Tempe Paintball, alright if you're new to the sport, but be prepared to get covered in paint, from the walls, floors as well as other players
***THIS FIELD IS OPEN***
This field is probably one of the best fields ever constructed, great people, great prices, and good, fast paintball. for a while people said this field was closed, and they were, however they are now back in business. This was probably the best experience I've ever had paintballing.
Paintball Fees are:
$10.00 unlimited air/CO2
$10.00 field use
Equipment included, excluding paint. Paintballs can be purchased for $35 and up for a case of paint (2000/case). Or a bag of 500 from $10.00.
Their times are from 8am to 12pm
They have three fields: a speedball field set up using spools, a rec/speedball field, and a large, football field-size field using tires, plywood, spools, a fountain, and a boat
Spools field: Good, regulation-size field. Due to spools setup, no shots below the knees will be counted. They take the new players out here to show them the ropes. Fast-paced gameplay, and hardly any waiting, except the occasional 5-10 minute break.
Rec/Speedball Field: Also known as the Center field, this field is a traditional speedball setup using recball elements, gameplay is also fast paced, but wait time is a bit longer. Nothing special about this course, just hard, dirty paintball
RecBall Field: Also known as the main field, this field is larger, with teams of 20+ per game. wait time is the longest out of the three, but well worth it. Paintballs are always flying around in this course, and no bunker is safe. the last game of the day is held here, with teams ranging from 50 to 100. Its never crowded on this field, though.
A prayer is always said before starting, right after an oral explanation of the rules and Q&A session. They constantly have all three fields open, but usually close the spools field to make larger games towards the end. before the big ending game, they make Player of the Day awards. Oh almost forgot to mention, they have a chrono station open all day. THE LIMIT IS 285 FPS. Also, there are always at least three refs on any field at any given time, and the refs there are players, so they know what they are talking about and offer quality help, in other words, they know what they're doing.
*IMPORTANT NOTE* "Mask on" signs are posted around this area and strictly enforced
All in all, great field, great prices, great refs, and great safety. Well worth any effort spent getting there.

US 60 and Crismon. Go north on Crismon towards the 60 and right before the on-ramp there will be a road on your right. Go down that road and make a right when you see the parking lot.
The fields they offer are very organized and nothing is to crowded. It is open 9am till 1pm and it is 20 dollars all day for air and field fee. Thats incredible. You get new O-rings every time you fill up. It would be nice if they could get a food vender, so make sure you bring some sandwhiches. They offer a wreck ball field, a wreck/speed ball field, and in inflatable speed ball field. The only issue I had was you kind of get stuck on one field for the most part because of the timing of the matches. That only goes for me because I am impatient. As far as saftey goes i would have to disagree with the last review on Feb, 9th, because they excercise it on the field very much as well as off the field. One other thing that i would have to disagree on about the previous review is that the sportsman ship on the field was incredible and it is a very friendly enviorment. Every one is so nice about sharing paint. If you need some on the field you will most likely be able to stay in. On the subject of paint. The field is sponsered by The Front paintball supplies and they sell Origin paint for 30 dollars a crate. An the paint is outstanding. All in all i love this field. One last thing to say is that at the end of the day they usually do some kind of different style round. usually zombie(where 7 or so "zombies" vs the rest of the players at the field. Now when you are hit by a zombie you become one. This means you walk to the other side of the field and take the tape of your gun. and when you are hit as a zombie you are out. its a lot of fun.) The other game they do at the end is terminator style. (you are only out for 3 reasons: Out of paint, Out of air, or you wimp out and call your self out. You can be hit as many times as you want)
take the I-60 off ramp to Crismon road and take a left at the light
Across the street from the Jack in the Box the turrn in for the back parking lot is across from the Home Depot sign.
Big church so you cant miss it.
Open Saturdays from 8:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m.
$10 to get in and $10 for all day air
BYOP or purchase some from them
BARREL SOCKS OR PLUGS ARE A MUST HAVE FOR EVERY MARKER!
