What Can I Expect
There's a bit of twist when you have a go at archery in Hertfordshire. You will be taking part in a 'bare bow' archery session that basically means the recurve bows you'll be using don't have sights on them, so it's all about using your co-ordination and balance to line up your shots.
This family-owned and run centre at the rather lovely Three Lakes Leisure park near Ware in Hertfordshire has made sure the emphasis is most definitely on fun, whilst ensuring you have all the latest top-notch archery gear to play with. So that means modern ally tube arrows and those wooden recurve bows.
You'll be aiming at competition standard, full-sized targets either indoors or outdoors. The teaching here in Hertfordshire is also second to none, as tutors are fully GNAS (Grand National Archery Society) qualified, so you're sure to progress quickly. The venue has an excellent range of bows ready to be used on this introductory experiences and one will be handpicked with the right amount of pull needed to fire an arrow, according to your age, strength and build.
With the range of archery kit on offer, children from the age of 10 upwards can enjoy these archery experiences so you can make it a proper family day out in Hertfordshire. We sell vouchers for one, two or groups of up to eight people and you will be part of a small group for your session, but a voucher for eight of you will mean you get exclusive use of this range overlooking the lakes, so you can heckle and cajole to your heart's content!
Once you've got the hang of archery, the experience ends with a competition-style round of 16 arrows, with the highest scorer being the announced the master or mistress of the arrows of archery in Hertfordshire, for that little splash of competitiveness.
