BSG in Richmond; great for recballers
The Realm located in Austin; nice 'Sup course, and at least four other recball/speedball courses
In comparison both are larger than Markham, but also more pricey.
Directions to the Field:
Just past the Post Office in Markham, can't miss the sign
This is a great field in my opinion. Cheaper than the other fields i've played at and the staff is super helpful and friendly. I've played at this field about three times and have yet to miss a walk on date, the actual field is larger than a reg. field which keeps newcomers to the sport from being ousted in the first few second (excluding the occasional longball). The reffing is also great, good at spotting tags, wipes,and helping with the rental guns during play. This field is also the place where i learned just about all i know, from a few local tourny players. All in all this is a great field for recballers and diehard ballers alike.

This is the Only field I have ever played on. But I do know several people who have played on other fields and they all agree that Markham Speed ball Corral is the best field they have played on. The field is larger than most speed ball fields which, makes even more of a challenge, the guys out there move around the field every few weeks so it's never the same thing. The atmosphere is family oriented, everyone is very friendly and helpful and you Can't beat their prices. The cost of their paint and supplies is cheaper and a higher grade than that of our local retail giant. The cost of ref. fees, co2 and field use is a lot cheaper than I have seen anywhere else. They excellent rental equipment and can get you pretty much anything you need. If you're looking for some where to take the family and have a good time, this is the place; I know, my wife and I play there often with our friends.
Ultimate Paintball, Brazos Splat
Both are great places to play, but pricey. Love the variety.
If you love Speed Ball this is all you need!! From the weekend warriors to the occasional players, they all made us feel right at home immediately. I had my sons b-day party there and within 1 hour they had all 6 boys holding there own against many of the regular players. The rental equipment was so well maintained I thought they had taken them right out of the boxes just for us. Masks were clean, scratch free, and NO hidden uglies in the creases or under the straps!! Every marker worked perfectly, and their prices can not be beat. Field size and layout was great. Each game lasted about 15 minutes, so not much down time, just enough time to catch your breath and make a new plan for your next round. And no mosquitoes!!! Good stock of parts and supplies, lots of knowledge and know how. The only site that returned my e-mails within a day. .
The pricing for paintball gear and supplies was the cheapest I have ever seen. I was able to play for 4 hours for $29. They supplied the paintballs and the CO2. The field was very well layed out and very competitive. This was my fourth time to play on the field, and each time it gets more enjoyable. The atmosphere at the paintball field was perfect for families, and the refs were friendly and courteous. A++++ in my book
