Frequently Asked Questions

  1. I'm not sure if I can hit anything! You can come to the club, twice, to see if field archery is for you. It won't cost you anything. After that we'll ask you to join the club. And even then your first visit as a member is free.

  2. What equipment do I need to buy? Stop right there, don't buy anything until you know what you really want/need. Come along and ask lots of questions! The club has hire bows and arrows.

  3. Do I get taught or do I have to learn on my own? To start with you won't be able to even go to the practice butts with out the aid of a coach, he/she will assess your development and in due course will you will be asked to join a group to shoot on one of the courses.
