New Field in Denham?

I heard this through the grapevine. Hopefully I am not spoiling any surprises. Or have I been out of LA for so long as to not know anything about this.

C - Ro you said it perfect. "If they do it right." I found their FB page. They say the word speedball, but I don't think they know what it means. Sounds like they mean hyperball.
The question was asked about what format the speedball field would be- millennium, psp, xball- and they said none of those. I asked if they would be using wooden or man made bunkers or blow ups and I'm waiting on a response


Anyways, they're opening in October.


***EDIT***

I just called the number they listed on Facebook. Spoke to Jason Ray, the operator of the new field. He said for now, the speedball field is going to be an inflatable 20 somethin piece set. Field is going to be 100'x50'. Jason explained that his plans are to grow to a full size xball field with your typical 46 or 50 piece PSP layout. This field is just to get a feel for it.

i messaged the guy on facebook, he said it will be inflatable, but he told me the field size would be 50 x 100 and a 3.5 acre woodsball type field ... i suggested to him that his speedball field needs to be larger .. regulation is 150' x 120. If he dosent make the field regulation, he won't have a speedball crowd for sure.

He said he has plenty more space for it so hopefully he makes it happen asap. I meant to ask about a pro shop or anything like that.

Well, bottom line is that is players in the Baton Rouge area want to see the field grow, they have to support it and help it grow. It takes alot of money to get a field started im sure. If the owner or owners seem like there into it and serious, players just have to stick with them and hopefully it can be a full size field soon.

Picking up a used xball field is cheap, he should look into doing that

Lots of players want to see the field and help it grow but they also want something for nothing. They aren't willing to pay higher paint prices to help the field turn a profit therefore they leave. I've seen it happen to many times.

Thats why in my honest opinion, the real way to make money is concentrate more on your rec players and woodsball players, us "tournament players" most definatly dont want to go anywhere we have to pay full price, lol

No doubt. Fields make probably 75% of their money from parties and group bookings. I honestly don't think weekendrec/tourney players pad their pockets- basically speedball guys.


Just like any other business, you have to ask "what do you offer and why is it better than the other guy?" A good business plan can take you a long ways
