If you are looking for a fun, fast-paced, and wet warm-weather activity, you will definitely want to try Splash Tag™! The rules are the same as Archery Tag®, but Splash Tag™ is played with the field set up in water!
John Jackson, creator of combat archery, conceived of the idea of adding the water element when looking at the pond behind his house, “It is large enough for an Archery Tag® field and not very deep. With the summer heat, I thought it would be a lot of fun to splash around shooting at each other with our Archery Tag® bows and arrows. The arrows even float!”
“Our First Annual Splash Tag™ event was held July 25, 2015. We posted a video of the event to our Facebook page and currently have over 6.5 million views. Plus, we have had thousands of comments from around the world,” commented Jackson.
Though a firm date has not been set, he is excited about this year’s Splash Tag™ Tournament. Jackson added that many Archery Tag® Licensees have commented that they plan on adding Splash Tag™ as a combat archery option. “We are excited to see their images and videos,” he remarked.
