The Phuket Archery Club is located off Thanon Ong Sim Phai, in a quiet part of Old Phuket Town and just a stone’s throw from the popular Robinson Department Store. Santi Tantangtrong manages the Club, whom we got acquainted with at the Thailand Princess Cup Archery Competition 2016. One of our archers was in Phuket recently and decided to pop over to say hello.
The club is open to the public, is well equipped and archers can easily shoot up to 45m at this range. Fees (based on our information) are very reasonable at THB50/hr and equipment rental is THB200/basic recurve bow, including finger tab, arm-guard and arrows.
In Phuket and missing archery? You can pay a visit to the Phuket Archery Club and get your archery fix. Santi is a friendly guy and can also get you shooting quickly, if you are a beginner. Hungry? Just pop around the corner to Tubtim Restaurant for Thai Chinese style braised pork knuckle, duck and chicken rice. It’s popular with locals and well worth the visit.
