We are an amateur field archery club based in North Wales. We run beginner’s courses for those wanting to get into archery and have an active and dedicated group of members.
Get into the woods with field archery
This is a great way to get into the sport as it is the most natural form of shooting. It is based around shooting in woods, forests and open ground and if you ever played ‘bow and arrows’ as a kid, then this is that. You, with a bow and arrows in the woods, it’s a chance to release your inner Robin Hood.
Can anyone learn archery?
Anyone can take up the sport, but as we are a field archery club and based on a mountain, it is not really suited to anyone who has serious mobility issues or wheelchair-bound.
For this, you’d be much better to contact a target club that shoots on a school playing field or indoors in the school gym. We, of course, want to be inclusive to all people, but the demands of field archery, are not suited to everyone.
Archery for all ages
If you are physically able and want to get into this sport, then you really can’t beat field archery. Our minimum age for juniors is 7, but are happy to accommodate younger archers where possible. Junior archers must be accompanied by an adult at all times. We have no upper age limit and we welcome archers, new or experienced. If you’d like to learn then we offer beginner’s courses throughout the year.
Archery governing bodies
There are many national and international bodies and their UK counterparts. There is World Archery (WA) with AGB being the UK affiliate and IFAA with WFAA, EFAA, and SFAA being the Welsh, English, and Scottish affiliates.
Plus NFAS, which is the body solely focused on field archery.
NFAS is a governing body that only shoots field and has thousands of members throughout the UK. NFAS has some very good archers but is much more focused on the enjoyment of the sport rather than performance.
The main focus of AGB is target archery although they are also involved in other forms and 3D. They run the Olympic team and also are responsible for the team that enters any WA events including The World and European 3D Championships.
