Archery Academy & Horseback Riding Club In Bahria Town

Bahria Town being an entertaining and opportunistic place is creating an effect on each class to be a part of it. It has raised the standards of living and making its residents a priority by providing prodigious amenities and facilities. Most importantly Bahria Town targeted the imaginations of middle class and lower middle class people, to give them affordable yet state of the art lifestyle simultaneously. That is why, in Pakistan Bahria Town is now one of the top trend setter private housing society and get the unprecedented response and success in a very short period of time.

 

Now almost everyone is well-accquianted with the fact that the facilities in every project of Bahria Town can not be found in any private housing society of Pakistan. I’ve been told by many who have experience living abroad that despite of few minor factors, the lifestyle in Bahria Town is entirely as staisfactory as living abroad. To support this statement further, here are the two stirring recreative activities which must not be missed by being a Bahria Town’s resident.

 

  • Archery Academy
  • Horse Riding Club.

 

Archery Academy:

A research indicates that Archery was first adopted by ancient Egyptians about 5000 years back. In Olympics, it has a separate category and has seven different disciplines according to distance. Though it is one of the coolest and most sophisticated sport to occupy yourself. But the inclination towards Archery wouldn’t been compelling in Pakistan despite few insignificant followers. There are very few numbers of Archery Academys in Pakistan, and I’ve heard only about one notable academy that is ‘Pakistan Archers and Archery Academy’.

 

In Bahria Town, outdoor Archery Academy is completely operational for the residents, with a professional instructor, imported equipments, Bows and Arrows. In recent days, a tournament was also being held in Bahria Town Archery Academy, which was also covered and witnessed by many media channels.

Location:

Archery Academy in Bahria Town is located at Sector C, adjacent to canal road and near to Bahria main Gate.

 

Membership & Monthly Charges:

Every resident can join Archery Academy and take part in this sport. The procedure is simple to register yourself as a member. Membership registration forms are available at sports office in cricket stadium, sector D. Months back, registration fee was Rs. 2500/- but it is now increased to Rs. 5000/-. And monthly fee is the same as before, which is Rs 2500/-.

 

Timings:

3:00 pm to 5:00 pm.

 

Training & Practice:

Stretching and flexibility is the key to Archery. In Archery Academy you will get all the essential training by a professional trainer. For stretching training, you have to purchase a stretching band first. Other than that, to start your Archery you should have a well-balanced workout including:

 

  1. Walk & Jogging.
  2. Strength training.
  3. Cardio.

 

Accessories & Equipments:

Though the game looks simple by having an Arrow and a Bow and start hitting the target. But, actually, it is more than that, because the equipment for this sport is much costly than it seems. Bahria Town Archery Academy has its own basic equipment. However, if you’re willing to join Archery Academy, you must have your own equipment and all other accessories to make a start.

 

  • Bow.
  • Bow String.
  • Arrow.
  • Nocking point.
  • Arm Guards.

Benefits Of Archery:

Well, it seems like that it’s a passionless activity and the demand of Archery have been underestimated. But when you would try it, you will get to know how difficult is to shoot an arrow. If it wouldn’t professionally handle, it may also cause some serious injury to shoulders, arms and elbows muscles. Here are the few benefits of Archery:

 

  1. The main hidden feature of the Archery is mental foucs. When you practice Archery on regular basis, it will termondusly increase your focus on every other task.
  2. It will also help you to overcome procrastination and distraction in normal life.
  3. Practice Archery helps you to gain control over your body.
  4. It will also increase your upper body strength.
  5. Archery can be frustrating at first but eventually it will give you more patience.
  6. Archery is one of the sports that can be practised by all ages.

