What is Archery?

Archery is an official Olympic sport that involves shooting arrows from a bow. The aim of archery is to shoot a target in order to acquire points. 

There are 4 types of archery, which are target, field, clout shooting and flight archery. MadMax Adventures usually focuses on target archery, possibly the most common type of archery that is known globally. 

Archery Shooting Tips

  • Stay calm. The calmer you are, the less your arm will instinctually and gradually move around, which can allow you to shoot your target much more accurately.
  • Close one eye. Using one eye can usually allow you to accurately predict where your shot could land. 
  • Have fun! Our range is all about creating fun memories with your friends. So don’t be discouraged if you did not hit the target wanted, it happens. But don’t forget to have fun with the game.

Target archery involves archers shooting a set number of arrows at targets set at specific distances on a flat surface.
