Committee & Coaches

The Archery Committee and all of the club members are happy to help, answer questions, or have a chat about archery if you're thinking of joining. Talk to the committee or coaches during practice sessions, drop by our Facebook or Twitter to get in contact, or email us.

Basics of Archery

Maybe you've seen Lord of the Rings or the Hunger Games, but you're not sure what modern target archery looks like. This will get you started.

Archery Resources

Need some tips, or want to learn more about how to improve? Here are some archery resources to get you going.


Non-students are also welcome! Having completed your beginners' course (this is the same for everyone), you need to purchase a union group associate membership before buying the archery membership - both of these are available here of the Students' Union website. Unfortunately, you will not be able to participate in BUCS (British Universities and Colleges Sports) Championships or SEAL (Southeast Archery League) but we have several other competiions throughout the year which you are more than welcome to attend. We have a diverse mix of ages and abilities, so everyone is welcome. As a club member, you are also welcome to any and all club socials!

More about the club

Archery is one of the most versatile and adaptable sports going as well as being fun! The Club has been shooting for over 15 years.

We are affiliated to the National Governing Body, ArhceryGB, ensuring that all the teaching and shooting is safe, fun, and insured. We are open to everyone interested in archery, from complete beginners to experienced archers. For the novices, we can train you how to shoot accurately, and we also provide all the equipment that you will need. Experienced archers are also welcome to join and shoot with us and benefit from the other experienced archers and coaches.

The club encourages archers of all levels to travel to and compete in competitions with other universities. We currently compete in the South East Archery League (SEAL) and the British Universities and Colleges Sport (BUCS) Championships. You're welcome to shoot with us regardless of whether you want to compete or not.

We also have frequent socials such as pub visits, laser quest, a Christmas meal and our annual summer barbecue. All are welcome!
