This happened in 2009 but I felt the need to write this after beating 280's team in a tourney today lol.

My friend and I just started out in speedball with low-end speed guns at the time. (Dynasty Shocker-Etek1) We get there and not a sole in sight besides 2 refs. They obviously took our money for a field fee instead of offering to hold off unless people don't show. Bored and pissed 25 mins of doing nothing, My friend and I 1v1. Right off the break I run right side and try to slow stop into a bunker. I slide about 5 feet and fall right on my elbow outside of the playing field onto TILE. This field is absolute **** when it comes to running. So slippery and no ****s given on attempting a clean.

Ok so that was already enough to never want to come back again. But this next part is why ill never go back. The 2 refs by now know we are extremely new to speedball and have seen what we've shot. They offer to 2v2 us for "fun". It was a cool gesture at first. Before we started I approached them saying "ok were kinda new so take that as you will."
"O you have nothing to worry about were no pros".
They didnt even chrono their guns. Off the break the ref hits me 4 times when i ran back left. I heard a big POP on my belt and thought WTF was that? They were shooting sooo ****ing hott he shot a HOLE in my pod from base to base. I could not even believe how hot of a shot that could even be to achieve this 40-50 yards away. Along with the pod I was lit up on the chest. But thats part of the game didnt care.

I talked to a jaegers guy the other day and he put it best. If/When refs play. They dont play/their targets for the customers. Thats well put and I dont mind them going at us but how hot they were shooting and how serious they went at a few newbies was ridiculous. Jaegers now has my money and service. 280 can rot in the bowling alley.

Cons: Not updated bunkers, not a usual high turn out
I've played at the field numerous times, and was once sponsored by them when Tremor was around.

Since I started playing here and now, there have been quite a few improvements. The turfs is 20x better than the carpet. A LOT better traction.

Ryan has since added some more staff members, though how involved the reffing is is iffy. But most the regulars know eachother and we honor the honor system. There's no point in cheating at practice, unless you're that low.

And to blasting new comers, it doesn't happen. I was just there the past weekend and we didn't even play a single game with them. Hell, we even took our guns off ramping to semi to cater to some of the not-so-experienced/not newcomers.

If you're looking for a fun time, I'd recommend 280. Team practices are also held time to time, but the usual turn out is pretty limited.

280 is a great indoor field in the Grandview area. Having free entry before noon on sundays is a definite plus. Although the paint is field paint only it isn't priced too bad. I recently started going here and love it because I can play over the winter now.

One of the only options around here except for Jeagers. The prices are decent used to $55 a case but they bumped it up to $65 because they're adding a outdoor speedball field and another outdoor recball field. No field fee if you have gear. Paint is okay. Saturdays are more for the beginners and normally beginners play on the outdoor field which is a great field with a variety of bunkers. The turf on the indoor field is nice and you can slide good. Paint is alright not great for the value though it's gi sportz "field paint". Indoor lighting is good. If you live in the Kansas City area it's by far the best field. So go here.

280 Paintball This field is great, especially for those cold winter months. They have a full 5 man airball field that is always set up. The prices are competitive and the service and competition is always great.
