New York’s largest indoor archery range opens on Long Island


It doesn’t get any bigger than this, at least not in New York.

So say the owners of the newly opened Ten Ring Archery in Levittown.

The 20,000-square-foot facility opened late last month, founded by avid hunters Frank Kentoffio of Patchogue and Rick Migliore of Bayville.

The two close friends and master archers hatched the idea during the pandemic. Both worked in construction, and when the state shut down, they planned to open Ten Ring Archery. But, they needed to find the right space.

Years later, it was Migliore who discovered the spot from the road — the former Bally’s Fitness at 2921 R Hempstead Turnpike.

“Rick called me up one day and said, ‘Hey, I passed by a building that might be perfect,'” said Kentoffio, who also owns a deer management company.

After circling back to the location on his way home, he jotted down the exact address. They checked it out, and six months later, here they are.

The partners gutted the space, removing the old concrete locker rooms, bathrooms and mirrored walls.

The entrance, located behind the building, leads downstairs to a 4,000-square-foot retail space, Olympic-sized target range with 26 stations, and — what sets it apart from the competition — its 3D Experience.

Kentoffio explained that some ranges have a simple setup with targets in dirt to mimic animals. Ten Ring Archery initially followed this model.

“I started setting up targets and everything, and then I talked to one of my buddies. I said, ‘Man, you know, I want to build a mountain.'”

He contacted a friend who works for a union producing sets for movies and TV shows. Now, their 3D experience features 32 animals in natural settings, like a bobcat hunting a rabbit, foxes, armadillos, deer, even a Sasquatch.

Kentoffio emphasized that the space accommodates all skill levels.

“We’re going to have archery instructors here, as well as tournaments and leagues,” he said. “From kids dreaming of becoming Olympic archers, to the Great White Hunter.”

In addition to the ranges, the shop also sells, repairs, and re-strings bows, along with other archery merchandise.
