Our team testing out activities
If you fancy yourself as a bit of a Robin Hood character, and you’re interested in practicing your aim and fire with your group of merry men, then we definitely recommend that you get a session of archery booked in for your stag weekend. It’s an ancient sport which dates back many centuries, and although you may think it looks like an easy activity, archery requires a steady hand, in addition to copious amount of concentration; so it’s essential that you pay full attention to your instructor, who will give top tips on how to perfect your technique, a quick demonstration and a safety briefing featuring those all-important do’s and don’ts. Get ready for your competitive streak to emerge amongst your group of stags and see who will be the first lad to hit a bullseye. We offer archery sessions across a whole host of popular destinations across the UK, so you’ll have a whole load of choices to pick from. So, pick up your bow and arrow, and get ready to get fired up for one memorable stag activity – and lets us tell you now, there’s certainly no chance of firing blanks with this one!
The bow and arrow has been around for pretty much as long as us humans and has been instrumental in assisting man to make sure there is meat on the table for dinner. Not a lot has changed in its design over the centuries, but then again why would you want to reinvent the wheel? Robin Hood is probably the most famous fictional archer, even perfecting his shot to splitting arrows in two. William Tell was equally skilled but preferred a cross-bow, apples, and shooting at kids.
You and your mates however will get the more socially acceptable and far less weird option of taking aim at targets. There will be a safety and instructional talk before you begin, so make sure you pay attention and take note of any tips. Dependant on your group size you may have to take turns but everyone will be kitted out with the proper equipment (just make sure to wear clothing and outwear suitable for the outdoors).
If you fancy mixing things up a bit though, how about taking part in some Xtreme Archery on the stag do? It’s a combination of archery and dodgeball and is a newcomer to the stag activity scene that’s ideal for those lads that want an adrenaline packed weekend! You’ll be given a safety briefing from an experienced instructor and provided with all the necessary safety equipment, before being split into teams where you’ll face off across a purpose built field layout.
Each team gets five specially designed bunkers, and five target cones that are placed in front of each bunker which contain a ball. It’s a strategy game based on point scoring, where players will have the chance to shoot at one another with specially designed arrows for a good old fashioned shoot em’ up – but don’t worry, because the arrows you’ll be using have a round rubber tip which absorbs the impact when it hits a player, so you’ll be safe and there’s no chance of severing your mates’ major arteries.
There will be 30 points awarded for each eliminated player and 50 points for a targeted cone. The game ends when either all the players have been eliminated, all cones have been hit, or the time runs out - Let the battle commence!
Newcastle know how to party and that's exactly what we wanted in a stag do destination!
The package put together by The Stag Company was spot on with the accommodation just what was needed....a comfy nights sleep (well a couple of hours) and a bit of breakie. The club entry on the first night was spot on and gave us an idea of why to expect the following night. The whole booking and payment experience was perfect and the online system makes life easy. All in all a 10 out of 10 experience. - Kyle Matravers (Stag Company Trust Pilot)
