Evaluating your field

So I am wondering if people look at their fields as visits per season or month or annual.
Or if youlook at average ticket per visit or number of booked large groups etc.

I am very interested to see similiarities between successful fields such as avg net profit per visit, if anyone feels like sharing.

Im guessing $35 entry air and rental and another 45 on paint is a gross of 80 per visit that i am shooting for. of course net would be much lower after cogs etc.

can anyone share some of that info

Our average customer doesn't spend $80. It's more like $60. Renters spend a little more on average, gear owners a little less. I'd be surprised if the average is $80 at many fields, but I'd like to be wrong in this case.

As far as your other questions, what interests me is the number of people we get annually and the average income/player.

What I would be interested to know is, if, like us, other field owners have noticed that their income has not increased much over the last few years (or possibly even gone down), but expenses seem to keep going up. That money has to come from somewhere (our pockets).

Wouldn't a topic like this be better off in the private owners area??

i didnt know there was a private owners area and if there is i dont think i have access

Most people here rent and pay about $35 for entry air and rental
Im not sure how much paint avg players use one field told me they tell players 500-700 for the day then usually sell them a case...
Case here is pretty consistently $65 so that would be $100 but I am guessing half case is more the average which is in line with your experience of ~~$60 spent, although as a player i count on spending almost ten more bucks on food and drinks all day

Send a PM to one of the mods. You have to be a field or store owner though, complete with business license and such.
