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.
To find out why more and more women are taking up the sport, listen to this clip taken from BBC's Radio 4 Woman's Hour (starting at 28.40).
