Challenge Duels

Settle matters of honour the old-fashioned way with head-to-head battles between two COVID pods!

Challengers formally issue a Shakespearian insult.

Defendants choose the weapons from among Nerf, Laser Tag, Slingshot or Combat Archery. Pods are kept at least two sword-lengths apart at all times. 

Private Arena

Bring your whole COVID pod to do private battle on a 9000 square foot indoor soccer field. Choose from nerf, laser tag or combat archery. Minimum of 6 players. Maximum single-pod group size of 20 players.

Mobile Arena

We will bring Battle Arena to your back yard for private battles among one or two COVID pods. Vehicle access and a nearby power socket required. Inquire by email for more details.

QUICK SUMMARY

EVENTS WE HOST

Nerf Battles

Our Nerf blasters shoot utterly harmless “Rival” foam balls at 100 feet/second. These ain’t yer grandad’s nerf guns. Great fun for kids of all ages!

Laser Tag

Pew pew! Our blasters shoot IR like your TV remote. Harmless. 100% non-contact. Accurate. Long range. No argument about who is hit or out!

Combat Archery

Actual 25# recurve bows shooting foam-tipped safety arrows. Full-face safety masks. Like paintball with bows, but without the pain and welts!

Challenge Duels

Settle matters of honour the old-fashioned way with head-to-head battles between two COVID pods! “Defendant” chooses from Nerf, laser tag, slingshot or combat archery!

Battle Royale Tournament

Start with nothing. Loot weapons, ammo and gear. Tournaments track points as solo, duo or squad. Last one standing wins!

Ultimate Warrior Showdown

A Challenge Duel that rotates matches through all 4 weapon types: archery, nerf, laser and slingshot, ending with a solo Battle Royale!

ABOUT US 

FUN for the Whole Family

At IRL Battle Arena we know games. Life-long gamers of all genres, we have over 3 decades of experience with archery, paintball and other live action combat sports. Drawing heavily from that background we innovate to create safe, family friendly games “In Real Life.”

The equipment we use includes inflatable bunkers to hide behind, low-poundage bows shooting foam-tipped arrows, laser tag pistols, slingshots and nerf blasters shooting harmless foam balls. All games are safe and use soft projectiles that do not hurt like paintball or airsoft, making Battle Arena matches family friendly for adults and young kids alike.

The types of games that we offer run the full gamut of what players have come to expect from online shooters or IRL sports such as paintball, including Capture the Flag, Team Death Match and Battle Royale. No matter your age, we will get your adrenaline pumping and the sweat pouring!

SAVVY

I.R.L.?

“IRL” is an internet acronym for “In Real Life,” as in “sorry guys, I can’t play Fortnite tonight, I‘m going to Battle Arena with my IRL friends!

THE BENEFITS

IRL vs. ONLINE GAMING

EXERCISE!

Childhood obesity is on the rise due to decreased physical activity among kids. Older folks need every excuse to get up from the desk to get their cardio pumping. Like anything else, screen time is fine in moderation, but debilitating in excess. Physical activity improves health, boosts mood and is the single best source of physical and emotional well being across all age groups and demographics.

SOCIALIZATION!

Decades of research in social psychology proves that face-to-face socialization boosts mood, improves health and powerfully contributes to feelings of wellbeing and happiness. Revive old relationships by organizing a private game, or meet new people by registering for one of our public Pick-Up Groups (PUGs). Online socialization is fine for physical distancing during a pandemic, but is not a long-term substitute for the real thing!

WIDE OPEN SPACES + PHYSICAL DISTANCING

COVID-19

SAFETY PLAN

IRL Battle Arena games are held in large, wide open spaces where 6′ physical distancing is easily maintained, making our events among the most “pandemic friendly” group activities currently available.

– Zero physical contact between participants.
– Few or no “high touch” surfaces.
– All games are small (under 25), well under the 50 person provincial maximum.
– Players must bring eye protection or buy inexpensive safety glasses from us.
– All gear is sanitized ahead of time and assigned to a specific player.
– All booking and payment is done online in advance through our website.
– Participants are required to hand sanitize on arrival and between games.

LOCATION

PACIFIC FC 

IRL Battle Arena's primary venue is the absolutely massive 55,000 square foot Pacific FC Island Training Center indoor professional soccer field.

Located at 2888 Kettle Lake Drive in Goldstream, it is just a couple blocks from the #1 Trans-Canada highway, making it a quick trip through the new McKenzie overpass from downtown Victoria.

TOUCHLESS

WAIVER FORM 

All players must fill out and sign a waiver prior to playing any of our games. Players 18 years or older sign on their own behalf, and those under 18 must sign their own form and have a parent or guardian sign the form as well. 

As part of our plan to combat COVID-19 we have implemented a “touchless” waiver form system. Scan the QR code with the camera on your mobile device and fill out the waiver without touching a tablet or pen. Or click the button below on any web-capable device.

To avoid cutting into play time and improve physical distancing at the field we encourage all players to fill out the form before arrival.
