Review: I first started playing paintball in 1985 with a modified sheridan air rifle. As the sport became more popular over the years the number of people playing on the fields increased. When this happened I noticed that field safety was slackening to a point that sport was getting to dangerous in my opinion,due to poor sportsmanship and the lack of concern for safety of the players on the field from the people who were managing the fields and only wanted my money . So in 1988 I stopped playing on a regular basis out of frustration over the lack of professionalism in the sport of paintball.
Over years now and then I would play paintball,but as usual I would see bad management on the fields until one day two good friends of mine told me about this paintball field call FOX-4 in UPTON,M.A., that it was the best paintball field they had ever been too. They knowing my opinion on the sport had to drag me kicking and screaming to FOX-4,was I in for a shock.
At the end of the day playing paintball at FOX-4, I honestly can say it was the best time I had playing the sport in 17 years. The reasons for this is as followed.

(1)The excellent field management of the referees. At the start of each day with the group of players,or later walk on's,the referees would go over the safety rules of the field in detail. It didn't matter to them if you were a new player or an experienced one, everyone had to listen and understand the safety rules of their field no matter how many times you played at FOX-4. They made it very clear if you did not adhere to the safety rules you would be told to leave and NOT to come back. This clearly shows that the owners of FOX-4 take the training of their referees very seriously. Everyone gets thier marker chroyed,even the referees carry hand held chroies out on the field.

(2)The sportsmanship of the players is great. I have yet to hear an full blown argument in the middle of a game between players or players against a referees decision.This of course is a direct reflection on a well managed field.

(3)The field its self is great. It has a 2 speed ball courts and I think 5 woods-ball areas with each having its own different settings, all well maintained. FOX-4 could hold easily 300 players or more. They have plenty of port-o-johns to accommodate the groups of players. And they have a hotdog vendor on site. FOX-4 also sell refreshments

(4)The pro-shop is very good.The people who work there are very friendly and knowledgeable of the products they carry.There is an air-smith and tool shop on site. I believe the air-smith is one of the owners of FOX-4. This gentleman is always there and is always ready to answer a question and to give out good advice. This is why I bought my Tippman A-5 at his shop. I didn't feel like he was trying to push something on me that I didn't need. I am a recreational player. The store itself is very well stocked with everything paintball player needs to modify his marker, to clothes,and accessories. If you don't see what you need they can order it for you.

All this comes down to one thing, an excellently run business, who cares about the safety of its customers and the professionalism of its employees so that everyone will have a great time at FOX-4.This is why FOX-4 gets a 10 from me.
