Review: I know I've not played long, and I'm just into it for the fun. I have no intention of joining a team or anything like that, I just have a great time doing it with my boyfriend and friends. Anyway, heres what I think - I played at this course one time (it was exactly the 3rd time I've ever played) and I had a great time! Sure you have to walk a bit, but I didn't think it at all excessive. Also, let me stress that I PREFER the war type games over speed ball - if you're really into speedball, then you probably won't like this course as much. Anyway, I'm going again as soon as possible. Everyone was really nice to me, I didn't see alot of attitude towards newbies or walk-ons. The Ref we had that day went out of her way to make sure the teams were even and no one was shooting hot, but like others said, nothing is stopping you from readjusting after the game starts, and plenty do. I'd like to check out others, but as far as I'm concerned - this place beats out Urban Quest BY FAR! and I had a realy good time. I do have a few complaints as you'll see below, but nothing major. the only reason I'm giving it just a 7 is because I don't have enough to compare it too.

Pros
Its beautiful
Costs are the same as Urban Quest or other fields I've looked up (but @ UQ you don't have to buy their paint at all, but god help your wallet if you do!)
The courses are really elaborate
Big Courses, (at least you don't have teams of like 25 to 25 on a field the size of my backyard and so much paint flying you can't even move)
the courses are well maintained
everyone was really nice

Cons
for as big as the courses are, and considering the walk - the games should last longer, like 45 min or so.
Hornets DO wipe, cheating is cheating, and its LAME!
Hot Guns - I has some really bad bruises and welts after that day
surcharge for bringing your own paint - that really is unnessary.
the owner is a bit of an ass (I won a marker in the raffle, and he had completely stripped it first. On the other hand, whatever - it was free.)
