I have always thought of archery as quite boring and not requiring a great deal of sport. However, in February my friends quite literally dragged me into the sports hall on a Sunday morning to try archery. Of course, I was really disappointed in myself, as most of my shots just missed the target.

However, the archery teacher was only looking forward to help me improve throughout the lesson. By the end of the session I was surprised by how much fun I had. I thoroughly enjoyed my first experience of archery and realised that it is probably one of the hardest sports I have ever tried.

Since then I have been attending archery every week, improving my shooting skills and genuinely having fun. It has become my favourite sport and I look forward to it every single Sunday.

Anyone is welcome to come and try archery no matter if you are just a beginner or a professional; it is a great way to spend a Sunday morning!
