For New Archers!

Why not come along to one of our Have-A-Go days and try archery for free? See below.

We’re also running induction courses, there is one underway at the moment and we may run another later in the year.

Have-A-Go Days!

We’ve just run one on Saturday 6th & Sunday 7th April 2:00pm – 5:00pm both days. The next ones are on Thurs 22nd August and Monday 26th August 2024.

Your chance to come along and have a go at archery, under the watchful eye of our club coaches, experienced archers, and those who had so much fun on their have-a-go last year that they joined the club! No booking, just turn up and have a go.

Held at Fakenham Racecourse – Free parking – All welcome!

Club Target Days

We’ve re-introduced Club Target Days to encourage ArcheryGB Classifications and the associated bling that goes with them, and for those who want to try shooting some different rounds. (For Bowman classifications the shoot needs to be a formal event, hence the target days, while for Archer classifications a normal club practice day is fine).  Click here for more details about Target Days.

We have set start times, but finish when everyone has had their fill, or it gets too dark.

Note that on some Sundays we shoot clout rather than targets, see the Shooting Calendar.

Thursdays in summer: 2pm till ~8pm. In winter 2pm-dusk.

Tuesday mornings: 9:30am – 11:30am, weather dependent.

If the weather’s very bad, contact one of the Field Captains just to check shooting is still on. There will be a list with mobile numbers on the members pages shortly and a link here.

Shooting Times Indoors

Sundays 2pm – 4pm.

The indoor season has now ended but we’re expecting to do this again in 2024-25. Check the Club Calendar for the start and end dates for the indoor season.

The hall is expensive to book so we ask everyone for a modest £5 shooting fee to cover part of the cost.
