Archery is the practice or skill of using a bow to shoot arrows. As a sport, archery requires skills of precision, control, focus, repetition and determination. It is available to be practised by all, no matter age, gender or ability, and is a widespread pastime in both developed and developing countries.
Archery is often in the public eye, both as an important sport on the Olympic Programme, and thanks to popular culture. Starting
with the Lord of the Rings trilogy, archery was featured in a run of big-budget Hollywood blockbusters, including The Hunger Games,
The Avengers and The Hobbit franchises, as well as in small screen productions like Arrow
Beware: Archery is addictive. One shot can have you hooked for a lifetime.
Archery is a sport that most people would have wanted to pursue as kids but haven't done so due to lack of awareness and facilities. The Archery club at IIT Kanpur aims to promote the sport by giving the residents an opportunity to be a part of the select few who know this sport in our country.
