Redhill Archers

GENERAL INFORMATION

Our club, REDHILL ARCHERS, was formed in 1971 just prior to moving to Wythall Park, Silver Street, and our present shooting ground.

During the summer months we have Club Nights on Tuesday and Thursday.

The field is available at all times for members who wish to shoot, subject to certain safety regulations.

During the winter (October to March) we are able to shoot indoors in Park Hall on Thursday evenings.

 

BEGINNERS

To enable an absolute beginner to decide whether archery is his/her sport we invite anyone interested to attend a Beginners Course (4 or 5 sessions - approx 2 hours each). All necessary equipment is available and you will be given instruction in the basics of shooting. You will be allowed to practice under the supervision of a club member who will put you right, answer questions and help if you are in any difficulties.

Beginners age 8 – 15 years (inc) MUST BE ACCOMPANIED BY A PARENT OR RESPONSIBLE ADULT AT ALL TIMES.

To cover costs and insurance we charge a fee of £45 for the course.

Since the Olympics there has been much interest in our sport so please check our website if you wish to register your interest.

If you decide that you wish to continue in the sport and become a member of Redhill Archers the club equipment is available for your use until such time as you acquire your own, as and when you feel ready.
