Archery is the art, sport, practice, or skill of using a bow to shoot arrows. Historically, Archery has been used for hunting and combat. In modern times, it is mainly a competitive sport and recreational activity.

Our Archery targets are industry standard 60cm straw bosses, mounted on 4ft easles, with the Archer firing from a distance of 30ft+.

Axe Throwing

Similar to Darts, Axe Throwing is a sport in which the competitor throws an axe at a target, attempting for it to spin once and to hit as close as possible to a bullseye.

Axe Throwing is rooted many milenia ago, infamous with the 8th Century Vikings and only recently recognised as sport, thanks to The World Axe Throwing League (WATL).

Our Axe Throwing targets are built to WATL dimensions – standing a massive 9ft tall, 4ft wide – throwers can throw from 12-15ft away, which provides a healthy challenge to keeping all axes on target!
