Have-a-go

As a club we exist to provide facilities for our members, but we do like to promote our sport so during the summer months we find ways to let people try archery.

In the past we have provided have-a-go sessions at Fairs and Fetes, however we are not a commercial organisation and a few members have been giving up their own time and transport to support these events, so we have reluctantly decided that we can no longer accept requests for have-a-gos, other than through a club member who is willing to sponsor and organise our presence at the event.

We realise that this may be a disappointment for people who just want to see if our sport is suitable for them without committing to a course of lessons, so we have made some changes to the way in which we provide have-a-go opportunities; please see below.



Taster Sessions

A taster session is a great introduction to our sport and will help you decide whether archery is for you, as well as being fun. We teach you how to shoot, tell you about our sport, provide refreshments and may even have a short competition.


Normally held on the third Saturday of the month from April to September at our shooting ground at Batheaston, Taster Sessions are suitable for anyone aged 12 or older (must be accompanied for the whole session by a parent or guardian if 18 or under). Sessions start at 9.45 and end at 12.15 and cost £20 per person, reducing to £17.50 per person for groups of 3 or more booked at the same time. This includes refreshments, equipment loan and tuition.


Reluctantly, due to the pandemic, we had to cancel our Taster Sessions for 2020. For 2021 we will watch the situation and restart when we feel it is safe for all involved; please keep an eye on this webpage for updates.


If you would like us to email you when we are going to restart, please email us via the Contacts page selecting Taster Sessions in the dropdown.
