Venues and Sessions

We are lucky to be able to use a range of different venues across the year with session timings differing between Summer and Winter.

We use our Club ground at Shurdington (directions) throughout the year for outdoor target, field and clout archery.

Our range at Shurdington
A compact well presented area accommodating 32 targets.

Our indoor venues include Balcarras and Kingshill Schools and at our own clubhouse/training centre.

One of our core principles is “to remain a club, not just a venue where people shoot” which means we DO NOT offer 24/7 shooting. All sessions are part of an organised programme which delivers constant coach support, enjoyment, variety and social interaction. We strive to ensure all visits are part of a great experience.

We have unparalleled success in supporting individuals from recreational to world class, we do accommodate additional needs for our international archers but still through programmed sessions.

Our managed programme and not 24/7 access may not be convenient for some, other clubs do offer that flexibility so please be aware of this fact when selecting the best club for you.
