PBC is the biggest field in the area, Last time I played there they had 1 airball, 2 hyperball, 1 xball, 3 woodsball, and a mounds field. Their prices are QUITE expensive and their staff is hit or miss, I've been there on days that the refs never chronoed a single person, never did paint checks, and only ran about 2 games an hour, other days they have been top notch. The fields are also hit or miss, sometimes the airball and Xball fields are half deflated, USUALLY they are well maintained. Main problem with the field is atmosphere, I've never met more whiny, bratty players than are sometimes at PBC. I've seen new players get bunkered and bonus balled like crazy by the "experienced" players there. Also seen a group of kids with DM's and EGO's pick on a newer player to the point that he called his mom and left because he had an Ion. If you can deal with some real jerks (cause they may be there) than PBC is a great field over all, but don't be surprised if the atmosphere is less than inviting. If you are a newer player I would suggest going on saturdays, you will usually not be the only beginner, and the more experienced casual players will be more likely to help you out than the tournament wannabe's that can sometimes show up on sundays.
after you get off the interstate go right, go to the light take a left down the road a little ways right after the school
Its a good field. they have 3 woods xball an airball 2 pipes and a dirt mounds field. refs are decent, its 12$ admission 12$ for all day air co2 fills are 5$ they have rentals (masks guns ect). field paint only. not a proshop on the premisis, food dominos pizza chips vending machies (drinks). there only open on the weekends,no gun techs. shelterd staging areas.
Great field, great refs and a great paintballing atmosphere. They brought out air for filling at Summer Xball. It was really a great turf field. The prices are higher than, say, Dickens, but you get what you pay for. I know I will return for 3man series events, and I can't wait because this field is the bomb.
-4/11/09: CFOA 3 man: I loved it man! The Field is great, the paint is great, and I was lovin it. The Field owner is the bomb, after we finished the tourny, he lets us go play recball for free.

Bad @$$ Field. Must go. Take $$$$ and lots. they are pretty pricey but worth it. Refs are A+ everything is top notch. Must go. I had some little kid though maybe 12 tring to get me to trade my Angel A1 for a DM6. I told the dumb "blank" no but he wouldnt leave me alone. this kid bugged everyone!
i love pbc. for starters the employees are awesome they will help you with anyhting. then u have the fields. they have 2 x ball fields , a regular speed ball field, 2 pipes fields, a mounds field and like 3 woods fields.the people that play there are aewsome too, the first time i played there everyone was cool and i met alot of great players that now i play with. they arent too expensive and the paint is pretty good as well, they have food and drinks, they also have an ok bathroom with a HEATER lol for when its cold outside lol.. and even the open day crowd is mor ompetetive than the kids ive been playing at my field so its a great place over all... give it a 9 out of 10
Fields- At first I only saw a speedball field and two pipe fields but then my friend pointed out the other two fields that are across the driveway and the three woods courses. The Xball field was rather nice but looked a little run down from the previous four days of rain. A ref told us they're going to be getting it turfed and adding new bunkers so they can get some CFOA and PSP games going there.The dirt mounds were turned into almost solid mud so we only played that field twice but i'm sure if it was dry it would have been a good one. We only play two of the wood courses, but I mean they're woods...not alot to say there. the speedball was nicely set up but the half the bunkers were deflated. safety All day I only saw three people hit the chronograph before playing other than my friends and I. The refs were pretty strict about "masks down, barrel sleeves on" when walking on or off the fields, but that's the extent of what they did. paint PBC is Field paint only, their field paint is a neat orange shell/orange fill with the PBC logo printed on the shell made by Pro-caps, it's a little pricey at 64.85 a case, but it's good, accurate paint that you're paying for. Only compliant is that it stained the lenses on my goggles. overall I give PBC a 9, a 9.5 if I could and I'm planning on going back
All American, its okay compared to pbc, but it only has 1 airball course, and 1 hyper ball course. It is about the same amount of money also. That sucks!!!! PBC has MUCH better fields, and equipment.
Directions to the Field:
Its close to the store(sort of)
I went here with my two friends to practice for a tournament. It was very fun. The fields are great, the equipment is good, and the refs are a little lazy. It gives u a lot more oppurtunities to kill noobs than any other field. Overall , it was awesome, the play was good, and i will definitely go back. I like it, but it really deserves a 9 because of the lazy refs and the fields that arent maintaind.
Haven't played any but couldn't imagine anything being better.
Those that don't consider themselves advanced players may want to ignore this post.
I played this field in the middle of a road trip and absolutly had a blast. I had contacted some of the regulars there about the best time for me to show up. I showed up on sunday for the advanced group and was not dissapointed at all.
My first thought as I pulled in was that they had gone to alot of trouble to set up very nice fields with nets seperating all of them. I then noticed that all the fields were covered with very fine gravel which I didn't think very highly of. The day kind of started off slow because the reffing there is alittle on the relaxed side and most of the players were taking their time getting ready. When I say on the relaxed side what I really mean is that all the ref really does is start the games, oh well, what can you expect from unpaid volunteers. The gravel proved not to be a problem somehow, I wear redz pants and they held up just fine except for the raspberry I got on my hip. I do suggest wearing gloves though, I did a handplant sliding into a snake and it kinda got cut up but I was having enough fun there that I didn't care. The gravel is fine enough that you don't need to worry about your knees when kneeling. I think the rules are that as soon as you step into the netted area you have mask down, this rule was ignored alot and I would have preffered to see it enforced more. I am a person that values my eyesight so I followed the rule, it's kinda up to you. They also provide paper towels and a water bottle for mask cleaning, it's do it yourself but it's definitly clean and effective.
They had two full size X ball fields set up and they were awesome to play They had a couple Hyperball fields and we only played one of them, it was fun and I wasn't dissapointed becuase the airball fields were good. I did get to play with one Femme Fatale and one guy from Trauma which was very cool. I highly recommend playing here, the competition was fun and the feilds were great. It is field paint only but the stuff they were selling was great paint, it was customized Draxxus and shot straight and broke easy and bright. If you do go just remember that you may have to "convince" someone that they're out if you know what I'm saying, but I loved it anyway.
This place was my first a long time ago since then i have been all over the east coast and played and nothing has come close to pbc every field i play at now i compare it to pbc and it just never comes close staff is awsome my best friend was on a team there so i reffed and played with them and i made more friends then i dont know what i rate this place a 10 and im pissed that im not close to it anymore i joined the air force and now im like 4 hours away i cant wait to see the new charlotte field
