The Archery Club at Royal Holloway aims to provide a relaxing and casual experience open to all skill levels. Archery is an incredibly inclusive sport for all abilities. A large number of our new members each year are complete beginners to the sport and decide to join via one of our Beginners Courses! If you are looking for more of a serious competitive experience, we compete in BUCS Indoor and Varsity, and will be taking part in the SEAL League for the first time this year!
For our taster sessions at the weekend, please arrive at the start of these session times, as we always have very long queues and we can't gurantee you a chance at shooting if you arrive in the middle of a session.
Beginner courses consist of three sessions to teach you the safety, technique and etiquette of shooting. You are required to buy Beginner's membership (£30), and you will be emailed once it becomes available on this page. All beginners must complete a course in order to join the sport and our club.
The course is on a first-come, first-served basis. Please fill in our sign-up form to add your name to our records. If we become oversubscribed for this course, it is possible that we will hold additional smaller courses for the students who could not make the main course.
Dates of Course - October 5th, 12th and 19th. (Three consecutive Saturdays) 15:00-16:30 at the Sports Hall on campus.
Course Sign-up Form: CLOSED
Indoor Practice - Saturdays, 3:00-4:30pm in the Sports Hall on campus (additional slots will be announced on Facebook if we secure any)

Of course, there's more to sports clubs than just training, and we're no different! We run social events throughout the year, from our Freshers BBQ at the start of the year, Christmas Meal, to our themed shoots and movie nights, or just grabbing some waffles at Kaspas after sessions, there's something for everyone to get involved with!
