Traditional Archery (Age 12 +)
The team will start by familiarising you with bows, arrows and the range. Then you'll move on to firing and developing the technique to aim.
They use a bare bow which means it hasn’t got all the bells and whistles of an Olympic Archer and your instructors will concentrate helping you develop a base skill and an understanding of the raw techniques of aiming and firing.
During your session you will play a number of games with a competitive element.
Crossbows (Age 12 +)
These are trigger operated with a sight much like a rifle, so accuracy can be achieved more quickly than archery and these sessions are run in the indoor range.
Your instructor will ensure you have a fun day learning how the crossbow works, and help you to hone your skills throughout the session.
Hover Force's crossbows have been specifically developed for their use.
Combat Archery (Ages 12 +)
This is a group based game played very much like dodgeball with two teams shooting it out.
The arrows are foam capped so don't worry, it doesn’t hurt!
If you shoot someone from the opposite team they go out of the game.
If you shoot a spot from a target board then you can get team members who are out, back in the game.
If you catch an arrow from the opposing team then the shooter goes out and a member of your team who is ‘out’ comes back into the game.
You need a minimum of 8 people to play and as it involves hitting other people, it's only suitable for closed groups that all know each other.
Open 7 days a week all year round Hover Force has a host of other thrill seeking activities to suit everyone such as:
Fun Group Activities like Duck Herding & Old School Sports Days
The site has free parking, changing rooms and toilets and a covered area with picnic tables to take a well earned rest and fuel up your tank. Refreshments are available via a hot food van provided by Chester's very own Chip'd.
