Review: let me start off with DO NOT GO HERE, DO NOT GO HERE!!!! the pro shop is ok, sorta, they're just out of stock with everything you need. But this place is dirty, trash everywhere! and lumber scatter about the staging area. They claim theyre "building it up" i went 3 weekends in a row and have seen no progress.

I first tried this place about three weekends ago with another buddy on a sunday, there was nobody else to play with, so we tried the fields out. They have one woodsball course that's pretty nice, but none of the staff walks through and cleans up, there trash all kinds in there, and the bunkers are facing every which way, so its hard to set up a front. Its the best field there.
They also have 2 speed ball courts and room for one more. but they keep one inflated and don't even think about asking the staff to inflate the other one, they'll complain, whine, and try to convince you to play on the other one that has half a net. and when they decide to set up the other court, it takes them FOREVER!!!!
They have one recball field in front of "the alamo" which you cant play in or around, its not really a recball field, its like 15 berms facing each other and a cut out of a castle that is supported by one 2X4 and looks like its about to fall over, not safe to say the least.

Now let me tell you about the rentals they have, they rent out 98 customs with a tank, mask, and barrel condom, not bad for 20 dollars. But these weapons are only hosed off after returning from use, they don't take them apart and inspect them for broken or damaged components or Orings, and these things have seen better days! MUCH BETTER!!!
The refs on this field are all pretty much under the age of 16, half of them don't know how to fill up a co2 tank, and are reluctant if you ask them to ref a game or have ask to fill up a tank, and after every game they ask, "when are you guys leaving?" The staff at the counter are pretty clueless about their rental policies, and most questions are answered with an "uuhhh", "im not sure, lemme ask the owner" or an "ask that guy."
Now the owner, he is a crusty bitter old man who cops and attitude with EVERYBODY! well, everybody that was there today. Today, this place lost a drivers license (which are required for rentals) and it belong to a member in my group. The owner refused any reimbursement what so ever at the time and asked for receipts when my buddy gets a new Drivers licence so he can pay him back. So i asked him "what about the lost wages in traveling to work?" The old man SNAPPED AT ME and proceeded to shake his finger at me, began insulting me and demanded that i leave. He claimed that "this is a place of bussiness" and i replied with "if it was, this man would have his drivers license back, he completed his part of the bargin..." before i could finish, the man demanded i leave. So now my buddy is S O L and has no ride. What a great place....

I always go to PowerPlay in Waco. They have great prices and even better staff.
