Boston Paintball indoor
I've played at all the western MA fields and by far Xtreme is the best. The owner made this fiueld because the other two local major fields are lacking(Camelot is pure speedball, Airsports does both but their speedball is severly lacking). Their woods filed is run by Black Diamond a local scenario team and since they opened they've been expanding the field and building new structures to play on. The woods field is by far the best i've ever played on it has a lil something for everyone, the grass is insanely tall, at parts easily waist high, sometimes higher. They also have a less thick area is very good for those guys who like to sling paint (me). They have several small forts and I've heard they're working on a big fort for this year.
The speedball field as of now doesn;'t have netting. But they have the poles and netting, they're just waiting for spring to be able to bring them down the road and put them in. They have two fields currently; a brand new 2K6 X-ball field with the fingers, and a 7-man field. The speeball fields have been laser leveled so the whole field is nice and flat. Last year the grass grew in somewhat and whilke it wasn;t great it was good enough. I'd expect to see a great lush green field by this summer.
As for service and stuff, the field has a compressor that fills up to 4500 very quickly and I've never not gotten a fill that was below 4000. The paint is the cheapest aroudn no store or field sells it this cheap ans it's really good too. It's usually some brand of Draxxus, though for some of the summer they were using GAP which shoot amazing through my DM6. They usually do hamburgers or hot dogs for lunch, and they always have soda, gatorade, or water there.
Finally the atmosphere. I have to say that the guys here are great. Most of the veteran players are always willing to lend a hand with help for gear or anything and the competition is awesome. The speedball is a little bit on the slow side but they only really had a good two or three months or so of time for speedball before they had to put it away for the winter. The woodsball is great, they have two teams there that show up regularly; Ricochet Park and Black Diamond. both f these teams are veyr good and provide excellent competition. Of course if you jsut want fun games the refs always split them up so it's still fair. The reffing crew is led by Chris a NPPl certified ref. Most ofthe rest are usually volunteer's from Xtreme's speedball team. but they also have a nu,ber of ypouunger kids that they're trainging to be refs which bodes very well for this field.
All in al I'd say wether your a recballer, or a serious player, Xtreme is one of the best fields in Western MA.
