For you refs that work on the fields and maintenance tips

Any of you guys have any tips for things you notice to help improve the play and ease of use of fields? Lets make a thread with any experiences people have had that can help.

One thing I have noticed is cheap yellow rope tied off to trees helps a lot with pathways and the boundaries of fields, even if there are natural boundaries.

Also working on woodsball fields if your trying to build a bunker with downed branches and logs try to find two trees near each other to stack the logs into to make it taller and more sound.

Use trees as posts.

Anyone got anything else useful?

Hi I'm glad to see this post and hopefully this helps:

-When building bunkers, keep edges smooth so people don't get snagged on them while running by.
-Solid bunkers (no or few holes to shoot through) are popular but it's also nice to have a variety such as pallets or barrels.
-Keep the ground clear of ankle twisting rocks or sticks. (especially after a storm)
-Try to build the field so it's fair for both teams, one golden bunker could cause one side to win more often than the other.
-If you play paintball yourself, walk through and check out angles so you can get a good idea of how it will play out.
-Change the field from time to time. Return players are always looking for something new. Even putting up or tearing down a bunker every month will show your customers that you are always thinking about new ways to change the field.
-Sometimes less is more. Too many bunkers may yield a game where players are getting too close.
-Finally, listen to customer feedback. Even noobies have great ideas for what you can do to optimally construct a field.

-Wooooo Paintball!!!
-Great recreational paintball and speedball in the heart of the Poconos (Pennsylvania)
