Open air Axe throwing and Archery combo (Aragorn package)

At the mercy of mother nature, no tents included.

Open air axe throwing and Archery combo set up. Have your cake and eat it! This combination, named the Aragorn package comprises of 2 - 6 axe throwing targets and 2 - 6 Archery targets. If you location has the space we will set all the targets up in a row side by side. If space is limited we can start with axes and then replace the targets with the Archery ones or vice versa. The throwing distance for the axes will always be around 12-14 ft but the Archery line will be set depending on the space available at your location. Safety netting will be provided as always behind the axe targets and specialised back stop netting behind the archery targets. 3 different axes per target will be provided as well as score cards and tutoring. For the Archery part, bows, arrows, arm guards, target faces, score cards and of course tutoring will be provided. We supply everything you need so all you have to do is arrive. 

Axe throwing is as satisfying as it is fun. Suitable for ages 10+ all genders and abilities. It's all about technique not strength! Although we do have axes of different weights for anyone who finds our default range a little heavy. We designed and build our own targets in house. Made from solid pine they are sturdy and durable, fold completely flat and all parts are easily replaceable so we can keep them in top order for all of our customers. They are heavy enough to not need anchoring down but allow just enough movement to absorb the impact of over or under rotated axes and eliminate the risk of bounce backs making them much safer for the thrower. They are set up around 12 feet from the throwing line allowing for a single rotation throw. The target face measures 90cm wide and 95cm high(total height of target including the stand is 180cm) The face features a red 4 inch bullseye and 4 x 2 inch scoring rings moving outward. Scoring default is 6 for bullseye then 4 then 3 then 2 then 1 for each ring. Score cards will be provided on the day to encourage that competitive spirit as well as various games and a head 2 head knockout for the finale. Open Air Axe throwing is available all year round but more suited to spring and summer months.

Archery has been a part of our heritage for an age. Used for hunting and battle it proved to be a highly effective weapon. Although we don't practice this anymore(at least here in England) we do still love a bit of stick flinging. Drawing that bow, taking aim, loose the arrow and hitting that bullseye is just so satisfying and rewarding.

(Note we cater for age 8 and over for the Archery but the axe throwing is 10+) 

The targets we use are layered foam Egertec bosses. As much as we would love to use the round straw bosses fo their aesthetics we chose to go with the foam for a few reasons, but mostly because they are far more resistant to wet weather. They are also suitable for higher(adult) and lower(junior) power bows which makes them an ideal choice for us as we cater for individuals 8 years and over, all genders and abilities. We provide new target faces for every booking and anchor down the bosses for safety. The bows we supply are ambidextrous so they are suited to RH and LH archers. We have adult size and also junior size bows. We don't use stabilisers or sights etc on our bows. Its far more fun to do it the traditional way and use our instincts to find that perfect shot. We supply various target faces for the games. Usually start with a large face with a large bullseye then gradually get smaller. This will act as if the targets are getting moved further away and also set new goals and boost that determination to get back into that gold circle. Friendly competition is always encouraged here at Axes & Arrows. Open Air Archery is available all year round but more suited to spring and summer months. We would need to arrive 90 minutes prior to the start time in order to set up.
