I love Flagswipe.
The Field is great, the employees are amazing. Great help in the pro shop, and down on the field.
The games are great, and well run, and safe.
I honestly haven't played anywhere else, but I've seen other fields, and few compare. Flagswipe does have by far the best pro shop I've ever seen at a field.
Flagswipe Outdoor- Awsome!
Adreniline "Reball Field" -Not as fun.
Adreniline Outdoor - Doesn't compare to Flagswipe
Directions to the Field:
See their site: www.flagswipepaintball.com
Safety: If anything, the Staff at this field make things overly safe but for new players, that is always better. Safety equipment is a must, and the Staff are VERY picky about the safety rules.
Fields: Indoor - Dedicated to tornoment players- and its awsome. I also see a lot of new players having a blast on it too.
Outdoor: This is where everyone started, and it is amazing.
For the new player, it is a one-in-a-lifetime experience.
Their Biggames/Scenarios are well put together, and get a good turn out.
Hours Of Operation: 24/7 as long as you have a group to play with.
Normal business hours seem to fit well with everyone's schedule; even if you go to school, or are a full time worker.
Prices: Fair. A little lower than other fields in the area.
Rules: They make the rules to keep the customers safe. They are strict on them, but its for a good reason. I have no complaints about any of the rules.
Services: Full Proshop attached to the indoor field. They have a couple of airsmiths, and pro gun techs on staff that can fix your gun without any problems. They are dealers for many paintball companys- and also sell their own line of paint grenades.
Proshop: See above.
Staff: Great bunch of people, Well trained, Awsome to talk to.
I have seen complaints in the past, but not many for the current regular people that work there.
Refs: Well trained, seem to know what theyre doing.
Players: Indoor: Tournoment players. There are certain days on the field that it gets very competitive, otherwise its a bunch of fun.
Outdoor: Dedicated to the newer player, but the verterans are all there too!
Facilities: Washrooms, Pop Machines, Slushee Machines, Candy Machine, and they used to have a arcade machine. They also have a birthday room for parties that come to play, or just people who want to watch can go up and see the field from the top.
Food: They have a deal set up with a local pizza company to get cheaper prices, and the pizza is good. Candy/Pop/Sportsdrinks/Slushees are for sale.
Hotdogs/Hamburgers at the outdoor. and candy.
What else can I say? The indoor field is always clean since they replaced it in March.
The new turf gets cleaned once/month so im told. The bunkers get cleaned after every group, and the refs also shovel off all the paintballs/ paint shells that were left from the game.
Overall, I give the field a 10/10.
I recomend this field.

London paintball (outdoor) and i enjoy indoor paintball more but flagswipe was horrible
I have played in many different types of fields, indoor, outdoor, and some recballing in the woods, but out of all of them, flagswipe was the worst indoor field i have played on. It was setup up nice and had a good proshop, but the staff was horrible and didnt help me with any of my problems(they gave me the old"i will be right with you in a moment" and take off) and they didnt even pay attention to things. I could have walked out of there with the tank they gave me and they wouldnt have noticed untill i was 2 hours away.
Not only this but they made us were these friggin bulky tarp vest things that stuck out everywhere and flapped up into your face when you ran.
I give this field a 4 out of 10 for having a nice setup, good location and good proshop, but the service i recived from the place was horrible and i just didnt overall enoy the experience.
Wasga beach -much better than flagswipe (at least the indoor)
Flagswipe paintball (Indoor) receives a 4/10. The astroturf is slipperyer than a a hockey rink. It is terible. The ref when he payed attention was good. The problem was he never payed any attention. The proshop was very well stocked. The games he had us play were good for the most part. The bunkers were good. The ref makes u wear these stupid vest that not only are uncomfertable but often times deflected shots.
Flagswipe is the best field ever, i never went to the old one though because it moved just before i started playing. The staff is great, and very helpful (every one of them), they also have a retail store upstairs. The prices are great. The P.E.T.S. tournies that they have there are amazing. You just can't complain
Flagswipe is the best!
i play in the rookie division for the P.E.T.S series and most of the events are at flagswipe indoor and i must say that this is one of the best indoor fields i have been to...the staff is very friendly, the staging area is pretty big, turf is a lil slippery but you get used to it after a few games, pro shop is very nice it has lots to choose from, the reffing is pretty good there all though i did see some obvious hits followed by the wiping but it was rare to see that happen...all and all its a great field to play at
Adrenaline Paintball, cant compare with the field.
- The floor is awesome, you can slide really well, doesn't absorb paint, as such never becomes slippery.
- The bunkers are your standard X-Ball bunkers, as such they are nice, well weighted.
- The set-up is great, ever changing they change it to suit the players abilities.
- Clean, with the mesh walls, inflated bunkers, non slip floor and constant cleaning it is generally nice and clean.
- Good for spectators, mesh walls and observation/staging area.
- Great store, good selection, nice lay-out.
- You need to catch the staff on a good day, otherwise they treat you with very little respect. On those days the only way to be treated with respect is to throw money at them. Its unfortunate but it happens.
It would receive a 10 for field and store, however only receives an 8 when staff are included.

" After years of playing Pro and being able to travel around the world I have been able to see many facilities, the good and the bad. From Michigan to Los Angeles to the rolling countryside of Toulouse France and the indescribable beauty of Sweden. I have been able to compile the best from everywhere and I have brought it all here to London. Everything a Player wants, amazing field, soft on the knees and elbows, no air line ups, spacious staging, lots of light even a quick shower before the long trip home. Keep a player happy with these key ingredients and he will come back with two friends next time. Build it and they will come I heard once, well I built it the rest is up to the players, we will see if I'm right or not"
Flagswipe has undergone great change in its last three years. We have been busy expanding Paintball in all its forms including the ever-growing Tournament aspect. In order to gain public exposure Paintball must come out of the woods and into the limelight. Flagswipe showcased Paintball at its finest during the Great Canadian Outdoor Expo, to the delight of thousands of fans surrounding the Airball playing field.
To date no one in Ontario has truly catered to the Tournament player, well that's all about to change.
Flagswipe is proud to introduce its crowning achievement. Our new Sportsplex includes over 20000sq feet of the most sophisticated Paintball equipment available today. With the ability to play 10 man 7 man 5 man or two simultaneous 3 man or 4 man fields this is the largest Airball field available today. With our new Xball field played on the latest in sports flooring New Generation
