DBC Leisure

Archery in the Forest of Dean.

Take your stance, draw your bow and release the arrow - the ancient sport of archery is a great activity for individuals and groups as you learn the skills you need to hit that target.


In our all-weather shelter our GNAS qualified instructors will teach you everything you need to know including:

  • Eye dominance check
  • Bow and range safety briefing
  • Demonstration and coaching of technique

You will be equipped with a modern re-curve bow and arrows suitable for your size and strength. With coaching throughout the session, you will soon discover how compelling this sport is and how competitive it can be!

Birthday parties, weddings or if your office or business is organizing a day out, why not consider archery? We can tailor a day to suit your needs, and can also include air rifles. It can be as competitive or relaxed as you like. Fully catered for full day events or a quick hour 'taster' session. What ever you need, we can help.

Our archery parties go down well with both children and grown ups wanting something different for that special day. We have child sized equipment and can cater for most ages depending on strength and stature.
