New Paintball Park Breaks Ground in Grove City Ohio – LVL UP Sports


June 21st, 2016
Grove City, Ohio

Grove City and Columbus Ohio are getting a brand new paintball park,

located Grove City just 5 miles from Stringtown Road and 15 miles from The Ohio State University.  The grand opening is scheduled for August 21st, 2016.  The property is located on Harrisburg Pike between Orders Road and 665 – 5390 Harrisburg Pike, Grove City Ohio 43123

The project is lead by current Marketing Manager for DYE Precision Inc. (a world-wide leader in paintball equipment manufacturing) and paintball industry veteran Dave Pando, an Ohio University graduate. Pando and his partner John Wicks, also an OU grad and owner of Real Property and Design LLC, will be building a 36.5 acre paintball paradise, featuring a massive 6 acre woods-ball course, competitive tournament fields, themed outdoor playing fields, a fully stocked pro-shop, shooting range and more.

LVL UP Sports will have hundreds of sets of rental equipment ready to host open recreational play on weekends, private parties, military and police training, corporate team-building, church events, zombie-themed paintball games during Halloween, collegiate paintball tournaments, and more. The park has already received commitments to be the official practice facility for both The Ohio State University and Ohio University paintball teams.

The new company, pronounced “Level Up Sports”, believes embracing an outdoor lifestyle is paramount to sustaining a healthy community. Adding a world-class paintball park gives Franklin County another proven positive pastime option. Owner Pando: “Anyone who’s ever played at a great paintball park never forgets the experience. It’s always been my dream to build one here, where I grew up. Once a paintballer experiences that first rush… that first splat on an opponent, that first tournament win, or that shiny new paintball marker, the hobby quickly becomes a massively enjoyable addition to their lives. It’s just pure fun, and anyone can play.”

The owners of LVL UP Sports welcome any local Ohio sports teams, media outlets, fundraising organizations and families looking to plan an exciting, safe, and unforgettably fun paintball outing to visit, e-mail or call 614-313-1382 to schedule a 2016 event.

Several job openings and internship opportunities are posted on the LVL UP website, along with free paintball tickets for a limited time.
