This wonderful archery taster session for two is a fantastic way

minute introductory archery lesson, you'll be taught how to handle
a bow and arrow and how to hit targets, Robin Hood style!
Archery is a very old, and very cool sport. Okay, so we don't tend to use it to catch our own food anymore, but anyone who's read or seen the Hunger Games will know what a valuable skill it is to have... just in case! This taster archery session in Leicestershire will equip you with basic archery skills, getting you familiar and comfortable with a bow and arrow, and able to fire those arrows into your target. The session begins with your instructor giving the group a full safety briefing, as well as an introduction to the ancient sport of archery; then you'll head to the range to get shooting. The first important thing you'll learn is to get your stance right and to hold the weapon properly. Once you've gotten those all-important basics down, it's all about focus - and a steady hand - as you fire those arrows at the target, hoping to hit the bulls-eye. You instructors will be beside you throughout the experience, to help you with any difficulties you have - and maybe even introduce a little healthy competition into the mix!
This is a wonderful way to spend an afternoon and archery is a truly fantastic sport to get into, so if you've always wanted to try it - or you know someone who has - aim for this archery taster session in Leicestershire!

This was a really enjoyable archery lesson! I'd only tried archery once before, but our awesome instructor made me feel really comfortable and I even managed to beat all of my colleagues when we played the games! Would definitely recommend to anyone.
This archery experience was great fun. Perfect for beginners as there are plenty of rounds to ensure you get lots of practise. Highly recommend it!
Would highly recommend this archery experience for anyone who's interested in the sport, or just having a go at something new! We had a fantastic instructor who really helped us improve, and the competitive games we played made it extra enjoyable.
Very good introductory course.
