The Club has decided NOT to run any taster sessions for 2021. This is partly because of COVID, but also because of the logistics of our move from Mill Road to the Northern Gateway. The ground work hasn’t been completed at the new site meaning we can’t take up residence, whilst at the same time some of our existing facilities are being decommissioned. We are running beginners’ courses, but unfortunately these are now fully booked. If you would like to be notified when we schedule our next set of taster sessions then please register your interest with Kieron by email.
Perhaps you have never shot a bow before and wonder what it is like, or maybe you have been inspired by the Olympics and fancy a go yourself. If so then one of our taster sessions could be for you. We run a series of 90 minute introductory sessions each year where we show you the basic technique then get you shooting as quickly as possible. The cost is £10 per session. We take up to 12 people on each session with a recommended minimum age of 10 years. It is ideal as a family activity so why not give it a go? Places are often booked as birthday presents etc, so feel free to fill in a form with your own contact details and mention on the form that it is a gift for somebody else. If you have any questions then please feel free to email us.
If our courses are full or our dates don’t suit you then you can try Perris Archery as they run lessons indoors throughout the year. We deal regularly with Perris and will accept membership applications from beginners if you have completed one of their courses or a course organised by another Archery GB affiliated archery club. Phone them at their Raydon branch for details on 01473 314097.
Please note that if a session is cancelled by CADAC then the club will organise another session to replace it. If you fail to turn up for a session then you will not be entitled to another. Sessions will normally take place even if it is raining so please bring a waterproof with you. We will only cancel the session if there is persistent heavy rain, lightening, high winds or fog. This will be at CADAC’s discretion on the grounds of safety and is non-negotiable . You will be provided with contact details in advance, but if you are unsure about the weather and cannot contact us on the day then turn up anyway as someone will be there to inform you of the rescheduled date if we do have to cancel a session.
If you have any questions please contact Kieron by email.
