When you have completed a Beginners’ course, your coaches will advise you on suitable equipment – do not buy equipment before starting a beginners’ course!
A set of standard recurve equipment for an archer can start from around £300 (2012) although other bows styles can be cheaper. We would recommend going to an outlet to be correctly fitted up with your first archery kit. Do not buy equipment “unseen”, i.e. from eBay etc.
You should join an archery club to ensure that you have insurance when you are shooting and, of course, somewhere to shoot.
Soar Valley Archery Club membership fees are based on the age of the person joining (adult or junior) and this includes membership of SVAC, ArcheryGB and affiliation to County and Regional Archery Associations.
