- Dorchester (Dorset)
- Gift Voucher valid for 1 Participant
Unleash your inner warrior with this Medieval Sport Trio. You can experience first-hand how things were done in medieval times by participating in Archery, Axe Throwing and Crossbows. Located in the picturesque Dorset countryside, you can get a feel of these traditional sporting activities the way they should be.
Arriving at the centre, you will meet your
group in the car park, where you will taken to the shooting ranges
for your activities. Beginning with Archery, you will receive
expert tuition from a professional ArcheryGB coach. You will be
trained to hit targets from up to 20m away and practise your aim by
shooting small balloons.
Once you are confident in Archery you can go up a level to Crossbows. If you are a fan of The Walking Dead, this is sure to make you feel like you’re the next Daryl! You will be aiming at zombies from a 25m distance, with the help of the magnified scope you will definitely succeed in hitting bullseye - or in this case - the zombie’s head!
Once you’ve mastered the crossbow, you can move onto the rugged activity that is Axe Throwing! You will learn this ancient skill with custom designed unique battle axes that have been forged by a local New Forest blacksmith.
Once you have had a go at each of the activities and still want more, you can work your way around the activities at your own pace. You may want to focus on perfecting your throw, hitting those balloon targets by engaging in your inner Robin Hood, or concentrate on getting those zombies with the more modern alternative, the Crossbow.
