Give the bride a single life send off that would make Maid Marian proud with an afternoon of Oxford Archery. If you've got a bride on your hands that loves the great outdoors and a good challenge, you'll have that and more.
Archery is a brilliant activity for bonding a wedding party that has a group of girls who don't know each other very well. Don't worry if you've never held a bow, let alone done some target shooting. You'll quickly come to grips with how to handle this Olympic sport and before you know it, you'll be plugging away like Katniss Everdeen! Archery is really simple. You'll need to keep a cool head under pressure and the satisfaction you get when you hear the ‘thud' of the arrow hitting the target is exhilarating. So roll the girls out of bed, head them off when they go for the bars and take a quick trip just outside the city to our brilliant outdoor activity centre.
Our event centre is located in 15 acres of verdant woodland. It's the perfect setting for this Robin Hood style sport. When you get there our friendly instructors will take you through a safety briefing and give your hen party instruction on how to stand and how to aim, nock and release the arrow towards the target. When you've got the basics down, it's time for a practice round. Oh there are a few surprises, because this isn't just your bog standard afternoon of archery, ladies. The targets aren't the standard ones. We've got targets that explode when hit, they'll pop up like the ones in combat training and there are even ones that move along the range for a more challenging experience. So perfect your warrior technique before it comes to the big showdown in the competition round!
Two to four girls can step up to the platform and take their shots. Keep your eye on the prize and aim true. Only one girl can come out as the Queen of Archery! When you're done doing the Katniss Everdeen thing, return to the city with plenty of time to do a bit of sightseeing before you hit the bars, pubs and clubs of George Street. Brilliant!
