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.


Unfortunately because of Covid 19 restrictions White Rose Archers are not taking on any new members at the present time.  Please click here for more information.

Tournaments and events:

January – WA25 – (postponed until shooting resumes)

This handicapped competition round will be a WA25 (technically an indoor round) – 5 doz arrows at 25 metres on a 60 cm face.  Submit as many scores to Sheila and Richard as you wish – they will use your best.  Outdoor handicaps will be applied for everyone shooting this round.

There are 60cm faces available in the clubhouse – keep them afterwards for your personal use as with the other target faces.

As we currently do not have a line marked out at 25 metres, you will have to measure it out.

Beginners’ Course:
Cancelled until further notice.

Please note:

The shooting fee for seniors is £1.00 and 50p for juniors if you have chosen to pay per visit (see Membership page for other options).  To be paid on the field.

During the current restrictions could you please email your results to Sheila and Richard Hudson.  Do not leave completed sheets in the clubhouse as they cannot be processed safely. Thank you.

If you wish to purchase Osprey badges as replacements or to fill gaps in your achievement record please contact Sheila Hudson.
