What is Boffer?

Boffer is an exciting and safe combat sport that combines the thrill of swordplay with the camaraderie of team-based games. Using foam-padded swords and shields, participants engage in simulated battles, honing their skills in swordsmanship, strategy, and teamwork.

Whether you’re a beginner or an experienced warrior, boffer offers a unique and immersive experience that promotes physical activity, discipline, and a sense of adventure. Join us at the Youth Boffer League and embark on an epic journey of fun, friendship, and fierce competition!
