Living In Lynchburg,VA next year need some PB help.

Im attending Lynchburg College next year and out of a lack of effort didnt look into if they have a paintball team. They do not, awesome right???! no not awesome. I use to play D3 paintball but not play D5/D4 thank to money situations last year. I have already decided i will not give this sport up again i love it too much. So is there any good places to play and meet a new team down there or any in Lynchburg that travel on weekend to play? Or am i royaly screwed as soon as fall semester rolls around? Any help would be appreciated guys Thanks.

Liberty University has a NCPA team and 2 turf xball fields. We host local tournaments and also are going to start allowing other teams to practice on the fields. I can help you with starting a LC team or make connections to local teams. The paintball scene in Lynchburg isn't dead, but could use some more life in it.

You're not SOL, but you're close to it. The closest public fields are going to be WarPlay Paintball in Culpepper(2.5hrs), Skyline Paintball in Strausburg(2.5hrs), Big Pearl in Glasgow(45mins), PBC Greensboro NC(1.5hrs), All American Paintball in Danville(if they're still open - 1hr). LU is a nice environment and field, but they're not open to the public other than the monthly 3-man events. If they would ever start hosting a regular "open-day" or "walk-on" play, it would be a nice boost for the paintball scene in the area.

As it is now, your best bet to play competitively with lots of people is going to be PBC Greensboro NC. The drive isn't as bad as you think, especially if you get 1 or 2 others to tag along.

Very true. We are working on the whole "open day" thing... Right now I can have teams practice at our field, but no walk-ons. But stay tuned.

I don't know how fast you drive, but for normal people Pevs is 3-4 hours away from Lynchburg.

I'm going to be a senior at Lynchburg this year , but having a paintball gun on campus is prohibited and you will get expelled if caught. Just be very careful if you bring your gear.

You may want to check with your college to see if you can store your paintball equipment with the university police department. Some colleges that prohibit items such as guns and paintball markers on campus will allow you access to them through the university police.

KPS Paintball is in Midlothian, (just south of Richmond, 2 hours). Great teams and very competitive. Typically every other Sunday is team day practice so always good practice. Liberty would be awesome as close for you but come up to KPS for some good paintball

Big Pearl Paintball is all woodsball at the Glasgow field, however we just recently started a Speed Ball field in Amherst which is only a 15 min drive from Lynchburg College. I will let you know that we are just in our beginner stages of field set up. I currently own the property the speed ball field is on and will soon be moving to California with the Navy. Our future at this location is uncertain but Big Pearl Speed Ball is here to stay. We are scouting a better location in the bedford area to help spark a closer drive from our Roanoke players. Check out our website at www.bigpearlpaintball.com and of course your welcome to hit me up. Our store is in Madison Heights and the number is 434 258-1200 Jeremiah is the owner.
