Learn to shoot

We run regular beginners courses where you can learn to shoot in a safe and friendly environment with our trained coaches. Register your interest below or read on for more details

Beginners Courses

We can help you try out archery in a safe and friendly environment with the help of experienced archers and qualified coaches.

Courses are only run at certain times of the year and are organised and run entirely by club volunteers in their own time. Once you enquire there may be a lengthy wait before the next course. We ask for your patience.

We currently have a waiting list for courses and tasters but if you register online you will be added to the list and contacted in due course.

Have a Go Days

If you just want to try Archery, we also run occasional events where you can just “have a go”. Check this events page for details of any up coming events
