March 2017 newsletter

This month’s Frostbite Shoot attracted more members than last month, but the threat of heavy rain and strong wind [which didn’t materialise] had its effect! Winners on the day were Jason Millard [recurve], Lee Waterfield [compound], Geoff Quartermaine [barebow] and Mac Crisp [longbow].

Our annual Indoor Championships were well attended. Our Champions for the winter season are Martyn Smith and Linda Millard [recurve], Lee Waterfield [compound], Mark Allsopp [longbow], Geoff Quartermaine [barebow], Alice Wood-Stevens [junior recurve] and Abigail MacMurray and Eric Burton [juvenile recurve]

After Easter we move outside and shoot the longer distances again.

The first of our Beginners Courses for the year starts on 22nd April. Details are on our website [sherwoodarchers.org.uk] and we look forward to introducing some of our readers to our sport. It really is a sport for all ages and abilities – totally inclusive – we all shoot together! We look forward to seeing you on one of our courses.


Sherwood Archers are a friendly club shooting on our own field on the outskirts of Southwell. We are very fortunate to have our own shooting area that members are able to use every day of the week, competitions permitting.field shoot

During the summer our club nights are Tuesday for informal shooting, and the regular Club night on Friday which includes our Juniors, where there are at least 2 qualified coaches on hand.

We run beginners courses throughout the summer, and are pleased to be able to offer individual tuition, if coaches are available.
We offer a Subsidised Bow Rental scheme, to assist archers with getting into the sport.

The Club applied to Archery GB to become an Ontarget Club with specialisms for Young People and the Community. The Club are happy to announce that the Archery GB panel approved our application and we are now an Ontarget Club with specialisms for Young People and the Community.

New Club House – Better Facilities

We’ve Made it!


Sherwood Archer’s members have worked extremely hard on fund raising events, hosting Competitions and running beginner’s courses. These combined with the generosity of our members have raised the total needed.

For those of you who have been down the field recently you will see that we are progressing with the new clubhouse and it is nearly ready for members use. For the present we wish to reiterate that the building is NOT to be used for indoor shooting. 
We should all be proud of our achievement in the time that it has taken. 

We have raised £35,000 towards our £35,000 target! Thank you for your support and please feel free to use the donate button below to make a contribution.

Change to Clout Shooting Rules

The clout rules have been updated and as such our field is no longer suitable for shooting clout. Therefore with immediate effect NO CLOUT SHOOTING IS ALLOWED.
