Beginners’ Courses

All our Summer courses have now ended and we have very limited for space indoors with a large waiting list

 Most clubs will only allow members after a beginner’s course, in order that safety may be maintained. At Sutton Archery Club we run three major beginners courses a year. Our next courses will start in May 2022.  The three courses will run for six weeks, the first three weeks are done in small groups with qualified ArcheryGB coaches to develop basic shooting technique and safety and the following three weeks are an introduction in target archery and improving techniques, with general supervision and coaching    

The next courses for archery will be run on  

1 3rd May 2022 (Tuesday from 7.00 pm till 9.00 pm)   

2 12th May 2022 (Thursdays from 7.00 pm till 9.00 pm)  

3 28th June 2022 (Tuesday from 7.00 pm till 9.00 pm)    

We can take a maximum of twenty people on our courses. If you are unable to attend the full six weeks due to weather, holidays, work, etc.we will carry over the programme for that week.   We do advice you to wear comfortable clothing, avoiding loose fitting clothing, long hair tied back and no opened top shoes or sandals ; you do not need any other specific equipment.

In Summer after these courses (up to September ) we are able to run a few taster sessions/ small courses on a Tuesday/ Thursday evenings from 7 till 9, but theses are run on an ad hoc basis depending on availability of coaches.  In winter (September to April) we do shoot indoors, but we are limited for space. Depending on the number of beginners that join the club, during the summer, will affect the spaces we have available. 

Indoors we shoot on a Tuesday(6 till 9) and a Friday (6 till 9) at Fairfax Academy School.   If you would like to attend one of these courses could you state which one you would like to attend and because the of limitation give alternative preferences. 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 courses do run for three weeks, and take place on the back field  at

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.
