Upcoming Events


September 24th First indoor shoot at Sheffield Hallam University Sports Park

September 15th Update

The committee reached a number of decisions on this date that will affect shooting in the coming months.

Indoor shooting.

Indoor shooting will return starting as of Tuesday 21st of September at Thrybergh Sports Centre and Friday 24th of September Sheffield Hallam University Sports Park. Shooting fees for the indoor venues will be £3 for members and £5 for visiting archers.

While currently our venues do not require face coverings our members should feel free to take whatever precautions that they feel are appropriate to their own current situation. We ask our archers to treat each other with respect about this.


While we had hoped to have the beginners lessons running again soon we are sorry to say that circumstances beyond our control we mean are unable to offer lessons at this time. We will update this message as circumstances change.

Event Update September

A number of the shoots we had scheduled for 2021 have been cancelled currently this include the Crècy Shoot in September the Great Western in October and the BLBS indoor in November. Other events are still under review the final decision is being left to the shoot organiser. If more are cancelled we will update the website for now all other shoots remain as scheduled.

Entry forms are now available for the D&DAA indoor shoot in November are now available on our Events page.

Arrow Policy

A reminder to all club members that arrows must have your name on them, if they don't you cannot shoot outdoors!

If you lose an arrow, then you must inform other club members on the night who will all attempt to find it. If by the end of the session it cannot be found it must be recorded by filling out the lost arrow record in the container on the notice board so we can continue to search for it until it is found.

Also, although everyone is aware, as a club we do not allow full carbon arrows to be shot.

You can download a copy of this policy here.
