Archery Club | Home
Do you want to love sport but are just too lazy? Do you think you could be the next Robin Hood? Archery could be the sport for you! Whether you have been pinging arrows for years or just want to give it a go, you will fit right in at the club!
Archery is a sport that can be carried out by someone of any physical ability, and we strive to be as inclusive as possible.
Please go to our facebook page for updates on socials, session times and competitions.
Our session days are Mondays and Tuesday evenings this term.
Can I Join?
We are now only accepting experienced members as we have far fewer sessions this term than expected, and don't have the availability to coach new members. We will be able to accept more beginners in the next academic year, sorry for any disappointment this may cause. Please refrain from buying the beginners membership, purchases of this membership made this term will be refunded.
We can facilitate all bow disciplines including recurve, compound, longbow, barebow and traditional (horsebow). We do not accept crossbow (unfortunately).
We don’t just ping arrows, the archery club lovingly arranges a variety of socials, from going to the pub after sessions to moderately wild nights out (not that wild). Don’t worry, there’s other stuff too- mini golf, bowling, archery tag, 3D archery and much more!
For those archers that want to push themselves, there are a variety of competitions available to compete in. Not only are they a great way to represent the university (and look great on your CV), they are also really good fun. Tournaments are open to all skill levels, having beginner categories for people who have never shot before, giving beginners the opportunity to place and win medals. When it comes to bigger tournaments, we compete in both BUCS indoors and outdoors, which gives a real chance for an archer to push themselves as they are against every archer in the country. Finally, the most enjoyable of all competitions- Varsity. A once yearly opportunity to terrorise Swansea. They might be a bigger club on paper, but it is a great opportunity for making friends and showing off our skills as archers in a friendly yet competitive atmosphere.
We hope this is the club for you, and cannot wait to meet our new members!
Membership and Refund Policy
Membership is only available at the start of each semester. If you are an experienced archer, please message our facebook to enquire about joining at any point throughout the year.
Refunds: Our policy for new archers is that if you have completed over two beginners course sessions we will no longer be able to give a membership refund. For experienced archers we offer a full refund if you haven't been to sessions and if you have been to a few sessions we can offer a partial refund. If you do need a refund please contact our treasurer and they will organise one.
