Shooting Ranges

The Shooting Range will be open from Thursday 10th September - pre booking of lanes will be required.

To give us more space behind the line we will initially at least restrict shooting to 15 yards. Social distancing means it will be 1 archer per boss maximum of 4 archers shooting.

It will be different and range time will have to be booked in advance by calling us.

1) Pay and shoot - prior booking required by phone sessions paid on the day before shooting.

2) 1 hour shooting slots - this includes the time to set up and or take down your equipment. So we suggest setting you bow up outside. If you will require longer than 1 hour than additional slots need to be booked.

3) Range will be open from 10.30 to 4.30 Weekdays and 10.30 to 3.30 on Saturdays. Start times will be staggered to ease congestion.

4) Cost £7.00 per hour this will include an indoor target face. Target faces to be taken home.

4a) There will be no option to hire our equipment, archers will use their own equipment.

5) Only the archer shooting will be allowed in the range. (provision for supervision of minors will be allowed by one other parent or guardian).

6) As a guide Archers are to follow standar

rs will use their own equipment.d AGB rules of shooting/safety and only 3 arrows per end.

7) Social distancing and the room available means that you walk straight to your boss when collecting your arrows.

8) Face masks/coverings are not required when shooting but at all other times and especially in the shop.

9) Our range is also used for trying and fitting out archers and our own coaching sessions so some slots may not be available.

10) The use of the Shooting Range is at the discretion of Perris Archery staff.


All repairs, even minor ones may require you to leave your item with us.

Our custom made strings and cables

We will start making custom strings and cables again (From July), but this does require a considerable amount of hand contact and it is not possible to sanitise the items so again please be aware before using. The turnaround for compound strings and cables will be around 14 days from the time of dropping off your bow to us. Recurve strings should be ordered online or over the phone and either posted out or collected.

Tea and coffee

All tea and coffee making facilities are suspended.


The farms’ toilet facilities are open - used at your discretion
