What is Combat archery?
What is Combat archery? We will begin by explaining the key parts of the equipment and getting you into your shooting position, before having a few practice shots. We will then split you off into two teams as you prepare to do battle. Take aim at your opponents as you discover your inner Robin Hood, ducking and diving behind barricades to become the overall champion. Combat archery is a fun, energetic, fast paced game with endless possibilities guaranteed to add fun and laughter to any event.
Getting ready for your archery combat session
Your archery combat session will be begin by getting used to the equipment, which is great fun by itself as you learn new skills. During the games you will be running around, ducking and diving behind barricades. With larger groups we will rotate players on and off, it is quite physical and you’ll be happy with a breather. The rules vary depending which games we play, however all the games we play are great fun.
