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 on Wednesday evenings.

We have a healthy membership 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 then we run a beginners courses starting in April each year. The course fills up very quickly so get in touch if you would like to attend.
