Archery is a less sweaty, more civilised alternative to the testosterone-fuelled stag stuff. Learn the basics of this Olympic sport at a new site just south of Newcastle. Manned by professionals, the centre uses all the latest equipment and has fantastic facilities.
Work as one big stag party, split into teams or go head-to-head to bag the highest score. You'll feel like Robin, the Hooded Man after a couple of rounds loosing off arrows.
On arrival you'll be briefed on what to expect and kitted out with a bow that matches your size and strength. Master the 12 steps to the basic archery shot, discover your shooting style and feel the sweet rush of hitting the bullseye. You'll be amazed how tough the sport is at first - then when you get the hang of it, you'll be stunned you never got the chance to do it before.
Archery is a test of brains, brawn, skill and confidence. You'll need to be cool under pressure and completely unshakeable in the face of distraction to hit the mark. Have a bash but be warned: it's addictive stuff!
