The Olympic sport of archery is always a winner on team building and away days. It takes skill, sound judgement, coordination and icy cool in the face of pressure to hit the target. Master the basics of this ancient country sport and unleash your inner Robin Hood.
Anyone can try archery, with beginners learning the basics and those with experience under their belts, sharpening their existing skills. When everyone's up to speed, the instructors will get a little target shooting competition going.
Round up your band of merry men and maids for team building, old school style!

Assume the proper archery stance, nock the arrow, hold it light on the string with three fingers, raise the bow, draw, aim, release, move your hand back and watch the arrow whiz through the air and hit the target with a huge 'thwack'! The goal is to combine the 12 steps in one smooth continuous move and hopefully hit the bullseye into the bargain.
When everyone's up to speed it's time to get competitive. The instructors will split the group into teams for a competitive shootout. There's a bottle of bubbly in it for the winners.
