An update on the new club, Towcester Archers

An update on the new club, Towcester Archers

“After a few months of not having too much to report in terms of updates, we now have a much better idea of when we hope to get the club started. And it’s good news…!

This afternoon we had a catch up meeting with Towcestrians Sports Club, and firstly they confirmed that the development plans which involve the cricket pitch and the area which we have been offered to use as a permanent range, have been badly delayed because of the extremely wet weather. Realistically, it could be at least nine months before that work is complete.

But, the good news is that Tows are more than happy for us to use the existing rugby pitches until the permanent range is ready. So we are now aiming to have our first club shooting session around 9th or 10th May (bank holiday weekend). Our first beginners course will also hopefully be arranged for around that time.

The next step is to hold a couple of open drop-in sessions at Towcestrians. The first will likely be over the weekend of 14th & 15th March, with the second being the following weekend. Dates and times for these will be confirmed this coming week. The sessions will be a chance for anyone interested in joining the club to come along, say hello, ask any questions and perhaps even join the club.

Of course if anyone has any questions in the meantime please send us a message via the Towcester Archers Facebook page, or by emailing us at

For anyone wanting to complete a beginner’s course before joining the club, we highly recommend contacting Indoor Archery Ltd in Brackmills, Northampton. Course sessions with them can be done at times to suit you.”
