What is combat archery?
Archery Games offers combat archery which is played similar to dodgeball - but with bows and soft foam-tipped arrows. This exciting, action-packed game offers the ultimate family-friendly experience that is fun for everyone.
Is there an age restriction?
The recommended age is 10 years old and up - but we have special Youth Hours every Sat/Sun from 9 - 11am where the arena is exclusively reserved for kids ages 7 - 12. For participants who are under 18 years old, parents or guardians must sign the waiver for their minor(s).
What should I wear?
A pair of clean athletic indoor shoes is required to enter the arena. We suggest wearing athletic clothing such as t-shirt and shorts. We also recommend removing all jewellery prior to game play.
For players who wear glasses, we have specially-cut masks for you, but we recommend wearing contacts if you can.
What if I am late for my session?
All players should arrive at least 15 minutes prior to their reserved game time. In the instance where safety training is missed, we may decide at our discretion whether any late arrivals may participate in game play. Please contact us and let us know if you or your group will be late and we will do our best to accommodate. However, arriving late will likely result in less game play time and a limited experience.
What is the cancellation policy?
If you have to cancel or are unable to make your booking, please contact us as soon as possible. We do not require payment at the time of booking but appreciate being informed of cancellations so we can open up the time slot to other players. Payment is optional at time of online booking or can be paid upon arrival at Archery Games.

- 50% charge if cancelled within a week of your booking

Do you sell gift certificates?
Yes we do! Gift certificates are available for purchase online or at the facility.
How long is each session?
Each session is 75 minutes long. This includes 25 minutes of briefing, basic archery training and practice time, and follows by 50 minutes of game play. Players will have opportunities for refreshments or washroom breaks during the halftime break.
I don’t have any archery experience. Can I still play?
No archery experience is required to play. Prior to the actual game play, all players will be provided basic training and sufficient time to practice shooting. A dedicated staff member will help train all players to become champions on the playing field!
Can we bring our own food/drink?
No outside food is allowed - but you can order food from our catering partner, Playback, which is conveniently located next door! Reserve our party tables free of charge for 45 minutes after your game and have hot pizza delivered right to you.
You can easily reserve the tables during the booking process and use our Pizza Order Form to view our menu and place your order. Groups can bring their own snacks and drinks (no alcohol) but there is a $25 charge for bringing in outside food, not from our catering partner.
Food can be ordered by calling us or Playback (613-733-3553) and orders must be made at least 24hrs in advance.
Can I book a private session for my group only?
To block off an entire session during our public hours, the cost is $400 + HST per hour. This session will be entirely private for your group and groups larger than 20 can be accommodated.
We require that all private bookings are paid online or via phone/email and credit card information is provided to secure the booking.
In the case of cancellations without 48 hours notice, the full amount will be charged. Private bookings (over groups of 15 or more), will be charged 50% of the full fee if cancelled within a week of the booking. Individual payment can be accepted at our regular rate of $24 + HST, and a fee of $12 per each missing player will apply.
If you have a larger group or event, please contact us and we will gladly work with you to accommodate. We can also arrange for private bookings outside of our regular hours.
Can you accommodate private events?
For any special or private event, our 8,000 square foot facility will be happy to accommodate. Please contact us to find out more about our corporate packages and private event pricing. We are happy to host for birthday parties, bachelor/bachelorette parties, fundraisers, corporate events, team building or any occasion.
