Archery Club

Do I have to have experience?

Absolutely not! Anybody can join from novice to professional. We provide a beginner's course for those who have never picked up a bow before.


Do you do competitons?

We compete in varsity, BUCS, SWWU, and a number of friendly interuniversity competitions. As a member, you are under no obligation to attend any compeitions during your time with us (although they are very fun)


What kind of bows can I shoot?

We current support barebow, recurve, compound and traditional (horsebow). During our beginner's course we are only able to teach barebow and recurve due to the lack of compound bows available to us.


When and where are your sessions? 

We are based in the Great Hall of the SU. Our sessions are on Monday (6pm-9pm) and Wednesday (5pm-8pm).


What if I don't own a bow?

As a beginner, you are welcome to use our club bows for a year after your beginners course. However, we cannot guarantee this in your second year with us. We do frequently go on shop trips to Wales Archery so there's plenty of opportunities to get your own shiny new bow!


Where can I buy club kit?

We now have an online shop with Joma on Total Teamwear here:

If you order before 17th November and select 'shop delivry' at checkout, it will be brought to our session on 11th December so you can have it in time for Christmas :)



can I pay by card?
