Whether it is the first time you have picked up a bow or not, everyone can enjoy our fun 45 minute Archery sessions. Our qualified instructors make the session fun and informative, working to individual requirements at each session.
Learn about the equipment from bows and arrows to bracers and fletchings. The equipment comes in various sizes so it is suitable for adults and children. This therefore allows Hadleigh Park instructors to offer family sessions as well.
After a short walk to one of the fields, set in the beautiful surroundings of Hadleigh Park, you will start your session with an brief health and safety talk. Also learn the terminology required to have a fun and safe Archery session. Then for the fun stuff! Everyone will practice loading arrows and shooting at the target…warning it can get competitive!!
