If you are looking for an outdoor activity to enjoy with the whole family, then archery could be the sport for you. Walking the outdoor ranges provides exercise, and the opportunity to enjoy fresh air and sunshine. Archery promotes good upper body strength, good eye-hand coordination, and teaches discipline and concentration.
There are two clubs in the Northern Territory that are affiliated with the Australian Bowhunters Association Inc (ABA). Each club is an incorporated non profit organisation. They are reliant on the volunteer support of their members to provide shoots, training and facilities.
Equipment is varied and ranges from high tech compound bows to traditional longbows with timber arrows and feathered fletching. Each club has bows and arrows which can be borrowed by beginners. Accredited coaches are available to give advice on the various types of equipment available and where to shop, as well as how to safely use your archery equipment.
