Archery Challenge is a fun, fast-paced and adrenaline fuelled sport often described as a crazy combination of dodgeball, paintball and archery.

Are you up for the challenge?

You can play on your own, with your friends, family, or the public. It’s a fun, tactical game!

Arm yourself with foam tipped safety arrows, grab your bow and safety mask, and enter the court of bunkers and barricades for a range of exciting games.

We provide the bows, arrows and helmets.

Children are supervised at all times by our DBS checked, fully trained Archery Challenge Instructors.

All participants need to be over the age of 10yrs old.
