Plymouth Archers was formed over 10 years ago by a few members from other clubs and started shooting in a local school. Many letters were sent asking for help and encouragement and these requests were supported by local and national companies, enabling the Club to buy the required equipment.
Following a couple of moves due to limitations of the facilities, we moved in 2012 to our present home of Torbridge Sports Centre at Torbridge High School, at Estover where we enjoy first class indoor facilities and helpful and supportive Centre Staff. The outdoor facilities are currently under construction and should be operational by Spring 2015.
Following a short period of closure the club has moved from strength to strength, enjoying good support from the members in acquiring new students for our highly popular courses, and for their continued attendance on club nights A growing number of Junior members help to swell our ranks including a very active Junior member representative on our Committee.
We shoot in accordance with the Archery GB" Rules of Shooting" and our courses are run under the direction of Qualified Coaches. In addition to Target Archery we enjoy several fun shoots throughout the year, themed for different dates. i.e Xmas, Halloween etc. An increasingly popular guest at these shoots is "Bunny" , but you will have to attend one of these shoots to meet him in person.
If you are interested in taking up this fascinating and challenging sport please visit our Courses page to request the necessary information.
The Club can only accept archers of 10 years old and above, however we have no upper age limit!
