On successful completion of the course, you will be awarded a certificate of competency and will be able to join an archery club, hopefully Belvoir Archers. From our recent course in April, we have already had 8 new members join the club, with at least 3 more planning to join in the next couple of weeks.


You will need to wear suitable clothing for the day

You must wear suitable footware which must fully enclose the toes (no open toed shoes or sandles).

If you have long hair, ensure that you can tie it back or put a hat on to keep it from tangling with the equipment. If you have any facial pearcings, we request that you take them out whilst shooting, you don’t want to catch one of them as you release the arrow – ouch!!
