Big Shots Paintball (Closed now), Panther Paintball, Ambush Piantball, North Shore Paintball
Directions to the Field:
turn off Hwy 99 towards Ferry Terminal, turn left at last road before water, its the one across from the park and ride for the ferry
This Field is a great one if your looking for a drop in game or all day play for both renters and owners alike. This place has two sped ball Fields, two bush ball Fields (one private one public). The staff at the Field are good about safety and are always helpful. You cant use a barrel plug but you can use a barrel cover/condom. There are always lots of people that on the weekends, last sunday of the month in a member day, cheap paint, so tons on ppl come out. All in all this is a great place to play paintball no matter what your likes or skill leve are.
The prices here aren;t bad for vancouver, but the rentals are pretty steep.
The field itself is okay, the size isn;t bad and it has some good scenario terrain, btu if you are a woodsballer like me it isn;t great at all, to much open and just big stumps. The staff are realy friendly and will help you out with any gun issues.
But the chief flaw is the Ref's. They are fair, they are good at making sure nobody is cheating and they actualy enforce cheatin unlike some refs who just give warnings. There problem is the make the games way to small. They crammed about 50 to 75 players inot a 150 by 75 ft area. They try and make the games as little long distance as possible so you'll waste more paint. The games woudl be awsoem if they expended the boundries and they can they have tons of room, but they make the games cramped. Also dont; play ambassodor on the defensive, you just end up gettign shot alot.
The field is okay but you have to convince the Ref's to make the games bigger, I give the field a 8 but because the games get messed up because of distance it gets a 5.5
lots of cover
cool lay out
awesome senario games
i dont like the fact that its really bigg, becasue the guys are more spreed out and stuff,
u have to take off ur co2 when u leave enter the safty area (its a big hassel and they dont let u use barrel plugs)
its a good field, but i like panther better, becasue they have like 8 fields (smaller..if you like small ones) and u can use barrel plugges
WOW im the last person to give directions here, took me 3 hours to get here when it should have only taken 1
I went for the grand opening of the grass speedball field. Both the dirt and grass fields are superb, good paint prices, cool refs. Definatly a sweet place to play ill be back lots of times. Service was awesome. 4500 air fills was great, basically couldnt ask more for a place to play speedball. It was way worth the drive. Playing against and with a great team like vancouver shock was awesome, they show you alot of things. Definatly going at least once a month.

Lets start off with rental equipment. Its the Tippman pro/carbine there in relatively good shape, there have been no ball breaks for me when I tried it out, they use blaze paint the last time I was there, there free co2 refills were good and I give it a 8 for rental equipment. I curently use an A-5 so doesnt matter for me.
Staff. They are absolutely fanatical about saftey. The last time I played there 2 kids got booted because they took off there masks twice jsut to annoy the reffs. If you do that they will boot you. They really down to earth people, and quite helpful if you ask nicely. I give it a 9.
The players. Its a combination of pros and newbies. Some days you can find your the only good player on the field, and others you find intermediate teams that are actually playing tourneys are at the field. A field for pros and newbs alike.
The field. Its actually good, compared to some places down south and in Ontario. If you and your team start up ontop of the ridge then you already have the advantage of height and we all know that means you also have the advantage of range. If you start in the forest area down below you have two options rush them or setup ambushes and make them come to you and face them on even ground. The problem is if either side gets flanked from the rear depending if the player or players are good or newbs they have relatively just won the game. Its a combination of nice foilage, natural elevation, man made entrenchments, and the fire bse in the middle. For the field its an 8.
One game we had to play as defenders of the fire base, its hard but fun.
Overall its an 8. Its a good field but could be much better in terms of rental equipment, field conditions, and play time.
To get to Tsawwassen Paintball, follow Highway 17 towards the Tsawwassen Ferry Terminal. Pass by the waterslide park on your right, and then turn left at Tsawwassen Drive. The parking lot is on the right and the field is immediately on the left. See you there!
this is a great field run by experienced staff and reffs that sometimes come out and play on there off days every couple of months they with have scenario games. Also every Sunday and Wednesday they have speedball. The bad thing is that the other field is only open on the weekends for drop in games the rest of the time its private games. they have good tippman rental guns and lower rates for people with there own guns. they dont let you bring paint like like some places do but if you go to something like a senario game and you bough a strough box of 2000 thell let you bring thoses back for another time.
P.S. The reffs are super on safety they make shure you dont leave the paint ball waiting area without a barrel condom or taking off your co2/air and they dont let you in without a mask

This Field Is My Favourite!
I participated in the June 5 scenario game Armies Of Darkness and it was the best game I have played. This place has a wide variety of bunkers and buildings, not to mention the vast amount of brush to hide in. This is definatley a place I would go to whether I own a gun or was renting.
-Great Scenario Games
-Good Bunkers Cover etc.
-Free Air Refils
-Sells Food And Drink
-Can't Bring Own Paint
-Lots Of Experienced Players Go There
(First Time Players Might Want To Try Another Place For First Game Unless You Are Brave And Willing To Take On Some Good Players)

This field is fun and has very good refs and staff, the price for paintballs is 8$ for gun owners which is still steep but slightly cheaper than other placed in my area. The field is pretty big and i think that they are soon to get an air ball field. The refs are very good and knowledgeable. It is one of the best woods ball fields ive been to.
I played a TPG at their recent scenario game, "Axis vs. Allies" which held 350 players with reincarnation for 7 hours of gameplay.
WOW was it fun. Their refs were very observant and helpful throughout the game. One of them spotted paint on the top of my mask that I did not know was still there and sent me off as a hit, but I am very happy that this happened since it proves how "awake" they are on the field.
Their other staff was extremely helpful in getting my gun to function properly, they had the best smokies I have ever had, and the Blaze paint was only marked up 10 bucks from what it would be on the store shelves.
I think I have found myself a new weekend home...
I give it a 9 though because the starting points are too close together to make very good use out of the entire field.
