Stag weekend activity in the Peak District - It's a Knockout

It's a Knockout

For the ultimate in stag weekend fun, the It's a Knockout package is a must. If you don't remember Stuart Hall's BBC TV series from the 70s and 80s, Google it and you will see why this is a popular activity for both stags and hens. This activity involves going head-to-head against the girls for an afternoon of assault course, inflatables and foam fun, all the while dressed up in hilariously silly costumes. A bottle of champers is on ice for the winner, so ensure your stags are on top form to prevent their pride taking a battering by the ladies.

Stag weekend activity in the Peak District - Paintballing


Paintball has become an increasingly popular game where players compete in teams to eliminate their opponents by tagging them with paintballs fired from a paintball gun. This game is usually played in woodland where participants can use the trees to hide behind and creep up on their opponents. Paintballing centres provide all equipment for participants including paintball guns, paintballs and clothing; which usually consists of a helmet, goggles and padded clothing.

Stag weekend activity in the Peak District - clay pigeon shooting

Clay Pigeon Shooting

Clay pigeon shooting has been a popular past time for many years and is the art of using a shotgun to shoot at special flying targets, known as clay pigeons. Some people shoot clay targets to practice their skills for hunting real birds; whereas many others simply practice for the sport itself and it can be done individually or as a social activity, making it an ideal activity for a stag party. Clay targets are discs made of clay that are ejected from a thrower. The thrower will project the clay disc high into the air, or straight out away from the shooter, simulating how a real live bird would fly.
