We love archery and we are very proud of the services we offer. However, we don't expect you to just take our word for it - below, some of our recent participants tell you all about their experiences at an Archery for Everyone session
We were lucky enough to get to know Davey when he led activities for our brownies and guides. He is such a patient and friendly instructor, but the best thing about him is his humour. He has both kids and adults in fits of laughter during his sessions. Waringstown Guides adore 'Daisy' (the nickname given to him after our girls misheard his name - let's say it's now stuck). We look forward to seeing you in the future.

Was a great day for everyone. Very happy with the service provided. The kids learnt lots of new things & we will definitely be doing it again. Thank you very much Davey. Highly recommended.
I have worked with Davey for a few years and I would 100% recommend him. He is an absolute balloon with a great sense of humour, however, with Davey, safety is paramount. He is great at getting the best out of people no matter what their age or ability. I can guarantee it would be a great experience.
I just had my son's birthday party with David and Archery for Everyone. The group had a great time and David immediately put everyone at ease. I will be using David again for more parties in the future! A super fun afternoon which was a bit different from the normal party...... the kids loved it!
If you are wanting to try something a little different, why not give archery a go? I have worked with Davey over the years and have also had the pleasure of being taught archery by him too! It really is for everyone, whether it's school treats days, youth groups, hen/stags, team building or even just to get outdoors and have a bit of craic with friends/family. I can't recommend it enough!
Big thanks to Archery for Everyone for an amazing birthday party on Saturday for Jamie's 10th Birthday. Everyone had an absolute ball (even the big kids). What was supposed to be just the 4 boys doing this ended up with everyone having a go, it was brilliant! Davey was fantastic at explaining everything and was so patient at teaching the kids what to do. We all absolutely loved it, thank you so much. Highly recommend. Also awarding Jamie with the personalised engraved trophy was such a lovely gift. He is over the moon with it - so thoughtful.

David was extremely professional throughout the process of booking and during the session. He was quick to respond to emails and was accommodating when organising the sessions for our pupils. It was very reassuring that David was able to come and do an onsite risk assessment. This gave us the opportunity to discuss the session in more depth, explain the needs of our pupils and also ensured that we had a safe and suitable environment for the sessions to take place in. Nothing was too much trouble for David who made the whole booking process simple and smooth.
David was able to tailor the sessions for our pupils and as a result we had 100% participation. As many of our pupils can be very anxious about trying new things this was a fantastic result. David was able to communicate the aims of the session on a level the pupils could engage with. He and Jen did a wonderful job of boosting their confidence and ensuring success for all of the pupils.
The coaching was excellent, the pupils really understood what they needed to do, how to get better and as a result gained a real sense of achievement from their session. David and Jen were also able to adapt the session while it was running, further catering for the individual needs of our pupils.
I would not hesitate in recommending Archery for Everyone. David and Jen were superb with our pupils and engaged each and every one of them. The staff also commented how well the session worked and how much our pupils got out of them.
From all the pupils and staff at Clarawood School & Service, Thank You!

Davey is genuinely so good with everyone he works with. The kit he brings with him is excellent. Our boys were 6 & 3 and it was adapted to their needs. Everyone felt like a winner at the end.
Feedback from the young people @ Riverside Special School in Antrim:
Instructors were fun, good craic, new experience, learnt new skills, would defo do it again.
Thank you for taking the time to address each of our pupils and teach them archery. It has helped in developing their confidence and reinforcing the importance of rules and safety measures. We were also delighted with our medals and certificates. Thank you!

We all had a terrific time with Archery today in Glenveagh School. The instructors were very accommodating and the pupils enjoyed using the bow and arrows. The two different types of targets to practice with made the day fun for all abilities. It was a totally different activity for us all, it really brought out different things in our pupils. Some loved the sport and some just wanted to play Robin Hood, but either way I'm sure we have new generation of archers after today’s activities!

Feedback from some of the Glenveagh School pupils
David came to our GB. The girls had great fun. We had lots of laughs, great banter and with David's instruction the shots were hitting the targets by the end of the night.

We hired Archery for everyone for a Special needs summer scheme and David and his team was amazing. They took the time to make sure each individual had a go and tried their best. The kids absolutely loved it and were delighted with their medals and certificates afterwards. Would highly recommend Archery for everyone for a summer scheme or am activity for a birthday party. Thanks again David and team, we will definitely be getting you back to our school next year.
