Details of this and other Club Competitions and Awards can be found in the members section of this website.
On the first Sunday each month throughout the season we will be running a series of club competition shoots. This first competition this year is a Warwick round to ease everyone in gently and let everyone get home for Easter Sunday lunch!
A Warwick round is a short 4 dozen round, with 2 doz arrows being shot at each of two distances.
These friendly competitions are open to all members – regardless of experience. Don’t worry if you have never shot a formal round before – everything will be explained before we start. These are great fun events and we look forward to seeing as many members as possible join us.
Please arrive by 09:45 if possible as the formal start will be at 10:00 sharp.
Details of all this year’s Outdoor Series competitions are available in the Shooting Diary.

The Club is in the final stages of agreeing to a new design of Club polo shirt. The management committee has received lots of helpful feedback about the design and quality of the Club shirts.
As a result we are planning to offer a new high specification Club design polo shirt. This will be made to a unique Lintman design by Kudos sportswear the suppliers to the Archery GB squad.
Unlike previous Club shirts this will be a modern technical shirt with the design created by the latest dye sublimation printing. The price is expected to be approx. £30.
At the Club session on Sunday 14 March (09:30 -11:00) I will have a sample shirt and design ideas for any members to take a look before the final design is chosen.
Interested in entering a local archery tournament?
A number of local Archery GB affiliated clubs run ‘open’ tournaments each year where archers from all over the country compete together. These more formal competitions can be a lot of fun and there are a few popular ones where the Club have been represented in recent years.
To help members we have added a new page to the Member’s Section of the Club Website which provide more details about local tournaments and where to get more details. The page can be accessed via the Members menu or click Local Archery Tournaments.
Oliver Gibbs is our Club Tournament captain so please make yourself known to Oliver if you are interested in finding out more. He can be contacted by email at email@example.com
