Archery is the art of using a bow and arrow. Coming from the Latin word arcus, archery has historically been used for hunting and combat. In modern times, it is mainly a competitive sport and recreational activity. Cyprus has a large community of archers, with the first ever games taking place in 1989 (9th April). With the support of the Cyprus Archery federation (founded in 1973), Archery has grown to a massive competitive sport, with categories of 30, 60 and 70m for all age ranges to compete.
