Archery GB's Big Weekend in Rutland
Budding bowmen and aspiring archers are being invited to try out archery this weekend.
The event takes place at the Bowmen of Rutland Archery Club at Greetham Valley Golf Club on Saturday and is open to everyone, even those who have never picked up a bow and arrow before.
Archery GB’s Big Weekend, in association with Foresters Friendly Society, will see around 90 clubs across the country open their doors to potential archers.
With around 6,000 members of the public set to take part and around 35,000 arrows to be shot in total, it is going to be a massive and exciting UK wide event.
Not only will visitors be able to try out a new sport, they will also have the opportunity to meet new friends.
At each event there will be plenty of current club members to lend a hand and chat about how they got started in archery.
The Bowmen of Rutland is no exception, it has been running for f42 years and has 96 members, young and old, who take part in archery on a weekly basis.
The Bowmen of Rutland’s outdoor venue is at Greetham Valley Golf Club.
All equipment will be provided, therefore all participants need to do is bring along themselves and plenty of enthusiasm.
It costs just £3 to shoot as many arrows as you like and the event runs from 10am to 4pm.
