What is Archery?

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.

Archery offers many opportunities across age ranges and abilities. It is a very social sport and provides the opportunity to join a club, shoot in a social setting and participate, should you want, in friendly club and inter-club competitions (indoor in winter, outdoor in summer).

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.
