Coaching by our club’s qualified Archery GB coaches.

We hold courses to introduce newcomers to the sport of archery, open to anyone from 12-years-old upwards. We are an all-abilities archery club and welcome people with disabilities. Our shooting venue, the Sports Hall, Longridge Towers School, just outside Berwick-upon-Tweed, is wheelchair accessible.

The courses are supervised by our club’s qualified Archery GB coaches. They provide 12 hours of coaching so that participants achieve the level of proficiency required for new entrants to the sport. The coaching takes place in a relaxed and friendly atmosphere and is suitable for people of all ages and abilities. All equipment is provided and you are covered by our club’s insurance.

If you want to take part in our next course, get in touch NOW as the number of places is limited and they are allocated on a first-come, first-served basis.

Because archery is a projectile sport, and safety is paramount, you can only join a club and take part in competitions after taking a beginners’ course like ours run to Archery GB standards.

Our course starts by teaching you how to assemble and use a recurve bow for target archery. You are taught the safety procedures to follow and how to shoot safely with a recurve bow with sights. Successful completion of the course should allow you to reach a level of competence so that you can join our club and become an Archery GB member with the basic skills to build on to whatever level you want to reach — whether recreational shooting on club nights, entering local and regional competitions, or aiming for the 2020 Olympics or Paralympics!
