Perth Archery club is a non-discriminatory club. We have Junior and senior members and can adapt archery for a wide variety of disabilities. We are run on a voluntary basis with club members running an elected committee.
How to get in to Archery
So, you’ve tried archery on holiday or at one of our come and try days, or been inspired by the Hunger Games or watching the Olympics/Paralympics. Or do you need an activity for your Duke of Edinburgh Award?.
The first step is to do an archery beginners course.
We are frequently asked what the right age to start archery is. We are happy to take a child of any age as long as they can pull a bow and understand the safety. If you are not sure please get in touch with us to book a free assessment for your child! If your child is under 8 please book an assessment before booking a course.
We run beginners courses twice a year. Our course is normally a one full day session for dedicated coaching to show you the basics of archery and teach you the safety aspects.
You then have five further sessions to introduce you to archery within the club.
We can provide beginners courses over four club sessions for those who cannot make a full day weekend course – just contact us to arrange this – we typically only run one course per year of this type.
Courses are typically run in the spring & summer, and are subject to the availability of our venue and volunteer coaches.
Our next course will be organised in Spring 2024 for our outdoor venue.
Please fill in the form below to be placed on the waiting list. Once courses are organised you will receive links to the Eventbrite pages where you can book your place.
Courses are £50 per person. This includes your course and follow on sessions.
Unless otherwise specified our courses take place at our outdoor range:
Doo’cot Park, Kincarrathie House Drive, Pitcullen Crescent, Perth PH2 7HX.
Courses are organised and supervised by our team of ArcheryGB Level 2 (Development) Coaches..
Coaching is available at most archery sessions by appointment and will help you to develop and improve as an archer.
Parents are welcome to leave their child at archery/beginners courses unless they require help/supervision.
We provide all equipment for beginners, you only need to bring yourself and a packed lunch (if full day course)!
Photos may be taken at courses for use in media releases or coach training. If you do not want to be photographed please let us know.
Toilets are available.
You can also carry on using the club equipment until you are ready to purchase your own.
We will be happy to measure you for equipment and can offer advice on what to buy. Please do not buy any equipment without advice from a coach!
There is an annual membership fee (imposed on us by Archery GB, our governing body, to cover insurance etc). These fees are, at the moment:-
juniors ~£25 a year and for adults ~£85 (there are discounts for disabled members, Under 25s and families)
There is also a monthly fee for club membership of £12.50 (Adults) £10 (Children) which is payable by Standing Order.
We currently shoot twice a week, at our outdoor range at Doo’cot Park, on a Wednesday and Friday evening, with sessions starting at 6pm and finishing when dark. Indoor shooting usually begins in September and is on a Friday evening and Sunday afternoon.
We would also appreciate some feed back after the completion of, a future course, as to how you felt about the course and, if you are not joining the club, the reasons why. This will allow us to improve any areas that are to be considered not up to our high standards.
