I have been waiting to write this review until I spent more time at the field. I have now attended 3 BYOP Sundays in the past 6 weeks and feel confident that my review reflects not just a single experience at Team Combat Paintball, but a compilation of my experiences. Never again will I go to this field.
Unfortunately I cannot recommend this field for anybody, mostly because of continued safety issues at the field.
In my three days at the field I have witnessed two separate altercations between players on the field where at least one player removed his mask, threw it to the ground and acted as though he was going to fight the other player. In all of these cases the referees took a long time (at least 30 seconds) at get the player to put his mask on. I could not believe that a person would do this in the middle of a live game.
The referees are mostly local high school students (I asked them how old they are and where they go to school) and frequently go onto the field with their masks up, putting them down at the last second. Other players see this and follow their irresponsible example.
Barrel condoms/plugs are not enforced at all, even in the staging area. Players frequently test fire their guns in the staging area. As a result I usually go to the parking lot area between games. Once I leave the parking lot I put my mask down, even when getting my gun filled as I have seen many players accidentally fire their guns in the filling and staging areas (usually without barrel condoms/plugs).
I wonâ€™t go into other issues such as frequently rude staff consistently unbalanced teams (refs take people with good guns and blatantly stack the teams, putting their friends on the better equipped team) because that is really irrelevant in light of the larger issues at this field.
I would encourage management to find themselves some more mature referees that will enforce our sports widely accepted standards of safety.
If you go to this field (it is the most convenient field for the lower bucks county area), just be mindful of these safety issues and take precautions to protect yourself.
