WARNING: Archery is addictive ! But have no fear…on completion of the course you will know what style of archery you favour and know how to select one of our bows and the correct arrows.
You can come and use our range and hire our kit, and we can also help you work out what would be the the best thing for your first purchase of your own equipment.
As you know, archery is a safe sport as long as we all follow a few basic rules. Our insurers are very strict on how we assess and demonstrate your competency to shoot. As a consequence we will need to ask you for some basic information before you can shoot, this will include your agreement to the rules of the range and is for the safety of everyone.
For under 18’s a parent or guardian must remain on the premises, but don’t fear, you can relax in our viewing area with a cappuccino, and watch all those arrows hitting the gold!
