Hit the mark with Archery in Shropshire! The perfect experience for individuals, families and groups alike, this lesson gives you a thorough introduction the noble sport of archery at this multiactivity centre near Oswestry in Shropshire.
To be exact, your session takes place on Rednal Airfield, which is just outside Oswestry and has been transformed into a fun and happening outdoor activity and adventure centre that attracts people from all over Shropshire and beyond and where archery is just one of the recreational activities you can try your hand at. And if you've never had a go before, mark our words, it is actually more difficult than it looks to be a highly accurate archer!
At this friendly and welcoming Shropshire archery venue you will get all the training you need, right from how to pick up the bow, load in the arrow, adopt the correct stance and fire. There is something really quite satisfying about hearing the twang of the wooden bow as you pull back the string, aim and let go, with your eye keenly watching the trajectory of your shot to see if you hit the target spot on. And it will soon bring out the competitive side in you too, as you try and improve your position on the target with each arrow.
And indeed, what we love about this particular archery location in Shropshire is that a little element of friendly competition is introduced. As you will be part of a small group, you will line up alongside your fellow archers to take each other on to see who is the hotshot of the gathering. With the instructors by your side the whole time, the aim is that with each round your scores will get better and better. Just remember the archer's mantra - a steady hand, a good aim and excellent concentration makes for good results.
Our archery in Shropshire sessions are held at a shooting range which is outdoors, so you will be in amongst the local pastureland of Oswestry learning how to hit the bullseye, with elements such as the wind to help or hinder your shot. All the gear you need to get started is provided for you at this Shropshire centre and the experienced archery tutors are some of the very best in the county and incredibly enthusiastic too. A great pastime for all ages to get into.
