That's right, ladies! Get a taste of what it's like to be Katniss and go into a combat situation with a bendy bow and arrows that actually absorb shock. So when you get hit there's no harm done. Bristol Battlezone Archery is a blend of three top events: archery, dodgeball and paintball. You play in teams for points. There are a number of different games to keep you on your toes and make things super interesting. The team with the most points at the end wins the whole shooting match.
No skirmish ever goes to plan from start to finish. There are rules of course but there are twists and surprises too. Eliminating members of the other team is a given but you can do other stuff too. Like bring your eliminated players back into the game if you catch an arrow. There's a neutral zone as well, plus bunkers so you can take cover.
The event coordinators will do a briefing before you begin and give out a bunch of face masks and also things like arm and finger guards for those who want them. The hen and the maid of honour have got to be on opposite teams, it ups the ante and adds to the excitement.
