Beginners courses are open from the age of 12 years upwards.
To begin your Archery adventure you will firstly need to complete a beginners course. These are run by our club coaches at set intervals throughout the year. These are completed outdoors during the spring and summer and at our indoor venue during autumn and winter when it’s too dark to shoot outdoors.
After completing the course you will understand the basics of archery and be able to shoot over short distances safely and with a good basic technique.
When the course is over you will have the opportunity to join Welbeck Archers as a club member and continue with archery as a hobby or, if you want to, taking part in competitions all the way to representing Great Britain.
