We are a very friendly club and always welcome new members. We shoot most disciplines of archery, including longbow, recurve, and compound bows.

Shooting all distances up to 100 yards, our outdoor range is on the sports field in the beautiful setting of Wootton Courtenay.

We also have an indoor range for the winter at Butlins in Minehead (SUSPENDED DUE TO COVID UNTIL FURTHER NOTICE)

We run a number of beginners courses throughout the year; to find more information on this or any other subject please go to the enquiries page.
