Smile Start up paintball field

Hello all...
I am writing this thread for a few different reasons. The first reason is to get some input/ feedback on "rough" numbers at other fields. I will be opening an indoor field in California about 1 hour north of San Francisco. This field will be 150x100 and will also have an outdoor field during the summer months. So my question is how many players usually attend an indoor field a month? What about an outdoor field a month?

I am also wondering how many games a normal field can have in an hour? We plan on running 4 games (each game is best of 3) an hour. Each game taking 10 minutes which leaves about 15-20 minutes of moving people on and off the field.

Finally does anyone have an advice about being a field owner? I do have a co-owner and also a seasoned paintball player as a manager.

Your input is greatly appreciated.

It will be a speedball field with the hopes of doing 5 man or even possibly 7 man. Our outdoor will most likely be tactical and maybe speedball a speedball field as well.

We will be trying a different payment system...self equip players will pay $7 an hour and rentals will be $12 an hour. We will only have HPA and air will be $3 for unlimited air all day.
