Best paintball in the lower mainland?

Just as the title suggests, I'm looking to organize a paintball event with some guys / girls from work. There's a bunch in langely, surrey, Richmond, etc... but I have only gone to the one in tsawwassen.

Anyone have a good recommendation?

Group is probably going to be around 20 people.

thanks

Depends what you're looking for.

I'd stick to Panther or Ambush, both have great locations(outdoors) and are very friendly. They have scenario and speedball fields and they have done major upgrades to these fields.

If you prefer indoor then go to Richmond indoor paintball. They also have done a bunch of renovations, but with the heat it gets really hot inside.

The biggest complaint about paintball is their masks, rental masks are crap and unfortunately they will always fog. There's nothing you can do, unless you buy your own mask.. FYI

I used to play speedball on a team and was a regular at RIP and Ambush.

The field in Tsawassen is gone. Delta Force Paintball there took over Maple Ridge Paintball. Panther and Ambush are probably your best bets, unless people don't want to go that far. RIP or North Shore paintball are the only closer options.

Paintball is the worst run/organized sport I've ever taken a part of, run by the most arrogant/ignorant people I've ever come across. perhaps since the time we've left it its improved but man, no wonder it's never gotten off the ground.

Me and my buddies invested like 900-1500 in gear, played 5-6 times then stopped going. Public games there were almost fist fights like every game

you make a good point. PB is a tight knit community and they don't take kindly to outsiders coming in. That kind of attitude always pissed me off, and kept me from taking it more seriously. We had a speedball team and had some success, but coming out to a public drop in night, and getting ONE game per hour while the staff walked around the corner to get high was enough for me to say "fuk this".



My brothers and I used to be regulars at Panther. They have a good location, and have been doing it for years. We still go there a couple times a year when I feel like busting out the old autococker and having some fun.

Tsawassen was the best for local paintball back in the day. Too bad they're gone now.

At Richmond you can pony up a couple bucks for a rental anti-fog mask. Best decision I ever made and could see everything, even managing a few long-range shots!

Yep thats the one

very bottom of Capilano Rd.

Its smaller but I think thats makes the games more exciting and the hill makes for lots of different game modes

If you guys don't mind crossing the border, I have had a blast before at Go Big Paintball near Lynden.
