Come and Shoot

Targeting Archery runs a series of Come-and-Shoot archery sessions. This is an excellent way to try your hand at archery without the need to take a full Beginners' Archery Course. These introductory sessions allow you to try out the wonderful sport of archery under the guidance of a fully qualified Archery GB Level-2 coach. Whether you have tried archery at other locations or are brand new to archery, you will be given all the safety information needed and where required you also get the education and coaching to start shooting archery in a safe environment under the guidance of an experienced archery coach. So these sessions are suitable for archers of all abilities from complete novice to existing archers wishing to continue to shoot on a recreational basis.

Gift Certificates

If you have a family member or friend that might like archery, why not get them a Gift Certificate for an Archery Beginners' Course or for one or more Have-a-Go sessions. These make great gifts for birthdays, anniversaries, retirement, well done gift and many more special occasions. Head over to our Gift Certificate page for more information and to order your certificates.

Kids Club

We make use of the junior sessions to run our Kids Club. Archery is an excellent sport for both junior school and senior school aged children, because it introduces so many mental and physical beneficial aspects to the children. Our Kids Club is run to introduce children to archery so they can benefit from aspects such as:

  • concentration
  • body coordination
  • hand-eye coordination
  • patience
  • mental focus
  • educational
  • discipline
  • self development
  • respect for others
  • social skills
  • regular light exercise
  • self confidence
  • friendly competition
  • relaxation
  • ... and so much more


COVID-19 cancellations

Due to the current coronavirus COVID-19 restrictions we cannot share equipment, so we regret that all Tuesday afternoon Come-and-Shoot archery sessions have been cancelled until further notice. We may not be able to restart during 2020 at all.

Come-and-Shoot sessions are split into various hour long lessons on Tuesday afternoons:

All Tuesday sessions cancelled until further notice.
Pop back occasionally for updates.

Prices are £5.00 for the one-hour sessions which is payable at the start of each lesson.

If you find that you enjoy archery through these sessions and would like to take it up on a less ad-hoc basis, the next step will be to take an Archery Beginners' Course followed by joining an archery club. Targeting Archery runs several such courses throughout the year. Students that successfully complete the course will then be able to (and encouraged to) join our Targeting Archery Club, or you have the option to join any other archery club in the UK using the Archery Certificate awarded at the end of the course. It is still allowable to continue to come to these Tuesday sessions even after becoming a club member.

See my Archery Beginners' Course page for information on our Archery Courses.
