Have a Go Archery

Have a Go Archery

Aire Valley Archers run a number of ‘have a go’ archery events throughout the year. These events are open to all and give you a chance to shoot a few arrows for a small cost. They’re a great way for you to pick up a bow and see what it’s all about.

The events are run by our club members and coaches who will provide simple instructions and help you get to grips with the bow for a few minutes.

All would-be archers are supervised when shooting at these events, maintaining a safe and comfortable atmosphere for everyone.

Our events are often part of the Big Weekend event, which is coordinated by Archery GB and includes other Have a Go events at clubs across the country.

The Club will try and provide another Have A Go day(s) in Archery next year _ 2019.- it is planned for the Sunday of the August Bank Holiday weekend.  We rely heavily on our club members to support the running of this event so we do ask that as many members as possible turn up on the day – Normal club shooting will be suspended for the day and we will provide refreshments for all members attending.

This is an opportunity for the public to try Archery – meet club members and get information on the club and its activities.  We make a charge for the arrows shot to cover the cost of the upkeep of the equipment used – this will be Club Bows and Arrows used in training and not members equipment. Some members will bring there equipment along on the day for demonstration purposes so please feel free to ask any of our members for information and advice.



Please note that, due to the outdoor nature of the facilities, the events may be cancelled or postponed during adverse weather conditions.
