Depending on how many players you have and your chosen format, all events vary.

All events begin with a safety briefing and a run down of how the archery combat equipment works, the rules and time to practise using the bows and arrows.
Is Archery Combat safe?
The equipment has been specifically designed with safety in mind. The arrows have a round rubber tip which absorb the impact. The bows are made from a flexible material that is difficult to break.

What ages do you run events for?
Junior events are run for kids from 12 years of age until 16 years.
Junior events are run for set age groups, and can only be played in these groups and cannot be mixed.
Do the kids/Juniors need to be of similar ages?
Kids of different age ranges will not be able to play together due to size and weight differences for health and safety purposes.
The guidelines for the children's age groups can be found above.
We usually recommend the children’s ages to be within three years but exceptions are circumstantially allowed.
Do you provide Food/Party Rooms?
Food is not included in our packages.
We recommend all groups visit fast food chains, or restaurants close to the venues.
We can assist in finding these places at your convenience.
What is a 3G pitch?
3G pitches are the most significant and successful development in synthetic surface technology designed for football and rugby at both competitive and recreational levels.
In 3G turf, the pile (artificial grass 'blades') is supported by a thin base layer of sand, and by an infill of rubber crumb.
The pile height ranges from 40mm to 65mm depending on which primary sport is to be played on the surface.
Is there parking and changing facilities at my venue?
Most of our venues have shower and changing facilities that can be used before leaving your event, please ask us to confirm at time of booking.
Parking is venue dependent, and if required please inform us and we can look to accommodate this.
