalsAs with Archery, Shooting is one that that gets the pulses racing! Tense on the firing line, PULL! HIT! TWICE!

Laser Clay Pigeon Shooting is an electronic version of the popular country sport of Clay Pigeon Shooting and its one of our favourite activities. Laser Clay Pigeon Shooting uses real (but de-activated) shotguns and players shoot laser beams at plastic discs fired from a trap. The discs are then collected and re-used so no waste is left on the ground.

Using the latest system and scoreboards for increased accuracy, here at Altitude Events we can take you through four different game modes depending on time available. With 5 shooters at a time, we guarantee fun and excitement as you track the clay before pulling the trigger! Once started you won’t want to stop!
