Every year, we hold an open day at our club, where we invite anyone to come along and have a go at archery.
There are demonstrations of shooting, the opportunity to chat to our members about the club and the sport, and of course you can have a go at shooting.
All of the proceeds from the event are donated to the Burton MENCAP CREST charity, so it's all for a great cause.
Our open day for 2020 is to be held on Sunday the 12th of April, from 1-4pm. There's no need to book in advance, just come along to our ground at the Washlands Sports Club to join in.
To have a go at archery, it costs £5 for adults and £3 for juniors. All equipment is provided, you'll be shown how to shoot with one-to-one coaching, and you can shoot as many arrows as there is time for.
Demonstrations will be on-going from our junior and senior archers, and our members are only too happy to talk about their equipment and favourite aspects of the sport.
Refreshments are available throughout the day, and all money raised is donated to the MENCAP CREST group.
