Hello aspiring Knightsbridge Robin Hoods and Katniss Evedeens!
Who says archery is for the experts? It has now evolved into a social sport which makes it ideal for team building events, and fun activity for family or group of friends. Whether you know the difference between a right-handed from a left-handed compound bow…or not, this should not stop you from having an enjoyable archery experience. Just as long as you have the equipment and proper assistance, you are sure to learn and have lots of fun.
Here are some training centers and clubs that will make your archery experience fun and memorable.
