In order to join a target archery club you must complete a beginners course.
This course covers shooting techniques and - most importantly - the safety protocols and etiquette of archery.
You will also learn about different bow types and forms or archery.
The dates for our courses are listed below and the price is £75 per head.
If you cannot make the set dates, we can run a one-to-one beginners course over two one-and-a-half hour sessions. These can be arranged at times to suit you. The cost is £120 (£200 for two people).
Don’t worry about the weather - we have indoor ranges !
The minimum age for beginners courses is normally 10 years - this depends on maturity and strength, so some 10 years will be fine, others may need to wait a little while. If in doubt we are happy to carry out a quick assessment before the start of the course. Anyone under the age of 18 must be accompanied by a parent/guardian throughout the course. It is acceptable for the parent/guardian to take the course at the same time.
There is no maximum age - the oldest person we have taught so far was 82.
Archery is a very accessible sport and therefore we are happy to teach people of almost all physical abilities. If you have a medical or other condition that you think may affect your archery, just let us know and we will do our best to ensure you can shoot. (If you do not inform us in advance we may not have the staffing levels or facilities ready for you - so you may not not be able to shoot - even if you have booked.)
