Upcoming Changes, July 4th, 2016

For immediate release:

We at Richmond Paintball have been serving the community since January of 2010. During this time, we have continued to try and provide a fun atmosphere, an outstanding playing field, and the best customer service the sport has to offer. One thing we always said that, we have to be different than everyone else. We have finally decided to take the plunge and release a new way people play paintball. 

As of July 4th, Richmond Paintball will be the only paintball field in Western Canada to exclusively offer .50cal paintball. This allows players to go in and feel safe and secure while playing, and enjoy the sport without having to worry about the pain.

Over the last several months we have begun to trial, change, and get ready for our launch of our exclusive .50cal option. We were not sure if this is the direction we wanted to take, but we have had very positive feedback, and a field that will allow it, where nobody else can.

We have changed and increased our insurance from 10 years old to 6 years old. We will be trialing the different age groups in determining which one is too young, and we'll keep it there. Currently we are offering .50 cal for ages 8 and up.

With this change, we will no longer be offering .68cal paintball unless requested through a private booking. This includes our loyal gun owners, whom have been with us for a long time. Though there were many rumors of change, we are here to confirm the rumors and to answer any questions.

Currently as it stands, our majority of .68cal gun owners participate on Monday and Friday evenings. We will be keeping Monday and Friday evenings open for .68cal gun owners, and anyone whom wishes to rent. Prices won't change, and nothing will change in that aspect. .50cal will be available on those evenings on a private booking basis.

Further, on weekends - we will not be offering .68cal rentals or the ability for equipment owner drop-ins unless a private booking has been booked. Gun owners can build an event to allow a minimum of 10 players to book a slot for play any day of the week. We will have a weekend sign up page each week for gun owners whom still want to play. 

We are also now allowing private bookings any day after 12pm with a minimum of 10 players in 3 hour blocks.  There is an additional fee upon checkout for exclusive private bookings (exept for gun owners).

We have eliminated Splatmaster, and are now exclusively offering .50cal as an alternative.
