Wanna Play Paintball?

I have passed this place on Rt. 15 numerous times...just never stopped.

I skimmed through some of the reviews, not exactly up to date.

Looking for a general idea of what rec ball consists of, I like to play both air and woods. I have played at PAP for many years, just trying to find something different.

Thanks.

woodsball - be prepared to wait 20+ mins between games. also be ready for possible 15 v 15 matches, even on the small fields.

airball is not for walkons/rec play. you pretty much have to know someone/get permission, then blow up and clean up the bunkers

also, their speedball team just broke up, so i dunno how the upkeep on the airball field will even be...it wasnt mowed for at least a month the last time i was there

THIS is what I was looking for...thank you.

I am used to big games, is 15 vs 15 it?

That quite a let down for air ball. I take it its not worth stopping then?

typically all rec ball players play together. so if theres only 10 ppl you get 5v5, but if theres like 40 you can get 20v20 or more...

if you like recball and dont mind waiting, its not bad. the fields are usually in good shape. smells real bad when its wet tho and gets swampy. refs arent usually the best. mostly younger kids who work for store credit and are more intersted in their cell phone of bf/gf than the game...there are a few good ones tho.

Shame the speedball isn't as popular, who can you talk to about coming out and running drills? I've been looking for a field to just go out on random days and get some work done. I would obviously maintain the field and what not.

Was there once last year. NOT impressed at all. Was swampy, waited a bunch and refs were just ok. I would take my $$ elsewhere.

if u wanna play woodsball in central pa (HBG,York) Linglestown is the place to go. The Summey's run it very well. If you wanna play rec speedball, you can go to roundtop. but if u want real speedball go to PAP or OXCC in MD

recwoods at PAP is a joke. it should be called *****ball down there cuz they have too many safety rules

I might have to check them out then. I don't mind driving since I don't play often due to work. I would like to play decent rec airball, the PAP scene isnt there with REC players. If I get the chance to hop in a game, playing against d1/d2 players isnt always the best. (I am not terrible, but not playing every weekend has its disadvantages. ) Does OXCC have a decent rec scene?

I always had a good time at WannaPlay. I know a few guys that go out there to drill and run matches. Can't say I've been out there in a while though. I know there used to be a lot more teams than there are now.

Now you definitely don't need permission to play on any of the fields. Just ask the teams there if you can join the rotation and run a match/game or two. A team that turns down free practice probably is a lame team to play in the first place.

wannaplay no longer has a speedball team. they do not keep the airball fields blown up (or even mowed the last few times i was there), so yes, you def need permission to play airball at WPP. right now its down for the winter anyway...

I love Wannaplay, but it really sucks nowadays because their airball fields just lack.. I didn't realize their team broke up.

I use to goto WPP all the time and you REALLY do need to know someone to get a smaller group on the airball field. Lee use to be really good about it at the end of the day, but he isnt there any more sadly. Their refs are much more concerned with the newest toys and their own personal life then watching the games. Last time I was there I had to get their attention many times to curb the blind-firing and obvious wiping. The games are HUGE too. I have been there many times with 25-30 on a team.. If you are paying the refs in store credit ($2/hr credit when I was looking to ref there 6 years ago) you can have more of them on the weekends and split up the groups.

I goto Revolution/Roundtop now. Rarely have a single group bigger than 24ppl, and they are really good at splitting them up when they get too big.

I've played recball there twice. It was well run but the quality of the players really varied greatly. You had some decent players and some entry level folks. The staff and owner were both quite friendly and it didn't have an elitist feel like you get at some fields.

Ive run into too many 'pro-wanna-bes' who just run rampant in the woods acting like they are hot-****. Once, I was walking off the field, barrel plug in, gun up, and there was a cross fire, so I waited as to not get hit, the guy on the other team who was about 5' away from me, clearly visible to him, turns and lights me up. Now, my barrel plug is BRIGHT orange, the gun was pointed up, all the signs that say 'player out', again he was 5' away from me and there were no obstructions to his line of sight, and he lights me up. Saddly that is the type of player that WPP attracts. Not week-end rec players, but the guys who think they are pro-elite-turds dumping a hopper into the bunker of a walk-on-first-timer rental. That kid then goes home with the idea that he never wants to play again.
Have I bonus-balled by accident? Sure, but I also went to find that kid after the game and apologized for the extra hits.
The owner is a good guy though, and the refs arent BAD when they are actually reffing and not talking.
The fields are nice, big, and fun, but the groups are too big some times.
