Farmer Day Out - Archery Wars

Farmer Day Out - Archery Wars

Hautapu Rugby Club, 26 March. Games start 11am.

Published on Monday, March 8, 2021

Minimum pain, maximum fun 

 

This activity is a perfect mix of the agility of dodgeball and the precision aim of paintball, with a few bows and foam tipped arrows thrown in for good measure! 

Battle it out on the Archery War combat zone to ‘eliminate’ the opposition by tagging them with an arrow. It's an adrenaline and action-filled alternative to paintball. 

This is a combination of healthy rivalry and the in-your-face action. Players are in close quarters throughout the game, so a lot of banter goes on and everyone gets to see all the action, as it unfolds (unlike paintball, where you often only hear about it after the game has ended). The bows are easy to fire and, with a little bit of practice, you'll be surprised at just how easy it is to hit your target. 

Want to be part of the day?  

Enter yourself in the battle or enter a team of up to 5 people.
