Archery in Oman – Practice the Noble Sport

Archery is an ancient sport in which a bow is used to propel arrows to a fixed target. The bow and arrow were a major weapon and a primary tool in the ancient times.

History
The traditional bow and arrow were used by civilisations since the beginning of time. However it is believed that the Egyptians were the first to use it for hunting purposes. And the art was used by the most countries in the Middle East to fight battles and defeat enemies for centuries.

Archery today
This ancient art has returned to Oman as a recreational activity to boost up their tourism industry and the activity has become one of the key attractions in Oman in no time. Thus most luxury hotels and resorts such as Anantara Al Jabal Al Akhdar Resort in the country offer archery as a fun pass time.

What to expect
Most establishments offer training sessions on how to try your hand, train your eye, build stamina in your upper body and aim your target accurately. The trainees will be given static targets in different shooting rangers for practice.

Who is it available for?
The activity is suitable for both adults and children above the age of eight. Regular sessions are usually 60 minutes long and certain establishments provide packages for groups of people. Archery lessons in Oman are available for beginners as well as for visitors who want to polish their skills.
