Beginners Courses

We provide two training courses for beginners each year, it is a condition of Archery GB (the governing body of archery in Great Britain) that attendance on such a course is required before you can become a member of any archery club.

All archery clubs put safety foremost. It is essential that anyone wishing to learn archery is given tuition in both the art of shooting, and the safety aspects of the sport. The courses we run at Knebworth are fun, but must be taken seriously. Archery isn't dangerous – but it could be.

Numbers on these courses are strictly limited to 25 students per course, this ensures both safety and the quality of the training.

The cost of the four sessions (two afternoons for two weekends usually in early June and early September) is a total of £50, (this fee is for tuition, insurance and use of club equipment, own equipment must not be used). On the last afternoon of the course (the second Sunday) we usually hold a 'fun shoot'.

Our Next Courses are June 18 and September 18 (dates to be confirmed)
