Want To Have A Go At Archery?
At our club we are very keen to let anyone and everyone try their hand at archery (from aged 10 upwards). To that end we have designed our Beginner’s Course to enable those interested to shoot with us under fully safe coaching conditions. The complete course is held over a total of 7 Sunday afternoon sessions of approximately two hours per session (1 free, and 6 paid) at a total cost of £45 per person.
Taught by our Archery GB level 1 coaches (who are advance DBS checked), with all the equipment needed for the course provided by ourselves, we just ask that you wear reasonably tight clothing so the bowstring won’t catch on the sleeves, tie back long hair and do not wear opened toe shoes if its warm weather.
We include a free “Have a Go” session which precedes the start of your course; this is a good way to get a “feel” for the club and archery itself before the paid lessons start. At the end of the course you will be issued a certificate of completion and invited to join our Club as a new member. We anticipate that after the seven weeks and you will have passed the certificate and are at a stage where you can shoot safely with our regular club members who will be able to further help and advise you as you require, along with the club coaches who are always available to offer advice.
Archery is a sport that you never stop learning once the basics are understood!
For further details on what the beginner’s course entails please go to the Beginners Course Complete Information Page
Further information about archery can be found in our downloads section where we have downloadable pdf’s relating to all equipment, types of archery, stringing a bow, and shooting a bow, amongst others.
Course places MUST be pre-booked, we are unable to accommodate beginners who wish to just turn up to a session hoping to be included.

Beginner Course Declaration of Interest Form
Please note: We are working to increasing the amount of spaces we can make available every month to new potential archers. Our main priority is always to ensure we coach safely and correctly, so our course numbers are kept low (approx 9 per course). We apologise that we must work on a waiting list basis if we haven’t yet confirmed the next available dates. Our available spaces are generally taken very quickly. Please use our contact us form to get your name(s) added to our waiting list. We need to know your name(s), age(s) if under 18, and if you are normally left or right handed as this helps us allocate club kit.
