That sucks. I'm guessing they're not interested in any of that stuff yet until they are up for a bit longer (still somewhat of a new place).

A nice place like that has gotta give up a sponsorship sooner or later

From what i understand about sponsership. They have all these teams that want to be sponsored by ballers. They want to play for free and get paint cheap. OK fine but what will that bring them, the same group of players. While that is fine and dandy they are trying to get as many new ppl introduced into the paintball community. So that is why they are putting so much advertisement out there. So all in all the more new players that play may like it and bring their friends. Means more ppl will play paintball and with more ppl maybe then they can lower prices.

What I'm guessing is that they're making enough money as it is, so why bother sponsoring and etc if they don't need to...

Anyways, I've been hearing prices should be going down soon....

Truth be told a small place like this won't want to sponsor a team. Try getting a sponsorship from a larger field and it will still be hard. You are not offering them much in return for them not making a profit. Unfortunately everyone wants, wants, wants and doesn't give anything back to the sport. Why do you think that so many companies are struggling and why sponsorships are harder to come by? They can bring in a birthday group every weekend with that tv ad and will make more money then you can bring them.

I personally think that if they lowered their prices their level of service and the quality of the facility will do enough for them. I think they have an awesome place if leveraged correctly. They are new so it will be awhile before they get everything figured out.

If the prices were competitive for to those of 20bps more tournament players will go... especially during the summer. I would pay a $10-20 premium if I could bring my own paint and play in the heat of the summer. That would be worth it for me, especially given the location.

Thank you pballbeast. They are in the works to cater to our speedball market. They are offering a team practice day with diffrent paint. Now from what i was told compared to what the avrage team pays for paint and play it would cost you about the same to play @ ballers or 23. So in time this place will only get better, but there is a learning curve for them so be patient.

yea i talked to a few workers there yesterday about it, i guess he invested about 2.5 mil in the place, thats why they are charging so much right now, tthey did say they are gonna lower the prices soon, but the team day thing paint is gonna be 40 a case with the same entrance fee, and its not gonna be black shell so the empires and pulse will work lol

empire and pulse are the only 2 that work right now with the black shell paint because they dont use eyes empire goes off sound and pulse uses pressure halos are the ones with eyes and the black shell paint confuses them
