The accuracy of this review is disputed. Please see discussion below.
Period of Field Use:
October 29th, 2006
Other Fields in the Area:
Hot Shots-indoor slip-fest
The Paintball Store- Great indoor play- No outdoor.
Good - The swamp is the best facility in south east VA. Speedball, scenario, & woods. Play is regulated by young refs who know the game. Prices are about the same as everywhere. Rules are fair and safety is job one. Alot of players show up to play. All levels of skill, not just "speedballer" pro's. Owners even get in on the fun.
Bad - Field advertises speedball, scenario, and woods, but you don't have a choice. Refs pick games and are biased against woods play. Also, way too much time in between rounds. I stayed 5 hours only played 5 games. Other facilities plays 12 games in 5 hours.
Dispute: I really don't believe that they are biased about woods or speed ball. The fact that they were biased about the woods on that day is because they have been having bad mosquito problems.which have been resolved due to the colder weather. And these fellas are the fastest on the penninsulas when turning around games.

they are no way biased. its just based on the people there. if they have mostly new comers there gonna use the concept field becuase its easier to watch everyone. many times me and my cousin are they only true speedball-only players so we go there from 9 in the morning to 6-7 at night and we play about 15 games of speedball and about 6 games of concept. i never wanted to venture into the woods becuase its mosquito heaven back there. all im trying to say is you have to open your mouth and tell them what you want to do. but me n my cousin r close to the refs so that might have somethin to do with it
