Speedball is a version of paintball that involves inflatable barriers. The inflatable barriers are configured in a way that challenges players. Speedball requires teams to communicate and strategize their movements. Our newly updated Speedball Field is now up and running!
We have set it up on a flat area of our property with inflatable barriers that are equally aligned for both teams. This ensures players’ safety and fair game conditions for everyone involved. We are now running our updated speedball field. We host open speedball every Wednesday evening starting at 5 pm and Sunday morning starting at 9 am.
Inflatable bunkers in a grass or turf field are used in Speedball which is a paintball variant. The bunkers are arranged in various configurations to test the players, necessitating teamwork, speed, and agility. Speedball is a sport in which three, five, seven, or ten players compete in teams of three, five, seven, or ten. The points system is different based on whether you’re playing the NPPL’s opposing flag format or the Race2 style.
Speedball is a specific form of paintball game. It’s played on a big, flat field with no natural impediments, comparable to a football or soccer field. The fields in speedball are usually made of artificial turf.
A speedball field is set up on a flat field with inflatable bunkers evenly spaced for both teams. This assures the safety of the athletes as well as fair playing conditions for both sides. Professional speedball tournament fields are typically smaller than recreational fields. The smaller the area, though, the more agility and speed you’ll need to win!
The ability to use inflatable obstacles improves player safety by reducing the risk of injury from encounters with tougher objects. Inflatable obstacles have grown in popularity and are widely used in paintball games.
If you’re going to play speedball, you can wear cleats, but stay away from ones with metal spikes. Unlike paintball, you want to stay away from trail shoes and boots as speedball is played on a filed. It goes without saying that open-toe sandals should be avoided.
Note: You need to bring your own shoes to use while playing the game. It is advised to bring clean shoes for the trip home.
Speedball is a fast-paced paintball game used in recreational settings in a tiny area better suited for putting on a show. Fronts or frontman, mid or mid-players, floaters, backs or back-players, and inserts are the most common positions for speedball paintball players. These five roles make up a team, and each one provides a distinct necessity on the team during a game.
We are currently open by reservation only and are NOT accepting players that are walking on without a valid reservation. You must have a reservation in order to rent equipment. There is no minimum amount of players to make a reservation on a weekend. Please call 6138351729 or book a reservation today!
In order to make a reservation, we require the name of the organizer, a phone number and the number of players. When closer to the date of the booking, we require a valid credit card number. We do not use the card and everyone pays separately at the field on the date of the game, however, the organizer has 48 hours to cancel the whole group. The organizer is not responsible for no-shows. If no one calls to cancel the group and no one shows up from the group, we charge the card a $20 per player penalty. If you do not have a credit card, we require a $20 deposit per player in advance to hold the reservation.
With the exception of walk-on days, which open at 10:00 a.m., we are very group driven, so we do not have set open and close times. We open when the first group is booked in and close when the groups are done or when it gets dark, whatever comes first. If you are walking in, we recommend you do not come out any later than 2:00 p.m. as a start time, as we cannot run with less than 10 players.
This means you are not subject to mingling and your group will be moved around from field to field and there will be no outside players allowed in your group. If a group wants to be private, there is a privacy fee of $150 to be paid in advance
The refs at Commando are the best I’ve seen out of any field I’ve been to, they know their stuff, re-enforce the rules when they need to, they’re fun, and most of all they’re fair. Great employees are only made if you have great leaders. Dave and Marie are some of the nicest and funniest people I know, they do their very best to make sure that the fields are kept clean.
Even though I have only been going to Commando Paintball for 3 years now I feel like the place is home and people are family. My brother and I received Spyder MR5’s for Christmas 3 years ago and went to Commando to play with it shortly after and we were instantly hooked on the field and the players
Going to Commando I always have a smile on my face because I know its going to be a good day. Its my happy place because I know the people are excited to see me and I’m excited to see them but most of all, we know we’re going to have a good time. The members at the field are some of the friendliest people. They like to have a good time and when they see new players they make sure to help them out.
