The most important and essential piece of protective gear that you need are safety masks. The Melbourne Arena is fully stocked with If you wish to provide your own mask, it must be a goggle covering a minimum of the eyes and face, and securely fastened around the head with a band. The mask must be meet the ASTM standards for impact resistance and resilience. The mask must be worn at all times whilst a game is in progress.
Knee and elbow pads are permitted to be worn, but must be of soft construction and non abrasive.
Players are permitted to wear bracers or armguards in order to protect their arms from bruising inflicted by the bow string.
Referees have the final say on whether or not the protective equipment is of an acceptable standard.
At this point, the only bows that players are permitted to use are the recurve bows provided by Archery Attack which have a draw strength of no more than 30 pounds. Recurve bows, by design, place greater strain on the materials used by the bow.
Combat Archery, by its very nature, also has a higher risk of having the bow bump into other objects, in comparison to target archery. As a direct result, only the bows provided by Archery Attack are permitted for use due to the strict quality control that ensures safety of each bow.
Only arrows supplied by Archery Attack are permitted for use. These arrows are specifically designed for Combat Archery use, and have been rigorously tested to meet our safety standards.
Sale of gear is only open to current, paid league members. Please ensure that you are logged in before making a purchase.
