Unfortunately, this field is closed down as far as i know... Its very sad it was a fantastic field...
They had great prices, a humungous field and a very friendly staff. The pro shop was well stocked with all sorts of gear, from every desirable gun to all the parts you'd need.
This field had self serve fill stations, one that actually went up to 4500psi. I guess this excellent field was too expensive to maintain, (wasn't in a ghetto industrial area like every other field I've been to.)
Please correct me if I'm wrong, but I stopped by a few weeks ago and it looked like they closed up shop.

from burlington, head towards hamilton, once you cross the lift bridge look for fruitland rd
ok so iv been there a few times and there is usually (90%of the time) 2 refs on the recball field and one on the speedball field. it is VERY well lit unlike the previously mentioned PBA and it is very clean.. it has turf (some type of artificial turf) which is awesome compared to (again) PBA (bare concrete), air-ball bunkers on both the recball and speedball fields which get changed every so often, self fill stations for owners with their own tanks. full stocked pro-shop on your left when you walk in, field is to the right.. tons of room to get set up equivalent to another field..
currently they do 50$ cases on tuesdays fridays and sundays with 20$ entry (gold membership 10$ entry, platinum membership free)
by far the best field iv been to in a long time.. if you are in the oakville, burlington, hamilton or stoney creek area you should definatly check it out..
This is probably the cleanest indoor field you can find in the area south of Toronto. So clean that i could wear my shoes to school the next day if i really wanted to.
safety was pretty good, even an area outside of the actuall fields where you had to keep your mask on since you were close to the field entries. (you'll know what i mean once you see it.)
fields recball was a little crowded with the bunkers, but speedball was nice. i never understand why indoor fields are so dark but it happens, actually a bit lighter than most fields. turf was awesome
refs were good, a lot of noobs, food was good, and the proshop was stocked with tons of cool stuff.
Definatly reccomend this place and i will deff buy a membership
- amazing field
- rec ball and speed ball fields
-big sitting area
-pro shop is good
-good competition, no matter what skill level you are
- rec ball field can have to many bunkers and can get really packed, but I would recommend tryin it out.
-speed ball field is amazing! just enough bunkers, a wide variety of bunkers, and you get some pretty skilled kids playin on that field.
-paint is cheap on byop days
-overall great field
Take QEW to Fruitland Road then turn right on S. Servive Road.
I just got back from playing here and I must say that it is probably the best run field I have been to.
I will break this review in to 3 parts: BYOP Field, Rec ball field, and other comments.
-well layed out with just the right amout and variety of cover
-you are allowd to switch between rec ball and speedball fields at any time
-well organized with great refs (unlike Paintball City)
-ground is turf!!
Rec Ball Field
-more than enough cover (almost too much)
-ground again is turf
-bunkers are basically speedball bunkers but with differnet designs (which is really cool)
-some of the bunkers are way to big and are just a spot for beginners to just sit and do nothing
-Prices are really good compared to other indoor fields
-Gold membership is only $35!!!
-staff are friendly and are willing to help with any problems
-self fill station for people with HPA
-Pro shop is well stocked and has almost everything you could need
-very big staging area
As I mentioned before this is probably the best field that I have played at and would recommend it to anyone.
No other indoor fields in the area.
Eastie Boyz - comparable
A51 - gravel surface; not enough setup space
Sgt Splatters - sand, dark, small setup area, expensive
Directions to the Field:
Just west of Fruitland and QEW on South Service Road.
Prices are comparable to most indoor facilities. Gold membership seems to fit the bill for me and will pay for itself within 4 outtings during BYOP.
There are 2 fields: One scenario and One X-ball/Speedball. Essentially the difference between the 2 fields would be the graphics and style of the bunkers; they are all inflatable bunkers. Also, the scenario players shoot way less paint.
Surface: artificial turf with some padding
Lighting: adequate. Best to use a clear lense. Slightly tinted lense would work.
Field size (X-ball/Speedball): Rectangluar shaped. Will support up to 8 vs 8. I think any higher than that becomes more difficult, but is do - able.
Setup area: big and well lit with lots of tables. Unfortunately, when players drop paint and it breaks on the floor of the setup area, the floor gets really slippery. However, if you bring it to the attention of staff, they will quickly clean up without giving any attitude.
Staff: very helpful and friendly
Refs: they do their best and are respectful and deserve respect
Party rooms available with viewing windows towards the scenario field. Clean washrooms (well, at least the mens).
Players: are generally respectful of each other and show good sportsmanship.
For me, BYOP times would work out best. WHITE FILL ONLY. If you're going to buy paint elsewhere, make sure its WHITE FILL. The WDP Battleball they sold (instead of Stingers) were not very good; oversized (barrel breaks with a 0.691 barrel for me and in a 0.693 barrel for my buddy's Etek), and dimpled and didn't shoot straight (combine oversized and dimpling caused crazy curving paintballs). Would be to your advantage to buy their Marbalizers (for $15Cdn more per case).
Just to clarify my ratings. A "10" would be an air conditioned field similar to Cameron's Indoor but instead of splitting the field into 2 fields, one field would be created and much brighter lighting. Also, prices would remain the same. Financially, such a field wouldn't survive.
9/10 for this field (Highly Recommended)
I definitely will go again. Great place.

The accuracy of this review is disputed. Please see discussion on the comments page.
Period of Field Use:
Less than a month
March 15th, 2008
Other Fields in the Area:
Cameron Outdoor Area
Soldiers of Fortune
Directions to the Field:
It's along the South Service road, and has the big yellow banner. Really hard to miss.
I've gone to the field twice and I've generally had a great impression of the field.
It has two fields, one xball, one recball.
My first indication was the prices are a wee bit expensive compared to the Outdoor area. Although, I was skeptical at first, I've found it really worth it. The services there are a pro-shop and the field staff help with anything else you need.
On that note, the staff is amazing. Always helpful, always courteous. Refs were really strict on safety and actually jumped in the way of a new player when he partially took his mask off and got shot a few times.
Facitilies is great, and if I remember correctly, heated as well.
Food was good, and pretty cheap.
Oh, as a side-note, the bunkers were not really anchored well. My friend took out a bunker by sliding into it.
I would give it a nine, but the prices really turn me off and keep me from playing there too often, and go to the Outdoor field much more. Thus that is a negative one to the review for my opinion.
8/10 (Highly recommended)
