Pros: Refs and Safety
Cons: Speedball Fields
I go to this field about once or twice a month. Its a great field with outstanding refs and safety is always a priority. There woodsball fields are great but there speedball fields are lacking. Most of the time 2 of the 4 speedball fields are down because there under water. The airball field is almost always under team practice so you barely get to use it. While the last one is a great, its been down for repair the last 2 or 3 times ive gone. But other then that, i love how the parking lot is right in the middle of all the action. They have a lot of options for paint from 35 to 65 dollar paint. Overall its a great field to spend a day to have some fun.

Pros: Economical, BYOP, Great Staff & Reffs, & Ray
Cons: Gets muddy, & has no indoor plumming
First let me start by saying that Fox is my home field. But not just because it is 30-40 minutes from my house but because it is the most ECONOMICAL field I have ever had the pleasure of playing at. Its biggest attributing reason being its BRING YOU OWN PAINT policy. Another reason would be its low cost admission fee of $30 for non-members and $15 for members. In addition, they have a very knowledgeable STAFF and great REFFS to manage speedball/woodsball games (I personally know a lot of the refs and they’re really great guys). Another thing worth mentioning is Fox’s field variety, it has something like 4 speedball fields, 1 hybrid field, and probably over 8 woodsball fields, and they’re always doing something new every year. And if they are any problems, Fox’s field manager RAY (PYROMAN) is a really easygoing guy and would probably help/work with you in anyway possible....

Cons: Holds Water
Fox was the first field I played paintball at and remains my go-to for recball. The staff and players are laid-back and helpful, which makes Fox very welcoming to new players.

The woods ball fields have different bunker setups and "obstacles" making each game slightly different; the field variation makes for a fun day of recall, even when playing the same format continuously. The village-a smaller field with houses and other structures-is the field that can't be missed.

The only con at Fox is its tendency to retain water. The fields can be get especially sloppy after a big rain. Unfortunately, this led to the washing out of the sod xball field that fox put it, but I've heard they have relocated their air ball setup.

In summary, if you're looking for a fun day of recall for a good price, check out Fox. More competitive players may be drawn to cox or lands for team practice, but the woods ball and scenarios at Fox are hard to beat.
