Unleash your inner Katniss or Legolas with these archery clubs in Singapore
Whether you’re inspired by bow-wielding heroes in fantasy flicks or just want to try sports that look cool, archery is worth a shot trying. Formerly a traditional skill to have, old-school archery has become a lot less about hunting and instincts but more on accuracy and precision when it comes to hitting the targets.
Still, it’s still quite an uncommon sport and an even more uncommon sight to see someone lugging around a bow and arrow. Want to pick up this old-school sport? Here’s where to learn archery in Singapore.
