Q: What is Archery Tag?
A: Archery Tag is a sport that is essentially a combination of Archery and Dodgeball where players are tasked with shooting each other with heavily padded boffer arrows to tag one another “Out!”. Most rules from dodgeball carry over into this sport, so things like catching an arrow to take the shooter out is totally legal!

Q: Can we bring our own equipment?
A: We allow players to bring in their own safety equipment as we know not everyone is comfortable with rental masks. All masks must be impact certified. We do not currently allow players to bring in their own bows or boffer arrows.
Q: Do you clean the masks regularly?
A: Every mask is cleaned and wiped down with disinfectant (usually lysol), after every use. As some archery tag facilities are known to cut corners, it is very important to Battle Archery that cleanliness is kept as a vital part of our facility. With over 100 masks, you are assured a cleaned and dry mask each time.
