Paintball Arkansas - PBA is more geared to the experienced player, their speedball fields are mostly dirt/rocks. Refs are not as strict. PBA is a great place to play though, their woods fields are some of the best around.
T2 Paintball is a field that is geared primarily towards recballers and first time players. Lets just get it out in the open and state the facts:
If you enjoy: bunkering people, over shooting, shooting on full auto, shooting people in the head, arguing with refs, being a jerk, making other players have a bad time etc......then T2 is NOT the place for you!
If you enjoy a great time, laid back play style, great refs (usually 2 per group/field), not being bunkered, a place where you could bring your wife, kids, co-workers and not have to worry about some 13 year old ruining the day, then T2 IS the place for you.
Mick the owner runs a VERY tight ship and he doesn't put up with any crap. His field and play style he encourges is geared towards the first timer, birthday party, church group, rec baller. At T2 you will shoot semi only, you will not shoot someone closer than 20' (if at all possible), you will shoot 3 shots and take a break, if you screw up, the refs will let you know, but they are very cool about it. If you continue to break the rules you will be asked to leave.
T2 is one of the funest, most relaxed and enjoyable fields I have ever played at. I would and will gladly bring my 10 year old out to play when he turns 10 and know that his first paintball experience will be a great one thanks to Mick and his refs.
If you enjoy more aggressive play, ramping and bunkering, then Mick will always say you have two choices: go somewhere else, or come out on Saturday am and play with the local team that practices every Saturday morning.
Other items of note: 4k psi fills, FPO (was JT Fluid, Diablo Heat right now for winter - so pretty decent field paint). Small proshop that caters to woods ballers and first timers. The markers and gear they sell there are always high quality, low cost items. Mick refuses to sell crap, and the man can fix pretty much anything......just don't expect to bring in your internet purchase and expect it to be fixed for free and not get an earfull from Mick about it! :) Rental gear is adequate, clean and well maintained.
There are 2 small speedball fields up close to the pro shop, 4 woods fields that are all within a few hundred yards of the proshop/tables. All tables are covered, but bring your own chair. The two fields up close have an elevated viewing stand that is great for non-players to watch from.
T2 runs 2 "Big Games" every year that draw 150 people and are great fun.
So if you are looking for a great place to play paintball in the Little Rock area, T2 is definately my first choice for the recballer/birthday/church/work/new player! You WILL have a great time there guarenteed!
If you want the tourney style play, then come out at 8am on Sturdays and play with the team, then hang around for some fun with the recballers.
