There are no limits as to who can do archery - it's for everybody regardless of physical ability. It also has numerous health and wellbeing benefits and is well documented as a confidence-boosting sport. Just give it a go!
Most people are introduced to archery though an introductory or taster session, usually held by a club or a disability sport organisation. If you enjoyed it and fancy taking it further, you're encouraged to join a club where you can get coaching and access a wide range of competitions across the UK. There are also tournaments organised specifically for disabled archers.
Most people, regardless of age, gender, ability or disability, can take part in archery as a recreational activity or as a serious sport. The great thing about it is that all archers can shoot together in the same competitions and from the same shooting line. You can go as far as your ambition takes you. If you want to shoot socially at a club, that’s great. If you want more, there is a framework in place to help you achieve your full potential, all the way up to the Paralympic Games!
Clubs provide a wide range of events, most of which are open for anyone to attend. These range from shooting three or six arrows to a six-week beginners’ course.
