Beginners Courses


West Windsor Archers will not be running any Beginners Courses until 2022. This is to allow the club and coaches to concentrate on assisting the current members to recover their form and strength after the time lost due to the Covid pandemic.

West Windsor Archers has fully qualified coaches, assistant coaches and Archery Leaders who make themselves available to run beginners courses several times each year for adults and juniors over 9 years of age. Courses take place during the summer on Monday evenings from 6pm at Dedworth Middle School, Smiths Lane, Windsor, SL4 5PE. During the winter months, courses run indoors on a Thursday at Eton Wick Road, Windsor, SL4 6LT in the sports hall behind the library.

All necessary equipment is provided. The courses last for 6 weeks, teaching the basics of safe shooting including:

  • Equipment setup
  • Range layout and range safety
  • Suitable warm up and cooldown exercises
  • Correct form and shot process
  • Archery scoring
  • Shooting etiquette
  • Competitive archery

Following a successful Beginners Course assessment, beginners are invited to join WWA as full members. Other archers e.g those returning to the sport, are required to pass an initial assessment before being invited to join. The teaching doesn’t finish there however, the coaches and assistant coaches will continue to help and advise when you move across to the main club, ensuring that you receive as much on-going tuition and advice as you need.

Our next course is to be announced, please contact us using the details on the Contact page to register your interest. Course Fees (for the 2019 season) are £65.00 per person. Juniors between 9 and 16 years MUST be accompanied at all times by an adult.
