Review: I played here on Labor day weekend (Sunday) 2008.

I was able to play for about 3 hours on this field and I have to say I had a great time.

Safety was indeed a first priority for this field. Not once did I feel unsafe. Safe zones and goggles on area's were clearly marked.

I met with (and played paintball with) one of the owners, Glen, who was a very friendly guy, that cares about his field and advancing the sport of paint ball.

There were plenty of Refs on hand and all were of a good quality and understood their job.

I believe at the time I played they had five fields although I only had time to play speedball on the hayfield, which is a speedball field made of hay, really cool to actually see 'puff's' from your paintballs hitting the bunkers.

I also played 'The Knoll' which was a nice field with good cover, and lots of hilly areas that you can't see over or around. A stream also runs through this field.

Field entry was between $20-$25 including taxes paid on field entry and $60 dollars for a case of paint, a better grade is available for $75.

There was only a small store which had basic paintball stuff available (o-rings etc.) , the staff in the office were two friendly girls, one of which was the owners daughter.

I don't know if beverages were available as I brought my own and did not notice.

The players at the field were typical paintball types, after a short time even though some of us had just met we were talking like old friends, this goes for the staff also.

For a Field that has been in business a little over a year Yankee Paintball is GREAT!!! I will be returning when I am in CT again and have the time. They made me feel like I was home!

As a previous poster said, "All in all, a very comfortable setting for new and seasoned players alike!"
