A new business says it will paintball players a place to do what they love year round once it opens this week.
The 10,000 square foot Velocity Indoor Paintball Arena will celebrate its grand opening Friday March 6.
The arena, located at the Peach Tree Swap Meet, will host private parties and league play during the week, then open to the public every Friday, Saturday, and Sunday.
Owners say even though many businesses are in a slump right now they couldn't think of a better time to launch -- they say because they give Grand Valley residents something inexpensive to do closer to home, they're confident the arena will do very well.
"Western Colorado is a place that loves shooting sports and we've really kind of solved the hassles of playing paintball," said Gilbert Maynard, owner of Velocity Indoor Paintball. "We have everything in one place."
In addition to the arena, Velocity will also have a pro shop set up in the Swap Meet, where players can buy or rent gear.
Maynard says he will charge players who bring their own gear to the arena $20 to get in. Players needing to rent equipment will pay $25.
The arena will be open from 10am to midnight on Friday and Saturday, and 10am to 5pm on Sunday.
