Disabled Archers Are Aiming for International Glory – And Show a Growing Sport


Cardigan, Ceredigion -- (SBWIRE) -- 02/24/2016 -- Recent news has highlighted the highly inclusive and growing community of people involved in the sport of archery. Once seen as a sport of old tradition, such reports prove it is a progressive and thrilling activity to be involved in. It accommodates people with disabilities too, as proved by two visually impaired archers - Stuart Rodgers and Carol Davies, who are part of the Louth and District Disabled Archery Club - being invited to train for two major international events. They have been to shoot individually at international classification level, and also will compete for Great Britain at the European Championships in April. This proves that archery is at the forefront of progressive sport, something industry experts, Sports Guns, was keen to comment on.

Archery is a widely-recognized sport, known for its traditional appeal and development of aim. It is thought that the recent reports will encourage engagement in the activity – as it can be modified and made accessible for a number of people to enjoy. For example, whilst Stuart competes in archery competitions fully blind, Carol is partially sighted. There are also institutions such as British Wheelchair Archery and the British Blind Sports association upholding archery as an inclusive sport.

Sports Guns are key providers of archery equipment and a spokesperson had this to say:

"It is brilliant to see the wide range of involvement in archery – and it is a skill-driven, exciting sport. That is why we offer a wide range of archery equipment, so people can pick an option well suited to them and enjoy this progressive sport."