$15 to rent a Tippman 98, Mask, 20 oz and hopper
Bring water and tables and chairs. You can set these up in the parking lot
Nicest atmosphere, and i know alot of people have said this, but no one there is cocky.
Everyones nice and helps everyone. Prices are very fair and all workers there are volunteer from the church. You can bring your own paint or buy some there (which is pretty nice paint) and $10 more gets you all day refills on CO2 or HPA. There is a speedball field (pretty nice and big), rec-ball field (about half a football field with tires and wooden bunkers) and a "Center Field", which is in-between the speedball and rec-ball fields. The genre of play for the Center field more of a slow paced speedball game. About half the size of the rec-ball field, it offers tire and wooden plank bunkers with numbers displayed on the backs so its easier to make which bunker your pointing at clear. The center feild also has makeshift snake lines on both sides made out of tire stacks.
You must chrono before any games are started and usually going into a game they have you stop at a chrono and test. Teams are pretty evenly split but they cant tell everyones skill level so one team may have a disadvantage at a time. People there are very friendly and understanding, and everyone joins in a prayer before the first game starts.
There is no food to purchase there, but they do sell water and other various drinks (no energy drinks though). There is a Wal-Mart close by, only 2 minutes in a car if anything is needed. They have a "cool-off" station where you can rest in the shade and douse yourself in water. I never really checked this out but im sure its really nice and helps with the Arizona heat.
Rec-ball games last about 10 - 15 minutes and so do Center Field Games
No real time info on speedball
Important Note: Please help with this. Due to many people parking in the church parking lot, many paintballs are scattered about after being spilled by the uncautious player. They have had many complaints about this and have had warnings to be shutdown if this does not change. Please PICK UP YOUR BALLS!

Pretty easy to find. Right across the street from homedepot at the church in the back parking lot.
This field is by far the nicest one you'll see. To start off, its an extreamly nice community, I've never been around such a friendly atmosphere. Its rare to get talked downed on, the people that run it, Ty and Tiana along with the Front paintball store, are some of the nicest people you'll meet. As for the fields, they just purchased the '07 hunington beach nppl field, which works flawlessly.Speedball games will go from I think 3v3 to 7v7 and runs like any other speedgame. The center field(going from left to right here) is a nice combination of speedball and recball made up of tires and wood.Very easy to play, very easy to run. its a nice conversion for the rec-ballers who are looking to get into speed. Rec-ball, well what to say, its pretty much everything you'd expect in a rec field. its a medium sized field, nice and spaced out, but not to much to cause problems. The games will consist of from 20v20-55v55(which i doubt has happened, but you get it), games will run for about 15 minutes I belive. There is an absolute no bunkering rule, cant fire above 300, but they'll let it go if its like 302, 305. The best part is that saftey is strictly enforced here. Do not think you'll get out of the field without refs yelling at you for barrel socks. the field hours are 8am to 12 noon. the only cons I can say is that, you need to bring your own tables and chairs, and eat before you come hah. $20 for allday air and field. In Short: Come to the field and have a great time.
simple just find it on mapquest or look at website
This is a great field even though it might be a small one. It was my first time ever doing speedball there. I have never dont it before but was greeat. NO one is to cocky about saying they r better than others and r great people to play with. The best part is that if u bad mouth people or curse they either kick u out or not let u play there for a long time. They r safety freaks and that is a good thing meaning that they dont want any accidents to happen and no one getting seriously injured.
I live in tucson so i've played at both desert fox(6) and sudden impact(9).
This field is very interesting. they have both an airball and a recball field and are very strict about safety on both. further they do not allow bunkering on the rec field and it takes for ever to devide teams, which they do EVERY game. on the air field they play about 4 vs 4 and you can just play whenever you want, which is nice but the field is so small that you get shot instantly if you play with more than 5 vs 5. their prices are pretty cheap though($8 for field, $8 for air) and you can even bring your own paint, though they sell pretty good paint there. their also pretty loose with their chrono as long as you are under 300 they dont care.
