Courses for Beginners

Due to the current situation with coronavirus Dover Castle Archers is cancelling all training courses for the time being. If we can reinstate these, new dates will be posted on this website. We are sorry we have had to take this decision but I am sure you will understand. Please check back during the summer for news. Please do not apply until dates appear.

The Club has three Archery GB qualified coaches and they provide a number of training courses for beginners. Juniors are welcome from the age of 12 years upwards, but those under 18 must be accompanied by a parent, or other responsible adult.

We charge £48 for a course of three lessons of approximately 2 hours each. Equipment is provided.

Afterwards, if you find that archery isn’t for you, there will be no pressure or obligation to join the Club.

When you decide to join us after completing the course, you’ll need to pay the annual membership fees which might be reduced depending upon the time of year.

You’ll find Club Members are more than willing to offer advice on choosing equipment and on improving your archery skills.  Don’t be tempted to buy any archery equipment before having some lessons!!!

All equipment is provided. Once you have applied you’ll be e-mailed details of how to pay; when payment is received your place will be confirmed. We’ll try to ensure lessons are on your preferred dates but if changed you’ll be given an option of another date or a full refund.
