A.P.G., Sams Paintball. The closest comparison for me would be Extreme Paintball in Modesto. I enjoy Extreme but after visiting Capital Edge I will definitely be returning here first! What a great place to play!
Directions to the Field:
We took Highway 99 to Florin Road and just go out Florin Road, VERY easy to find and close to Sacramento.
I have been playing paintball for 15+ years. I have played and MANY paintball fields in California and this is one of the best ran, most polite, best laid out and FUNNEST fields I have ever been to.
The Highlights: The staff and reffing were awesome. Here's a tip to other fields in CA. Make sure your reff's and staff are FRIENDLY and know what they are doing and Capital Edge has done a great job of this on both fronts. Friendly, knowledgable and approachable. FIeld owners, want to know how they do it? They pay there refs in CASH and train them well.
The Fields: Easy and accessible layout. I played on a very soft and well maintained Air Ball field on TURF all day! I played so many games I lost count. This was the intermediate group, we had usually 1 ref sometimes two and everyone there was game to just play as much as possible. Pick up games were organized by both players and refs and everyone seemed to get equal playing time. I also played the 'Playground' field and it was very well laid out and had soft ground/grass to slide on. The fields were one of the best parts of the experience.
The Staff: Everyone I spoke to was polite, curtious and friendly. I cannot say enough awesome things about the staff. When the rules were explained it was done in a manner I have never seen at a paintball field. The ref giving the 'rules' speech was calm, polite and knowledgeable. His speech was short and to the point.
Location: I am from Stockton CA, so I have to travel in order to play. The drive was short and the field was VERY easy to find. There was plenty of parking, bathrooms, food etc.
Conclusion: I was watching the rec players closely and all I saw was smiles, laughter and memories being made. There was a LARGE rec group playing all day until the last game of the day. I spoke to one of the head refs and chatted with him with how impressed I was by the staff, layout and field itself. He was very gracious and we shook hands. He told me that the field was having an event for the Wounded Warrior Foundation Nov 3rd. How awesome is this field? They help wounded soilders! Thats how awesome they are!
