Archery, the Game of Bow and Arrow is the National Sports of Bhutan. Unlike the archery played in Olympic, Bhutanese play this game over the yard of 145 Meters between the two target, which are roughly at height of one meter and 15 CM width. A team can be built with players of 9 or more but in odd digits as it is very much believed that Odd number provide a healthy, safe and enjoyable match within the match.

Traditionally, the archery games were played using the hand-made bamboo bow and arrow, which today is confined by the modern bow and arrow imported all the way from US, Canada, Europe and popular bow manufacturers around the globe, never the less, Bhutan still continues to keep the culture of bamboo bow and arrow with constant match organization and with special prizes for the winner.
