Club bows and arrows are available to hire for those who do not have their own equipment, are just starting out, and are looking to experience archery before making any commitments.
A fee is payable to cover
insurance and an additional fee will be payable for each club arrow lost or damaged. A
shoot fee is applicable on designated “Club Shoot” days. New members are expected to purchase their own equipment by the end of their probationary period.
It is advisable to contact one of our coaches
before purchasing a bow as they will be able to steer you in the right
direction as to what weight and draw length you require. Better to purchase a bow that suits you as
you will be able to shoot this comfortably
and will in turn enjoy the sport more
if you do not spend all your time
looking for lost arrows.
The club runs a canteen during
every shoot with a variety of food and drinks available for sale at reasonable
prices. (No EFTPOS available).
A shoot generally runs from 9am
to around 2pm with a lunch break in between. Members are requested to be at the
