Beginners' Courses

Learn to Shoot With a Traditional Longbow

Would you like to learn to shoot safely and competently with a longbow?

Our Club runs beginners’ courses between April and August. We provide all the equipment and coaching. Courses last six weeks and are held on Monday evenings between 6 pm and 8 pm at Preston Grasshoppers Rugby Union ground where we shoot outdoors.

To begin with you will be shooting at 15 to 20 yards and once you have mastered the technique you will be able to shoot at longer distances.

Courses include: –

  • Tuition in longbow shooting technique
  • Use of the club’s equipment
  • BLBS insurance
  • Instruction in Safety and BLBS Rules of Shooting

Minimum age is 11 and anyone under 18 years of age must be accompanied by a parent/guardian at all times.

We are presently working on our Summer 2019 offerings.
When we have finalised the details, they will be published on this page along with the updated form.
In the meantime we thank you for your patience.
