Beginner’s Course

Beginner’s Course

At Solihull Archers, we love getting people into archery. It’s a great outdoor and indoor sport that requires skill and helps built focus and discipline.

From early weaponry and Robin Hood to The Hunger Games, Arrow and The Avengers, archery has always been a popular sport and craft.

We welcome anybody interested in archery to try our beginner’s course. You do not need any prior experience, our instructors are trained to take you through all of the basics to help you learn this sport.

To join an archery club in the UK you must first complete a beginners course. This is to ensure that you have the basic skills necessary to shoot a recurve bow and an appreciation of the safety requirements.
