The end of The Mall, Reading :(

Recommended Posts

I know a lot of us are mall regulars.

From the Zed Airsoft page:

 

IMPORTANT ANNOUNCEMENT!

The End Is Extremely Fucking Nigh!

 

As you may know, the development of Station Hill & the surrounding area in Reading has been slowly moving forward for many years now & closure of “The Mall” has always been a whisper in the winds – for nine & a half years in fact.

This could potentially mean the final lap for us at The Mall.

With that in mind & with our customers in mind we’re giving this potential notice well in advance so that should you wish to do so, now is certainly the time to book in & enjoy what has been for many, nearly a decade of CQB airsoft in the most diverse area the UK has to offer.

Zed Events our sister company has closed taking bookings as they sell tickets months in advance, so that has no bearing on the airsoft side. In fact, as a result we are going to be running extra events as frequently as we possibly can to ensure everybody gets a different & exceptional experience at our epic venue.

But let’s not get all sentimental yet, let’s just get some serious (& daft) CQB airsoft going & see us out with the bang it always has been!

To book, fire us an email: [email protected]

Thank you all very, very much for what has been a mind blowing nine & a half years so far!

(…& of course we’re already preparing for a transition to a new, unbelievable venue so watch this space!)

Love & respect,

Lee, Luke & the team

Popped my airsoft cherry at the Mall and that's where me and L3wisD went on our first date! 🤧

 

Excited to see what "new, unbelievable venue" pans out as. I will definately get in some games before she goes.

Ahh crap. I joked about this when we visited for the first time last month. 

 

Will have to see if we can pop down again soon.

The gaol is still one of my favorites. I think I went to the Mall too much and ended up not enjoying it as much. The gaol iv'e been too twice and loved it both times

Same for me, last couple of games I played there I came away disappointed, but to be fair I've not been back for more than 5 years so maybe I should hit it one more time, plus my son has never been to anything remotely cqb so he'd prob love it.

Shame, just been the once, as been trying outdoors in the Summer, but was planning to go again once the weather got wet and windy in the Autumn/Winter.

 

Any Sunday bar 19/08 and 16/09 and I can probably make it, though 12/08 might be a challenge as am at SkirmishWycomb on 11/08 for forum meet-up

 

And another meet afoot at Gunman on 16/09.

 

Cheers

Didn't know anything about things at that time but everybody knew the site was going to get developed at some point.

When I am there this Sunday I will go through the available dates and see what is free.  I will post up the dates and we can pick the one most suitable for people.

Will want at least 20 people to make it work and there can be no messing about as dates will disappear very quickly. Once you pick a date all money to be paid straightaway and there will be no refunds if you do not make it.
