You sign in at the reception desk, signing waivers and settling any outstanding payment then go to training for a briefing on health and safety and how to hold the bow and arrow.

Following that, you’ll have full equipment provided and opportunities to train on our range to perfect your skills.

Next, we’ll jump into the arena and get straight into the action! Games are done in two teams (Black and White) to accumulate the most points, with the winner getting bragging rights with our winner/loser photos!



Classic Gameplay

Classic is played like the sport of dodgeball. Starting from your back lines you’ll run to the centre to retrieve a single arrow and begin fighting against your opponents! Using your bow and foam-tipped arrows you’ll have to strategically decide to shoot players or spot targets. Obstacles appear on either side of the arena and teams must work together to fulfil their victory condition. Each game of Classic Combat Archery lasts no longer than 5 minutes and can be played with 6 - 20 players. Players can be revived through fellow teammates catching an arrow or knocking out one of the spot targets. Games are won in one of the three below ways:
