Aspiring archers of all abilities and ages can have a go, guided by our amazing team of qualified archery coaches and volunteers. Archery is one of the most accessible sports - there are no limits to who can enjoy shooting a bow and arrows.
Archery has many health benefits for both body and mind, developing physical strength and fitness and boosting confidence. Sharing your love of archery with new people is a great way to build your club identity and sense of community as members come together to welcome aspiring archers.
Start Archery Week will return in 2023! Events will take place from 6-14 May across the UK at clubs and other providers.
