St Neots Bowmen are pleased to announce we’re holding Beginner’s Courses across the Summer. Our next course will be held on Saturday 15th May.
Our one-day courses will run between 09:30 – 17:30 at our COVID safe outdoor range in Offord D’Arcy. See here for the location of the field.
Couples, families (children 8 years and up) and small groups are welcome. Although due to COVID we ask that only those wishing to take part in the course attend, as spectators aren’t currently permitted on the field.
For Summer 2021, we are offering a discounted rate of £50 per person. Upon completion of the course, you’ll gain a certificate enabling you to join St Neots Bowmen or any other AGB registered club.
Following a lengthy break due to enhanced COVID-19 restrictions, we’re pleased to announce the reopening of our outdoor range in Offord D’Arcy. For more information on getting back into Archery, click here.
Take care, stay safe & enjoy shooting!

Archery GB are running their annual January Challenge again. See link below for details. This is an informal postal competition in which anyone can submit their best Portsmouth score shot in January. Please note you don’t need to submit your own scores, I can upload everybody’s best Portsmouth score(s) en masse at the end of January so you don’t have to do anything but turn up and shoot a great Portsmouth! If you are fairly new to archery then there is a separate beginners section for those who have been shooting for less than one year. Also if you have been shooting for 25 years or more there is a “senior” group which is usually sparse, so let me know if you were chucking arrows in 1995!
Note : if for any reason you don’t want your scores submitted then let me know by the end of January.
As well as our usual indoor shoots we will be having an extra shoot outdoors on the 1st January to shake off the holiday excess and start the New Year afresh.
The round is a nice easy St. Nicholas: 4 dozen at 40 yards followed by 3 dozen at 30 yards (6 arrows per end.) Yes, it is a full size outdoor target face which will seem huge after those tiny indoor circles.
Arrive at 10am for a 10:30 start [note a tad later than normal, in case some of you have over-celebrated.]
The Wednesday evening indoor shoot will still take place as normal.
And don’t forget we will be outdoors again on Sunday 5th for the next Frostbite! [9:30 for 10am start.]
It is the indoor season again, and once more we will be running the Grand Prix competition. To “enter” all you have to do is shoot a Portsmouth, WA25, Worcester and Vegas round at least once each this season. The highest score you achieve in each of the four rounds is added together to give you a grand total.
The competition is divided into categories based on bow type, gender and age group. If you shoot more than one bow type then you will be in more than one category, so more chance to get on the medal list. The top three total scores in each category win gold, silver and bronze Grand Prix medals.
If you are uncertain of what the four rounds are then ask at a club shoot or read “An explanation of indoor shoots” found on this website’s “member info” page. And don’t be afraid of those little targets! They make you concentrate more and thus shoot better. 😉
Just a reminder that we go indoors from 1st October. Club shoot times are as follows:
Tuesday, Wednesday & Friday @ 19:00 to start at 19:30
