3. Archery Battle Zone Tag

If you’re looking for something adrenaline-inducing and competitive for your team, then this archery battle zone tag team building activity is a brilliant choice.

Both teams have up to 5 bunkers holding 5 target cones in front of each of them, holding target balls which must be hit by the enemy team.

Like in classic dodgeball, hitting an opposing player will eliminate them from the game. Equally, catching an arrow will give you the opportunity to bring one of your eliminated players back into play.

This is also both a great indoor and outdoor team building activity and does not require any prior knowledge or skill in using a bow and arrow. As you and your team will be provided with an event co-ordinator and all the equipment needed for this team bonding activity.
