Pinnacle Woods - has more refs, but take longer to set up.
Other private fields
3-D's playing fields are pretty much a one-man operation. Noel (the owner) is a good safety officer and a good ref, he keeps his eyes on the game and is fair. Today he had two helpers, but it would have been useful to have two-way radios to help start and end the games. I was there as part of an arranged group, we got started around 9:00 AM.
The field is equipped to fill HPA (45 and 30) and CO2. Don't drive your low-rider, parking is in a grass field and the entrance is a little bumpy. Rental of Tippman 98's was $10, paint prices were fair ($40-$50 per case) and the field was was good at $15 including tank refills. Bring your own food and drinks.
They players were a good bunch, not a lot of temper flare-ups or cursing as you see sometimes. Everyone was game to play speedball or woodsball any time.
From Alliance, Take 225 North, to the Greenbower, Middletown road intersection, approx. 2 miles from city, Turn East, go to next intersection, Oyster Road, go North, Filed approx 1/2 mile on left.
Best Field I have played at, two speedball fields, regualar and air bags, numerous woods fields. Great time, Can rent on site if needed. Cheap. Noel is a good guy. If your going to watch, bring a mask, Sundays 10-about 3, 15 for field, paint is 35-50 a case.
Well, this field has a few wooded fields, and sometimes if Noel (the owner) feels like it, he sets up the airball field. Everyone their is very nice and Noel will gladly fix your gun (if you have any problems with it) It is 15 dollars for admission and 35 dollars for a case of paint. The paint is usually Circuit. Admission includes all day air. Field paint only.
Uh, there is kinda not any netting so if you watch you have to wear a mask. Noel will happily provide one free of cost.
I think the reason that most people don't play there is because the field is very diffcult to find. It is actually located about 10 to 15 minutes away from the shop. If Noel doesn't play then he usually refs. If he doesn't do it then you kinda have to volunteer someone. If you're worried about diffculty level of play, peple from 8 yr olds to really old play their so you don't really have to worry about that.
This is my home field, so of course i reccomed it but i think it's worth checking out.

First off I want to say that if you want to play at this field you have great taste. The fields there have a little bit for everybody from the rec players to the air-ball playing tournament style player. Noel, the owner, is a nice guy and always offers advice. The players are really nice too and are fun to play with. The prices are also really great. The paint is 35 and admission is 15 and includes all day air. There are just a few tiny problems that stuck out. One is that the field is located a few minutes away from the actual store and may confuse people looking for the field. Sometimes there are not any refs which means the people there have to be really honest. Last there is no netting so if you want to spectate you wear a rental mask and be pelted with paint. But still overall if your looking for a good time or if you are a frequent player this is the place to go!
Splat in Canal Fulton - about a 7
Intense Paintball in Canton - about a 9
I was here 9/18/04. It was a little muddy due to the fact we have had the remnants of two hurricanes come through the area within the last 10 days dumping several inches of rain.
I arranged a private party with ten people. Asked 27 people to go, but you know how that is with work and sports this time of year. Noel at 3-D Sports took care of us real good. He is a genuinely nice guy. Very helpful in keeping everybody's equipment up and running. He ran everything the whole day by himself without missing a beat.
The fields are set up really nice and they are in great shape. A must for anybody to play at. There is also a grill on site and several picnic tables to eat at.
The only negative things I can think of is:
The fields are not located at the shop on Union Ave.
The fields are a little hard to find unless you follow them there from the shop.
The wood plank bridge you cross to get into the field can be bad on a small and/or lowered vehicle.
That's about it, and those things don't affect my rating this place a TEN.
