We run beginners courses during the year when there are enough applicants to make up a course.


The course will take you from absolute beginner to a reasonable archer knowing how to shoot safely in compliance with the GNAS rules of shooting. The club supplies all the equipment needed to learn to shoot. The sessions cover safety, equipment maintenance, both scoring methods, along with short talks on other archery skills.


The course costs £40 for seniors & £20 for Juniors and is currently limited to those people over 12 years of age, no upper limit as long as you think you will be able to pull the bow safely. In general there is no medical reason that will stop you participating, if in doubt please ask. Please note that applicants under 18 must be accompanied by a parent/guardian to comply with the club’s child protection policy.

Please note

If you intend to join our club then completion of this course or a similar one run by another GNAS club is required before membership will be considered.
