Beginners Course

If you've never done archery before, but would like to join. Don't worry we offer a heavily discounted five week beginner course that will teach you everything you need to know on how to shoot safely (usually costs in the range of £60 - £75 at the local archery clubs). All beginners will be required to complete this course if they wish to shoot at the club.

The course will run on the following dates:

  • Saturday 5th October 2019: 2pm – 4.30pm
  • Saturday 12th October 2019: 2pm – 4.30pm
  • Saturday 19th October 2019: 2pm – 4.30pm

Cost: £20, payment will be required before the start of the second session.

You can complete this course at another Archery GB recognised club if you wish. If this is the preferred method, then we will require a copy of your beginners certificate and a short demonstration of safe shooting.
