The class will be held from 3 pm-6 pm at Black Ball Sporting Club in New Cairo.
If you've ever wanted to try your hand at archery, here's your chance to do just that at the Golden Arrow Archery Academy. On Friday, the academy will be offering a class free-of-charge from 3 pm to 6 pm at Black Ball Club Sporting Club in New Cairo. Anyone aged six years and above is welcomed to participate.
We spoke to Ahmed Atef, co-founder of the academy, about the idea and how it came to be. He shared with us that one of the most significant driving forces behind the academy's establishment was his passion for the sport and his desire to promote it. Atef also told us that, "the sport, which originates all the way back from Ancient Egypt, deserves more attention than it gets," and setting up the academy put them well on their way to achieving that.
Atef shared with us that "the academy hopes to discover the next Egyptian archery champion" and is working towards that by organizing tryouts at different schools and clubs to find Egypt's next raw talent.
