We are a friendly club with over 100 members ranging from 8 years old to senior citizens. Both able bodied and those with disabilities are welcome and help is always on hand from our qualified coaches.

Our members predominantly shoot Recurve and Compound bows, but other bows, which are used as a second choice, include the Longbow and the Mongolian Bow.
