Archery with a Twist
Feature Archery offers a unique take on the traditional Target Archery games.
Feature Archery is a fun and challenging alternative to our usual target archery activities, taking even the most experienced archer out of their comfort zone in a range of unique scenarios with different rules and scoring systems.
Feature Archery is suitable for groups of all sizes and ages. We have junior bows available for young archers.
Feature Archery can be booked as a stand-alone activity or it can be added to additional activities to make for a fun day out.
Our Archery games can also be hired for offsite events to add that bit extra to a party or celebration!
Your Feature Archery Session
Your Feature Archery session will begin with our expert instructors taking you through the rules of the games whilst practising your technique and giving you tips along the way in order to get the most fun out of your session. Each session can last around 35-50 minutes, depending on the group size.
An entire deck is taped to the target face, face down. Archers have 5 attempts to hit the cards, with the winner being the archer with the best hand.
Archers must hit the red circle on the target face, followed by a coloured circle and try to build as big a break as possible. The turn switches to the next player when the archer missed their target.
Similar to the Snookery game except there are only two coloured circles on the target face. The first player to hit all their circles and the black circle wins.
Players take turns being the penalty taker and the goalkeeper. The first player to go shoots at a marker on the target face and the second player has to hit the same marker to save the penalty.
Archers will shoot at increasing sized fruit targets, the larger the piece of fruit the less points it is worth.
Archers shoot at enlarged dartboard target face, normal darts rules apply. Archers are dviided into teams with each player have three arrows each and the score is recorded at the end of each round.
Playing cards are stuck to the target face, face down, with archers having two attempts to hit two cards. The winner will be the player with the hand closes to 21 .
Each archer will have six arrows and after taking their shots will pick a slip out of the Lucky Dip bag revealing their scoring instructions, meaning the archer will have no idea what their score while they are shooting.
