Directions
to the Field:
Found out the place was a trailer with a gate in front of it. NOTE: There is a sign before it saying "Next left" and make sure you take that left in the little opening. I missed it myself just because theres no sign but in really small print it says "Players Sports Park PRIVATE PROPERTY" which was a strain to read.
Review: I will go through pretty much what everyone wants to hear:

Rentals: They were Tippman Carbines with those grips you get on the barrel. Gas tanks were Pure Energy ones that are steel, quite good as i got about 500 balls off each tank. the guns were good considering they broke only 1 ball out of the 600 i shot(but i was doing really fast trigger walk at that time). I shot 1 inch thick fence posts from about 15 yards away and the second paintball hit, I was impressed at the accuracy. Masks were a so-so. Some had really good padding while the others had that scratchy foam padding, the really firm but large pored ones.

Note: While rating this i was checking out my friend's equipment, I had my own gun and hopper that i switched back over. If i was to compare my Ion to the Carbine, I'd say the Carbine shoots probably 10 yards less of straight flight and is maybe 50% louder than my ion. Great guns

Rentals I give it a 9/10 (10 being better masks :)

Field: The fields were ok. They had some awesome woodsball field but i would like it if they would process their X-ball field. Had random patches of dirt and the grass was needed to be cut. Was hoping they would set the bunkers the same way they set it up in their gallery but I guess i came at a wrong time when their snakes were short(when i mean short i mean only 3 low bunkers and 2 cylinder bunkers).

Field: I give it a 8/10(10 being similar to Young Guns fields with nice trimmed x-ball field. I was pretty sure it was artificial turf but you'll never know)


Prices: Everything was great with full-day rentals + 500 paintballs for $45 is pretty good. The only down part was the prices of the Paintballs. 160/2000 was pretty hefty price but I just snuck in some of my Empire paintballs which were same fill and colour so i didn't have a problem with this.

Prices: 7/10( 10 being the paintball prices at around $50 per box)

Staff: Nice staff i have to say. Refs were pretty cool but one was one of guys who are unsure about their humour so they talk in a monotone. The other guy i found out was pretty good because he talked over about gripping the gun, how to un-jam, safety, and strats. The guy who is in charge of the rentals is some buff guy with a hunting knife in his pocket(I know because i asked him if i could use them)but he was cool too. The one that i will always remember is the hot cashier for the place.

Staff: 10/10 YEY

For all you concerned people, prices for drinks were pretty decent. The toilets are not. If you dont mind porta potties then thats not a problem for you :P
I advise you to force one out at home before going because i bet a better way of relieving yourself is the bush.

Nothing really compares to the hospitality of this place.
Review: Fair prices, excellent facility, extremely accomodating. The people who run this place knwo what they're doing and they have great equipment. Everyone is very friendly and knows how to treat a customer. Also, the feilds are great. Not too much man made stuff but alot of fun feilds. I'm mostly an airball guy, but this place really impressed me. It's a great place to have fun with your friends.
