Combat archery is a game that combines archery and dodgeball into an arrow shooting, heart pumping battle experience. How the game is played: the game leaders say ‘go’ and both teams run to the center of the field, collect as many arrows as they can and run for cover. Archers load their arrows and try to hit a player on the opposing team.
You can dodge, hide behind obstacles or even crouch in the sniper tower to avoid incoming fire. When you get the chance, you release your arrow. If you hit a player they are out…but be careful if they catch your arrow you are out! All safety gear is provided!
Safety always comes first: all protective gear is supplied including full face makes and body armour, play at their own risk, and follow player guidelines to reduce the risk of injury. Players will be supervised at all times and must abide by all game rules.
