Beginners Course

If you have little or no prior experience but would like to do archery as a sport and join the club, you need to do one of our Beginner courses to learn the basics.


Please note that we are unable to take children who are under the age of 10 on these Beginner courses. Children under 14 years old must have a parent present while they are at the club.

If you would just like to give archery a go rather than commit to a 3 week course, consider booking a group event with a group of friends. These small group events give you either a 1.5 hour or 2 hour experience allowing you to see if archery is for you.

If our group course is full and you would like to go on a waiting list for a Beginner course, please contact the Coaching Coordinator via

Important note: if you apply for club membership more than 4 months after completing a beginner course and have not shot elsewhere in the interim, then you will be asked to attend a minimum 1 hour paid refresher/induction course or until the coach is satisfied you are safe to shoot. Your assessing coach can provide you with more information, including hourly rates.
