Purchasing your own bow is a big decision not to be taken lightly and we discourage new members from buying equipment until they have completed the course, you need to have some experience before you can properly select the best equipment to suit your shooting style.
Our archery sessions are held at our new grounds, Moorend, Hambrook, Bristol, BS16 1SW
As our courses are outdoors we are at the mercy of the Great British weather, we shoot in most conditions but if it is not safe to shoot the tournament will have to be postponed, we will give you as much notice as possible via the email that you use to sign up to the course.
Please make sure you dress appropriately for the weather, warm clothes and waterproofs will make your shooting much more comfortable if it rains (don't forget sun cream, just in case).
Archery is a wonderfully adaptable sport and we are able to cater to almost everyone, if you have a disability or require any additional assistance you must let us know in advance of the course. We cannot guarantee that we will be able to successfully adapt our sessions if we are not informed of requirements in advance.
Our indoor venue is fully accessible.
A key asset of our club is its large coaching team and we will continue to support and advise you, whatever level you shoot at. We offer continuing courses to help you improve your archery as well as coach supported shooting sessions if you're just looking for a little bit of advice.
If you cancel your course more than 28 days prior to the start of the course we will charge a £5 administration fee on a refund, more than 14 days prior to the start of the course we will refund 50% of the course fee, unfortunately we are not able to refund the cost of courses cancelled with less than 14 days notice, if we are given more than 14 days notice it may be possible to transfer you to another available course. If you have used voucher code during your initial booking and this code is not valid for the course you are transferred onto you will be required to pay the difference.
A substitute who meets the criteria for the course can be named at any time before the course.
