I'm not looking to start a field or anything, I've just always been curious about what kind of requirements there are in order to open a field. Oddly enough, there is very little online regarding this topic.

You need land, tons of money, and some fantastic insurance, and the usual business stuff like tax documents.

Also, I was wondering what the requirements were in terms of location in regards to nearest homes and commercial centers. I noticed that most outdoor fields are completely hidden, away from all commercial and residential areas.

My field is next to a farm......smells like cow poop in the spring and summer.

In my area, the land must be approved by the county for sports use, and any land that is is priced incredibly high. There is nothing that specifies paintball is to be treated any differently than any other sport, as long as the paintball insurance is willing to insure the field the county will allow it to use land for sports. However, due to the inflated price for land that's been allocated for sports, we found a little spot on the local National Guard base and just lease from them.

Also, most states require the firing of paintball markers for recreation to be at least a quarter mile away from buildings and roads. At least that's what it is in my county, though I assume the situation is similar elsewhere.

If you haven't seen the GatSplat owner's guide to opening a paintball field, it's pretty interesting. Not much about zoning in there, though.

There is an indoor field I frequent in Greater Boston. AKA Boston Paintball. Its essentially right in a shopping complex right off of Route 1 5 minutes from Boston. 

 

There is also another field I spend a lot of time at in the summer. BOLP up in NH that was essentially some guys back yard in the middle of a bunch of farms near UNH that grew into a field overtime. You actually have to go through his parents driveway to get to it haha. Amazing place though. Easily one of my favorite places to play.

 

Then there is OSG up in NH as well. OSG is essentially the boonies middle of fucking nowhere.

This field is in between houses and businesses right off of a major road. One of the best round. Look up the address on google maps. The field has been there for over 10 years.
