Droitwich Archery Society
Founded in 1967, our aim is to offer a first-class archery club, both technically and socially, to all those interested in the sport. We pride ourselves in catering for both the recreational archer and also those who wish to train and compete at the highest level they can.
In recent years the club has been particularly dynamic and has expanded to be one of the largest in the County. Many of our members are extremely competitive, with large contingents of Droitwich archers appearing both at Open Tournaments around the country and shooting for the County Squad. We are particularly proud of the expansion and performance of our Junior section.
Shooting Venues and Times (See Maps & Directions page)
Indoor (winter) season:
Our winter home, from October to March, is the Sports Hall at Droitwich High School, where we can accommodate 10 targets and 40 archers on a 20 yard range. During the winter we shoot on Tuesday evenings 19:00 - 22:00, and Saturday mornings 10:00 - 13:00.
Outdoor (summer) season:
From April to September we shoot at our summer ground on the edge of Hanbury (nr Droitwich). We have four designated practice sessions: Tuesday and Thursday evenings from 6:30, Saturday mornings from 10:00 and Sunday afternoons from 14:30. Shooting normally continues for 2 -3 hours or until dusk, depending on the time of year.
Members who have paid the ‘anytime’ supplement have access to our outdoor field 24/7 - subject to certain conditions.
Car parking and toilet facilities are available at both venues and both are suitable for archers using a wheelchair.
Prospective members are welcome to visit and watch our archers in action, but please telephone a member of the committee first.
Liability insurance for members is provided by the Grand National Archery Society, our governing body, and covers all authorised activities of the club. All of our activities are conducted in strict accordance with the provisions of this insurance cover. A summary of the cover is available on request.
