Other Fields
in the Area:
Gator : wouldnt play there for all the stories of tim's cons and canivery
CFP: wider assortment of players (especially tournament) but lacking in that "local" feel , atleast for me ....
Directions
to the Field:
Get on Northcliffe , turn into the curvy looking side of keysville turn into the parking lot at 4644 ...
Review: ahhh , Elite Paintball , a nice little place , family ran/oriented , very friendly and helpful staff ... in fact I Bet if you stick around long enough you practically become family yourself , i did .... this field helped norture me from being a little kid running wild with a walmart gun to small time tournament player with the local team back a while ago ... I Love this field and doubt i could ever call any other field "Home" , it's hard to describe... Elite has came a long way and along with it I Grew with it .... nothing could beat Spending time with my friends : Jerry , Mike , Steve-o , Bob , Garret and the Vovan Family ..

Safety is #1 around here , and the reffing staff enforces it firmly but without the shouting and craziness you could find at other fields ... Masks are required in all shooting areas and barrels are covered everytime the game has finished

There is 1 always up-to-date Xball Field , 1 Hyperball Field , The "Graveyard" (Speedball) , and a good medium sized plot of woods where attack and defend , elimination , and capture the flag are played .... theres also been well packed scenarios everyonce in a while too. fields are kept clean and as safe as possible ... (amdnoob has an even better description of the fields below.)

Hours of operation are early until as late as you want (within reason of course)

Prices Can't be beat anywhere , Mr. v (The Owner) really really keeps the prices low , so that us kids can afford so we can have play and have fun .... field fee is lower than anywhere i can think of , paint is well kept and quality and sold almost at the lowest he can sell it , and the same with all the other products ... BEST VALUES OF ANY FIELD ANYWHERE.... ANYWHERE !!!!! it's like wal-mart "we have it for less".

Rules are stucken to like traditon , i heard someone accuse the refs of being biased on here and highly disagree , we just get excited sometime or are trying to get the game going...... WE REFUSE TO CUT CORNERS WITH RULES....

services are great , and quick , mr.v will fix your marker and have you out there in no-time for a mere $5.00 , sometimes very technologically knowledgeable refs (Jerry) will be able to help with fixing your marker too ...... Co2 fills come standard with field fee all you have to do is ask a ref or mr.v .. and of course you do your own air tank fills .... Help is always available just ask a member of staff !! we arent mean, unhelpful and coldhearted like some other fields in the area (cough cough)

Proshop is neat , well swept , and well kept ....Air Conditioned ... Lots of nice gear and accessories to look at in there and staff are always willing to talk , help and demonstrate for you.... this is also where you can get replacement parts if you lose or break them and if we dont have something it can just as easily be ordered in for you ....

Staff : again you cant beat the friendliness and helpfullness , Mr. V is very knowledgeable , helpful and stays going to workshops to stay up to date with newer products and how to fix them ... Mrs. V and her mother will help you in anyway they can...(also Mrs. V and her mother can also be good psychiatrists/advice givers in free time , lol)

Refs do their job the best they can (even though it can get difficult now and then) but are dedicated to meeting the #1 safetey rules , #2 Making sure you have fun and are satisfied and #3 judging a fair game

Players : We could do with more...as the economy has hurt paintball alot but.... Players are mixed , in all ages and experiences , from young 10-13 , teen 14-19 , and older 20 - 50 ......... nothing to be worried of about though, we're all tight-knit and look out for eachother ...... so as well as being a safe place , its a good place to learn and gain experience... older players are always ready to lend a hand with learning anything and if you ask the ref , he might show you a thing or two as well .....

Facilities : 1 well kept porta-potty , but there is a proper toilet in the back if your touchy about using it , again just ask in the shop , they'll direct you to it...

Food isnt like some italian or french restaruant (of course haha ) but is well-cooked , tasty and great if your looking for an outdoor get-together/picnic type thing ... Theres Hamburgers, cheeseburgers , hot dogs and various snacks like chips and jerky and some candy bars ..... drinks are available too ,kept ice cold in the fridge, theres many flavors of soda , water ,gatoraid , poweraid , and DNA energy drinks .... great prices on all of this and i gotta admit those burgers are that fire........

only thing i consider a con is sometimes we're short of players , but that's up to you ! bring friends , bring co-workers , bring family , bring everybody and their brother and that brothers cousin ! , bring your kids and their school-mates for a birthday party .....come for a wedding or quincenera , or for team-building excercises , we'll be ready for ya !!!

OVERALL , I HIGHLY RECOMMEND THIS FIELD TO ANYONE BEGINNER OR EXPERT , YOU JUST CANT BEAT IT IN ANY OF THE CATEGORIES !!! LIKE SOMEONE SAID EARLIER "WORTH TRAVELING ACROSS COUNTRY FOR !!!!" Elite has came a long way , and I have went to this field for a long long time and know it like the back of my hand from playing and working there as a ref ........ nothing compares !!! the perfect family owned paintball field.. COME VISIT !!!

10 out of 10 , top-notch , A+ , excellent !!!! ------ Richard S.
