Description: Great fun for children 10 and over. Parking, tuition and use of equipment all included in the price. After basic instruction, there is some practice and then games with prizes once the level of skill has improved. It was interesting to watch how quickly the kids became confident in their ability and how determined to improve their skill level. They also showed a lot of good sportsmanship with each other, cheering on children previously unknown. This is the perfect way to trial the sport of archery, as it is less than the cost of a casual visit.
Make a day of it and have lunch outdoors in the picnic area before or after your session.
Try something new these school holidays - you never know where it will take you. It is an Olympic Venue, after all...
