Review: Well I haven't played at any other fields in this area... but I will have to compare it against other fields I have been to. Overall I would say the worst thing about this place is how slow they are. You can spend three hours here and MAYBE play 4 games. Don't go around noon, THIS PLACE TAKES A LUNCH DURING THE MIDDLE OF THE DAY! ALMOST 45 MINUTE BREAK FOR NO REASON OTHER THAN FOR REFS TO EAT! they had plenty of refs, they could have staggered their lunches... BESIDES, THEY ALREADY HAVE 20 MINUTES between games because they make EVERYONE CHRONY FOR EVERY GAME! RIDICULOUSLY SLOW between games.

Pros:
-Very safe environment
-lots of refs
-good staging areas with food and tables
-Busy... lots of other players
-Near my house...
-Reasonable Paint prices (40-60 per case 2000 balls)

Cons:
-SLOW between games
-Makes everyone chrony between EVERY GAME! ive never seen a field do this!
-rental fees are HIGH (20 dollars... plus a field fee?)
-field fee ALSO HIGH (15 dollars)
-disorganized... i asked for a hex key (allen wrench) to adjust my velocity because i forgot mine at home... didn't have one at the chrony (WHICH I WAITED FOREVER IN LINE FOR) so the ref there told me to go to their fill station and ask... well I went there and they said they had one but that I couldn't use it... WTF?! so I went to the front desk and they said to ask the refs... WOW im going in circles so I just had to ask the other players until I found a nice guy who let me use his.


conclusion:
this place might be the best place around southeast virginia, and they are definitely busy (because of all the military bases i think)... they have a couple decent sized woodsball fields and also a couple speedball fields... but it just makes NO sense to make everyone chrony between every game. maybe twice a day, if the temp changes and people are using CO2 then I would understand... MAYBE for people who JUST GOT TO THE FIELD or maybe for someone who might be suspected of shooting HOT... but to make EVERYONE chrony... AHH it was a nightmare! they could sell so much more paint if they would speed up the process... the people there are mainly nice and helpful, but they could stand to lower their rental prices... it would also be nice if the ref's at the chrono had a FULL SET of allen wrenches... that is just common sense.... a midday lunch break is RIDICULOUS especially if I am paying to be there... I could eat 3 hotdogs while standing in line waiting for 50 people to chrono... I bought 1000 rounds that day expecting to shoot them all before noon, and I left at three with 600 rounds... that's how slow this place is. Also when I got there, they ran out of paint for about 10 minutes... which of course didn't matter because it would be another 30 minutes before everyone got chronied for the next game.

All in all this place is nice and has potential... very safe but very slow... i still need to look around, because i think there could be better fields... but they won't be as close to my house as this one.

Thank you so much for your review.

Fox Brother's Paintball Park is proud to be labeled by this reviewer as an "overly safe" paintball facility. The welfare of our patrons is far more important to us than our bottom line. One incident of an irreversible injury could end the game for everyone, in more than one sense. We stand firm in our decision to not let greed take over our vision for a well-run, safe and healthy environment for all.

i am a player at fox and actually, the overall majority like the lunch break. If you notice most of the 100 customers are frequent repeats(twice a month). The reason for the chrony EVERY game is SAFETY. ALL markers malfunction and can shoot at dangerous levels. Fox trusts its customers, they have had kids grow up there. Also because they get so busy, they cannot supply customers with tools, they would run out. That being said it makes sense for you to have a repair kit, all avid players have one or should. BUT your right it is a little slow between games. Will has sped up game time.
