Burscough Archers

Theory Nights

During the winter, we run Theory Nights on the second Thursday of each month. These are social sessions with a serious content. Guest speakers, often from Archery UK, or our own members will deliver a short presentation on an archery topic in a dedicated room in one of the local pubs, followed by a Q&A. These are a great way for new members to get to know others besides their Buddies and for established members to learn something.

Sarah organises them and they are well publicised through our WhatsApp group.

Beginners' Courses: 2024

Below are the starting dates for our Beginners' Courses for 2024. Each Course is run by one or more of our AGB qualified coaches and each session lasts approximately one-and-a-half hours on a Sunday afternoon from 2.00pm until 3.30pm.
The cost for each four week course is £75 for adults aged 18 and over, and £60 for ages 10 to 17.
Unfortunately we cannot accept anyone under the age of 10.
All equipment is provided, you just need to bring a waterproof in case of inclement weather and wear stout footwear. Your entire feet must be protected at all times, so open-toed sandals and slingback shoes are not permitted.
Please make sure you can attend every Sunday afternoon for the duration of the course before you book. If you can't then please book on a later course as without completing each session you will not be awarded your certificate of completion, and will not be able to join a club.
No refunds will be given for missed sessions.
