Beginners coaching at our field

Lutterworth Archery Club runs regular courses for beginners, returners to archery and for those simply wanting to improve, with most courses being run over a weekend, 10am until 4pm each day.

The course costs £50 per person for the whole weekend.

If you would like to register your interest for a course just use our Beginners Contact Us form to get in touch.  Places must be pre-booked and are limited and allocated on a first come basis.

We also run bespoke “Have-a-Go” sessions for small groups.  If you would like to arrange such a session please again use the Contact Us form to find out more.

Qualified coaching

The course is overseen by a qualified coach who has a current DBS check certificate and appropriate safeguarding certificates.

The club’s insurance covers you during the course. After this you will need to become an affiliate to Archery GB (formerly The Grand National Archery Society – usually referred to as GNAS).  

Membership discount

It would be great if you also felt like joining the club after the course is over.  If you do, there is a discount of £10 for members who complete the course.  Membership is on a pro-rata basis for new members. We have no additional shooting fees until we move indoors for the winter.

Archery has a handicap system so you can monitor your own progress, and most clubs including ours shoot competitive rounds from time to time (see the Archery GB Classification Tables here).  There are also various shoots around the county and the country that you can enter.  

Shoot at almost any GB archery club

As long as you are a member of Archery GB, any archery club in the country should be happy to welcome you to shoot with them.
