DATEs & time:
Various start dates are available, which are always on a Sunday (See booking dates and calendar). Time is from 3.30pm - 5.30pm
We allow juniors of 8 years and above to join a beginners' course. In general, acceptance of a junior on the course is subject to the approval of the lead coach. Juniors under the age of 12 must be accompanied by parents, at all times.
Equipment: We provide all the equipment for the course. Please do not buy any equipment yourselves. Once you have completed the course and joined the club, we can offer advice to help you purchase your own equipment.
Clothing: You should wear comfortable, close-fitting clothes. If it is chilly we recommend you wear several thin layers rather than one bulky jacket, and to bring a woolly hat. Please avoid wearing baggy jumpers or jackets as bow strings tend to catch on them, and spoil your shot!
