Archery

 

WELCOME TO THE UWE ARCHERY PAGE!

The club welcomes archers of all abilities, whether you’re a beginner and have never touched a bow or an experienced archer, we will be able to help you develop your skills during our sessions! Beginners will need a short introduction to the sport to ensure they shoot safely, but once you have been inducted you are welcome to come to any of our practice hours.

Archery is a great sport for boosting your mental and physical health and fitness. If you're looking to improve your upper body strength, flexibility and dexterity as well as your focus, concentration and attention then this is the sport for you! It's also the perfect opportunity to connect with other people from a variety of backgrounds.

Whilst most members take up archery as a recreational sport, we encourage archers to try out for our BUCS team (British University and Colleges Sport) and compete in regional/national competitions.

Outside of practice we also organise regular social events and themed sessions and often spend time together after shooting, so you are not only gaining a lifelong skill but a group of friends as well!

By purchasing a membership, you are entitled to attend all our archery sessions until the end of the 2020 - 2021 academic year. You are also entitled to attend our events and socials both during and outside of our regular sessions.

Part of your membership fee will also go towards a membership with Archery GB. Anyone practicing archery in the UK is required to be a member of archery GB for insurance purposes. The benefits of being a part of Archery GB include being able to shoot at any other archery club in the country as well as discounts provided on the Archery GB website.
