Join us for a Have a Go Evening!

Sleaford Maltsters Archery Club are pleased to offer a Have a Go session especially for our new neighbours in Osbournby!

Our Have a Go session is designed for people to try out the sport of archery. Archery is an ancient sport that will really help to improve your hand-eye coordination as well as being fun and rewarding to learn.

You will also have the chance to meet Hamish Turner, a Junior National Outdoor Champion for Barebow and Crossbow World Record holder.

A young rising star in the sport of Archery!

Our experienced instructors will help you to master the basic skills including the correct stance, handling of the bow, keeping a steady hand and maintaining focus. Once you have the hang of the bow and arrow, you’ll soon be hitting the target!

Join us on Friday 26th July, at the Old Football Field, London road, Osbournby.

We have two session times for you to choose from, 6.15pm to 7pm and 7pm to 7.45pm. Each session is limited to a maximum of 10 participants and includes the following:

  • Welcome to our club
  • All the necessary equipment, we have a variety of bows in different sizes
  • A full safety briefing
  • You will then be able to try shooting a bow, don’t worry you will be well supervised by your instructor!
