Review: A friend and I decided to make a roadtrip to PA this weekend from Virginia. I had seen the signs for Wanna Play on several occasions as I travelled through on Route 15, but had never been able to stop. The drive up Route 15 from DC is a very pleasant and relaxing drive. The field is located right off the main highway and has a well maintained gravel parking lot with plenty of room for parking and had ample room for gear staging.

The owner, Sheldon, was very nice and welcoming. I had emailed him earlier in the week and the response was incredibly fast. He was as pleasant in person as he was via email. I was impressed with the space and ease to set up.

My initial impression of the refs at the field was very solid. Before the day even began they were cleaning up the parking area and looking for even the most minor specks of garbage. They were all incredibly friendly and were proactive in encouraging the players to be diligent to safety rules. Unlike many other fields, the refs at Wanna Play would engage the players in conversation (intelligent at that). Wanna Play should be commended for the staff they have.

As the weather was unseasonably warm (Approaching 95 degrees with High Humidity and a heat index over 110), we had to wait for some players to show up but we were able to get in several games of 2 on 2, 3 on 3 on the hyperball field. Again, the refs were proactive to ensure that people kept masks on and that safety rules were followed. They were incredibly good about getting games in a swift manner without making the players feel rushed. As additional players arrived, we geared up and went to their village woodsball field. They have a nice Alamo style fort in the middle with bunkers, buildings, etc. surrounding it. It's an interesting layout and played well. I have to really compliment the head ref as he was diligent about looking after the needs of the players while maintaining their safety. There aren't a lot of refs as professionally skilled as he is.

My day ended shortly after these games as I broke my toe (due to my clumsiness) after I tripped, not paying attention to where I was running. That's my only disappointment on the day as I was looking forward to sampling more of what Wanna Play had to offer. My friend ran some one on one games and drills with some of the local players and we ended up chatting with several other regulars which was also enjoyable.

I was impressed with the quality of their airball fields and the quantity of grass they had. After I heal up, I'll make the road trip up there again. This seems to be a first class operation and worth the trip.
