Battlezone Archery

 

 

Battlezone Archery is an exciting combat game that allows players all the excitement of Dodgeball but using specially made bows and arrows.

 Why Battlezone Archery

Battlezone Archery uses the latest equipment to bring you this action packed real adrenalin fun game for all ages and all abilities. It is designed to be user friendly.

 

Battlezone Archery Game play

Two teams of equal players face off across a purpose built field layout. Each team has 5 specially designed bunkers made by Boost Air®, 5 target cones that are placed in front of each bunker, each holding a ball. There are several objectives to the game. The scoring is very simple! You will get 30 points for an eliminated player and 50 points for a targeted cone. Each game will last for up to 10minutes, where the scores are added and teams swap ends.

There are two umpires each responsible for a half zone of the field. The two teams are separated by a neutral zone. If a player catches an arrow, they can bring one of their eliminated players back in to the game. The game ends when either, all team members are eliminated, all 5 cones have been hit or time runs out. The umpires have a scorecard for each game and will record the points. A match is made up of 5 games. If there are numerous teams, then it is run as matches where the winning team moves through to the next round, so there will be an eventual winner.

How Safe is Battlezone Archery?

The equipment has been specially designed for the game. The Battlezone Archery arrows have a round rubber tip, which will absorb the impact when it hits a player. The Battlezone Archery bows mare made of a flexible material so are difficult to break, no other type of bow must be used for the game. Each player will wear a safety mask for added protection to the head. Available if necessary are body protectors. Arm and finger guards are provided to all players.
