Archery Warz is the Archery equivalent of Paintball and involves elements of Dodgeball and Laser Tag. We provide an inflatable battlefield and all playing equipment, including full paintball mask, real recurve bows, target spots and foam tipped ‘LARP’ safety arrows.
We operate a fully mobile service from Melbourne, Canberra, Gold Coast, Perth and surrounding regional areas. We can help you source a location or you can use some of the previous locations we have used around town! Some examples of ideal Archery Warz locations are tennis courts, open parks/ovals, reserves, indoor sports courts, function rooms, and convention centres.
The equipment and games are easy to use and our events are suitable for beginners to advanced archers. Throughout the course of your event we will run you through lots of fun game modes including Elimination, Team Death Match, Infection, Last Runner Standing and more.
We have equipment that caters to teenagers through adults, The impact of the arrows is less painful than paintball, but still enough of an impact to get your adrenaline flowing while playing.* Extra fees may apply for travel and venue hire.

Frequently Asked Questions
The impact of our arrows is similar to that of a well hit tennis ball. In general, Archery Warz hurts less than paintball and leaves little to no bruising.
The arrows we use have been safely used for years by Live Action Roleplay groups and further refined as Archery Dodgeball has become more popular as a sport. Our bows are powerful enough to have impact, without presenting any danger to participants. Safety masks must be worn at all times on the battlefield for added protection.
If your group is mostly juniors or particularly worried about the impact of the arrows we also offer softer tipped arrows and less powerful bows.
We currently recommend Archery Warz for Ages 12+. That said, young participants may be allowed to join in (with parental permission) for certain events.
The majority of the people that come and play with us have never picked up a bow before, let alone played Bow Tag games.
Every session starts with a briefing and some target practice. Our equipment is very user friendly and our staff are well trained at making sure that people know how to fire accurately and powerfully enough to make games enjoyable.
Sporting attire is recommended, with closed toe shoes a must. Dress according to the conditions. Bring plenty of water to rehydrate and remember to be sun smart.
Archery Warz can be played in a variety of indoor and outdoor locations. The space required for the game is about that of a basketball court (25m x 15m).
Large parks/ovals, enclosed tennis courts, private properties and single court or netted off indoor sports courts make for great locations. Even large conference rooms and halls can be used.
We are happy to discuss and review any locations put forward. Or you might choose to sue one of our preferred locations around town.
Private bookings start at a minimum of 10 players. If you are an individual or don't have a group that large, you might be interested in buying a ticket to one of our public sessions where we create a game against others.
Archery Warz can be played in most conditions, but we are more than happy to cancel or postpone your event in the event of an unfavourable forecast. We will generally contact you in the lead up to the event and discuss possibilities such as moving days, times or locations (potentially indoors) to avoid the weather. In the event of cancellation, you will receive a full refund of any deposit or monies paid.
