Beginners’ Courses



As we are starting to come out of lockdown we are looking at starting some beginners course on a very reduced scale, only four targets with one person/household group per target.  The courses will run for three consecutive weeks with 2hours each session and a chance to extend this for a further 3 weeks depending on the situation..  The targets will be well spaced and equipment will de disinfected before and after use.  We will be following ArcheryGB safety guidelines.
We will be running bookable courses and if you would like to take up  one of these courses please could you let me know which session you would like to attend, and give an alternative, as we will only have four targets available

At Sutton Archery Club we normally run three major beginners courses a year., which start in May  The amended courses run for three weeks, these will be one person/household to a target with qualified ArcheryGB coaches to develop basic shooting technique and safety and after this, if you decide to join. You will join in the booking system, all our members go through at present

We are looking at the next courses for archery depending on response

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 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  and the possible extension after the three weeks

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.
