Aspiring archers in Leicester-Shire & Rutland invited to take a bow

Those looking for a new sporting challenge are invited to try out archery at their local club over the 29-31 May. Visitors are invited to come along to see if they can hit the target and get a golden ten.

In its fourth year, Archery GB's Big Weekend, in association with Foresters Friendly Society, enables the public to try a new sport. Hosted at over 60 clubs, attendees will have the opportunity to join thousands of archers across the UK at the biggest archery weekend of the year, where regular club members are looking forward to sharing their passion for archery with visitors.

Archery is an extremely inclusive sport and welcomes both young and old, men and women, and also many clubs provide facilities for disabled archers. Visitors to Archery GB's Big Weekend not only have the chance to try out a new sport, they will also have the opportunity to get involved in their local community and meet new friends.

All equipment will be provided, so all participants need to do is bring themselves and plenty of enthusiasm*. Club members will be able to lend a hand and share stories about how they started in archery. Families are welcome to come along and enjoy a day out in the spring sunshine.
