Our archery lessons concentrate on helping you to relax, get in tune with your breathing and ‘in the zone’. The arrows and the target come later- and when you are more relaxed, they are a lot quicker to play ball.
Archery is a bit more than a random sport practiced on your tod in the middle of a field. It is a step back into your past, discovering how things used to be done. Learning to draw and release a bow is an instinctive task that can come back to you very easily.
Many indigenous cultures such as Amazonian tribes-people still use archery to hunt on a daily basis-so the skills to use a bow very effectively are somewhere buried in your genes.
Archery is a solo sport, but one works well for a group of people out for a day together and it can be incredible fun for children and adults alike. It is easy to adapt for wheel-chair users and people with accessibility needs. In fact archery creates a level playing field among people and is generally a non-competitive and encouraging sports environment.
