ALL ARCHERY EQUIPMENT IS PROVIDED
All necessary archery equipment including: bows, arrows, mask, and arm guards are provided for you in any Archery Games booking.
You are not permitted to bring in your own bow or arrows to play, but you can choose to bring in your own safety equipment (masks or arm guards) if you so choose*
*Subject to inspection of the Archery Games referee to ensure that equipment meets necessary safety guidelines
CENTRE LINE: This line divides the field in half, and it is where the arrows are placed for the start of the game.
ATTACK LINES: These lines define the Safe Zone between them, and they must be crossed before being able to shoot your arrows.
SAFE ZONE: This is where you retrieve arrows from. Archers are not allowed to shoot or be shot while in the Safe Zone (hits made here are not counted).
Players are divided into two teams of 3-8 archers.
All archers (bows in hand) start off lined up against the wall on their side of the field.
The referee will signal the start of the game, at which point archers race to the middle Safe Zone and retrieve the arrows.
Archers are not allowed to shoot or be shot while in the Safe Zone (hits made here are not counted).
Archers cannot enter onto their opponent’s side of the field while they are in play.
When an archer is hit by an arrow from the opposing side, they are tagged out and must make their way around the outer wall to their opponent’s wall until the next game starts.
If you hit out an opposing team’s target – one of your team’s archers is brought back into play.
