I recently went to this field and i gotta admit it was fun. 5 dollars gets u in plus another 5 for air for the day. the paintballs are a lil expensive but good quality their stinger paintballs. the place has three fields but the only good one is their woodsball one. the other two are a lil small and the barrel field is very bushy. overall the fierld is preety good a negitive feature is the fps (250) so u have to get close to get someone out,, i will go back to the field one day n hopefully their will be improved fields or just some cleaned up bigger ones
Empire Road most of the way down, take a left on Beach Road, then it will be on your right. Follow the signs.
The information from the post before me is still good including prices and such, I will just add points and things I know as a regular on the field.
Safety: They are big on safety here. They give you a pep-talk before you are allowed to play on the rules of the field, and will make you sit a game, or boot you if you're not following them.
Fields: They now have 3 fields and are still expanding. You have to remember that Sherkston Paintball only opened up last spring.
They started off with the one elimination field. This is still their main and favorite field to play on. It has many wood-stacked bunkers, some fallen trees, one two story building in the middle, and 4 more spread around the field.
Late last summer they opened up their attack and defend field. This field consists of a large wooden building with a pillbox, tower, and many windows. The other team starts outside and pushes in with many fallen tree, wood bunkers, a car, an old pop-up camper, and more. T
hey JUST opened up their newest field. This field is more grassy, with barrel bunkers and many places to stay low and sneak around.
They are working on finishing up the new field, and are also working on another field behind the attack and defend. The fields work seamlessly when they drop the ropes for bigger games. These happen often since Sherkston Paintball is inside Sherkston Beach Resort, which means there are many people that play in the summer.
Staff: The staff are very friendly and knowledgeable. If you have any questions what so ever, don't hesitate to ask.
Players: This field mainly hosts beginners to intermediate players ages 11-20. HOWEVER, there is a very diverse crowd that comes through Sherkston Shores. On any given day in the summer (mainly weekends), you could be playing with a group of older men on a day out, some actual good players that made the trip, speedballers, a tactical paintball team practicing, or a bunch of teens. Sherkston is a new field so it is still catching on with popularity. But it really is catching on fast! The word is getting out and Sherkston Paintball is getting more and more competition every weekend.
Conclusion: If you're in the area, and you like paintball, you have to check this field out. It's growing fast. It's a very family friendly environment and everyone always has a good time.

This is the only paintball in the area. The next closest one would have to be DMZ.
Directions to the Field:
MY EXPERIENCE: Generally this is a good field to play at if your starting out or just want to hang out with your friends, the people are very friendly. The velocity is set at 250 which is pretty decent but slow for outdoors IMO. They have a nice chrony range with plushies to shoot at. Nobody got into eachothers faces, there were no issues to resolve, good environment. They provided water and papertowels to clean the masks of the people I shot.
I went to this field with my cousin just to have a casual fun day and thats what I got.
This field is tricky to locate as they don't have many signs or indications where to go. It is located off of Beach road right beside where they are building that new tower.
Proshop- When I first walked in I noticed the proshop as thats all this place consists of. It sells low end markers with the exception of a Invert mini. It has a wide variety of products including but not excluded to barrel covers, o-rings, tanks, tank covers, barrels, other gun accessories such as hoppers +more, good place to go if your starting out.
Safety- The one thing they are strict on is safety. Goggles must be down before entering the playing site and barrel condoms must be on until we were about to start the game. They gave a little prep talk prior to starting the games.
Fields- There are two fields. One field is intended for the general purpose of attack/defend and the other field is intended for single elimination matches which is all we played on that one. The elimination field has mainly wood bunkers and trees to hide behind and there is a tower in the middle to walk up and a room underneath it to shoot from. The defend/attack field has a camper (trailor) that you can go in and shoot from, a car to hide behind and a mini silo??? Can't describe it lol. The rest of the bunkers on that field are consisting of skids, trees, wood piles and a few trench like dug areas. The area where you defend is a fort they built, it's pretty good and hard to penetrate, it has many windows a main door and other secret slits to shoot out of. Both of these fields of course are outdoors. The downside to this field is trying to run.. there are roots everywhere to trip on and huge branches that fell from the winter and rocks. I fell twice almost spraining my ankle.
Hours of operation- Check the website, we stayed there until we couldnt see anymore and arrived there at 2:00pm pretty sure they open at 11:00am though which is a very good time for long hours of play. They close at dusk.
Prices- Went during the march break, field entrance fee was free at this time and paint was $8/100, $14/200, $28/500, $100/200. Which to me is extremely cheap paint compared to other fields I played at where its $45/500 paintballs, $10/100 paintballs. I played with my pump gun and played for 5 and a half hours off of 150 paintballs.
Rules- Pretty straight forward, keep your goggles on, barrel condom on, walk off the field when shot out on single elimination games.
Staff- Is very friendly and easy to talk to, started a game whenever people were ready to and played what you wanted to play.
Players- Majority were younger (11-14), there were no experienced players with the exception of one that day and we always bumped into eachother.
Facilities- ONE outhouse.. i don't like outhouses so -1 rating there aha. Couldnt wash my hands..
Food/Drinks- They sold chocolate bars/chips and had gatorade/water and other drinks to buy.
Ref- Friendly, young (about 16 years of age). Not very experienced though, we only played three types of games, attack and defend, full field elimination and capture the flag (which was a barnie plushie.
I gave this field a rating of 7 because they are newer and don't have many game types + there isnt much competition there (atleast when i went although it was once so can't really base your decision of my experience). If you are new you will love this field, if you are a little experienced you will still love it. I've been playing religiously for the last 2-3 years and to me this field didn't give me the addrenaline rush I was looking for but in time this field will surely develop. Also I took off rating for not having good facilities, no one likes using a outhouse. +rating for proshop, safety, friendlyness, playing a lot of games, cheap prices, availability of snacks and water, cleaning materials,
