Crowthorne Archers

CROWTHORNE ARCHERS

Crowthorne Archers is primarily a target archery club, and the majority of our members shoot the recurve bow, but of course we'd welcome almost all other forms of bow (e.g., longbow, etc.) to the club.

We invite people of all ages to try archery and enjoy the sport with us. Archery is particularly suited to whole family participation, and we provide properly qualified and insured instruction together with all of the equipment necessary to start and learn. The basics of the sport are easy to learn, with no significant physical requirements, and only require a responsible attitude. Please visit Becoming an Archer on our website to see more about what we can offer.

 

Many of our Archers shoot purely for recreation, but others have worked hard at their shooting and have been very successful in competitions. Some of our members have represented Berkshire County in the adult recurve, adult longbow and junior teams. Our junior members have been particularly successful, many having held British records. One represented Great Britain in 2004 and another in 1996.

 

During the summer months we shoot outdoors at St Sebastian’s Playing Field Trust Sports Club on Tuesday and Thursday evenings, and then again on Sunday mornings, and also on any Bank Holiday Monday. During the winter we shoot on a Wednesday evening and a Saturday afternoon at Sandhurst Sports Centre, and then again outdoors at St Sebastian’s Playing Field Sports Club on a Sunday morning (weather permitting!).

We have an active and successful Coaching and Development programme, running several courses throughout the year, both indoors and outdoors. Please review the Coaching and Development section of our website.

There is a lot more information about who we are, what we do, and how you can become a part of this wonderful club and sport on our website, so do please visit:
