Come down and try Vision Impaired Archery!
We are fortunate to have a professional instructor to give one-to-one coaching and all equipment is provided along with a tactile aiming guide and foot locater so that totally blind shooters can take meaningful part in the sport.
We welcome all members and the age of shooters ranges from as young as ten if accompanied. Our regular Vision Impaired Archery session now take place on the second Sunday of the month from 12 noon to 2 pm. But please do check the event calendar as sometimes the date needs to be changed.
