Other Fields
in the Area:
I have played everything from Showtime Paintball out in the woods in Assonett, to First Shot Indoor in Fall River, to PNL in Bridgewater, and South Coast Paintball in New Bedford. Balls to the Wall is second in my overall favorite fields only to South Coast...and thats only due to distance and cost.
Review: Ok so a while ago my uncle got into paintball and we started playing. Living in New England it kinda sucked when we had to play out door in 30 degree weather. My uncle found Balls to the Wall on the internet and we planned an outting with about 20 guys. We got there and the service was great, and very fast. We were in the upstairs staging area in no time and everything was taken care of. We had a load of new players with us and the refs did a good job of keeping control and reassuring the new players. They also did a very good job with integrating our group with the other ten or so people there. The fields up stairs are plenty fun if you are there for just that, fun. They have rubber floors which can be pretty slippery, and they shove about twenty people on a speedball field smaller than a 3 man field.

The real fun to be had is down stairs. We have a team and the facilities down stairs are second to none. NPPL sized with great layouts, and turf. They have a five man and three man field, as well as a snap cage. You can tell that down stairs was made with competitive players in mind. We went down and some of the refs jumped in and played with us, and those guys know what they are doing. Every ref there seems to be one hell of a player too. We had so much fun that we planned a friday night practice there this past week.

Only four guys from our team (we field a 3 and 5 man team) could make it, but that was fine. A few refs were down there and helped us set up drills and scrimmages. They played with us and seemed intent on making us better. One ref even invited us to come out on the same day as his 7 man team, so we could get a whole lot of help. These guys want you to have alot of fun, learn as much as possible, and get better. If you honestly want to get better do NOT be scared to talk to these guys.

I will throw in a warning though. If you dont play speed ball alot go down stairs and see what is going on. You will find a load of tournament players down there. Ask yourself the following: "Am I serious about being a better player, or do I just want to play on nice facilities?". If the answer is yes to both of those then go on out and be prepped to get covered in paint. Just take a look at the skill level down stairs before you commit to playing there :]

All that said the prices are kinda steep. About 75 bucks on 5 dollar sundays and about 95 on a normal day with a premium case of paint. Totally worth it though. They were supposed to close at 8 the last practice we had, and stayed open until 11 because they are all about you having fun and getting better.
