Archery Session (QCW Range, Equipment & Instructor)

From: £68.00

The indicative price above is for a 2 hour session which provides sufficient time to handle up to 18 participants as  3 groups of 6 simultaneous archers on the shooting line. The actual cost of your booking will be shown below after you select the number of simultaneous archers and the length of your desired session. Scout Groups/Explorer Scout Units 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.

The target sports  range located at Queen Charlottes Wood has a covered shooting area 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/needs of the archers (e.g. Beavers may need a higher ratio of supervision on the range). For most bookings at QCW we recommend 6 simultaneous archers.

Points of Note:

  • We require that an adult volunteer from the group stay on the range with the instructor over the course of the session.
  • Proof of parental/guardian/carer’s permission for participant to take part in the archery session is available for review by the instructor prior to the start of the session.
  • Details of any participant who is on medication and/or may require additional support must be provided well in advance of the session so that any additional support requirements can be assessed and managed.

If you have your own qualified Archery Instructor and equipment, the range can be booked on its own here.

Product Description

Target archery is an internationally-recognised sport which features in both the Commonwealth and Olympic Games. This is the most popular form of the sport where, as its name suggests, participants shoot at static targets in order to score points. The size of target used, and the distance over which they are shot at, varies. A round consists of a number of ends of arrows. This is the number of arrows that each archer shoots prior to the scores being recorded and the arrows collected. When shooting indoors, ends normally consist of three arrows, and outdoors, six.

In order to achieve consistent scores, the archer aims to ensure that they are consistent in what they do for every shot. This includes standing in the exact same position, drawing the bowstring back the same distance, aiming at the same spot and so on. Many archers only ever compete against themselves, aiming to better their own personal best scores. Others will enter competitions and tournaments at local club level, county level or even national level.
