It only takes a short time to pick up the basics of the ancient art of archery but a lifetime to master. It is an addictive activity that suits all ages, levels of fitness and physical ability.
Obviously safety is paramount so our qualified and experienced archery instructors will begin the session with a range safety briefing that explains waiting area, shooting line, target area, safe handling of bows and how to retrieve and carry arrows.
Once the basics of safely loading, drawing and shooting have been achieved the group can practise and compete at a selection of targets and different distances and enjoy various archery games.
Our purpose built, covered range allows groups to shoot comfortably come rain or shine.
