Our Sunday 5 week beginners archery course is designed for beginners, but we can also cater for archers returning to the sport after some time out. The price includes all equipment, insurance, coaching, and at least 5 hours of tuition.
The groups are kept fairly small so everyone gets plenty of individual attention as well as group tuition.
Please note these courses are designed for adults, generally our minimum age is 14 years old. Anyone under the age of 18 will require a parent of guardian to also book on to the course and shoot alongside them. For younger children please take a look at our Children & Family Archery Club.
Our Sunday 5 week beginners archery course is run at our indoor venue in Archway North London: Caxton House Community Centre, 129 St.John’s Way, Archway, N19 3RQ. Please double check which start time you have booked for as we have sessions at 1:15pm and 2:45pm.
The Courses Cover:
The two main styles of recurve archery; Barebow and Olympic-style sighted. During the course you will also learn about safety, archery etiquette, basic equipment knowledge, scoring, and shooting at the full indoor distance of 20 yards
On completion of this course we hope that you will continue to shoot with us on Monday and Friday evenings, or Sunday afternoons. Although having done this course, you will also be eligible to join any Archery GB club in the UK.
Great experience, really welcoming and friendly crew, first time ‘archering’, got the bug now …

It is just perfect, if you want to get an idea of it. Nice place, awesome teachers, and the equipment is right what you need to get a great starting. I strongly recommend it.

Great archery club: lovely teachers for kids and adults alike. Nice atmosphere in the club. I’d recommend Experience Archery if you are looking to get into archery or find a nice club to shoot.
I really enjoyed the course, I learnt a lot from Austin, all I need to do now is keep practicing to get my technique perfected. The environment is safe and clean, you get to meet many nice and friendly people that are always keen to offer their advice. I would recommend this course to other people.

I tried out the 5 week beginners course with Austin, not only was the course a new experience but Austin made it great. I would recommend the course for anyone.
A great introduction to archery. The teachers are organised, kind, and explain things well. Groups are small enough that you get individual attention. The kit’s in good nick and they’ll also give you sound advice on buying your own if you want to. This course made me confident about shooting safety, and I built up enough skills over five weeks to be motivated to go on with the sport.

I did the 5 week beginners course with Austin. I felt very encouraged and really enjoyed the experience . I learnt a lot from the course and from Austin. I just need lots of practice to get myself used to things . I had always wanted to do Archery and I am so happy I did this course. It came at the perfect time and I fell in love with it. I look forward to practicing and getting better at it in the future.
I would recommend this course for anyone who has always wanted to try archery out but never got round to doing it. It’s never too late to start! The instructors are very informative, friendly and good at explaining. You will get plenty of time to shoot and fellow club members are very accommodating for beginners. Even though my group was full, there was still space for lots of individual attention during the course. The club environment is great and there’s lots of friendly people ready to help you out. I had a very enjoyable experience; I’m keen to continue shooting and improve.

I really enjoyed my archery lessons on a Sunday afternoon. The instructor was very patient and informative and now I have the bug will continue to shoot..
Would definitely recommend this to anyone who has always wanted to try archery!!
Excellent course: comprehensive, well paced, good equipment provided throughout and most of all exceptionally patient and enthusiastic instruction from Kevin. Also Lee (club founder) very accommodating of my tricky work schedule; can’t wait to continue regularly once schedule allows.
We had great fun on the course. Good, clear instruction and good emphasis on safety. I’d definitely recommend the Sunday sessions if you’ve ever fancied having a go at archery.

This is a fantastic entry point into the world of archery. The core of this is the tutors. Kevin specifically is a talented tutor, really friendly, makes sure everyone is included and teaches at a great pace, often giving each student some great pointers and one to one tips. I’m really glad I made the decision to sigh up. Simply I cannot fault this course , give it a try !

Did this course with my son, we had the best time, really good coaching now we’re hooked and will be back especially as my son is scoring better than me and I need to beat him.
Sheldon Collins –
Absolutely enjoyed every minute of this beginner’s course. Great teacher. Very patient and encouraging. Great value for money
The course is well structured with great (and patient) teaching. I’d done a taster at a different club a few years ago and during the first week I could tell the instruction was much more in-depth. Its given me the skills and the desire to take archery up as a hobby.

This course was so much fun! The instructors were friendly and gave constructive feedback on how to improve.
Fantastic archery club with great instructors and other friendly archers shooting with you! I have just completed my five week beginners course and had a blast throughout. So much so I was eagerly awaiting the next week’s lesson as soon as the last one was over and was constantly watching archery videos on YouTube in between lessons (seriously, you’ll be hooked!)
I particularly want to mention our fantastic instructor Lee, who was patient, very knowledgeable, and above all, extremely friendly. Suffice to say I am now a member of the club and will be attending on a weekly basis to shoot (which also is a fantastic price, including the hiring of bows and all equipment!)
So if you are at all interested in archery and can get to this centre, don’t hesitate to try a have-a-go session and then sign up to the beginners course; but I warn you, you WILL get addicted!

Do yourself a favour and take the 5 week course! Lee was great and I discovered a new passion.
Booked for myself and my partner for his Birthday. We had the BEST time! Lee is a knowledgeable, friendly, approachable teacher whose sessions were relaxed and all about improvement. COVID distancing ventilation etc. were in place. My partner has found his new favourite hobby and I’ll be developing the skill for my actors CV! Thanks so much Lee! 😊🏹
Loooved this course. I was a bit worried that I wouldn’t be strong enough but its all really in the technique, you’ll be surprised. Great teachers! Thanks so much, will see you again! 🙂

I took the 1 day “Have a go” taster session with a friend and we both immediately signed up for the full 5 week course! If you’ve landed on this page, you’re already thinking about it… consider this the nudge you needed to sign up. It’s definitely worth it and the people are really friendly and accomodating.

I found this course was perfect for me, I always wanted to try archery out but never got round to doing it, the weekend options and timings perfectly suited my schedule too.
Lee, our instructor was very informative, friendly and good at explaining techniques, posture and several other tips to improve on your performance. We had plenty of time to work on our shooting during the course, pretty much from day one.
I was a bit conscious about shooting arrows from such an early stage, but I soon realised that, with the coaching and supervision provided on site, archery was an utterly safe and much enjoyable activity to practice.
The size of our group, six people, allowed for a smooth practice flow as well as one-to-one coaching whilst shooting; making the whole experience more rewarding with every little improvement on my shooting technique and the arrows closing in to the central target.
At the end of the course, Lee promptly provided ample resources and recommendations on equipment to purchase if you are to continue shooting, as well as the steps to follow if you would like to keep on doing this with the club.
Overall a really enjoyable experience I would recommend to everyone willing to have a go at archery as a sport of just for fun. The time literally flies on the course days and I am really glad I finally decided to give archery a go!

The course was really good fun. Lee and Phil were great instructors. I am hooked!

A very good five session course with patient experienced instructors, a follow up course for passed beginners would be a good thing.
Amazing experience. The program is very detailed and yet somehow they managed to keep it really relaxed and fun. Also, didn’t think we’d be able to shoot full distance by the end of 5 weeks and actually be hitting 9s and 10s consistently, but we all did. Thank you very much.
