Just a quick reminder for upcoming shooting dates. The gym is available for use tonight (Wed, 26th Feb) at our normal times, hope to see you there. We will be starting our Outdoor Sunday afternoon shooting from this Sunday, 1st March 2020. Times are 1.00pm to 5.00pm. Get yer thermals out!
The Academy has cancelled our bookings with immediate effect, until at least 24th April 2020. This means the club will not meet for the next 6 weeks, or until restrictions are lifted. I shall keep you informed as to when we can start our normal shooting. Stay safe and well - I look forward to seeing you all in the near future.
2020 Handicap Challenge…
It’s time to start the Indoor Handicap Challenge. This year it will be any Portsmouth Round shot during March. I shall be printing up the Challenge score sheets and will have them available for you to use – Only one entry per archer so you’ll have to pick which night you shoot.
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.
