At what age can someone take up archery?
The sport of archery can be done by anyone starting from the age of 6, with no upper limit. Our clubs offer classes and training sessions for all ages, however they are limited by the equipment (bows and arrows) that are in stock, as some bows might be too large and/or too heavy for younger archers. Due to safety concerns, we recommend that any person under the age of 13 be accompanied by an adult
How do I become a member?
Membership is handled through our clubs. Once you join a club, you automatically become a member of World Archery Fiji. We currently have 3 clubs operating, two in Suva (Suva Archery Club and Colo-i-Suva Archery Club) and one in Sigatoka (Cuvu Archery Club), and hope to have more in future.
How safe is the sport?
Safety is the top priority for our sport, and is constantly emphasized throughout our classes. Because of this, archery is one of the safest sports, not just in the country, but worldwide, as shown by statistics. There have been no recorded injuries requiring medical attention at any of our events or competitions throughout our entire 50+ year history.
What types of bows and equipment do you use?
For a breakdown of the types of bows used for archery, you can find them here. There are two main types of bows used in competitive archery. These are recurve and compound bows. Archery equipment is not sold locally, but can be bought from New Zealand, Australia, or the USA. A confirmation letter is needed from World Archery Fiji, stating that the person bringing in the equipment is a member of a local club, and the equipment is for personal sporting use only. Note: It is illegal to import any hunting equipment (e.g. broadheads).
