Review: I love Madd Dogz, and even though I live 20 miles away, I like to call it my home field. I'll break everything into sections so it's organized.

Area: The area around this field is Waxahachie, TX. Up the road from the field are fast food restauraunts, sit-down restaurants, Wal-Mart, all sorts of stuff, so if anything goes wrong, or you get hungry, you're really close to civilization. The area around here has black earth, so when it rains, the mud is really thick, which I don't really care for, because my shoes get heavy and I can't get a grip.

Facility: Their facilities are pretty nice. The bathrooms are pretty clean, have showers (don't know if they work or not), the proshop is nice and heated with a BIG TV and paintball DVDs playing on busy days.

Pro-Shop: The pro-shop isn't much to write home about. They sell about one gun at a time (but I think it has something to do with them being robbed). They sell Halos, many parts for Halos, a mask or two, some squeegees, many pods, some Evil, Draxxus, and Empire Clothes, packs, and generic small stuff.

Fields: This is a predominantly speedball course, and their 4 speedball fields are made with different types of bunkers for somewhat different styles of play. They have a plastic field, a barrel/hyperball field, a tire field, and, my absolute favorite, Airball. All of these fields are well set up and require different skills to play. Their other two fields are dedicated to the rec-ball players: HEAVY wooded woodsball, and a big urban field, complete with a fort, cars, a plane, and all sorts of stuff. Both are very interesting to play. All in all Madd Dogz caters to all different styles of play. One of the things I like most about this field is that there is one giant staging area with tables, an awning and some seats, centered around the main fields. You have to walk a little ways for woods and urban, but the speedball is just right there. I also think they'll be getting an indoor airball field/skatepark sometime in the future. If you're curious about this, I can get you more information, just PM me.

Referees: The refs out there are awesome and we know each other by name (almost, meaning they recognize me, and a couple of 'em know my name). They know a lot about the game, are very fair, and will help you out if you EVER have a problem with equipment, your playing skills, anything.

Prices: The prices are good out here. They charge less than $50 a case, and to get in it's about $15. If you are a team that consists of about 6 or more people and you play 2 times a month for a while, you may be able to get a special rate.

Tourneys: Madd Dogz holds very good, well organized tournaments for beginners and amateurs. Prizes usually include Ions, Halos, Tanks, clothes, stuff like that. They have extra refs for these and they'll have good paint delivered a day or two before the event. Last one I played, they had an NPPL ref come out and act as head ref.

All in all, this is my favorite field. My team practices here, I play tourneys here, and I just go out and play rec-ball here. The owner, Ron Wegsheid, is an extremely nice person and loves to make sure everyone is having fun. This is where I will continue to play paintball as long as I live in the area. I normally say that I don't think anything deserves a 10, but in this case, I'll make an exception.
