Best Answer

Archery is not a game, and therefore is not played. It is generally an activity that requires its participants to shoot arrows at multiple targets.

Where can archery be played?

Archery can be "played" in almost any field (archery isn't really "played", as with football or baseball, though; archery is "done"), but it is usually done at what is called an archery range. A range is where a series of targets are set up at various distances from the archer, and all the archers using the range shoot from the same place (or line). This way, one archer will not be shooting while another archer is in front of him/her, eliminating the possibility of someone being shot with an arrow. Ranges can be set up both outdoors and a in building, so that archery can be done year-round.
