I'll start by saying that any review prior to 2006 should be ignored. Those reviews do not apply anymore because of all the changes over the winter.
Paintball Authority has a big woods field, a mid-size air ball field, a regulation size X-ball field, a large town, and a very large hyberball field. The hyberball field used to be two seperate fields, but over the winter, the netting was taken down and one large field was made. It can be played as one large field or you can just play either half of it. It's three fields in one. There is also another X-ball field that is used by AFTERMATH. They are a Division 2 X-ball team and they practice there every Sunday.
One of the biggest changes was the field and paint fees. It's only $5 to play and includes all day air. The paint prices have been dramatically reduced. I mean all paint not just house paint. Over the last few months, there has been a dramatic increase in the number of players coming out and now there are more teams that are there every Sunday.
The staff that work at the store and field are very knowledgeable and have a lot of experience. I know that some people expect to have a referee for every field for every game. There are just too many people and too many games going on for that to happen. The more experinced players help out by running their own games and the field staff can concentrate on helping the newer and/or younger players.
Paintball Authority has several specials throughout the year. They have free play on Wednesday evenings, they have an "All You can Shoot Day" coming up at the end of May. They have Friday evening play and overnight camping a couple times a year. In December, they have a day where you bring a gift as your entry fee and all gifts are given to a local charity. They are always looking for new ways to promote paintball.
The players at the field are really good people. Team members and experienced players do everything they can to help out newer players. Several teams even let walk-ons run drills with them. AFTERMATH lets people run drills with them and even let's others play with them when they're playing games. Those guys have a lot of experience and are willing to help anyone out.
My overall evaluation is that Paintball Authority is a great place to come and play paintball. Whether you are new to the sport, just someone that plays every now and then, or you're on a team and play there every weekend, they have a field and a game for you.
