Established in 1985, we are primarily a Target Archery Club within the New Forest National Park, our shooting ground is on the outskirts of Sway where we are fortunate to have unlimited access to our range which the Club now owns. During the winter months we also shoot indoors at Brockenhurst College.

We have a membership of around 100, with ages ranging from juniors up to 80+. We have archers of all abilities from beginners up to archers of international standard. If you are interested in joining the club but have no previous experience of archery you will need to complete a beginners course (see the red block on the right). Courses start in April each year. The courses fill up very quickly so get in touch if you would like to attend.

Established archers with current AGB membership/insurance are welcome to shoot with us. This costs £5 per session for a maximum of three sessions. Access to the ground requires the attendance of a Sway member so contact us via this website to make arrangements.

Diversity Statement

Sway Bowmen value the individual differences that make you who you are.

We believe all persons, of all characteristics, whether protected or otherwise, should be encouraged and supported to enjoy the sport of archery.

Allocated parking, ramped building access and bathroom facilities spacious enough to allow wheelchair access are all available on site.
