Archery is one of the oldest precision sports and is enjoyed by people all over the world. This engaging and versatile team building event is quick to learn and no previous experience is necessary.
Fully qualified instructors supervise the session and delegates can learn this ancient sport by using top quality equipment. With expert tuition, those taking part will quickly learn how to load the bow and can begin putting their accuracy skills to the test.
Archery is an excellent participant activity requiring skill, judgement and hand-eye coordination, making it an ideal team building activity. It’s certainly not as easy as it looks!
The activity is suitable for all abilities, age ranges and levels of fitness, making this activity a very accessible choice for events such as corporate team building, staff away days and hen and stag parties. We also offer this activity for zones at events such as Family Fun Days. Archery is great fun for those who participate, but it is highly amusing for spectators as well.
After some normal archery practice, the targets can then be turned around to reveal a different target containing letters. Paying homage to the famous Hasbro board game, each team member has one arrow to hit a letter and then the team have to make up a whole word from the letters hit on the Scrabble Board. The team with the highest scoring word wins!
Clay Archery or Clay Pigeon Archery is an addictive twist on standard archery. Participants use specially adapted arrows to try and hit foam clay targets. Works well as a standalone activity or alongside standard archery as a finale.
