Bringing the exciting new sport of Archery Tag to Canterbury
Archery Combat Sports is currently a fully mobile service* - providing you the opportunity to play Archery Tag at a park or school in your neighbourhood. Normally all we need is an area around the size of a Netball court and enough space around to avoid interfering with other users of the area.
If the weather is unfavourable or you don't have a suitable "home" venue, we're based in Rangiora where we have access to a number of indoor and outdoor venues in the area. We'll work with you to choose the best game arena for your group, which might be an indoor sports courts, outdoor artificial turfs or local park. (Note: venue selection will be based on weather, group size and venue availability.)
Some of our venues are also able to offer food and bar services, so please let us know when booking if you would like to include these options at your event**.
*Depending on location an additional charge may apply for our mobile service to cover travel costs
**Food and bar services are at additional cost to Archery Tag hire - quote will be provided. Conditions apply.
Booking well in advance of your event can help us to arrange the best venue to suit your group's requirements.
Archery Tag® is a fast-paced sport that combines the ancient skill of archery with the head-to-head combat excitement of Dodgeball/Paintball/Laser Tag to create a dynamic group event everyone will enjoy.
Two teams battle it out armed only with a bows and soft, foam-tipped arrows. Your aim is to take out opponents and targets in order to gain points or be the last person standing. It's dynamic and great fun, plus you'll leave with no bruising or marks - it's totally safe!
Archery Tag can be played indoors or out and there are a number of different game play options to suit every group size. We generally cater for ages 10 years and older, though some younger children are quite capable and we may be able to accommodate them.
It's also important to understand Archery Tag is not just for kids - it's also a heap of fun for adult groups. The beauty of the game is it "adjusts" to the age and ability of the players, making it a perfect event for everyone!
When you make your booking the team at Archery Combat Sports will work with you to put together an event your group will not soon forget.
Archery Tag is ideal for all sorts of group events including Corporate Team-Building, Bachelor(ette) Parties, University and School groups, LARP enthusiasts, Birthday parties and more. We've got some fantastic locations in North Canterbury or may be able to come to your place.
Just get your group together and make your booking.
We're planning on running an Archery Tag league in Rangiora during each school term. This will involve weekly games against different teams with points accumulated towards being crowned Champion.
If you are interested in entering a 6-person team please contact us and if there is enough interest we'll get the league started ASAP.
We don't have any set operating hours as such but as we have a pretty accommodating day job we can normally work with your preferred times if we have plenty of notice. Fridays and weekends are preferred.
Unfortunately we do not run regular "open" sessions at this time but we are hoping to do so during the school holidays. Watch this space.
