Beginners Course





To join our club you need to successfully complete a Beginners Course that will teach you the basics of archery.


Wight Bowmen only run beginners courses during the winter months in Autumn and Spring and all equipment is provided.


Courses run for 3 consecutive Saturdays from 2:00pm to 5:00pm and to successfully pass the course you must attend all three of these sessions. The course is followed by a mentored shoot with the whole club on the following Sunday, where you will get to meet other members and see how our club is organised.


You need to be 11 years of age and over to undertake a course with us and join our club.


Autumn Course: October 13th, 20th and 27th, mentored shoot 4th November.

Spring Course: January 5th, 12th and 19th, mentored shoot 27th January

If you are interested in undertaking one of our courses please use our “Contact Us” form to enquire and you will be sent full details of how to apply.
