The Beginners Course   


We run courses for absolute beginners throughout the year, whatever the weather. The Beginners Course consists of four 2-hour sessions held on consecutive Saturday mornings from 10.00 am to 12.30 pm on our outdoor field at Highbridge Farm in Allbrook. If for any reason you cannot attend any of the sessions (work commitment, holiday etc) we will always let you make up the lost time at a later date.



Our club has a  team of highly experienced, nationally qualified coaches and so we are able to offer one-to-one Instruction on the shooting line. Our primary concern is to make sure you shoot safely but having fun comes a very close second. We believe that anyone can be taught to shoot a bow – all you need is the desire to do it.



The club will provide you with all the necessary archery equipment so all you need to think about is your personal comfort – warm clothing, food, drink, chair etc.. Purchasing your own

bow is a big decision not to be taken lightly and we positively discourage new members from buying equipment until they know precisely what they want. When that happy moment eventually arrives, we will give you informed advice and even come with you to the shop to ensure you get kit that is matched to you as an individual.



The fee for the four week Beginners Course is £60.00 per adult  (over 18) and  £50 per junior (under 18) 

This must be paid by Cheque or bank transfer prior to the first day of the course.

If you would like to give the course to someone as a present, we can provide a personalised gift

certificate but for this we ask for payment in advance.


Beyond Beginners

Once you have successfully completed the Beginners Course, you will recieve a Certificate of Achievement, we invite you to become a club member for which there is an annual fee.

You are most welcome to carry on using the club equipment and you can join the Saturday Intermediate Group where there will always be further coaching available.

A key asset of our club is its large coaching team and we will continue to support and advise you, whatever level you shoot at.


Does Archery suit a particular type of person?

Yes – you! The fact that you are reading this means you have what it takes: namely, interest. There is no age restriction and, contrary to popular belief, you don’t need a strong arm or a good eye. We have many club members with disabilities – wheelchair users, for example, as well as people with visual and other impairments – and it is a sport that appeals equally to both men and women, boys and girls. This makes it the ultimate family sport.
