I usually like for my 5man fields to be 100-110 x 160-180 (playing area,an additional 15' feet all around for buffer and dead boxes) for 5man with 16-20 bunkers depending on what you have to work with. This is for a 10 minute game.

This seems to be a correct size for all of the components of a tournament:

1. Breakout potential,(to shoot and be shot)
2. Movement potential(bunker spacing,not to far
3. Paint yield (per field, per man)

It should also be set up for height decreasing from start to center with some inovations at the tapes. "Yield again"

Field size will vary since there is no one way to set up the bunkers. I like variety myself but still try to give much consideration to the three factors above regardless of the format or time limit.

I will have some example of fields and referee placements on the Ref Corps website in a few days.
