Archery

archery

Our archery staff are all trained to Archery GB standard. The range has three bosses, so groups shoot three at a time with the rest of the group waiting behind a metal rail. We have tabs & braces for everyone to wear & we have some left handed bows. Please try to spread out any left handed members of your group so that they donít all end up in one group.

We have an outdoor archery range which is available all year round.  Equipment and instructors can be arranged, however pre-booking is essential. Our archery staff are all trained to Archery GB standard. The archery range distance is up to 30 metres.

Archery sessions can accommodate a maximum of 12 participants per session.  Additional sessions can be booked. Each session will cost £40 and last between 1hr and 1hr 30minutes.  The archery range currently has no lighting facilities and therefore can operate during daylight hours only. A parental consent form can be obtained by clicking here or by looking in our forms section.
