Hopefully I can keep this short and sweet but anyways,

Tonight was my first time every playing paintball at this field, I wasn't too sure exactly what I was walking into before I got there. Once I got there and went inside with James who works there, we walked the field. My first thought was holy **** this place has literally the perfect turf GRADE A+++ turf no doubt about it. The bunkers were perfect not some thrown together bunkers with patch's. This place has an amazing setup and can only get bigger and better. After speaking with the owner Jerry, it sounds like he wants nothing but success for his field, like any field owner, but he needs help.... OUR help as players, word of mouth, promote this place, stop by and check it out, check out the staff. If your not into speedball they've got a field for rec players that has some nice big buildings. I drove about just over an hour to play here tonight and it was one of my better decisions. The guys I played with were nice and I believe we had some fun.

Statesboro Paintball, definitely has my vote and I would love to make and keep this to be my home field. I will definitely be doing everything I can to promote this place and get people to play here because it can only get bigger and better like I said.

Ohh one last thing, as of right now its reball, but the owner is trying out real paint, make a call to them and ask if they still are doing real paint and that's why you want to play there, keep the real paint.. More players, more paint, more profit makes everyone happy.

To the guys who I played with tonight and helped out on gear I appreciate it!!

Unfortunately we will not be holding practice anymore. The owner has decided that the paint is too messy and he is worried about messing up the turf. I have tried all I can to convince him otherwise, but he is very persistent on keeping the turf clean. He will allow paint on a new field that will be opening at the beginning of August. It will be a sawdust field and will have buildings, a bus, etc. I know this is probably not what interests you guys, so feel free to contact Jerry and tell him that Statesboro needs a true speedball field. I am pleased with the amount of good players that are around the area. Hopefully we can find another place to play and continue to grow the community. Thanks to everyone who came out and played.

This is very sad to hear. The owner really has NO idea what he has here, he has some of the best turf and bunkers and doesn't realize what he could do. He has the ability to turn Statesboro Paintball into a major playing ground, he can very well host many tournaments if he played his cards right. People if you have played here with real paint, or even played here with reballs and want to use real paint you need to call him and express your wants. Just like everything else in life the biggest way to promote something is word of mouth, I am doing my part to promote this place and get Jerry the business, I have only played here twice; once with real paint and today with reballs. I was not happy with todays outcome, there was me and another player that I brought with me. We were not even able to play 100% because rotors wouldn't cycle or the balls would just drop off. Never the less I still had a good time. I am very soon going to have a large group of near 100 player come out, and I am hoping that with a vast majority of them pushing the issue of wanting real paint on that speedball course he will start to rethink his decision. I am going to call Jerry this week and hopefully sit down with him and try to come to some sort of agreement.

The area needs this place, the players need this place, you have to voice your opinion and he needs to hear it. Give him a call..

I was surprised to hear yall were having practice out there with real paint, as when it first opened I contacted him and he said no way.

That sucks. I understand what he is trying to do though and it is actually a pretty smart concept from a business standpoint, but calling it Statesboro Paintball is false advertising if they wont allow real paint.

Unfortunate because it is a great facility from what ive seen and heard. I am hoping that eventually his mind will change. There has to be some sort of equipment out there designed to clean turf - maybe the players could pitch in to help purchase whatever equipment is needed.

It took a lot of convincing for the practices to happen and they were always a trial run. The original idea was to open an outdoor field and move speedball out there. He couldn't get the zoning worked out so it bacame an indoor field. He doesn't understand the speeball market and honestly believes everyone will want to play on sawdust (which will be dangerous to slide on). I am moving back home to Douglasville, so it's out of my hands now. I know the demand for a nice field is there and with some help, hopefully it will open again.

I'm just glad there is still some interest after being told no paint, however with people asking for paint he will give in with time.

I had fun at the practice I went to, its a bummer he won't let us continue to shoot real paint on it. I'll at least call and leave a message and help try to change his mind.
