An Archery GB registered club of members managed by a dedicated committee volunteers bound by constitution for the purpose of celebrating, enjoying and sharing a passion for all things bow and arrow related!

We were founded in 2018 with a small group of archers who wanted a place to shoot arrows develop our knowledge and skills and to make friends. The club gratefully uses the lovely facilities of Windmill Leisure giving us access to their warm clubhouse as well as two separate archery ranges: a covered, floodlit 20 yard range as well as a large full distance 100 yard/90 meter target archery range with space for up to a dozen targets! We are looking at the possibility of hosting Clout and field archery in future as well so watch this space!

All shooting members are affiliated with Archery GB [formerly known as the Grand National Archery Society], Gloucestershire Archery Society, and Grand Western Archery Society as well as World Archery which allows us to shoot and compete [should we wish] at any similarly affiliated club and range.
