The legacy of archery in Nottingham is becoming even richer as more and more of its residents get involved in the build-up to the European Archery Championships, which is being hosted by the city in May.
Archery GB is busy taking the sport out into the community - and the sense of excitement is becoming infectious! The latest to be bitten by the archery bug are mothers and daughters at the Carlton Central Primary School.
They have been taking part in archery sessions, which culminated in their own mini European Championships where participants competed in teams for a trophy and the honour of winning!
The sessions were a huge success with great numbers every week and now the school is actively considering starting up a club.
And don't forget, you can get involved in the European Archery Championships whether you live in Nottingham or not. Tickets are now on sale for the event, held in association with The Nottingham Building Society, which will see hundreds of top archers from across the continent gather for one of the last chances to secure a place at the Rio Olympics.
The championship will take place at two locations in the city, commencing with the qualification and elimination rounds at the University of Nottingham's Highfields playing fields from 23-27 May. The head-to-head finals will then be hosted in a 1,500-spectator purpose-built archery arena in the heart of the city in Old Market Square on the weekend of 28-29 May.
