Event Descriptions 

Have-A-Go and Taster Sessions are short one-off activities giving you a taste of what archery is about. Beginners courses are usually delivered over a six-week period in which you will receive an introduction to target archery and be taught the correct shooting technique.

Clubs and coaches will be making sure that any archery session has covid-secure measures, keeping you safe but without impacting on your enjoyment!

To join a club, you will normally be expected to undertake a Beginners Course, at which time you would usually also become a member of Archery GB. We provide the infrastructure for the sport, sends you a membership card that allows you to shoot almost anywhere in the world, and keeps you up to date through its magazine, ezine, website and social media.

For more information about starting out in archery, you can visit the section on our Beginners Guidebook.

Please be aware that not all club information is displayed, so if there is nothing near you, please use the Club Finder for your nearest.
