Buying your Own Gear



We strongly recommend that you do not rush out and buy a bow from trading post, eBay, garage sale or second-hand dealer. You don’t have to rush out and buy your own archery equipment initially. The club has a range of equipment that it hires out to beginners and members. After the completion of the Beginners Course the cost is $20 per day for equipment hire. Novice archers and beginners are given sound advice from senior coaches on the right equipment to purchase. The first decision you have to make is what type of bow you want to shoot, and we can help with that to Course Fee Payment.
