Types Of Archery We Offer
Target archery is the most recognised and popular form of archery in the world. Shot on an outdoor course at distances up to 90m. It is used at the Olympic and Paralympic Games. All types of bows can be used – Recurve, Compound, and Traditional.
Indoor archery is a variation of target archery. Shot mostly during the winter at short distances generally 18 meters. With a slim margin of error, for many archers it’s not just about beating the competition; it’s about shooting perfect scores. Also suitable for all types of bow.
Field archers shoot at animal or circular target faces. Targets are set at different distances, heights and angles around a course of a natural terrain. Used to improve the techniques and fitness required for bowhunting in a realistic wilderness setting. Archers sometimes refer to the additional skills required to deal with challenging terrain, lighting and weather conditions as "field-craft". All types of bow can be used – Recurve, Compound, and Traditional.
