Archery

Archery can take place indoors or outdoors so you can do it all year round. Plus it's incredibly sociable.

An Overview of Archery

It's a very low-impact sport which means anyone can take part whatever your fitness level.

Archery involves using a bow and arrow to hit a stationary target. Points are then scored based on the position the arrow lands on the target.

Have-a-go events and beginner's courses are regularly organised within clubs, youth groups, schools and holiday camps so even if you have never tried archery before, there are lots of ways to give it a go in a friendly environment.

The Archery GB Development Team is responsible for providing support to developing clubs, supporting schools better to deliver archery and introducing new young people to the sport, and improving the capacity of the sport through the development and support of coaches and volunteers.

Archery GB has a club development programme, ontarget. Through this programme, ontarget will provide clubs with three main benefits – Recognition, Rewards, Development. All Archery GB affiliated clubs are eligible to join at any time.
