Club Information

Archery is a historic sport; nearly every culture on earth has created their own bows and arrows over time.
This has led to a vast number of bow styles; you may be most familiar with English longbow and Olympic style recurve.
Not only are there many different bow styles, there are lots of forms of archery; target, field, clout and flight!
Archery is inclusive; you may have heard of archers with disabilities such as Matt Stutzman and Jodie Grinham.

Our club is growing in size and competitiveness; we still hang out at the pub and run the occasional social though!
Our aims for future development are to shoot outdoors more and compete more with other universities and clubs.


All sessions are held in Priory Hall.

Please be aware that Priory Hall is occasionally unavailable for sessions.
More information for this is available in the club calendar.
