"The Beginner's course is the best beginner's course that I have experienced. I say that with a career as an educator behind me, with many years of teaching, training and coaching (not archery) under my belt. It struck a perfect balance between theory, practical, safety and fun and we had lots of tips from experienced and very enthusiastic senior members of the club, a very welcoming bunch."

"We did the "Have A Go" archery session on a Saturday at the Downside youth centre in November and had Roger as an instructor.
