UPCOMING EVENT - Wigan & Orrell WA720 + H2H

Learn Archery

Do you want to learn archery?

We run several beginners’ courses throughout the year.  Each 6-week course covers Archery GB safety rules, equipment, warming up and cooling down exercises, shooting techniques, etiquette, scoring, and tournament opportunities.  All equipment is provided and the course is covered by Archery GB Insurance.  Recurve (Olympic style) bows are mainly used during the course, with the opportunity to try out other bow styles such as compound and longbow.

It is advised that beginners do not buy their own equipment until the end of the course, at which time we will measure your draw length, offer advice on arrow length, and recommend the size and draw weight of your bow.  Incorrect equipment can seriously affect performance and even cause serious injury.

The course costs £70 and consists of six sessions, usually on Friday evenings, both indoor and outdoor.

The outdoor venue from April to September is:

Wigan RUFC
Wingates Road
Leyland Mill Lane

The indoor venue for October to March is:

Standish Community High School
Kenyon Road
