Come down to SCP on a Sunday. Plenty of players looking for tournament like paintball - it will be a good time. I think you will find what you're looking for no question.

I'd recommend trying out both. Midway caters more torwards 7man style play and scp caters more to 5man and xball style play. They both have average sized rec ball as well.

do they normally have scrims for 7 or 5 man at midway?.. ive heard theres more tourney players that go to midway and more teams that are already organized for practice go to SCP... does this sound right?.. i like 5 man better but it would seem strange to only see 7 man scrims

Midway and Davis both are good places to check out for teams, usually have good scrims going on sundays at both fields. SCP is good as well from what I have heard but I haven't been down that way for a while on a normal weekend day to see.

^what he said.

SCP is a great field, but it caters mostly to fully fledged teams. They do have a walk on section, where you can meet up with some people and start forming a team.

Midway and Davis have teams, but it's always easy hopping in a small 5 or 7 man streetball team for the day. You'll get your money's worth.

I play at Midway and I've seen both 5 and 7-man practices..Depends on what is coming up. This weekend should be fun with a couple teams doing 5-man race to 2 practice for the RPL weekend after next.

RPL is Regional Players League, the events are held at Camp Pendleton in Southern CA and there are usually 4 or 5 events each year. the last event coming up is the weekend of the 10th and 11th of november.
