How do I get into archery?

There are more than 1,000 archery clubs in the UK, so if you want to get into the sport there should be one close enough for you to have a go.

Most of these clubs hold introductory classes with fully-qualifed coaches to help you learn the basics.

Most clubs do have a minimum age limit for potential archers, but that's normally around eight years old, so it's a good idea to check with your nearest club before you go along.

To find out where your nearest club is, click on the link on the right hand side of this page for the Grand National Archery Society.

They run the sport in the UK and look after about 25,000 members.
