Have you always wanted to try archery? Here's your chance!!

We always encourage people to try archery! It’s a lot of fun and very rewarding. Start with a Come & Try Archery Class at Centenary Archers’ Club, then hone your skills with the two-day Beginner’s course. The club has beginner’s bows (recurve) suitable for everyone.

No matter what age or ability, everyone can learn. We have boys and girls as young as 8 years old, and adults well into retirement years who all participate in the sport either socially for exercise or competitively for awards. It can be a sport for the whole family to enjoy together.

The minimum age requirement is 8 to 9 years old. Everyone will need to be able to hold about 7 kg in their dominant (i.e. writing) hand for about 15 seconds – when they pull back the bow they will be holding about 6 kg in their fingers. We also prefer that at least one parent accompany children under 12 years old, at least for the first lesson. If a parent also wishes to join in the lesson, they are most welcome.

Everyone who wants to try archery must complete a Temporary Membership form. This ensures that everyone who goes on the field is covered by our insurance which is administered by the national governing body, Archery Australia. We want to make sure that everyone on the field is safe and covered against those rare accidents! This insurance stays valid for 4 additional visits after the class or course is finished and you are welcome to come and hire the club’s bows on Saturday afternoons for $20 per visit.
