Home » About us

We are a group of friends who are passionate about both archery and research.

My name is John. During the first lockdown of 2020, myself and a group of friends decided to take up archery as a hobby. We are avid sport enthusiasts who also have careers working for research organisations. Without classes, ranges or shops open to aid us in how to get started with archery; we had to teach ourselves at home – shooting at makeshift targets in our back garden.

To improve our accuracy, we researched through thousands of archery blogs, videos and books to learn the best theory to aid our practice. We found a lot of conflicting information, as most archery coaches believe that their way is the right way, when in reality archery is much more of a personal journey. Everyone is different. But not everyone wants to spend thousands of hours researching online, especially when the majority of resources are full of complicated jargon!

That’s why we built this blog – to consolidate the best information from our research in a format that is easy for the average person to digest. The blog will also include information on the best classes, shops and coaches we’ve tried in the U.K. as well as the best equipment for you to use that you can actually buy in the U.K. too.

Any questions? Just email us.

We were very fortunate to have a big garden during lockdown! Note: we had no neighbours bordering our garden and large open space on either side; otherwise this may have been unsafe!
