Archery Tag at the Beach


It’s a battle in the sand!
The Beach Volleyball Centre is the only licensee of Archery Tag in Manitoba
Archery Tag® is an integration of three heart pumping and thrill-seeking sports of paintball, dodgeball and archery.

How It Works

Standard Archery Tag Game Rules:
Tag to eliminate all opposing players until no one is left
Shoot out opposing side’s 5-Spot Target
Team with fewest missing targets at the end of the round

Official Archery Tag Bow and Arrow Kit (No outside bows or arrows allowed of any kind)
Face Mask and Arm Guard (Outside mask allowed however must be approved by staff before playing)
Bunkers and Obstacles
5-Spot Target

No shoes allowed on sand courts

Game Set-up:
Two opposing sides across from each other with a 10 feet safe zone separating both sides.

Safe Zone:
Players may not shoot from or be hit within the safe zone. Players may not cross to the opposing side during regulation play. Players may retrieve arrows within safety zone but must return to their side. Players are only allowed 5 seconds in the safety zone.

How to Play:
Each team is to stay on their own side of the playing field and CANNOT cross onto opponent’s side at any time during regulation play. A “tagged player” is made when an arrow hits any part of the body from an opposing player on the opposing side’s zone. Tagged players must wait on the side, mask must still be worn at all times when in playing field.

Tagged players can re-enter the game in two ways (only one teammate can re-enter for each occurrence):

  1. A teammate catches an arrow in flight. If a teammate makes contact with an arrow and fails to catch it, he/she are eliminated.
  2. A teammate knocks out one of the opposing 5-spot targets

Ricochets do not count as hits.

Have FUN! Enjoy and respect everyone.
