About us

We welcome everyone and run beginners courses for those who are interested in having a go.

The club has been running since 1974 and has had amongst its members some very capable archers over the years, including at the moment, a current world record holder in flight archery, as well as current UK Ladies Champion and UK Record holder in Clout archery

Archery is a sport that can be enjoyed by people of all ages and all abilities, whether you just want an enjoyable pastime, or you intend to get a bit more competitive.
