Archery club news



About White Rose Archers

We are a friendly club based at Hebden Bridge in the Calder Valley and like to feel that we make new members welcome.

We meet for regular shoots and competitions on Sundays. Members also shoot on Wednesdays and in the afternoon/early evening on Thursdays during the summer. Shooting takes place in the picturesque setting of our home field which we share with Hebden Bridge Cricket Club.

Over the course of the year we hold a number of club competitions, have a look at our club calendar for details. These are mostly handicapped and all are open to all club members although there is no pressure to compete if that is not your thing. In October we hold an open longbow competition which is very well regarded and attracts archers from clubs all over the area.

We have qualified GNAS coaches in the club and run beginners’ courses which teach the basics of archery and Grand National Archery Society rules of shooting.

Dates and other news will be updated here. Check the page links for other information.
