We are a friendly club made up of Students, Staff and Alumni of University of Aberdeen and Students of RGU and NESCOL. We are based at Aberdeen Sports Village during the indoor season and on the King's Pitches at the UoA Campus during the outdoor season. We are as enthusiatic about archery as we are about socialising so whether you come along to training for the bows or the banter, there's something for everyone.
We teach Olympic Recurve archery in our beginner's course and we have archers in the club who shoot several other styles, including compound, barebow and traditional. All styles and experience levels are welcome and we have good links with local clubs if more experienced archers wish to seek out extra coaching. We compete at University level competitions, SSS and BUCS, and also compete within the Scottish Archery Association (SAA).
From September until April we shoot and compete indoors, after April we move outside. We like to have fun so we also organise fun shoots and socials.
Have you always had your eye out for an archery club? Did you watch The Hunger Games and think: maybe I could do that? Or are you just looking for a relaxed group to socialise with that also gets you off your sofa? Whatever the reason, if you'd like to give it a try, don't hesitate! Archery is a great way to focus and take your mind off things, it gets you moving and some would say there's nothing more satisfying than seeing your arrow fly into the middle of the target. Sign up and get in touch so that we can get your archery journey started, while we work towards getting some training up and running. We are looking forward to meeting you!
If you have any questions, please send us an email or a message on one of our social medias and we'll get back to you as soon as we can.
Who can become a member?
You can become a member of our club if you are a student/alumni/staff at University of Aberdeen or student at Robert Gordon University or North East of Scotland College. Please note that as of 2016/17, non-student members must be Archery GB affiliated through a non-university club. This has been put in place for all student archery clubs by Archery GB. The reduced membership fee for non-students is due to the club not covering the affiliation costs for these members. If you are Staff or Alumni, please get in touch and we will help you get affiliated with ArcheryGB, either through another local club or directly with ArcheryGB themselves.
