Archery is one of the fast growing sports in the UK, it captures the imagination of over 34,000 members of Archery GB and many more at 'have a go' archery events at activity centres, holiday parks, game fairs, outdoor shows and tourist attractions across the UK. It is a sport for all, providing opportunities whatever age and ability.

A very inclusive and social sport, archery attracts seniors, juniors, young and old as well as able and disabled all shooting and competing together. You may even come across a whole family shooting at a club or at the same tournament as a large number of parents, children and often grandchildren are members of Archery GB.

You may be seeking more of a sporting or technical challenge. Archery competitions range from county through national to world levels. Equipment can be very technical and top archers use high speed cameras in their training. Intensity and focus, dedication and discipline are as important in archery as precision and accuracy in shooting.

Whatever your need, you will find that archery provides a balance between fun and fitness no matter what your ability.

There is more information provided here on our history, how archery caters for everyone, and what happens in the UK. If you just want to skip to finding where to participate, then please continue to Next Steps.

If your interest is not personal and you would like any information about Archery for Schools, contact Kate Moss National Schools and Young People Development Coordinator.
