Get Involved

There are a variety of ways to get into archery at Deer Park Archers whether you want to shoot socially, competitively or importantly be involved voluntarily to assist with many aspects of club operations.

Starting out

Our policy is to welcome ALL those interested in archery and wanting to complete a beginners course. It is not a problem if on completion of the course you intend to join another club who are not able to provide a course to suit your timescales or budget.

We also encourage those interested in being part of a vibrant club that do not want to shoot but simply enjoy the social side or want to volunteer! We are happy to train individuals to become part of our volunteer workforce or utilise skills they may already have. See details of our ‘men in sheds ‘ group we are starting up in the Autumn of 2018 and our Short Mat Bowls Club.

Join the club

If you decide that you would like to join Deer Park Archers you will need to fill out the membership form and provide this to the membership admin team before you commence shooting with the club.

Developing your skills

After you have joined the club coaches will usually be on hand to respond to your questions and offer help and advice on an adhoc basis.  If you would like to have a little more focused coaching the club offers additional coaching courses which can be used to help improve your shooting technique.

Want to know more about Coaching?


We encourage parents of our junior members to get involved even if they are not interested in shooting themselves.    This not only helps the club, but also allows parents to build an understanding of the sport their children have taken an interest in. Volunteering can take the form of helping setup and take down equipment at club practice, through to training as a coach or judging. Playing a role on the committee, helping with land or equipment maintenance, we all have skills so sharing yours with the club will help us to continue our development. Just to say volunteering can be on an ongoing basis or simply on an occasional basis, we all have other commitments and that is understood.
