Club News is back

Visit the Shooting Diary for the latest details of Club activities.

Following the Coronavirus pandemic restrictions the Club is now fully open again. Regular member activities are back.

In January 2022 we will be running our next Beginner Course indoors at the Lord Roberts Centre, Bisley. Booking will open at the end of November.

We will update this website as more event details for 2022 become available.

Range Booking System Launched

With Step 2 of the COVID-19 of the Roadmap out of Lockdown now live the Management Committee have been looking at how we can safely bring more flexibility to shooting at the Lintman outdoor range, whilst following the Archery GB guidelines for the Return to Archery.
From the 1st May 2021 we are moving to online booking of archery sessions for all members. This will replace the current fixed session allocations.

More details have been forwarded via email to all members.

The booking system can be accessed via the link on the Members Homepage.

Lintman Range Reopens

The Lintman Archery Club range reopens for members in line with Step One of the Government’s ‘Roadmap Out of Lockdown’.

Step One allows for the restarting of organised outdoor sport, including Archery from Monday 29th March 2021.

Whilst this is not a full return to Club Archery at this stage (we hope this will follow in ‘Step 4’ in June). Social distancing and other restrictions still apply. Full details have been emailed to members.

We are planning to run Beginner Courses later this year. Please register via our Beginner Course page if you are interested in taking up Archery in 2021 .

Return to Archery – Phase 2 – Restricted Shooting

The Club has introduced restricted shooting for members who have requested it. All shooting is in individual time allocated sessions and any member who would does not currently have sessions but would like them should email the Club Secretary.

We are currently reviewing whether or not we will be able to offer indoor archery this winter in line with these Phase two guidelines.

Regrettably the Club remains closed to all other members.

Following the current Archery GB guidelines and UK Government Social Distancing policies we remain unable to run our usual format of Beginners Courses safely, so our planned September 2020 course has also been cancelled.

We hope to be running courses again in Spring 2021.

If you have any queries about the Return to Shooting please get in touch via email.

Return to Archery – Phase 1 – Restricted Shooting

The Club has introduced restricted shooting for members who have requested it. All shooting is in individual time allocated sessions and all members who requested to shoot have received details via email.

The Club remains closed to all other members.

With the current Government restrictions over the COVID19 pandemic we regret we are not able to run our usual programme of Beginners Courses this year. More details will be made available as soon as all lockdown restrictions have been lifted and new guidelines published by Archery GB and the UK Government.

If you have any queries about the Return to Shooting please get in touch via email.

Archery GB announce the postponement of all Grassroots Archery in the UK

Archery GB, our National Governing Body are advising that all archery in the UK is postponed for the foreseeable future, to reduce all non-essential contact with others. Our priority is the health and safety of our members, participants, volunteers and staff. 

You can read their full statement here:

At Lintman we are following this guidance and therefore all Club archery activity, including our Sunday and Tuesday Club sessions and all coaching is suspended. Our beginner course in April has been cancelled.

We will continue to support the actions of Archery GB and the UK Government in their efforts to contain the Covid 19 Pandemic and will continue to follow their guidance.

The Management Committee will continue to monitor the evolving situation.

We look forward to welcoming back members as soon as the current advice changes.

Shooting Diary for 2020 published

Autumn Target

Today we have updated the website with details of our proposed events for 2020.

We will again be running a 2020 Outdoor Series of Club Competitions. These relaxed competitions are open for all Club members. Also included are the monthly Frostbite matches and the popular William Tell and Lucky Dip target fun shoots.

For the first time in 2020 we are looking at the feasibility of running a Clout shoot on our field on Sunday 21st June – so save the date for this one.

We are always open to new ideas and events – so do let any of the Management Committee know if there are events or competitions you would like to see added to the programme…

Thank You.

We are extermely grateful to Janis and Robin Bayley for their kind donations of two bows and associated archery equipment. The kit will be put to good use as loan progression equipment for our beginners as they come off their intial training and gain more experience.
