We shoot 3 times a week
We shoot Tuesday and Thursday evenings and on Saturday mornings. We ask members to arrive approximately 15 mins earlier to help move equipment and set up the range.
Indoor season, 7pm to 9pm and 9am – 12noon on Saturday.
Outdoor season we shoot from 7pm- 9pm mid week and 9am-12noon on Saturday.
Outdoor season midweek set-up can sometimes start from 6.30pm depending on the availability of the keyholder.
Our venue allows us to move into the indoor range during our outdoors season should the weather be too bad to shoot, therefore members have the opportunity to shoot all year round making full use of their shooting fees.
Fenland Archery Club was founded in September 2006 by 13 like-minded local archers with the goal of addressing the need for a premier quality archery experience in Whittlesey near Peterborough. As well as the opening of Fenland Archery Club other achievements of the founders have been county recurve and compound champions, a Grand Master Bowman once ranked 21st in the UK, county champions in longbow, an East Anglian champion, a county team manager, level 1, 2 and 3 coaches and a County Coaching Organiser.
The club has a stated aim of promoting archery in all its forms is affiliated to Archery GB (which is the trading name of the Grand National Archery Society (GNAS).
Since its inception, the club has grown in size and experience and continues to grow year on year. We have plenty of capacity to grow and we regularly run beginners courses to allow prospective new members to develop the basic skills necessary to become safe and confident members of the archery community.
Despite being a relatively young club, members have been very successful in local and regional competitions, winning both the East Anglian and Cambridgeshire titles in both longbow, compoundand recurve disciplines.
Members shoot all common bow types including Recurve, Compound, Flatbow,Horse Bow and of course the English Longbow although the dominant bow styles are recurve, longbow and compound. Please note though that only target arrows are allowed in the club, that means no Bodkins or hunting tips. Also because we shoot on school grounds we cannot use arrows that have shafts made completely from carbon fibre as we may not be able to find them with a metal detector if we miss the target and damaged carbon fibre shafts can be quite hazardous if handled without care, of course this does not apply to wooden arrows.
Members of the club are also encouraged to help support charity events when we hold them, if they are able to of course.
If you are already an experienced archer and would like to see what the club is like dont hesitate to contact us.
