Longbow Enthusiasts

Any “Traditional Long Bow / Barebow Archers” on here who fancy coming together on a regular basis, say on the second and last Thursday evening of each month for something like a Warwick 2doz @60yds + 2doz @50yds or a National 4doz @60yds + 2doz @50yds.

It would be nice to have a dedicated group “Shooting in the Longbow”

Anyone interested ? 

Any polite suggestions welcome !!

arch2 000Ever wondered where to start?

 

Hopefully this page will provide you with sufficient insight and information to make contact with us and come along to see if Archery is for you.

 

Most 'newcomers' come to archery having tried it at an activity centre, the scouts or at a simple 'Have a Go' session.  If you are new to the sport then you are going to need a beginners course.  This course gives you the safety aspects of shooting, some rules to shoot by and an understanding of basic technique to start you on your way.

 

We run  beginners course throughout the year.  Courses are always very popular and it is not unusual for places to be booked severel months ahead of the course date.

Most courses are run over 4 x 1 1/2 hour sessions and you really need to attend all 4 sessions to pass the course.  We can usually make alternative arrangements if you have to miss one of the days and fit in an extra day somewhere for you and so if you wish to do a course but struggle with the dates then please make contact with us and we'll see what we can do to help.

We also usually run courses on a Monday evening, or occasionally Saturday or Sunday for those that can't make Mondays. So gain if you are having difficulty in finding suitable dates then contact us and we'll see what we can do to help.

We can also arrange 'Taster' sessions for those that are not sure about whether archery is for them or not and before booking a beginners course.  These taster sessions cost £10 for 45 mins and should be booked via the website or by coming down to the club during a club session. (Tuesday and Thursday evenings 6.30 - 8.30 and Satuday 10.30 - 12.30)

  

 

COURSE DATES

 

The next course is planned for;

 

August  2016       Course runs on the 1st, 8th, 15th and 22nd August from 7pm till 8.30pm

 

Please contact us now if you are interested as places are filling up.

Course numbers are restricted to ensure a very good instructor/student ratio. All equipment can be borrowed from the club for the duration of the course so there is no need to buy anything before committing yourself to the sport.  In fact, we would recommend that you don't buy anything until after the course. The equipment required is very specific to you and your needs and it's not a case of 'one size fits all'  You could therefore find that buying equipment too early could prove to be a mistake.

 

If you are unable to make a course on a Monday evening then please make contact as other times/days are available from time to time.
