Putting together a complete list of paintball fields: need your help
As the title says, I'm putting together an exhaustive list of paintball fields that WE play at. Please post where you've played, and rate the field 1 - 5, is it field paint only? Is it BYOP, or does it have BYOP days? Do they hold tournaments. Speedball mostly, Rec ball mostly, or a little of both?

Copy and paste, and fill in please:

Field Name:
BYOP: (Yes, No, Special Days Only)
Play Style: (Woodsball, Speedball, Both)
Local Tournaments: (Yes, No)
Rating: (1,2,3,4,5) Stars


This is for a couple of projects I'm in the middle of, and will put together this list so we can all use this and enjoy, and when we're traveling... We'll know where to go!

Thanks big time folks, this will be a huge help!
The projects will become known for those who don't know as of yet.

Add the field's website to the list of things to post too. Good idea. :)

Field Name: Splatmandu Paintball Club
Location: Three Rivers, MI
Play Style: Woodsball, Speedball
Local Tournaments: No
Rating: 4 Stars

Special features are a $2 annual membership fee (that's right, only $2 to play for the entire year) and they host monthly mini scenarios that are typically one hour of continuous play in a "big game" format. This is primarily a bring your own supplies facility, but paint and gas fills have been available the last couple of years. See the website for details.

Edit: Wow, someone beat me to posting this. I think my post is better though, so I'm leaving it up. :P

Field Name: Skirmish USA
Location: Jim Thorpe PA
Play Style: Mostly woods with structure fields(including 2 castles and a town type field), 2 hyper pipe fields and a few other speedball fields. I believe they have a set of inflatable bunkers they bring out during tournaments.
Local Tournaments: Yes
Big Games: Yes, annual scenario games
Rating: 4.5 Stars

Positive: 700+ acres and 50 or so fields, this place is huge with a bunch of different fields. Free Tippmann 98 rentals, many with n2 tanks. Free gun techs, you just pay for parts needed and some small ones they give you on the house. Free air/n2 on normal play days(air pass required during scenarios). Decent pro shop at fields along with hot food. Basic wooden lockers available to store extra gear, bring your own lock or buy one of theirs. Covered pick nick tables available and fires when it starts to get cold. Most facilities. Staff is friendly and works with you to fix issues that may arise. They do offer pump rentals if you reserve them in advance and are very specific about getting the Trracer pumps.

Negative: This place is huge, you could spend a lot of time walking from field to field especially on a busy day. On busy days you can spend a while waiting for the next field. There are certain areas with lots of mud including paths to and from main area, but if you expect to stay clean playing paintball your nuts. Paint isn't cheap and strict No-BYOP policy. The rental Trracers are buried most of the year only to see light a few times when pump only groups reserve them and even then the office staff may tell you they don't have them at all(lies!).

Wild: I got beat too, but mines better :P

One of the only year-round outside play fields in Massachusetts. Every Weekend! Also, some weekday play during summer months. Courteous, attentive staff. Strict adherence to rules and regs. Regular large/organized events such as pump days and scenarios. Good proshop, and competetively priced. Refs also take abundant photos for players to view on the website the following week. A nice touch!

Field Name: Painted Forest Action Games
Location: Lynchburg, Va
BYOP: (Yes, No, Special Days Only) Yes, although if you buy a 1/2 case from them field fee and air fee are waived. VERY worth it!
Play Style: (Woodsball, Speedball, Both) Woodsball mostly with some speedball.
Local Tournaments: (Yes, No) No
Rating: (1,2,3,4,5) Stars **** 4 stars out of 5

PFAG has been in operation since something like 1989. The owner is safety oriented, and I have seen people sent home for safety violations. The gameplay is good, old fashioned, old school, honor counts, paintball. There are generally 10 vs 10 for walk-on play, and sometimes when the private groups join in, we have 20+ per team. The facility itself is a bit run down (outhouse that only the VERY brave would use) but it puts me in mind of all of the places that I played in the 80's and early 90's.

I drive an hour and a half to play there when I have 2 places to play within half an hour's drive. That should say a lot.

Field Name: Splatbrothers Paintball
Location: Hopewell, VA (just outside of Richmond)
BYOP: (Yes, No, Special Days Only) FPO - Field paint only
Play Style: (Woodsball, Speedball, Both) Both. Much bigger emphasis on woodsball though. Also offers Airsoft BTW.
Local Tournaments: (Yes, No) Yes, both speedball and scenario game
Rating: (1,2,3,4,5) Stars ***** 5 stars out of 5

This may be my favorite field ever. Great staff, FANTASTIC play areas... (The Towers of Power field has to be seen to be believed). The level of honor and sportsmanship is very high. I have never had a complaint at all about this field.
