Well i go there every weekend, its a great place. All the staff are cool and after a few times of you going there they might remember you. They HAVE hired a ref that has NEVER played paintball, has no idea how to play, and is always a dick on the field. They do enforce some rules for rec ball like no bunkering, 15 ft surrender rule, and some other rules which are reasonable. Probably one of the most unnoticed rule is the blind man rule. So once upon a time i was playing with the rentals having a blast. I was about to move from the so called "snake" to the castle wall when 3-5 people just let loose on their triggers. I didn't notice that i ran right infront of the ref when they started shooting. the ref kinda spazzed out so his mask fell off. He dropped to the ground, covered his eyes and screamed blind man. I screamed with him hoping that the rentals had been listening to the ref prior to the game. I dropped my tippy, sprinted to the ref while getting shot all on my right side, and put his mask back on. He thanked me and later i ****ing screamed at the rentals for not listening. they all had red faces of embaressment even though half of them were ****ing koreans who didnt speak a lick of english. So there, scp is a great place. The fields are always packed on the weekends with helpful, nice, relatable, paintball players. Over all im in love with the fields.

Pros: Its close, really only option in the san jose area
Cons: its really the only option in the bay area
I used to go here all the time when it was part of the fairgrounds and they used to have livestock there, then it turned into a paintball field, it was pretty small, very small at first, but then years went by and i finally went with some friends and family because they had a groupon. the groupon kind of felt like a bit of a jip as my brother ended up paying like 70 for him and his son and he was self equipped. the staff is nice and friendly, the girls at sign in are nice, the dude who goes over the rules with you is cool and makes it not totally annoying to listen to rules, and the selection of fields is massave. unfortunatly we got stuck on field one basicly the entire time we were there from open to about 1ish, i dont know why they wouldnt let us move fields, we tried to leave and they made us come back, which sucks i really wanted to try any other field than the airball or speed ball whatever you call it. only in the afternoon we got moved to a side field, maybe 6? it was on the opposite end and was tiny, and i mean tiny, maybe 30 feet wide and about 200 feet long, it was tiny and had wood walls. we got one game in there and then i had to leave to go home to take care of other stuff, which i was bummed we played most of the time on one field and one game on a second.

Pros:
friendly staff
quick and friendly refill stations
tons of tables to rest and clean and reequip and regroup
friendly players were helpfull to new and rusty players

Cons:
Fields felt kind of small
no real matching on skills for even teams, some games were basicly kids/noobs vs pros
rental equipment kind of old and used (friends mask was basicly frosted)
no real other option besides los gatos woodsball

Santa Clara Paintball There are many fields to choose from as well as a sufficient amount of refs to run the fields accordingly.

I played at this place everytime I drove up to nor cal for classes. I really liked the customer service and how they offered games on thursday and friday nights. The refs were cool, the fields were good size, never a lack of ballers, and the price was fair compared to others places. I really enjoyed my time there and every chance I get to make it back, i will make it happen. Thanks SCP!

I've been setting up private parties here for my family and friends that are getting into the sport so far the facility is great. The staff is friendly and helpful and there are plenty of fields to play on. What I love about SCP is that they try their best to accommodate the fields we request. Our group usually wants to play on their airball fields and we usually get to switch off with their intermediate walk-ins.

Their only con is their fee for outside paint.
