Beginners

We are taking course bookings for 2022

If you are new to archery, had a go while on holiday or haven’t shot in a very long time, our beginner’s course is the place to start.

The beginner’s course runs across two days. Each session last approximately 2.5 hours. During the beginner’s course you will have tuition from 1-2 members of our coaching team.

Over the two sessions you will learn:
– how to shoot a recurve bow safely and consistently
– about the different types of bow including recurve (as used in the Olympics), longbow and field bows
– how to score and shoot in competitions

All equipment required will be provided by the club for the duration of the course. All you need to do is to bring yourself.

The course fees are £50 for adults and £25 for under 18’s, this price includes a weekend session, equipment and insurance cover.

The course is suitable for all ages from 10 and up. All juniors must be accompanied by a parent (or other responsible adult) whilst they attend any club activity. We actively encourage parents to get involved and support the junior in their pursuit of archery, even if they’re not shooting themselves.

Courses are run throughout the summer, at the club field on Osgodby Lane. They are on Saturday and Sunday afternoons. Booking is required, so please contact us before turning up.
