Have you ever fancied your chances in the heat of battle, armed with a bow and arrow? We haven’t either, but this is your chance to test your archery skills and to learn from some of the best coaches in the UK.
Did you know that evidence of bows and arrows have been found as far back as 2430BC, making archery one of the oldest sports in the world – and you will learn how this historic skill is accessible to all, whether you are 8 or 80. We will tailor this experience to suit your specific needs over the course of 90 minutes. You will start by getting kitted out, whilst being given a short safety briefing and a demonstration of the correct shooting technique using recurve bows. You will have the chance to practice safely and confidently, and after you’ve got your eye in and are hitting bullseyes for fun, your coach will teach you how to score like a professional. To finish off the session you’ll compete in The Battle of the Bows! Each group member is taught individually, and you will hone your technique and be given pointers throughout the session to make sure that everyone has a great experience. Archery is as much about focusing the mind as it is the body and it certainly has a meditative quality about it. This ancient art also has many transferable skills in everyday life, making it the perfect experience for groups of friends and family to enjoy and benefit from.
