Review: I was very excited to visit this field, i have been looking for a place to play since Atomix shut down and ran across this. Me and my buddy packed up and headed to the field, what follows are things that i noticed and experianced at the field.

-Hard to find: it is in the very back corner of the mall

-Dirty: The carpeting in the staging area was stained yellow from the paint, i spilled my water and a big gray spot appeared ( i would never have guessed the carpet was gray). The turf of the field was so covered in paint that when you tried to run, it was like running on ice, it was best to start walking, then jog, then run to get where u were going (sliding was very easy and u went far). When playing a game on their "Barrel Field" i only was hit with one ball, but the bunkers were so dirty that when i left the field it looked like i had been swimming in paint, litteraly. The bathroom stalls didn't have doors (mens or womens, my friends girl friend came so she checked out the ladies facility for us), one of the urinals had green liquid sitting in it, and everything in the bathroom was wet.

-Customer service: The guy and lady behind the main desk where you buy the paint were very nice and helpfull. The ref's were another story, the main ref was very cocky and wasn't very helpfull when asking questions, most of the timed he ignored us and others. The rest of the ref's didn't know how to help us with simple questions like, when is the next game?, or can we go walk to field?, they all told us to go talk to the main ref.

-Paint: The basic paint is Worr Addiction, which they sell for 37 a case, every other ball was dimpled and was kept in a cold place so the ball was cold to the touch, close to being frozen. I had such a problem with the basic paint breaking in my gun that i took it back and paid the 12$ for an upgrade to the Blaze, next best. This guesture was VERY kind and i appreciate it, again the people behind the desk were very friendly and courtious. The Blaze that i recieved as an upgrade shot very well, not as dimpled but there were still some, it was still cold though so i got alot of bounces.

This wasn't my favorte field to play at, i would only go here again if i was in a bind and really NEEDED to play. Other than that i wouldn't waste my money, there wasn't too many tournament players and i was only shot out once in the 6 games that i played.

I do not recommend this field, go an find somewhere else to play.

I agree. I wished I had brought a change of clothes to drive home in. I wonder if it would be as easy to slide on the turf if it were not so saturated with paint.

you totally need to take a change of clothes but when it is clean you dont slide at all

From what i understand fomr the owner he is gonna be working on the bath rooms at a later date, my guess would be due to cost, dont wanna put to much in to fast. As for the paint coverd feild you should of played at this place when it was owned by futreball, kneel slideing into there 20ft snake and PASSING it up by about 4 feet cause the paint cake was so bad, this place is a HUGE improvement and depending on the night you go it can be really clean.
