On October 23rd, Paiboon Upatising, the President of Phuket Provincial Administrative Organization (PPAO), presided over the grand opening of Phuket Archery Club. Apart from this, there was an archery competition between the club members. Phuket Archery Club was founded in order to allow people who were interested in archery to get together and share their experiences about archery as well as to develop their archery skills and promote this sport to people in Phuket.
Paiboon said that he was glad to see Phuket residents were more interested in this sport. Archery was a sport for everyone; anybody could play this sport, especially children. Moreover, it’s a sport that everyone in the family could share as a common interest and hopefully, Phuket could develop some representatives who would join archery competitions in the future.
(The club is off Ong Sim Phai Road between Robinson department store and the seahorse roundabout in south part of Phuket City).
