ARCHERY COMBAT TAG – ARCHERY TAG IN THE NEW FOREST & DORSET
Insight Activities are now offering live team-based Archery Combat Tag. Our archery tag combat games combine specifically designed ‘tagging’ arrows with traditional, full power, recurve bows- the ultimate archery combat experience, a safe yet thrilling archery tag game. The ultimate aim is to ‘tag’ your opponents to take them out of the game.
Archery Combat Tag is an exciting team based combat sport, exclusive to Insight Activities. We can play indoors or out as our archery arrows have been specifically designed to absorb the impact. Our custom made ‘heads’ absorb the power of the impact, no welts or bruising like with paintball!! We generally run our games in an outdoor woodland environment but are fully mobile and able to run these games indoors too!
Players divide into two teams and are briefed on the ‘mission’. Take cover behind shelters, trees or any other obstacles and aim to be the first team to eliminate the opposition.
Virtually painless- unlike paintball, Archery Combat Tag is a safe, fun, very active and intense archery experience – the most fun you’re ever likely ever have with a bow and arrow!
We will start with a standard Archery session for training purposes then move into the Archery Tag – Combat games area. Game formats will likely include – ‘Back to back Duelling’ – ‘Team Death Match’ – ‘Infected’ – ‘Every man for Himself’ – ‘Capture the Flag’ – ‘Defend the Area’ – we do a lot more too but have to keep that secret on here..:-)
This really is the ‘Hunger games’ for real…Ages 10+.
MEDIEVAL TARGET SPORTS
We operate from two rustic woodland locations. Our Archery ranges in Fordingbridge New Forest and Tolpuddle Dorset use professional quality bows, the same as those used in the Olympics! Our belief is that when introducing a beginner to archery you should offer the best equipment and coaching possible to help ensure success. We offer archery lessons and courses in the New Forest, Hampshire and in Tolpuddle, Dorset.
Our archery range is progressive and accommodates 14 people shooting on the line at any 1 time. We are very keen on keeping people fully active and shooting for the whole session time, no having to share your go. Increase distance, bow power, have a fun competition and shoot for balloons as your archery skills improve. Our archery range is run by a professional ArcheryGB coach.
Fancy yourself as Daryl from the walking dead? We also offer rifle Crossbows for ages 12+, a modern take on traditional archery. Powerful magnified rifle scopes will help you shoot for a zombies head at 25m!
Axe Throwing is an engaging and exciting woodland activity. Our Axes are custom made in the New Forest, beware of imitations! They are truly unique and have been featured on Channel 4, see if you can challenge ‘Freddie Flintoffs’ record. You’ll learn the proper technique – how to wield and ultimately throw the axe to hit a target. Connect with your inner warrior. Our axes have been custom designed and forged by a new forest blacksmith. A safe and fun activity in the new forest and Dorset for all aged 12+.
SEIGE THE CASTLE
This practical session will be lead by an Insight Activities tutor. The aim of the session is for the group, or sub-groups to build their own giant ‘catapult’ with the purpose of shooting projectiles at a ‘Castle’ themed target.
The group will be shown some suggested designs, construction and rope lashing techniques. Its then over to them to collectively decide on their design and construct their siege engine. Let the fun commence!
