Question need indoor field advise - Oakland County

Im new to paintball and have been a lurker on here for a while trying to gather as much info as possible before i made any investments into the sport. I am trying to get my fiance and her friends to come play a few games this saturday. I am the only one who has actually played a few games. I am trying to find an indoor place that isnt nasty inside and is a good place for new players to come and enjoy themselves and not get lit up by the pros. We all live in Novi area in oakland county, MI but would drive somewhere within an 1-1.5 hours to get to a good field. Any advise would be greatly appreciated. We are all close to 30 and responsible adults (I am sometimes) so we wont be tearing up anyones field and being inconsiderate if that means anything. Thank you!

I'll second the first post.

Cru is going to be your best bet within your driving area. For an indoor field it is as clean as they come (don't expect spotless, but you won't find any better). Plus as mentioned they have 2 indoor fields (one nice "tournament style" airball field and another recball wooden bunkers field), which is nice and adds a little variety to the experience. I've been to a few different fields in the area and comparing them I'd say you can't really go wrong with Cru. If you have any more questions feel free to message me and I'll give you as unbiased answers as possible.

looks like we are going to be at CRU on satruday. Keep an eye out for a few noobs running around looking like fools. (That will be us.) feel free to come say hi and/or give us some pointers. I am mostly concerned about the girls not getting lit up really bad and hating it.

If you live on the west side, TC Paintball in Grand Rapids. But if you live on the East side, Cru is a great field, so I would check them out.

I've heard nothing but great things about CRU.. I'm going to make the trip over from Muskegon eventually..

Most (I say most) people won't light up new people, as it ruins the fun. Hope you all have a great time!!

I plan on hitting CRU some time in the next few weeks once my G6R comes in. Will be nice to step on a nice field after 5 years off.

We get people come solo to the field all the time at CRU. The management and staff will make you feel at home not to worry. You can call the field and find out how big of a crowd will be expected on any given day but there should always be competition around on Friday night and any weekend day.
