Club Shoots

On Sunday mornings, club members are welcome to attend regular club shoots. These provide a chance for members to get to know one another, ask questions and share their love of the sport. There are a range of rounds that are scheduled each week, and there can always be modified rounds shot for members new to the sport. A list of rounds scheduled can be found inside the clubhouse. Registration is online through Archers Diary 

Members can shoot the weekly scheduled round at any time on that day, and the following week, but at least two members must be participating in the scoring. Blank scoresheets are stored behind the clubhouse door.

 

Please find a guide on how to register and participate in the club shoot here.
