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.

For 2022 our Taster Session dates are:

  • Sat, 16 April
  • Sat, 21 May
  • Sat, 16 July
  • Sat, 20 August
  • Sat, 17 September

Please note – if you are an established archer wishing to join the club, please contact the Membership Secretary.

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 Fêtes, 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.