 

Sa’d ibn Abi Waqqas(R.A) narrated that the Prophet (peace be upon him) said, “Hold on tight to Archery as this is better for you”. Or he said, “It is the best from your games”.(Hadith)

 

Horse Riding Club:

Have you ever heard before that anyone in Pakistan have a resident facing horse riding club or a horse barn, just a few steps away to his house? No, because especially in Lahore there isn’t any option like that before Bahria Town first introduced the concept to provide this best facility to its residents. Firstly, in Lahore city, there are only few horse riding clubs that are active and most of them have been established in recent years. The only option we had earlier was the Race-Course horse riding Club and the monthly charges in Race-Course Riding Club are I guess 10 to 15 thousand or even more. Other options, like Garrison Golf & Country Club and Lahore Polo Club etc, are way too expensive and you have to face the burden to buy its membership. However, the only obstacle is that these horse riding clubs aren’t approachable to every common citizen, because of its costly membership and distant locations.

 

Lahore & Rawalpindi Clubs:

In Bahria Town, first horse riding club was established in Rawalpindi’s Bahria Town. The Horse Riding Club in Rawalpindi is located at Saddle Lounge in Phase-4, along with the cafe, restaurant, and a bar. Due to its approving response by the residents, Bahria Town also built Horse Riding Club in Lahore and opened it at the start of 2015. Both of the Horse Riding Clubs in Lahore and Rawalpindi are fully operational for the residents. And emerged as the most captivating and signature facility of the Bahria Town.

 

Horse Riding Club Lahore:

The dilemma to ride a horse was finally settled when I have the most economical and accessible option in Bahria Town. Because, before that in my school life it was an unapproachable thing for me to satisfy my craving for horse riding. Now it is extremely easy to join this Riding Club for any horseback rider devotee as compared to any other riding clubs in Lahore. It is one of the best places in Bahria Town to spend your outdoor quality time. Moreover, they’ve also professional instructors and offers few courses to each skill category. The riding club is open for both residents and non-residents without a burden of expensive membership.

 

Location:

Horse Riding Club in Bahria Town is located at Janiper Block, Sector C. Initially Bahria Town was planning to build a cricket stadium at this location, but after Sector D, stadium Bahria Town had turned that area into Horse Riding Club, Rose Garden and Football Academy.

 

Stable & Number Of Horses:

The stable in any Horse Riding Club is the most favorite place for many. When they launched Horse Riding Club in Bahria Town Lahore, only three to four horses were available at that time. But recently, when I visited its stable, which is on the back side, it is unbelievable for me to see that there are now more than fifty horses and all of the horses are in ready condition for the riders. One of the workers out there told me that, most horses are owned by Bahria Town and few of them are belongs to Ex-President Zardari. Couldn’t able to captured all of the horses, you can see some horses in above-mentioned picture.

 

Membership & Charges:

To join a Horseback Riding Club is quite easy and same for kids and adults. Monthly charges are Rs. 5,000/-( Registration charges are included).

 

Timings:

3:00 Pm to 5:00 Pm (Winters)

 

A Complete Workout:
It may look like that only the horse is running and getting all the exercise, but it required a perfect balance, strong muscles, and stable core to stay on horseback. Horseback riding includes all your body parts to handle it and it is the perfect whole body exercise. And I must say to those who are willing to join a fitness club to reduce their weight, horseback riding will help them in fitness and you can get beyond to a basic gym routine.

 

Everything with which a man amuses himself is vain except three (things): a man’s training of his horse, his playing with his wife and his shooting with his bow and arrow.( Hadith)

 

Islam has also emphasize to learn three things in life as a Muslim, Archery, Horseback Riding, and Swimming. So, we should at least understand the basics of these activities. All of three activities are open for all to get the best experience with best facilities while residing in Bahria Town.

Juice Hut & Dry Fruits

After having a lot of choices for fresh juices and shakes places, another juice shop is now opened in Bahria Town. Not long ago, Fresh Fruitly Juice shop has also set up in sector E. With the addition of one more juice shop by the name of ‘Juice Hut’, there are now more than 12 options available for juices, shakes and smoothies in Bahria Town.

Its been a week now that ‘Juice Hut’, along with Khan Jee Dry fruits are operational in town. This juice shop is pretty much alike Ice-land, as they’re also selling more or less the same products like juices, shakes and other snacks. And if you’re looking to buy fresh dry fruits in this winter, then they’ve variety of all sorts of dry fruits too.

