With the Easter school holidays not all that far away, now is the perfect time to visit, try your hand and consider taking up the ancient skills of target shooting, archery and so much more.
In a recent poll conducted by 1066 Target Sports members and visitors were asked which target sport they preferred: archery or air rifle shooting. Archery won the day with 57% of the vote, whilst air rifle shooting came in a fairly close second with 43%. Clearly, the bows and arrows of our English heritage - synonymous with 1066 - shone through!
Archery is the world's first shooting sport with its foundations way back in the Stone Age, and it's as fulfilling now as it ever has been. With 1066 Target Sports and its outstanding archery facilities right on our doorstep it's even more accessible.
Archery is skillful, safe and available in all weathers thanks to being indoors at 1066 Target Sports. Take up your position, draw the bow, take aim, and release the arrow and with practice, you can hit the gold. Under expert tuition and guidance archery can become a personal sporting prowess shared with many other like-minded people of all ages. Of course it's also an Olympic and Paralympic sport... could that be something to aim for?!
