We welcome beginners to our Club, we run courses to suit an individual's needs. Our beginner's tuition is 1 to 1, we do not 'block' teach, this way a novice archer can gain better knowledge, understanding and enjoyment of archery. Some clubs seem to cram in as many beginner's as they can, we do not feel this is the way. Over some years of being in other clubs before we founded Sherwood Forresters we noticed that beginners who shot with seasoned archers on a 1 to 1 basis tended to gain more from the experience. They enjoyed the archery more, joined the clubs and stayed in them, whereas 'block' teaching only seemed to swell the coffers of the clubs, as beginners did not seem to join. We enjoy our longbow archery and want our beginners to enjoy it too. We don't expect you to wait 8 or 9 months for a block course, we teach 1 to 1 all the year round apart from July and August.
A course comprises 4
sessions to learn the basics of shooting, safety and etiquette. The sessions
can be arranged to suit and can be spread over several weeks if necessary.
We supply the bows, arrows and equipment.
We only shoot traditional English longbows.
