Description

Archery has a deep rooted history in Britain, ever since 1066 when Duke William defeated King Harold at Hastings and the longbow was developed into a weapon of war. Though the introduction of firearms in the 15th century made the bow redundant as a weapon of war, it did not diminish a national following for archery as a recreational sport.

 UCLan Archery was established in 2014, in the the past five years we have managed to become one of the strongest teams in the north. We compete in British Universities & Colleges Sport (BUCS), NEAUL and external competitions across the country. We are also members of Archery GB, Lancashire Archery Association (LAA), Northern County Archery Society.

 

Archery is fully inclusive for all, Just let us know what you require and we will sort it :)

 

We also have an Alumni team for Staff and Ex students, It's never too late to join!!!

 

We have five practice sessions a week:

 

Monday 6:30pm - 9:30pm

Tuesday 7.00pm - 9.30pm

Thursday 8:00pm – 9:30pm

Sometimes Saturday 2:00pm - 4:30pm

We meet outside the Students' Union/essentials half an hour before practice to the shuttle bus/lift over to the arena.

 

Club kit is available for use, however if you have it you can bring your own. Shirts for competition are also available to buy from the Activities Centre on the ground floor of the SU ( cost is £25, cash only). We also have social events happening throughout the year (both alcohol and non-alcohol related), these events are discussed by members so any suggestions are welcome.

 

Do you fancy yourself as a modern day Robin Hood or Merida? Do you want to learn to shoot as well as Katniss? Then why don’t you come along to one of our sessions, We are always open to new archers. You can also contact us on our Facebook group, Twitter and Instagram.
