The flight of the arrow is as true as the skill and the nerve of the man with the bow.
Take your stag party combat to the next level with an afternoon of Oxford Battlezone Archery. If you've done the air rifle thing, and paintballing is so yesterday, take on an activity that is straight out of Game of Thrones. Is there anything more badass than that?
Before Katniss Everdeen made archery the coolest sport in the world, it was an Olympic Sport that took guts, courage and skill. Then came along Anguy of the Stormlands, on of the Brotherhood Without Banner lads on Game of Thrones. He was the guy that taught Arya stark how to use a bow and he's one of the most kickass characters in season three. Does your stag party have the cojones to take on their sport of choice? You'll have more to shoot at than a stationary target. We're talking archery combat style and it's wild. It's perfect if you want the pace and action of paintballing without the unsightly purple bruises the next day. Come on lads, give it a go!
'Talent hits a target no one else can hit; Genius hits a target no one else can see.' - Arthur Schopenhauer
Never shot a bow before? No problem. When your stag party arrives at the battlefield you'll be met by our expert instructors and game masters. They'll take your stag party through a safety briefing before giving you instructions on how to shoot the bows and play the game. When you're all ready to bring the pain, you'll get into your safety gear, grab a bow and some specially quipped arrows. Don't worry there won't be any kill shots here. The tips of the arrows are made specifically to be used for archery combat.
Play traditional paintball games like capture the flag, rescue the captives, storm the castle and hunt the stag. If you want something to really get the spirit of war surging through your veins, go for last man standing. It's every man for himself and the last one standing doesn't have to buy a round at the bar later! If you're struggling to find a way to get the guys to know each other and bond your boys before the big day, battlezone archery ticks all the boxes. Give it a go!
