Beginners Archery Courses

Planned 2023 Course Schedule, up to 10 places per course 

(all dates are Saturdays or, for the first course, Sundays):
16 & 23 April                                      
17 & 24 June                                      
12 & 19 August                                   
30 September & 7 October                   

Sessions run from 11.00 am – 4:00 pm on two successive Saturdays (Sundays for the first course) with a break for lunch.  Participants need to attend both days to complete the course successfully.  We typically reserve the following Sat as a contingency for bad weather or unforeseen circumstances. 

Please let us know if the proposed schedule doesn’t suit as it will inform our course planning.

The course is suitable for all ages from eight years old.  Young people below the age of 18 must be accompanied throughout each session by a parent, guardian or responsible adult.

The courses are run by ArcheryGB-certified coaches and attendees are covered by the Club’s insurance.  Archery equipment is provided and participants should dress for our outdoor range in non-baggy clothing.  Footwear must fully enclose the toes (i.e. no sandals).

Attending parents may want to bring a seat.  We advise that personal archery equipment is not purchased until after the course, as we include equipment advice. 


The fee for the course is £70.00 per person for senior archers (18 yrs and above) and £60.00 for juniors. This will cover everything from tuition fees to equipment use. Successful completion enables you to apply for membership at any ArcheryGB-affiliated club, including our own Bowmen of Lytchett (annual membership and Archery GB fee payable).
