General Archery and Axe Throwing Questions
How qualified are your coaches?
All our archery coaches are fully licensed Archery GB coaches (not archery leaders or instructors) with enhanced CRB clearance and child protection course certification. As well as coaching archery our coaches shoot regularly recreationally as well as competitively.
Our Axe Throwing instructors are KATTA (UK Knife, Axe & Tomahawk Throwing Association) trained.
Our lead coach is involved at a national level in developing innovative and creative ways to deliver archery and is collaborating on academic research regarding North African archery.
Are you fully insured?
Yes, all our coaches have full archery and Axe Throwing specific insurance.
What age do you need to be?
The minimum age for target archery is 6 years old, and minimum age to take part in Axe Throwing is 10 years old. Anyone taking part under 18 must be accompanied by an adult at all times.
Please remember that both archery and axe throwing are physical activites and will require a degree of mobility and strength. Participants with back, shoulder or neck injuries may be excluded from taking part. If you have a injury or disability which you think may affect your training, please inform your instructor.
Events and Corporate Activities Questions
What happens if it rains?
As it is not possible to book the sunshine along with your archery events, Grey Goose Archery always has a wet weather contingency in place.
For our outdoor events, we will provide gazebos where guests can shelter in the event of a heavy downpour.
For events taking place at our venue we have a 15 metre under cover shooting area.
How much space is needed to run an archery or Axe throwing event at our venue?
We find that a space of 70m x 20m is the most suitable as this gives us the most flexibility for our archery and axe throwing activities. However we can work in most spaces, however small, if required. If you have any questions please get in touch.
Can you run an archery event indoors?
We have run archery events in sports halls, village halls and even barns. Please contact us to discuss the suitability of your venue.
What are event payment options?
There are two pricing options available:
Pre-Paid in Full by the Event Organiser
Village fetes and country fairs where footfall is under 5,000 we charge a fee to the event organiser. We could then charge the customer on behalf of the event organiser to subsidise the fee paid by the organiser.
With large events, festivals and shows we will not charge a fee for attending. We will charge the customer direct then pay a commission to the event organiser
Event footfall, cost and position of stand and travelling costs are all taken into consideration in our pricing, which is why we ask you to contact us for a more accurate idea of price. We will always ask for a deposit from the event organiser regardless of the pricing / payment option you choose.