 

Timings:

Pet Show

Events like Pet shows are very rare and you can hardly witness these kind of shows. In the start of this month, one of the largest Pet show was held in Expo Centre Lahore. Now, like last year and every year before, Bahria Town have arranged Pet shows for its residents. In 2015, two events were held by the management of Bahria Town. One was a Dog Show and other was a Pet Show. Last year in 2016, in April, a Pet Show was also arranged at cricket ground. Normally, previous Pet Shows were arranged in start of the year but this time it is a little bit late. Well, maintaining this consistency, yesterday, Bahria Town management has placed the boards in whole Bahria Town. The advertisement boards stating that, the pet show is now going to held on Sunday, 10th December, 2017.

 

As it is mentioned in the above picture, the procedure for registration is very simple. The registration for Pet show will be done on the day of Pet show, at the venue.  The Pet show will start at 1:00 pm and registration will take place between 11:00 am to 1:00 pm. I did not witnessed the previous shows. However, Bahria Town has also arrange refreshments on cash payments. All sorts of pets animals and birds are included in the show. The display of animals will continue to further for a day or two.

 

Location:

The venue is same as last year, this Pet show will be held at Cricket ground, which is located at BB block, Sector D.

 

Flower Competition:

Moreover, Bahria Town also arrange a flower competition every year. The competition is all about, how good you maintain your inside and outside lawns by flowers. There are normally five categories of this competition, and only those can take part, who have registered themselves by submitting applications. At the day of Pet Show, prize distribution cermony of flower competition will also be held.

Chick n Chilli

There are many fast food restaurants that are serving in Bahria Town including international and local chains. A complete list of all restaurants names, contact numbers and addresses are also available in our telephone directory. As we all know that many restaurants  have quit serving from Bahria Town. But, at the same time new openings are also growing. So, there is another new fast food restaurant ‘Chick n Chilli’ has opened its door in Bahria Town. It is now officially opened today in sector D. They have all kinds of fast food items in its Menu, you can find its Menu below the post. Restaurant has both, inside and outside sitting arrangements. Beside this, free home delivery is also available within the Bahria Town.

Discount offer:

Today is the first day of its opening and this restaurant is now offering flat 25% discount for one week.

Location:

‘Chick n Chilli’ is located at main road, 11 block CC Sector D. It is few steps away from McDonald and also adjacent to Ice Curl. Due to its location and near to McDonald I think it will be difficult for them to grab more customer’s attention. Because, McDonald itself is evidently one of the most prominent name in fast food chains. But, I hope that they will lock its place and business in the market despite of McDonald near to it.

McDonald’s Is Active Now

McDonald’s is functional now.Plus this is 24 hour branch. It will be good for us to visit any time but problem for houses nearby. They will face the commercial activity round the clock.

Construction Speed:

10 days ago, I was telling you that McDonald’s is under construction. Now they are ON. McDonald’s has constructed this massive building in such a short time that it is a record in Bahria Town. They have worked day and night and completed above building around 3 months approx.

McDonald’s is Under Construction

Yes you read it right! Finally McDonald’s is coming to Bahria Town Lahore. It is one of the brand we all have been waiting for. I like it because of it’s ice cream. Moreover they really have clean kitchen and deliver clean food.

When To Start:

It is heard that they are planning to launch their Bahria branch on New Year Eve. It seems to be a really tough target because we have only 12 days left. Though they working day and night and they have built the above building within days.

Let’s see if it’s true and they really start their branch on New Year Eve.

Effect On Commercial Property:

McDonald’s branch has also effect the rise in prices of commercial nearby. 2 marla commercial of CC block has raised from 8 million to 15 million only because of McDonald’s. However prices have settle down on 13 to 14 million right now. This is a very high price for a 2 marla commercial plot.

I believe if commercial size would be nearly 4 or 5 marla, then it could be a better option for other brands to jump in. I don’t think that any international food chain will start their outlet in just 2 marla commercial. So I guess this raise is temporarily and price will fell down a bit more.
