#### UPDATE AS OF 30 AUGUST 2009: After several months assiting with the managers and other dedicated volunteers, Xtreme Paintball 2.0 will reopen September 5 2009!!!!!! Due to the larger size in land we were able to add multiple fields within the land that was given. On Aug 29, we did a "Dry Run" with 20 people utilizing many senarios on the different fields. The reason for this was to ensure the different fields were properly constructed with no favors to any sides and that players can enjoy themselves in a safe enviroment. They (management) recieved lots of compliments with the new paintball field.
We hope to have a large crowd attend the official grand opening of Xtreme Paintball 2.0 on September 5, 2009 starting at 9:30am

WE'RE BACK IN BUSINESS!!!!!


Xtreme Paintball was temporarily closed due to demolition of old homes around the paintball area. Per the base's request, equipment from the paintball field had to be removed for the demolition.

The latest update I recieved is that demolition "should" be completed by end of April 2009. Once that is complete the base is looking to give up some land for Xtreme Paintball. The next phase will then be to set up the field, and reopen it.

As a new volunteer to the site it's great to see alot of people (ranging from the inexperienced to the most experienced) passing by on the weekend to play for the whole day. Xtreme Paintball's management and it's employees appreciate the customers coming back and spreading the word to other paintballers. We all know this field could not be possible without it's loyal customers. That is why we try to make it exciting, safe, and keep the scenarios fresh for the customers.

With the reopening of Xtreme Paintball, we hope to keep these standards going with the addition of making this new site more pleasing for everyone to enjoy!

1st off the only main weakness is you need a pass to enter the base. To be able to get the pass you need someone (who has a military identification) to sponsor you. If you know someone who works in the base then you should have no problem. Either way this can be an annoyance.

With that aside, Xtreme Paintball is pretty damn sweet! The staff is very knowledgable when it comes to paintballing, and overall pretty cool to talk to.

The field consists of 2 blocks of empty homes with 1 speedball field and 1 airball field. While the field only has 1 block open for regular hours of operation they do open everything during special events.

Speaking of hours of operation as of April 1 their hours are:
Monday - Friday = Reservations only
Saturday = 10am - 4pm
Sunday = 1pm - 5pm

On Saturday about 50 to 70 people show up and on Sundays around 40 show up. As the summer progresses, more and more people show up on both days.
As for special events Xtreme Paintball hosts many from small ones up to big events that have over 200 people in attendance!

Prices are also very competitive if not cheaper than all other surrounding paintball fields! They now use HPA on their marker packages which that is a big plus. Another is they do take care of their marker by cleaning at the end of the day and immediately replace any broken markers or other equipment.

Another thing Xtreme Paintball takes in consideration is SAFETY! All the refs and the person in charge understand that being safe plays a major role every day, both on the field and off. Before anyone can play a game they must go though a safety bief (a thorough one at that), a marker check using a chronograph. as well what to do if your mask falls off your face while playing. Xtreme Paintball staff ALWAYS ensure players have either a barrel plug/condom on before you leave the field for added security, even not shooting an opponent within certain feet. To Xtreme Paintball safety is paramount!

Travis AFB Xtreme Paintball has also been noticed by poplular paintball magazines such as Paintball 2 Xtreme with pictures from several big events

Overall, Xtreme Paintball is very safe, it's secure (on a military base, duh), it's cheap, and fun. Everyone who is into paintball or who is interest should at least stop by and check it out, you won't be dissapointed.
