Welcome to the website of the South African National Archery Association (SANAA) dedicated to development of the sport.
People from many walks of life enjoy archery. Almost every age group can participate, and children as young as 6 or 7 have taken well to the sport, while it is not unheard of for people in their 80s to be shooting competitively. It also teaches the benefits of teamwork in some cases with some competitions involving groups of people.
Archery is a great way to enjoy the outdoors and can be enjoyed by both able bodied and disabled people. The sport can be competitive or simply recreational and can provide much enjoyment. Archery can be practiced both indoors and outdoors with many clubs having access to indoor facilities over the winter season so the weather need not be a barrier to participation.
This website is designed for the archery novice and aimed at developing the sport.
