Friars Gate Archers
Archery Club in East Sussex

Beginners Course

Newcomers to any sport will benefit from early professional tuition and archery is no exception.
FGA has operated a successful beginners course for many years which has provided hundreds of archers with their initial grounding in the fundamentals of the sport.

The next course will be rescheduled due to Coronavirus. More info to come.
Each course is run over three Sundays starting at 9:30 am and finishing about 11:30 am at Buxted Park.

Please register your interest in the course by contacting the course administrator ( who will confirm spaces and issue with the forms.

You are advised to book early to avoid disappointment.

The course fee is Juniors £45 (11 to 18) or Seniors £75 (18 and over) and due to the limited number of places available, spaces will be allocated strictly on a first come first served basis.
