Battlefield Sports Scores Amongst the Best & Brightest

Local laser tag manufacturer, Battlefield Sports was recognized Friday night amongst the best and brightest of the Logan business community at the annual Business Distinction Awards.

Battlefield Sports won the Sports & Fitness Services Category for its innovations in getting the young and the young-at-heart active and engaged. Rather than a traditional sport, Battlefield Sports manufactures live gaming equipment so people can participate in a live action role play. Laser Skirmish is inspired from gaming elements of popular video games but players get outdoors and experience a real life scenario.

As well as manufacturing its laser tag equipment and exporting to more than 50 countries the Battlefield Sports team operate local Laser Skirmish fields in Mt Cotton, Mt Crosby, Samford and Tamborine. They also rent the laser tag equipment nationwide.
