wasaga beach paintball
Directions to the Field:
some where in pickering near the honda dealer. And the same bulding as premium paintball products.
This place is awesome!!!!! Man this field is really good. The refs make sure that you have your mask on. I got told of by one of the refs not to take your mask off on the field. Because i did when the mach is over. So the safety is pretty good there. They have windows so you can see them play, but they have netting over the window so know one will get hit. The paintballs are a little expensive. Everyone there was nice and played fair. There pro shop is huge and is called premium paintball products and the are the only place in canada that carry the fusion markers. The refs are also nice. They have a place where you can look out to see the players. Also next has a playing tourney. Where you can when prizes. Aslo they have special lighting sometimes. Overall i think this filled is great. I give them a 9/10.
In Pickering off the 401 like everyone else has posted.
This is a really professionally run field. The staff are helpful and actually are interested (unlike the impression you get at several competing fields in the area).
I have played twice here on Wed night half price days. As a gun owner the way to go is BYOP and play in the open class (provided your comfortable playing some fast shooting games with lots of paint flying around), If you are new to the game playing in the lower "owner class" with field paint provides a slightly less intense game experience suitable for greener players. The field is kept pretty clean and bunkers have been in different locations the two times i've been there which is nice for a change (they even have moved them mid way thru my play session to change things up a bit both times.
My first time playing here i had a great time, 2nd time around i ran into a few poor sports. One that had a temper tantrum that i shot him at the same time as another player landing a hit as he thru up his arm, sorry buddy but i can't stop a shot thats in mid flight, instead of walking off the field he stood up walked around so he had a clear shot on me and fired 3 rounds into my facemask (BOOOO!) then walked around behind the netting to hide hahaha. The other issue i had was with a player shooting hot, i ran thru a doorway in a bunker and got lit up by what felt like ball bearings from about 10ft away, actually left a cut on my head and leg. I approached the player about him possibly shooting hot, after getting no acceptable response from that guy about going to the crono i spoke to a Staff member and too the fields credit they made him Chrono in and sure enough he was shooting 305fps. I think they kicked him off the field for the night because i never saw him again. Good Show Next Paintball. Lets keep the game friendly everyone, we all want to be competitive but were all here for a good time also.
In both my outings i've run across a few cool players to chit chat with in the staging area and almost all of the players are friendly, call hits when there hit and play some good paintball forcing you to play well also. This is a good field to go to, and is currently my field of choice.
Take the 401, and get off at Whites Rd. Turn left when you get to the end of the street. Go two or so block, and turn left into a parking lot. It's in the same parking lot as National Sports
This is an excellent field for anyone. Young, old, birthday parties, ANYTHING. They always change the setup of the field every month i think. They have very friendly staff, who are willing to help if you ever have a problem. People who own guns are aloud to bring your own paint, but the entry price is somewhere around $30, and they have to be white or yellow filled. Also. the filling can't be thick. This is a great field though, and i will recommend it to anyone.
none, usually play outlaw, but playing in the cold sucks
Directions to the Field:
get off the 401 at whites road and go a block west. its in the same parking lot as national sports
Great clean place to play at, very safety oriented, great staff, great field
field paint is pricey though, $150/case on non half price days and for non members
so byop is the way to go for owners
The chrono is available for tuning anytime you want and field speed limit is 250 fps
there is a proshop in the same building that deals primarily with Spyder, Smart Parts, Angel and tippmann paintball guns
they are open so far as i know from 12-12 every day so lots of time to play
their field paint is draxxus white box (coloured silver) so its pretty o-kay
the rental markers are **98 customs** they keep in good condition
good field to go to
**they now use spyder xtras as a base package but you can upgrade to a MR series if you want.

This is a great field, for newbies and older players alike. Half price days are on tuesday and wednesday. To make this affordable, go with three friends on a half price day (you end up paying something around $30 for a great time) Pay for your rental/entry then split a case of paint. Pizza and burger king are just across the street and vending machines in the player's area.
You can sign up for three different classes:
Update: Feb 03/07
As the website says, you can upgrade your rental marker but this is NO LONGER TRUE. They did used to rent out Angels, but due to people disrespecting the rental gear they obviously had to stop. They got new Tippmann 98s about 2 weeks ago.
Renter - you rent all the gear (oh really?)
Owner - you have your own gun. (Renters and owner can ONLY use paint that has been purchased over their counter)
Open-class - BYOP etc.
Games usually go Renters+Owners (They split renters and renters+owners up if there's lots of people) then open-class.
Classes can "challenge" the class ahead of them, but not below them.
Safety: The safety is great. Refs ALWAYS stress that you have your barrel condom on when you're not playing, and yell at you for a while if you take off your mask on the field.
Field: The field is also great. They clear out the paintballs every few hours, so it's extremely clean. They change up their bunker arrangements every few days and claim to have over 100 different bunkers.
Staff: The staff are really friendly (unless you do something to tick them off that is)
Refs: The refs are quite nice. If you decide to break the rules, there will be negative concequences. They usually call hits, but cna miss a few here and there.
Players: The majority of players there are average. Most of the open-class players are quite good. (You'll see tons of Angels and DM6's)
Play with the owners and renters, and you'll see mostly tippmanns and spyders.
Paint: The paint isn't all that great. Pretty expensive for the grade but it's worth the price to play at the field. One ball didn't break after a 5 or so foot drop onto a concrete floor. After that, I had to hit the ball twice with my fist for it to break.
Air: 3.5-12 oz CO2 = $4
13oz+ = $6
Compressed = $1 per 1000 psi
Proshop: The proshop is PPP (Premium Paintball Products). Uhh a bit expensive, and a bit slow processing your purchase...Paint is within reason.
Bathrooms: Very clean. The only problem is the floors. After playing a game, stepping up to a urinal to do your business isn't the easiest thing...You end up sliding around on the floors.
Overall: I suggest playing here. This is probably the best place around, and can be quite fair if you invest in a membership ($200. 50% off paint, free entry, free compressed fills)

