I have been going to Davis on a regular basis for the past two years and I've got to say that Davis continues to amaze me. I have been going there every weekend for the past year and there always seems to be something new at the field.
What makes Davis shine above all its competition is that it truly caters to everyone. With its 40 acres of land Davis is host to over 6 large recreation fields with new ones being constructed and old ones modified on a weekly basis. There is also a very fun hyperball field available along with a CQB course for those who like to get down and dirty. For the speedball/tournament players out there Davis has the best turf money can buy. It truly is the best turf that can be found at any of the local fields.
While most fields will claim to cater to the full spectra of paintballers, from pro to beginner, the Davis Paintball Center lives up to its word. There is a very welcoming laid back atmosphere at the Davis field. The staff is very helpful with questions and assistance with repairing equipment. They make a conscious effort to split up the experienced players from the newer or first time players. Unlike other fields where the local teams tend to dominate the airball field, Davis will make sure that if a rec group wants to play on the airball field they will get rotated in equally, which brings up another great thing about Davis. There's never really a long line you have to wait in to get in a game of airball. You don't have to put your team name down on a sign up list just to get a chance to play on the turf field. You don't even need to come to the field with a team, as long as you show up you will get placed on a team for a game. The refs allow you to switch up the teams at your leisure so you get a chance to play with everyone.
On top of the great fields that Davis has to offer, Davis plays host to events that cater to everyone's tastes.
Davis is the only field in the area that hosts successful pump days on a regular basis where pump players get sole reign over the turf field for a day along with play in pump-only rec-games. Micah, former pro-paintballer for team XSV and owner of Davis Paintball Center, also throws the only pump event series in the area.
For those who are into tournament paintball Davis plays host to the PFOA, Paintball Field Owners Association, a local tournament series for young guns, beginners, and D5 teams that awards their teams with actual cash prizes.
For those who are more into recball, Davis hosts a Big Game every first Saturday of the month. For these Big Games all the rec fields are opened up and different games/scenarios are played out. At the end of the day theres a big raffle where prizes big and small are given away. Micah has raffled off great prizes such as an EGO 08, GEO, CCM S6, Etek2's, pants, jerseys, season passes to the field, and much more.
Overall Davis is my favorite field in the area. It has something for everyone. It caters to the beginner, the tournament player, the pump player, and the recballer. No matter where your interests lie Davis has you covered. They even have airsoft come out every other Saturday if that is what you are in to. Their airball field is the nicest around. The attitude found at the field is laid back and friendly. There is no drama at the field that you hear about at other fields. If you are looking for a fun field to spend a day at definitely check out Davis Paintball Center.
Dispute: This is incorrect many other local fields in the area host pump days that have been going long before davis aswell as NATIONAL pump events.There are an increasing number of very misleading reviews spreading over the internet from employee's of this field.
