Beginners’ Courses



As we are coming to an end of our outdoor season and moving indoors we are unable to run any beginners courses indoors because of restricted space and distancing.  If you are still interested please e-mail and I will get in touch when restrictions  are eased. We will be looking to starting some beginners course on a very reduced scale.  We will be following ArcheryGB safety guidelines.

Next year we hope to run courses outside starting in early May 2021

At Sutton Archery Club we normally run three major beginners courses a year, which start in May  The courses run for three weeks, with qualified ArcheryGB coaches to develop basic shooting technique and safety and after this.

If you would like to attend one of these courses could you email. If you are unable to attend the full three weeks due to weather, holidays, work, etc.we will carry over the programme for that week. 

The cost for the beginners’ course is £45 per person which covers the full three weeks of tuition, usually on three consecutive weeks with small group tuition, this tuition involves experienced archers and club coaches on an individual basis  The cost also covers all the equipment necessary to start shooting and your insurance membership 

The courses do run for three weeks, and take place on the back field at :

Sutton Coldfield Rugby Football Club, 

The Roger Smoldon Ground,

160 Walmley Road, 

Sutton Coldfield,  

West Midlands, 

B76 2QA 

The minimum age to shoot is 11 years old, and all juniors are expected to have a parent or responsible Adult to supervise the junior at all times.

Membership of the club is decided on completion of the course and is currently £155 per adult and £75 per junior (under 18).   If a junior joins with an adult their membership is reduced from £75 to £45.  If you require a certificate for membership of another club, that is also awarded. Once you have taken up the place, and I have confirmed (Either by e-mail/ personal visitor or telephone), turn up on the date and time specified.  We do advice you to wear comfortable clothing, avoiding loose fitting clothing and no opened top shoes or sandals, Long Hair to be tied back ; you do not need any other specific equipment.
