Disability Archery Competition - Friday 27th Jan 2017

We held our first monthly competition for the participants at our Friday Archery session. There were 25 competitors covering a wide range of ages and abilities.

Participants compete against the other archers that regularly shoot at the same target length each week. This means each month we will have up to 4 champions;
• Specially Adapted Platform users
• Independent full length (20yds)
• Independent/supported mid-range (15yds)
• Supported short distance (10yds)

Each colour on the target has a set points score and each Archer is scored for twelve arrows to gain a total score.

The picture on the left shows three of our first four monthly winners for January 2017. Well done to them but also to everyone who takes part on a weekly basis as they have all shown great improvements.

Our next competition will be on Friday 24th Feb 2017, 11am-12.30pm at Focus Community Centre.

Archery suitable for everybody, even those in a wheelchair!

The popular Paralympic sport is now available at Vivacity!

Through support from Living Sport and the Sportivate project, we have been able to start offering archery tasters to people with a disability. We have some dedicated archery leaders on hand to help the participants to find a way of shooting that works for them.

Our archery equipment is created by Remap and Demand, two charities that specialise in developing speicific equipment to suite a particular need. You can also get more information about archery from British Wheelchair Archery Association

We are also developing a great partnership with Invictus Bowmen to create a pathway for disabled people to move into a club environment and competitions, if that’s what individuals would like to do.
