i have played there a few times, its really fun.
really good setup,
bob is very helpful,
pretty much basic rules,
definetly worth going to.
check your local B&D for schedule.
different types of games.
i gave it a 7 because, in my opinion, its better than an average field,
Iv played at all the local fields and non compare to B&D.
Firestorm- firestorm has one air ball field that isn't even well kept. The bunkers are old. and the worst part is, is the refs don't seem to even enforce the rules! I saw a kid take his mask off and I had to be the one to yell at him. They didn't even pay attention to the game.
Hi-Tech- Good place, lots of fields, more woods ball oriented but some of the players that go to the field are a little to aggressive for most open field players.
Directions to the Field:
B&D is right off Laural Rd. behind driftwood kennels.
Field: B&D is a GREAT field. One large field with a fort in the back combines both woods ball and speed ball. The field is mostly open with some trees here and there. There is a homemade snake which players can crawl all the way up to the other side of the field.
Safety: The field has good safety rules that are strictly enforced.
Hours: The field is open on most weekends.
Prices: the same as all the other local fields
Rules: are the basics and make the game fun for all levels
Services: The owner Bob is a great guy and will help out with any problem that arises.
Proshop: B&D owns two shops one in Venice and one in North Port
Refs and Staff: the refs are great and understanding especially because they are B&D's team players. As for the owner Bob, hes a nice guy who is extremely helpful.
Its a really sweet field. My favorite part is the snake. Go there at like 8 in the mornings when its open an u pay like $12 for all day an u get pizza an coke. A cheep price for a whole lot of fun. Fun for kids an adults. The Southern Patriots favorite practice field. The refs are fair an Dave's the man. Souther Patriots
the owner is a really nice guy, him and his wife dont try to rip u off like some other fields do, their are just good people here, the ref's no waht they are doin, all of them play pb, so trust them with the calls. the fields are awesome too man, i would go back again and again, but i live in jax fl. keep it up bob and lyn!
As far as I know this is the only real field in the Venice/Englewood area. I know of many outlaw fields.
The field was nice. It was a medium sized speed ball field with a few ref on alert. Bob hes cool. Paints cheap about $40 for premium or Big Ball. They have a scenario field also but I haven't used it. Over all its a good field. Oh BnD also has 3 store one in Engelwood one in North Port and one in Venice on 41.
