Beginners Courses 2019

Our beginners course will teach you how to shoot safely and independently — and, of course, have fun doing so. 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. Courses are held at our field, which is between Faringdon and Lechlade.

Our course is not a series of drop-in sessions — it is structured because there’s quite a lot more than meets the eye to learning how to shoot, but if it was easy it wouldn’t be nearly as much fun. Please check the dates carefully in the tables below and do not book a place if you will miss either the first session or more than one of the others. Payment for your place(s) is due in advance of your first session.

For 2019 we are offering weekday courses on Monday/Thursday evenings. We welcome disabled students, but please be aware that we are located in a field and have no disabled toilet facilities.

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.

Once your course fee 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!
