A local indoor field near me closed after a few years becuase they only offered speedball on one field, and it was a poorly run facility. They did great in the winter, but lacked the rest of the year. They tried to remedy this by opening up an outdoor village type field, but it didnt help.
I looked into what it would cost to open up an indoor facility that offered speedball and "woodsball".... We priced out the rent on two prefab buildings, the cost of building the fields indoors, cost of maitaining them, and then the insurance for the field... Needless to saay, witht he people i had ready to invest, i wouldnt start turning a profit till a minimum of ten years after opening, and that was selling paint at 80 bucks a case... Ten bucks more then the most popular field in my area...
While i love the concept of being to play indoors year round, its just too damn expensive and too niche a market... Every indoor field in new hampshire has closed... The closest one i can think of is boston paintball, only reason they survive is becuase they have been around for ever and have a manolopy in te indoor field market in the area....
