I have collected a series of videos from World Archery and our friends at Merlin Archery that will hopefully help you get the most from your course. I have organised them into the 6 weeks so you can identify with what you have learned in that week and from the handouts I have provided.

If you have any questions in regards to the course or any element of recurve target archery please don’t hesitate to ask.

Happy shooting

  1. We were advised that there would be a 4 week beginners course starting in June 2022, so far we have received no information regarding this despite l expressing interest at the ‘taster’ day.
