Have-a-Go Day Sunday 21 July

Between 2pm to 3:30pm

Come along and try an archery taster session under the guidance of our coaching team.

*** No booking, just turn up during the times above. ***

We are a small friendly Archery Club based on the King George V playing fields in Plumpton Green, East Sussex.

We welcome archers at all levels of achievement and embrace all the styles – Compound, Recurve and Long Bow.

The club boasts 5 qualified coaches to assist your development in the sport.

We are very fortunate to have a beautiful venue, The King George V Playing Fields, as our base and our facilities are suitable for archers with disabilities.

We are keen to encourage newcomers to the sport and we run two beginner courses every year, one in the Spring and one in the Autumn, in addition to our popular Have-a-Go days during the summer.

More information on our beginners page.

Our membership covers the full age range and we are proud to have several family groups in the Club. We take our archery seriously but also believe it should be enjoyable.

We have a full programme during the Summer season including an instinctive shoot (based on field archery), a fun shoot, a handicap shoot and the Club championship.

We are members of the Sussex Albion League, a friendly competition between Sussex clubs.

During the Winter season we are members of the Frostbite and Portsmouth Leagues.
