Archery Mini Games
The soft archery mini games are a selection of mini-games which use the soft foam tipped arrows to shoot over, under, through, into and at a variety of different obstacles. This is a new concept in archery games created here at Discover Archery.
Archery mini games are ideal for parties, team building or for use where the area is too small for traditional archery. Some of the games we would play are ‘Shoot The Hoop’, ‘Tin Can Alley’, ‘Clout’, ‘Balance Ball’, ‘Discus’, ‘Drop Shot’ and ‘Rabbit’; to name a few. We can also use the environment to create new games.
This inflatable hoverball target set can be used in virtually any environment. It can be set up safely inside or outside and only requires a small area of space.
Traditional archery will require an area of 120yds x 50yds to safely shoot into but this hoverball set can be conveniently put up in a local Village Hall, your garden, or at a fête or festival. People will be able to watch or walk safely past or behind the hoverball set without the worry of being struck by a lethal projectile.
Another ancient form of archery, the object of popinjay is to knock artificial birds off their perches. The archer stands near the base of the mast and shoots foam tipped arrows upwards at the targets. This is direct descendent of the practice used by longbow men on ships in port in order to maintain their skill.
We also offer this unique option………Aerial Discs:
Where else can you have the opportunity to safely shoot something out of the sky with a bow and arrow?
Yes, you did read it correctly, Archery Golf! Using the soft foam arrows we can set up a golf course in a field with the aim of knocking a ball off a hoop instead of sinking a ball. Or, alternatively, we can use a golf course and once on the green you can put a ball where the arrow landed and finish with a putter. A great activity in itself or as an addition to any of the archery activities we provide.
Limited only by your imagination…
