I've been playing at CRU since summer 2011. I'm a woodsball/scenario player mostly, but slowly moving into pump tourney ball. CRU has been a great place for me to make the slow transition.

Customer Service: Chris (owner) and the rest of the crew are great. They're friendly, knowledgeable, helpful, and always looking out for the players. If you have any questions about your gear or want to buy or order something, they're happy to help. They do their best to keep all their players happy; from the seasoned tourney players to the walk-on rental players to the first timers.

Quality of fields: There are currently two indoor fields. One is tourney and one is a rec field with air bunkers, plastic pallets, and wooden bunkers. They're both regularly cleaned of paint and the bunkers are cleaned pretty often, too. Great lighting on the tourney field and decent lighting on the rec field. There is an outdoor woods field, but it's kind of lacking. There is supposed to be a tourney field, hyperball field, and improvements to the woods field coming this summer though.

Experience: I've only ran into a couple try-hards at CRU... For the most part all the players are good to go or at least keep to themselves. You won't have any problem finding a group to play with during open play and I can't really recall any times that there have been any major blow-ups at all. Like I said, I'm new to tourney style ball and everyone has been great. It's a great place to bring first timers or veterans.

Value: Everything is really competitively priced. They shoot KEE paint FPO and Premium goes for right around $60/case I think... Great prices on markers with a great selection as well as plenty of used markers for sale. CRU has some of the better prices in Michigan that I've seen.

All in all, this is my favorite Michigan field. I'm looking forward to the outdoor fields coming along, but until then, I'm content to play pump rec ball on the indoor and get my feet wet in some tourney style play too!

I love this field and Chris as always been very welcoming to me when I can get up there. I've been here for a few times playing and tournaments. It can get a little slippery inside but that's paintball. It was a bit cold inside this past winter but it's Michigan and I don't fault the field. Great place and I hope you check them out.

Although my eyes are crap and can't see as well on the 2 indoor fields, this shouldn't be a deciding factor since I can easily go and play on their outdoor field. Currently there is 3 fields, 2 indoor and 1 outdoor. There is another outdoor field that is nearly complete, and it's an airball/speedball field (omg I cant wait)

I drive an hour to this field from Ypsilanti, despite there being closer fields like Futureball, Action Paintball, and Hell Survivors. If that doesn't give you an indication of the friendly, professional, and worthy field environment, then I'm not sure what will. Once their outdoor airball field is opened, I will have no reason to save myself the drive and go to any other field.

This is my new favorite field. I've been to many fields over the years, but my preference is speed ball on an airball field, which apparently is becoming increasingly difficult to find in Michigan. Thanks for the friendly and positive environment, paintball wouldn't still be around if it weren't for businesses like this!

For the record, after speaking to Futureball and Action Paintball about local fields in the area, they BOTH trash talked each other and THEN proceeded trash talking CRU Paintball when I mentioned them
Wow, all I have to say is I now have a new low for professionalism.

CRU paintball stands on top for being professional and modest about their own field, but most importantly, they... DONT BASH OTHER FIELDS I mentioned to CRU what the other fields said, but their STILL held their composure and didn't even make a single negative remark

Futureball and Action Paintball, I hope you learn a thing or two from CRU about how to further the sport by keeping things positive, instead of making yourself into an egocentric, conceited, pompous sounding business, who will always be lacking my respect. Don't think your actions have gone unnoticed, because they certainly were unwarranted. All I did was mention the other field, and Futureball/Action PB both jumped all over the opportunity to discredit another business in the area.
