We are back!

I am so pleased to say we are finally back up and running here at Southside Archery! We have a new outdoor venue in Cathcart which is not far from where we were previously and actually probably easier to get to particularly by public transport. We are keen to welcome back all of our existing members as soon as you feel ready to come back but there have been some minor changes to how we do things due to covid 19, the only major change is advanced booking which can be done via this website.

Bookings are refundable if you cannot attend as long as you cancel more than 24 hours in advance to give us a chance at least to fill your spot as although we are in level 0 now there are still restrictions on the numbers we are allowed at present.

The biggest piece of news is that beginners courses will be up and running again from August! There have been loads of enquiries about beginners courses and I have contacted as many people as I can this evening to ask if they are still looking for a course, if you had previously emailed us and not had an email from me this evening please get back in touch with me as there is a chance I have lost your details, particularly if it has been a long time since you contacted us due to GDPR.

At the moment we are still only taking adults as we remain only insured for over 18’s however this is something we are going to look into once we get through our current waiting list as we do get quite a few enquiries from teenagers wanting to come along.

The cost of the beginners course has gone up slightly to £30 however this includes the cost of your own arm guard, finger tab and quiver as due to the current guidelines each archer must have their own. Should these guidelines change at any point we will revisit this but unfortunately this is what the current rules say we must do. The course continues to be a condensed 3 week course and will be on Friday evenings.

If you would like to put your name down for a course please get in touch by either filling in this form, emailing us on secretary@southsidearchery.com or via Facebook at www.facebook/com/southsidearcheryclub
