About Us

We are a friendly archery club in Fakenham, Norfolk catering for all ages and abilities.  Like many archery clubs around the UK, we’ve shrunk in size since Covid began. This has drawn us together, everyone knows everyone else, and everyone has a say in what we do. We have members from Fakenham and its surrounding area all of various ability and bow styles.

We shoot outdoors at Fakenham Racecourse on the following days :

Sundays: 2-6pm
Thursdays: from 6pm in summer
Thursdays: from 2-3pm in winter

During the winter when the weather is bad, we also sometimes shoot indoors at Fakenham Racecourse Rifle Range on the following days :

Sundays: 3-6pm
Thursdays: 5pm onwards

We host a few major competitions each year, both target and clout shoots, some being record status shoots. Our Mayday Weekend and Clout Weekend are well known and received, with competitors from around the UK. Our annual indoor WA 18m competition and outdoor World Archery Weekend had to be suspended for the last couple of years, but are hoping to host the record status WA 18m again in 2023-24.
