Here’s some little facts you may not know about Archery!
The bows that we use may look modern but they are based on a design that originated over 3500 years ago! During the middle ages a skilled bowman could release between 10-12 arrows per minute.. that’s an arrow every five/six seconds! At various times in Britain’s history, monarchs have banned the likes of football, bowls and even golf because men were playing these sports rather than practicing archery in their spare time. In fact, during the reign of Henry VIII, every man in the country has to ‘Practice the butts’ after church on Sundays to hone their Archery skills. Come and practice your skills at Blackwell on our Indoor or Outdoor Archery range.
