Try archery for free in Birmingham at new archery club

A Commonwealth Games funded initiative is bringing archery to Birmingham with free taster sessions to get you started.

The sessions will give people the chance to find out about a new archery club, Crescent Archers, have a go at the sport and sign up for a beginners' course.

No experience is necessary, and no booking is required but you must be at least 10 years old to take part.

The experience will take place on Sunday 20 November with two opportunities to take part at 1pm and 2pm at Ackers Adventure, Golden Hillock Road, Sparkbrook, Birmingham, B11 2PY.

The event will be delivered by qualified Archery GB instructors and coaches and all equipment will be provided.

The day is being funded by the Birmingham Commonwealth Games Legacy fund which is aimed at supporting the drive towards reducing inequalities in sport.

So far, the project has delivered archery to over 900 participants, and helped people develop a love for the sport.

Jamila Bi, Archery GB Legacy Co-ordinator, has stablished firm links with several organisations such as StreetGames, Muslim Sport Foundation, Association for Muslim Schools and Saheli Hubb.

Jamila said: "I am a firm believer in making archery accessible to all, especially to young people.

"I love archery and am passionate about providing opportunities to communities across the West Midlands to try this amazing and spiritual sport and to help them to continue their journey as a participant, volunteer, instructor or coach."
