25th August 2020: COVID-19 update. Unfortunately we have not been able to successfully complete plans for running our September course under covid-safe guidelines and have had to cancel this course. It is possible that we will be able to run our November course, which is indoors, but beware that restrictions for indoor shooting are even more limiting. Please email beginners@harlequinbowmen.org.uk to be put on our waiting list for this or future courses in 2021, which we hope will run as normal.


We run several beginners courses every year, led by fully qualified archery coaches and with all equipment provided. Each course consists of four 3 hour sessions, from 9.00-12.00pm, which must ALL be completed to pass the course, .

Once registration is open please download and email completed registration forms to the coaching officer at: beginners@harlequinbowmen.org.uk

Courses cost £50 for adults and £30 for juniors.

Payment can be made by BACS transfer or by cheque. See form for details.

General enquiries about our courses before registration opens should also be sent via this email address. Thanks!
