Beginners Courses

Our beginners course covers everything you need to know (and more) and are run by experienced coaches. The course comprises 3 sessions over consecutive Sunday afternoons from 12 noon until 3:15pm.
 
On the course, we will teach you everything you need to know in order to take up the sport safely and with confidence. You will be equipped and instructed by our qualified coaches and be able to shoot arrows under their expert guidance. There are also non-shooting activities where we explain a little about the sport, its variations, rules and equipment. In short, you will come out of your beginners course as a well-rounded archer and where you go from there is all up to you.
 
All equipment is provided - we do advise that you shouldn't buy any equipment until you have completed your course as you may purchase something unsuitable and waste your money. Your coaches will be able to advise you about equipment, just ask!
 
Courses are £60 per adult and £30 per junior; all equipment is provided by us and included in the price - there are no other charges. If you elect to join the club after completing one of our beginners courses, you will receive a discount on your club joining fees. Juniors must be at least 8 years old to join in on a beginners course; the same age limit applies to joining the club.
 
Please note that for courses in June 2018 and after, the course fee will be £90 for adults and £60 for juniors.
