Pensacola X/Speedball Fields?

Are there any fields like these near here? Within an hour or so drive is fine, I just can't seem to find anything.

Mobile, bobs paintball has an airball(ish) field. And apparently Elgin AFB is reopening their field, potentially without needing military ID to get in.

Any idea if they'll have an airball field at Elgin? Reason being I'd like to get into the tournament scene eventually and our airball field at Dangerzone isn't so great.

According to the guy who posted it, they've got a small speedball setup already, but it's limited by space. If they get more space they'll have a good setup.

Sweet, I'll make sure to check it out. What field do you visit most often?

I usually play at southern alabama, it's woodsball/scenario but I can't handle airball around there as a walk on.

Southern Alabama paintball looks awesome. I wish it wasn't over 2 hours away from Fort Walton. I'll probably drive out there one weekend to check it out though. Is it usually pretty busy when you go?

Uh, depends...I've never played with less than 20-a-side even in the heat of summer. Most I've seen was around 50-a-side. Great refs, lots of space, nice group of regulars, it's worth my drive from Pensacola.

Did you go to the opening? If so, how was it? I think I might head out there and check it out next weekend.

The sell valken infinity and echo paint, prices are reasonable. I think it's 38 for a case of infinity, but don't quote me on that. It's also b.y.o.p. with your own equipment.
It's 10 for entry and 10 for all day air, but it's scuba fills to 3000 psi. The soft opening was half price. No co2 unless you bring your own.
Maybe 1 ref but it's really ref yourself. So in a lot of ways similar to dangerzone.

He's got a lot of land to expand into, but right now the field is longish, almost a football field with woods covering the far side away from the road and large bunkers covering the near side. It is however narrow, maybe 60 feet, so if there are a lot of people on each team, it's easy to get bogged down. Field as designed right now provides the near side with lots of solid cover, because of the bunkers, but the far side, while being hard to see has no real cover. The owners doing this mostly by himself on his own time, so I can understand why the field hasn't been balanced perfectly, but if it was me I'd cut the far side down and add some bunkers. Which I'm sure will happen in time.
Honestly, it's not bad and has a lot of room to improve, but right now it's set up more like a really nice private field, but it's not a commercial one yet. If there are a lot of people playing at one time, it's way to crowded, 3-a-side, 5-a-side works well. All in all a ton of potential, and it's my closest field now. But on a crowded day, if there's not some real organization, I'd choose to make the drive to some other places.

My friends and I are going to Paintball Panic to give some support. My main field will most likely be Danger Zone though since he might pick up those speed ball inflatable bunkers.

I didn't go to PP last weekend but it looks like there was a decent amount of people there from the pictures posted on the field's Facebook page. I'm trying to decide which one to go to this weekend... I want to give PP a shot, but from the sounds of it the field is very small right now and was crowded last weekend. I spoke with the owner on Facebook and he said they tested out the "speedball" field last weekend. However, according to a Facebook post on their page, the big woodsball field (supposed to be ~3 acres) will be in play by Saturday. But with that being said, it's just straight up woods - no bunkers at the time.

Well if the full field is in play, That would be worth the trouble trying out for the money.
