Coronavirus, an update from Active Cornwall

Give Archery a go at Archery GB's Big Weekend!

Dr 27698018fadd98a914d37f98c7e8974b

Budding bowmen and aspiring archers are invited to try out archery at their local club on the weekend of 16-18th June 2017 - even if they have never picked up a bow and arrow before.

Archery GB's Big Weekend, in association with Foresters Friendly Society, will see more than 60 clubs across the country open their doors to potential archers. With over 5,000 members of the public set to take part and around 30,000 arrows to be shot in total, this is sure to be a massive UK wide event.

Not only will visitors be able to try out a new sport, they will also have the opportunity to get involved in their local community and meet new friends - at each event there will be plenty of current club members to lend a hand and chat about how they got started in archery. Archery is a fun and friendly sport for both young and old to take part in together, and with many clubs providing facilities for disabled archers too, it is a very inclusive sport.

All equipment will be provided, therefore all participants need to do is bring along themselves and plenty of enthusiasm. Families are welcome to come along and enjoy a day out in the spring sunshine.
