Beginners Courses

We won’t be running any more until next Spring but you can register your interest and we’ll remind you nearer the time. Get in touch here

The May, July and September beginners courses have completed successfully despite rain and Covid meaning dates sometimes had to be flexible. Congratulations to all the newly fledged archers!

Gift Vouchers and Family Discounts available – Please ask for details

Phoenix Archers run beginner courses throughout spring and summer, it could not be easier to get a great introduction to archery.

We offer these courses over a series of weekends and, if there’s demand, an evening course , but other arrangements can occasionally be made in exceptional circumstances.

Phoenix Archers: Beginners course

All archery equipment required to shoot will be provided by the club for the duration of the course. You may also continue to borrow our equipment for a period of six weeks after you successfully complete your course, enabling you to commit to the sport before you have to buy your own.

Your particular equipment requirements are very specific to you and it’s definitely not a case of ‘one size fits all’.

You could, therefore, find that buying equipment too early could prove to be a mistake. We would highly recommend that you don’t buy anything until after the course.

When you do decide to buy your own equipment one of our members or instructors will be happy to go with you to an archery supplier and give you professional advice if you require it.

Firstly I would like you to extend my thanks to you and the guys for making the course great fun informative and for the warm welcome from everyone. I can honestly not think of an area for improvement in the way the course was handled and delivered

Really friendly bunch of people, had one beginners lesson and can honestly say we are hooked, after the 3 3hour lessons are done we are pretty sure we will be joining this club

Just wanted to write and say a big thanks to you, Jay and the whole team at Phoenix Archers for organising such a brilliant beginners course. It was so enjoyable and the professionalism and approach was sensational

We took our colony of Beaver Scouts to Phoenix Archers last night. Jan and the team at the archery couldn’t have been nicer. The boys came away from the 1 hour session buzzing with excitement after having one of the best nights of the term. I would highly recommend this club
