Social and Recreation

Since 2020/2021, COVID when many of our social activities were suspended, time has seen us return to a whole range of new social events that makes our club so much more than just an archery venue.

In 2023 we had numerous events including :

A Junior Only Fish & Chip social.

Our annual lasertag tournament

Our first petanque championships

Adventure Golf

Halloween Shoot

Our annual awards evening

December – Junior Christmas Party

The core of our social programme remains our practice sessions, club target days, workshops, committee meetings, something on every day, so plenty of regular contact! Various Facebook groups, informal social outings, fundraising events and a willingness to share each others successes mean we spend a lot of time together.

However some highlights of more formally arranged activities.

Group trips to tournaments, including Ontarget, Nimes & Las Vegas.

We had a great time at our  lazer tag evenings.

We have held successful Racing evenings at the Hucclecote Centre, lots of laughs, great for fundraising too!

We held a number of social fun shoots, a couple of members special parties and an official opening event for the new clubhouse and social terracing.

Excellent support for our opening.

We support each other when we have been nominated for awards ensuring there is always Deer Park Archers representation.

It’s interesting that when formal social events are listed they do not seem that many and yet the sheer enjoyment and friendship at our practice sessions makes everything feel so regular!

All the 2024 Social events will appear on our online Event Booking system. As of February 2024 we have just held a ‘board games’ evening and are currently booking for our Annual Laser Tag Evening!
