We are a family-friendly club based in Gloucestershire at the Gloucester Academy, catering for people of all abilities from complete novices to experienced archers. We also run Beginners Courses throughout the year where you can learn how to safely shoot and receive expert advice from qualified trainers.
There is a lively mix of archers in the club shooting Recurve bow, Barebow, Longbow and Compound bow.
Many of our members enjoy archery as a relaxing and fun way to unwind from everyday stress, others have a more competitive nature and are encouraged to take part in tournaments held by local clubs - quite a few of the members have represented the county in regional competitions.
