Welcome To Deer Park Archers

A message from our COVID Officers (Oct 2021) – In line with members wishes we will continue with online lane booking, increased boss spacing, wearing of masks both in the covered shooting area and the clubhouse. If family members or close work colleagues etc test positive or are waiting for results we ask you either not to attend practice sessions or speak to the Club Secretary so isolated bosses can be arranged.
