1. Is it possible to run just a 1 or 2 Speedball fields either indoor or outdoor. (and break even/make money)
2. I have been thinking of using reballs. Anyone use reballs outdoors? Or only indoor?
3. Would you say outdoor fields with grass or turf are better?
4. How many reballs are needed to run a field? (10,000, 20000?)
If you are going to do Reball indoors.. And let's say you run 7v7 and everyone fills their hopper and 4 pods... (200x14)+(180x56)= 12886... So I would say you would need at least another 30000 on top of that so people can fill pods and be ready to play, but I am guessing you will still need more then even those extra 30000.
Also if your just going to do speedball.. In my opinion you will not make any money. You might, but seems like woods/rec is the money maker.