Sgt. Splatters (Dirty, dark, sand is gross to play in, refs just don't care)
Area 51 (Dirty, field isn't very well laid out, gravel sucks to play in - slippery and mucky, speedball field never re-opened)
These guys are very good with safety. The refs always stand by the entrance to ensure that people have their barrel bags on as they exit the field, and masks on when they enter. They won't hesitate to warn people about mask safety. The refs also give advice to new players regarding field safety. One of them gave my friend advice on how to get off the field after being called out, so as not to get in the line of fire (I know, it's a small point, but I'm glad to see they pay attention to details like that. They also do periodic chrono checks to see if people are shooting within the 250 FPS limit.
One thing that may be improved is the amount of leftover balls on the ground. Sometimes there are a lot left over from previous games throughout the day, and they can be slippery. Another area of concern are the stairs leading to the observation deck. After playing a few games and having paint on your soles, the stairs just might get a little slippery. Not good, especially for those kids weighed down by their 4+3 pod packs full of paint.
Amazing, clean field, which is very big. They've got high ceilings and very good lighting. They frequently change the layout of the air bunkers, which makes for more varied gameplay. The floors are covered in astroturf of some sort, which is great to slide on. The field itself is usually laid out fairly symmetrically, so neither side has much of an advantage.
Staging Area/Observation deck
The staging area is also very clean and bright. They've got a few snack machines, although admittedly, I haven't bothered checking to see how stocked they are. There's also a couple arcade games, but I doubt people bother to play them. There are a decent amount of tables downstairs, although it can get pretty full when it's half off days.
The upstairs observation area is great, providing a good view of the entire field - perfect for those parents who want to watch their little Johnny play. They can probably put a few more tables upstairs though, especially on Tuesdays and Wednesdays, as sometimes there are just way too many people having to share tables.
They're relatively high, but not by that much. $30 for a renter gives you a Tippman 98C, JT mask, HPA tank, hopper, 100 balls, and unlimited air fills. You can also upgrade the barrel, or upgrade to an Angel for an extra 20 bucks (I think). Owners pay $10 for admission, and BYOP is $25, I believe.
Memberships cost $200, and gives you a year of free admission and air, 50% off paintballs anyday (but does not add on during half price days), and $10 admission for BYOP.
Air isn't free, and will cost you $1 per 1000 PSI or $10 for unlimited fills. There are also differing prices for CO2 tanks - don't bring a 14oz CO2 tank, as you'll end up spending just as much as you would for a 20 oz tank to fill.
Velocity limit is set at 250 fps, basically similar to the other places I've played at. They only allow white and yellow fill. I've actually seen them kick out a guy shooting pink paint. Also, they don't allow renters to use any other balls except ones sold at Next.
Players are divided into 3 groups - Renters, Owners, and Open Class. Open Class people are basically those who BYOP. A member of a group can always step up to the higher classes if they wish, but no one can go to lower classes. This way, renters aren't forced to go up against people shooting much better guns if they don't want to.
Premium Paintball Products is a great shop. They seem well stocked with everything ranging from scenario guns to low and high end speedball markers. The people at the proshop are very knowledgeable and know their stuff well. Prices are a tad bit high compared to some other shops in the GTA, but they're not unreasonable. Their website needs a lot of work though.
The staff at Next are top notch, very friendly, and very helpful. It's a family owned business, so most of the employees actually care about the place and its customers. The staff treat players well, and won't berate or look down upon those who are new to paintball
This field has been one of the best things to happen to paintball in the GTA. It's a great field for noobs and veterans alike, as it provides the quality of a top notch speedball field, while also being friendly to newcomers of the sport. If you haven't already experienced what Next has to offer, you're definitely missing out!

Iv only been playing for a year but out of all the fields iv been to this is by far the best. the pro-shop is stacked and the people are all kind and helpful. reffing is good the only bad thing is the rotations because sometimes they have parties and it just takes too long for the open class to get a game and sadly our games only last 3 or less min. all in all a great field excellent service and affordable if u get a membership...which i recommend. if ur into speedball or want to be this is the place to go you wont be disappointed at all.
SOF- unorganized, unsafe, air and field is never setup
DF-dark ,dirty, stuff gets stolen there alot
EB-Clean, bright, expensive, small field
Vaughan- Good outdoor field
Directions to the Field:
