Where we shoot

The Club has made the transtion to our new field at Highbridge Farm, Allbrook (SO50 6HN) and all outdoor shooting is there. This is only a few minutes from Junction 12 of the M3.

During the winter, we shoot indoors on Tuesday evenings using the Sports Hall of Thornden School to the north of Eastleigh and Chandler's Ford (also just off the M3 at Junction 12). "Frostbite" rounds for postal league competitions are still shot outdoors during the Winter!

When the evenings are light enough (roughly April to October), the shooting moves back outside.

When Can I shoot?

Outdoors

The field is available to Club members for shooting during daylight most days during the summer. All other dates agreed with the club by our landlords and will be posted to the Calendar of events page if there is time. Please allow sufficient time to clear all equipment from the field should it be required.

There are regular beginners' lessons most Saturday morning from 10:30 until 12:30 normally followed by coaching sessions for improving archers in the early afternoon. Club Target Days are normally arranged on Tuesday evenings during the Summer.

The field is marked out in yards (solid lines) and metres (broken lines).

Indoors

Indoor archery takes place at Thornden School during the winter on a Tuesday night from 18:45-21:45 October - March: cost normally £4.00 per evening. Members of the club are expected to help in setting up and removing equipment. During the indoor season our indoor club championships take place. We also enter postal league competitions.
