Our taster sessions are a great way to try this increasingly popular sport. All equipment is provided and your instructor will cover all the shooting and safety information you need to know. The session will be based in one of our purpose built indoor ranges, which offer the perfect environment for novices to experience the sport for the first time.

Our experienced instructors will teach you the skills required for you to safely abseil from our 11m (36’) high, purpose built abseil platform. All specialist equipment provided.
Climbing
Our taster sessions for those who wish to have a go to see what the sport is all about. You will get a chance to scale our roped walls, belay - hold the ropes for other course members and have a try on our bouldering wall - a short wall with mats underneath, climbed without ropes. All under the expert tuition of one of our experienced instructors. All specialist equipment provided.
