I stopped by this field a twice. One time it was completely empty at noon-time. The other (more recent) there was a full rotation of I'd say 20-30 people on the Air ball field. When there is a crowd I'd say the field is pretty top notch.

They just got new PSP bunkers which look great. The ground at the field is probably a 50/50 mix of dirt and grass patches. There can be some muddy spots on the far side which collect water and can be a slip hazard off the break. In terms of actual facilities. There is a trailer/main building for where you pay for paint or pick up rental gear. I don't think they have gear for sale from inside. Portapotty is around the backside of the trailer and the air fill station is on the side facing the fields.

Staff on the field is good when they are not busy running the woodsball field for the open play people. Both the owner and the ref who is their regularly have lots of tourney experience. And of course more experienced players waiting for a match on the side sometimes pitch in with reffing a game. Sometimes the rotations get a little slow especially towards the afternoon when the paint starts to dry and people start getting tired.

This field is strictly field paint only. They usually sell Empire brand paintballs the "custom blend" boxes for about $50-55/case. I'd say they are about mid quality but definitely harder shells. It was a warmer day and there were lots of bounces. Entry and air is $25, however they sometimes have a VIP deal which is around $50 a month and depending on the owner's mood gets you discounted paint or some other stuff. If you are a regular than you might want to consider it.

Competition wise Sunday is probably the day to go. The home team is there as well as a few other local groups. Usually in the D4/D5 range. Some people of course have higher level experience and show up as well. Towards the end of the day they ran drills with the people left on the field with paint. Good practice and cool down for the day.

This field is located very centrally in Houston. Not far from the major shopping area Galleria and easily accessible from the highway. If you are living inside Houston (inside 610 loop) this probably is very close to you.

Overall I give this place 4/5 stars. Location is what really improves its value to me at least. If you are living in Houston, this is probably the easiest field to get to that has good competition without having to drive more than 45 minutes.

When your looking at a paintball field, there are a couple of things you should keep in mind. Firstly, what does the field look like. I live about a 25 minute drive from here and the field doesn't look anywhere as neat as it should be. The airball field is not regulation size and usually most bunkers are not full on air, slouching or drooping to a side is a common theme here. The rec field isn't that bad bousting a couple broken boats, makeshift housing and some vehicles that offer great cover for the occasional camper. So basically, their website isn't an accurate representation and their airball field could use a lot of work. The turf that is used on their floor comes up occasionally in large strips and creates very uneven terrain there. They usually don't clean up the paintballs so you literally might dive into some and be called out, although I myself have never seen it happen it is possible here.

Next up, Prices

The prices at this field aren't bad in terms of paint being field paint only but the quality is the worst. Using GI sports field paintballs which I have used plenty of times. The paintballs are usually squishier than they should be and do not paint a target probably 1/3 of the time. Good for some practice, but for the price I could buy better paint for my buck somewhere else. They only run HPA tanks so no carbon dioxide here despite it being on their menu so to speak.
Paintball case of 2000 50$
entry 20$
air 15$
Lastly, How it is being here

When you arrive your transportation will be parked in a parking lot made of gravel and dirt surrounded by a fence. You'll get out and discover they have about 5 or 6 picnic tables that are usually surrounded by trash, even at the beginning of the day.( First one there, theres still trash) you'll have to leave your stuff at a table and pay in their trailer where the worker will use a tablet with a cashier system to ring up the prices for entry, air, and paintballs. You'll go back to your stuff and get prepped. Usually the refs here are very playful but a bit beyond what a rookie would like to handle. They usually have a very based opinion... let me explain

Iv'e been here plenty of times and every time from day one they have, during a recreational match, told me where the other players are. Now don't get me wrong at first it helped me win a match and since it was a ref I though Im not cheating. But after a while its just disrespectful to the other team. Maybe its because I wear a planet eclipse jersey and have a planet eclipse etha. Or maybe they just like having an unfair match, either way the refs aren't very cool this way. In addition, as I mentioned earlier a lot of rookies don't like the refs
My friend who will remain anonymous lets call him x

So me and x go to paintball. X has only played once before with me at another field. X pays his fees and we play the whole day. Throughout the day X gets out a lot, pretty average for a new player, but since everytime it hurt, the next time he went in he was a bit more cautious, not at all eager to experience the same pain over again. The refs really hate slowpaced matches and will start yelling at both players to run up or make a move. This might sound ecouraging to some but X would respond something like I don't want to and the ref would literally respond aww cmon little paintballs hurting ya.

Now thats rude and mean. Don't get me wrong, Not something I would complain about but X got pissed off and didn't want to play much more, constantly complaining about the ref. X isn't the only one who doesn't like it either if thats what your thinking. Time and time again, the refs have discouraged players, probably without intent and these players just go to another paintball field.

If you think this review was helpful why not reply to it and ask me any questions I didn't cover or perhaps details about a certain instance within my times being to this field. Thanks and please help the paintball community expand by being an awesome player, no matter what type of paintball you play.

This field is about a mile from my apartment in a busy part of town. They have a full NXL field, pits, and turf. This field is also open every day and has lights to play at night. They change the field layout every month and it's based on what the players want, not what they decide. Field paint only, but it's quality paint at a reasonable price.
