Review: I gotta say it is nice to feel at home when I play and this is the place for that.

Safety is as per any field you go to : masks on out at the field and at the chrono (290), barrel bags or plugs everywhere else. Twenty foot surrender rule with the proviso that the player being surrendered can try and fight it out (almost always a loosing proposition). The more players out on the field, the more Refs you see, with some of the regulars volunteering if they see a hand is needed. The Refs play it fair and keep it safe.

The speed ball field has not been up since I have played there but it is being rebuilt soon. The woodsball field? Ummm WOW? There is a great mix of everything a woodsballer could want. Towers (two and three story), single story buildings, a helo and a tank (non-moving) to fight out of and more bunkers than you can use in a 6 or 7 hour day. Then you have the actual woods. Everything from thick brush to large areas of larger trees with plenty of open space around them. The field boundaries are clearly defined. The size of the field can easily take 250 players without it feeling crowded and for a recent scenerio it was more than doubled in size for the game to take 425 players on the field at once.

You will have to look pretty hard to find better prices. Walk on Sunday is $5 field fee, $5 all day air or .50/oz CO2. Field paint is $20/500 or you can bring your own, although I am unsure where I can find it cheaper than that around here. As a side note, they have recently banned Zap from the field due to complaints about the blue staining clothes. Rental packages are 98Cs on air for $10.

The staff? Jim, Howie and all their staff are as accommodating as you could hope to run across. The players at Mersey run the whole spectrum. From people who are playing for the first time, to folks that write for some of the paintball magazines and everything in between. Not sure what other fields are like, but it is nice when the guy you just shot out walks by and gives you a thumbs up for a good fight.

An edit here to mention the new speedball field. Through out the spring and summer a really first class regulation size XBall field on turf was installed at Mersey.
