    You play against other people who are renting or self equipped, as far as I know, you can’t rent the field.

      We allow private games on the field to the right. We also do private parties during the week. For a weekday party you must have 20 players or pay for 20 players, and then purchase paintballs the day of your party.

    Most people I know show up in teams with friends and family. Can someone show up alone?

      Yes you can just show up. When you walk on the field the REFS will pick teams to try their best to create even teams.
