… and whoever else looking to practice archery. Welcome to the website of Southampton University Archery Club (or SUAC for short).
We’ll be at the Bunfight on the 25th (today), so come and find us and have a chat! Our stand will be close to the entrance of the Jubilee sports hall, where the rest of the sports’ stands will be. Now’s the time to come and meet us in person and have us answer any questions you might have. But don’t worry if you don’t catch us there, you’ll have another chance at the taster session, or our email is always waiting.
In case you missed us at the bunfight, go here to sign up to our mailing list.
On Sunday the 29th of November between 3:30pm and 5:30pm we will be holding an archery taster session in the Old Sports Hall, to give people a taste of what the sport is like. It’s totally free and you don’t have to bring anything, just be careful of loose clothing that could get caught in the string. Turn up at any point of the session, talk to us and we’ll get you set up to shoot a few arrows.
The Old Sports Hall is on the 1st floor of the SUSU building (number 42). To get there, go in through the main doors and straight down to the bottom of the stairs. Turn right and go down some more stairs, down past the squash courts, to the very bottom. Then, turn right, go down the rightmost corridor and follow it to the end, turning right again along the way. There should also be some signs along the way to guide you.
If you are not a confident archer, you must first complete a beginners’ course.
Our beginners’ course will run from 1 Oct to 9 Nov, and costs £30, which must be brought to the first session. The course is one hour and a quarter per week, during which we will teach you the proper, safe technique for target archery.
If you want to sign up, you can talk to us at the bunfight or taster session, or email us with your preferences of slots.
The available slots for the course are as follows:
- Monday 17:00 – 18:15
