Archery – Raise, Aim, Let It Fly

If you think you could be a modern day Robin Hood or Maid Marian then why not come along to one of our archery sessions and find out!

Archery is an ancient art, employed in hunting and battle since the earliest of times. A fun Olympic sport, target archery requires dexterity, control and precision. Although archery is often perceived as a stationary sport, competitive archers actually require a significant amount of strength, endurance and focus to perform well.

Our flexible target ranges are geared to each age group, and our trained instructors concentrate on developing technique using modern recurve bows, matched to individual strength, size and age.


Archery is suitable from the age of eight and, with a variety of different sized bows, we can equip you with the right kit to hit the target each time. You will be playing games and competitions, popping balloons and hitting bullseye.

The hour-long sessions are perfect for couples, families, friends and birthday parties. As with all our activities, a thorough safety briefing takes place beforehand and all safety equipment such as arm braces are supplied.

Check our range of activities at South Lake Watersports Centre and Craigavon Golf & Ski Centre and combine an archery session with an hour of another water or land-based activity.

We will have regular archery sessions in South Lake Leisure Centre with Craigavon Archery Club providing tuition to participants of all ages and abilities. Coming soon!

South Lake Watersports Centre and Craigavon Golf & Ski Centre offer a range of group activities for those who want to bring a party together. These include activities for schools, youth groups, corporate or team building activities, as well as birthday, stag and hen parties.

Archery is a brilliant way to help children and young people develop skills in areas such as communication, leadership, problem solving and teamwork. Our staff have a wealth of experience working with young people from a variety of backgrounds and recognise the value of learning outside the classroom, developing self-confidence, trust in others and resilience.

South Lake Watersports Centre and Craigavon Golf & Ski Centre regularly run Outdoor Activity Days, along with multi-day activity camps during the holiday periods. Bring your child along for an action-packed day, filled with land and water adventure and delivered by our experienced team. These days are suitable for children aged 8-15 years of age and please keep an eye on our website and social media pages for details of upcoming events.
