Harefield Archers Beginners Archery Courses

We run regular beginners courses throughout the year.

Please contact the secretary to get confirmed dates of the next course once they are available.  Please reserve your place on the next course, as spaces are limited and do fill up quite quickly.

Course Detail

We run a six week beginners course taking you from a complete novice to someone who can safely enter any indoor competition.  This is spread over an eight week period to allow for an occassional absence (although you are welcome to attend each and every course week!)

All the archery equipment is provided by the club.

All you need to do is turn up dressed appropriately and we can teach you to shoot safely!  Course notes are also provided by the club and you will receive a certificate upon completion of the course.

Dress code is suitable clothes that cannot catch on the bow string.  So a close fitting top with sleeves or a t shirt is ideal.  Anything that may catch such as a necklace, dangly earrings or jewelry is best left at home.  Sensible, flat soled shoes are ideal (most members just wear trainers) and please ensure that they are not black soled as these may mark the floor.

For more information, please email the club secretary.
