BEGINNERS COURSES

Archery is a healthy activity which almost everyone can enjoy. We offer two great options for people new to the sport. The minimum age limit for either is ten.

 

Anyone wishing to join the club must complete a “Beginners Course”, which takes one full day and costs £55 for Juniors (people under 18 ) or £65 for adults including all equipment. The course includes:

 

  • a detailed safety briefing;

  • equipment assembly;

  • introduction to technique;

  • a number of three arrow “ends” shot under supervision at short range;

  • an introduction to scoring;

  • a mini competition at slightly longer range;

  • a general introduction to archery as a hobby, to our club and to alternative archery disciplines.

 

At the end of the course members receive a certificate which allows them to join a club and a sheet of useful information for taking things to the next step.

The dates for have a goes and beginner courses will be published to those who have registered and will be included in the shooting schedule. Please arrive 15 minutes before the start time for registration. Please wear warm clothing which is not loose around the chest and arms. Trainers or similar footwear preferred - no open toed footwear.

Courses take place at Millmead Hall in Winter and The Caldecotte Xperience in summer: Millmead Hall is opposite Wolverton Station to the

north east. The Caldecotte Xperience is half way between Simpson and Fenny Stratford. Turn east into the Caldecotte Xperience towards the Caldecotte Lake “windmill”, drive between the car parks, through the bollards, past the single gate on the right and then turn right through the double gates. These gates are normally kept locked for security reasons but all members have the padlock combination. Park after about 300 metres (don’t drive onto the hard standing).
