Feb 23 – New beginner’s course dates announced!

We’re delighted to announce that we are ready to accept bookings for our third beginner’s course of 2023.

The dates are as follows:

Sunday 16 April, 1pm to 3pm
Sunday 23 April, 1pm to 3pm
Sunday 30 April, 1pm to 3pm

All sessions will be held on the sports field Harris Sports Centre. Places are limited to 6 attendees and are allocated on a first-come, first-served basis.

Both adults and children over the age of 9* are welcome to attend. For those under the age of 18, a parent or guardian will need to be present during each session.

The costs for attending the course are:

Under 18, £60
Over 18, £70

*If there is any doubt in your mind that your child will be able to pull a bow, please do not book as places are non-refundable. Instead, contact us via email and we will arrange a date for your child to come and test out our bows. If all goes well, you can always book them onto a course in the summer.

All sessions will be held on the field at Harris Academy. Please use the larger car park at the back of the school by the fields (CV22 6EA). Please be aware that on Sundays there are church groups also using this car park – drive slowly.

When booking, please fill out all the details before you pay. To do so, click on “Get a ticket” at the top of the page and click through, adding the details as you go.

Once you have filled out your details, please pay within 3 days to secure your place. After 3 days, if you have not paid we will release your space for someone else to book.

We currently only accept payment through bank transfer. All the payment details are listed on the ClubEvent page. Please use your name as a reference.

Because the course is in April, we are beholden to the weather. Please bring a waterproof jacket and shoes. If the rain is too heavy, we will have to call off the session and reschedule. We’ll let you know about this via email/text as soon as we can. If it’s sunny, don’t forget your sunscreen, hat and drink!

If you have any questions, please contact us at secretary@rugbyarchers.co.uk.

Feb 23 – Archers take the pot at “Poker Night” fun shoot!

Cards on the table – this fun shoot was much harder than the previous one’s we’ve had this season. From 18 metres, members had to score 21 (or less) by shooting at regular sized playing cards using between 2-4 arrows. Score over 21 and they busted, under and the points started decreasing.

However, as they always do, our members took on the challenge admirably and 4 people across the two sessions emerged victorious. Congratulations to Steve (Barebow), Tom (Recurve), Barbara (Barebow) and Louis (Recurve). Don’t spend your chocolate coins too fast!
