  • Archery Session (QCW Range, Equipment & Instructor)

    In Autumn  2022, Mersey Weaver are due to complete the new  target sports  range located at Queen Charlottes Wood together with a stock of equipment suitable for Beavers through to Explorer aged young people and adults.

    We have a number of Permitted Archery Instructors who can be booked subject to availability, in advance, should you not have your own Permitted Instructor. Currently, they are only available by prior arrangement in evenings or at weekends.  One instructor is required for every 6 archers shooting; however, this ratio may be adjusted depending on the age of the archers as Beavers may need a higher ratio of supervision on the range. For most bookings at QCW we recommend 4 simultaneous archers. You can book the range and equipment, or  if you have your own equipment the range can be booked on its own here. Please note that we only hire the archery equipment for use at Queen Charlottes Wood.

    The standard package of 2 hours, 4 simultaneous archers. Mersey Weaver groups receive a discount which is applied during checkout provided that you log in with an account that has the appropriate membership profile applied. If you don’t see the discount and you are logged in, click here.
