How to Join/Beginners Courses


New to archery?

Never shot a bow in your life? Done a bit at school or at cubs/scouts etc? Then you need to enroll on one of our beginners courses.

The club holds two beginners courses, usually in the Spring and one in the Autumn. These are run on the shooting field at St. Martins School.

The course is run over five weeks. Four sessions will give you the basic information on equipment, rules and technique. The fifth session is a fun competition shot with the other members of the club. The whole course fee, which includes hire of all equipment, is £35. There is a 10% discount for a family booking of two or more.

We will be holding a beginners course starting on March 18th 2018. The course is 4 weeks long (with a fun shoot in the 5th week). Please note there is a break for Easter. Therefore, the course dates are 18th, 25th March, then 8th and 15th April. The fun shoot is on the 22nd April.

The application form can be downloaded here.

If you have any further inquiries relating to courses, we can be contacted via email:


Shot before?

Are you a lapsed member of another club looking for somewhere new to shoot? Or perhaps you've done a beginners course elsewhere? If so we welcome new members at any time of the year. You don't have to be an expert archer, just demonstrate that you can safely handle a bow. Even if you don't have your own equipment we will hire you some at a very competitive rate.

Either pop down the field on one of our archery days and ask for Glenda (club secretary) or contact her at
