Archery was seen only in TV in Rhodes island before the Island's involvement in the Island Games events. Now, great efforts are made by Takis Michailidis (Rhodes Island Games Association ) to create and develop the sport in Rhodes.
Already a team has been composed by young promissing athletes with great interrest and love for the sport. Thanks to the visit of an Olympic Archery team who visited the island for the 2004 Olympic games preparation in June 2004, we are getting competition experience, court requirement and preparation experience and great interrest for the sport by the local residents.
Archery is set to be held at a new site with ideal wind and field conditions.
