Beginners Courses

Our beginners course will teach you how to shoot safely and independently. The cost is £65 each per adult and £45 each for juniors (i.e. those under 18 years of age). We provide all the necessary equipment. The courses are held at our field, which is between Faringdon and Lechlade.

For 2017 we are offering weekday courses on Monday/Thursday evenings AND Saturday courses. The Saturday sessions are longer than the weekday evening ones but the course content will be the same. We welcome disabled students, but advise that we are located in a field and have no disabled toilet facilities.

Monday/Thursday Evening Courses

Ideal if your weekends are full. These courses run for six two-hour sessions and are held over three weeks on Monday and Thursday evenings.

Saturday Daytime Courses

If you can’t attend a weekday course, then these may suit you better. These courses are held over three sessions, which are longer than the weekday ones but the course content is the same. There will be a break in the middle of each session, so you may wish to bring something to eat and drink.

Each course is structured, and is not a series of drop-in sessions. Please check the dates carefully and do not book a place if you will miss either the first session, or more than one of the others. If you miss a session, we may run a catch-up session at some point shortly after the course.

To book your place, please either email the course administrator — Pete Wright — at or call him on . If the available courses are fully booked please check back here at a later date. Sometimes places become available at the last minute.

You will need to arrange payment. Once payment is received the course administrator will confirm your place. If you are paying by internet bank transfer, please email him to let him know you’ve done so.

All our beginners’ courses are led by Archery GB qualified coaches.

Please do not buy any archery equipment beforehand!
