FREE HAVE-A-GO SESSION: Saturday, 21st April 2018 1pm - 4pm
These are informal, easy-going, commitment-free opportunities to hold a bow in your hand and, under qualified supervision, shoot a few arrows at a target just 10 yards away. The session will be under cover, so you don't need to worry about April showers.
Burscough Archers is a warm and family-friendly, forward-looking club. Archery is a great sport for all ages and challenges both the mind and the upper body. And you'll just love the feeling you get when the arrow flies straight and true into the target.
It's an inexpensive sport and you can even use the club gear for a short period until you're sure that archery is for you.
The idea is that you come and "have a go" at archery and then you might want to enrol on a beginners' course. There'll be no pressure, no commitment and no cost on the day. But, if you wish to join Burscough Archers or indeed any other Archery GB affiliated club you will need to complete a beginner's course.
For more information on the beginners' courses just click on the "Training" tab above.
Our range is open to members seven days a week from 9 am until dusk.
Our membership subscription includes insurance, club membership and membership of Archery GB, Northern Counties Archery Society and Lancashire Archery Association.
The full-year membership subscription rates are:
- for members aged 10 to 17 - ₤28.20
- for members aged 18 to 24 - ₤77.00
- for members 25 and over - ₤110.00
As a member, you will be able to shoot using the club equipment for a short period. Indeed, in the early months of your development, we discourage you from buying your own kit as so much changes physically as you continue to shoot:
- your draw length (which drives the length of your arrow and the physical size of your bow)
- your draw weight (which drives both the rigidity of your arrow and characteristics of your bow)
- your posture (which also affects your draw length)
All of these change most notably in the early months as you develop, making early purchase of your own gear very inadvisable. Additionally, delaying purchase gives you a personal opportunity to feel sufficiently committed to the sport to justify the additional cost.
So come along on Saturday, 21st April 2018 (1pm - 4pm) and prepare to become an archery addict!
