Limited Resumption of Indoor Shooting

[Updated 15th September 2020]

Bromyard Bowmen are pleased to announce that following a virtual meeting of the Management Committee it has been decided that with the recent easing of the rules by the government and Archery GB, the club is now able to offer a limited return to shooting under a set of clearly defined rules.

You can view these rules here. PLEASE READ THEM CAREFULLY. The club is unable to support any variation or deviation from them.

Shooting will need to be controlled in sessions that have to be booked in advance. There can be no turning up ad-hoc and expecting to shoot.

Details of how to book a session are outlined here. Please note the cut off time for making a booking. This is important to avoid any disappointment on the day.

We look forward to welcoming you back “on the line”.

 

Bromyard Bowmen Archery Club

Archery truly is a sport for all and with members ranging from 8 to 80, Bromyard Bowmen is pleased to offer men, women and children the opportunity to enjoy this traditional sport, including disabled archers who shoot on equal terms with the able-bodied.

We are affiliated to Archery GB and follow recognised procedures and disciplines. Any coaching required is carried out by qualified coaches.

Dreaming of Summer shooting

Club Facilities

We shoot at The Clive Richards Sports Ground on the Tenbury Road out of Bromyard. See below for a location map.

We are very lucky to be one of the few archery clubs in the country to have our own purpose-built shooting hall. This is where we shoot in the winter months (when the distances shot are shorter) or when the weather is poor. In the summer months (May to September) we shoot outside on the rugby pitch.

Club sessions take place on Tuesday and Thursday evenings 6.30 pm – 9 pm, and Sunday afternoons from 2.00 pm.

Location

The Clive Richards Sports Ground, Bromyard Sports Foundation, can be found on the Tenbury Road out of Bromyard.  Sharing the site with Bromyard Rugby Club and Bromyard Bowls Club, our Clubhouse sits slightly behind the Rugby Clubhouse.

Postcode HR7 4LW – if your SatNav tries to take you in to the nearby industrial estate or the Co-op, ignore it, continue onwards past the new housing estate and look out for the Rugby posts!

Archery and Bow Styles

The predominant form of archery practised is target archery where a set number of arrows are shot at targets over distances of up to 100 yards for men and 80 yards for women. Juniors have their own shorter distances, depending on age. More information on the type of rounds shot can be found here.

Most bow styles are catered for with members shooting Olympic-style Recurve, Compound, Longbow and Barebow. You can see more on this topic here

Only 7 months until these targets are due to be out again!
